Anguilla declared COVID-19-free, prepares for reopening

ANGUILLA — The island of Anguilla is getting ready to reopen its borders after being declared COVID-19-free by the World Health Organization (WHO).

As part of the continual review of the transmission classification of COVID-19 cases, Anguilla’s Ministry of Health was notified on June 16 that the island’s classification had been changed from “sporadic cases” to “no cases”. The change is reflected in WHO’s situation report, which was published on June 18.

“This is an important milestone and a major achievement for Anguilla,” said the Ministry of Health and the Government of Anguilla, which also thanked its people for their continued cooperation moving forward.

Anguilla’s borders remain closed to commercial international traffic through June 30. As the government gradually begins to reopen its borders, it is encouraging locals and future visitors to practice the range of control measures that have been in place over the last few months. This includes staying home if unwell, hand and respiratory hygiene, and maintaining a physical distance of at least three feet from others.
