CLARIFICATION ON ESSENTIAL SERVICES IN THE MARINE INDUSTRY
Monday 30th March 2020

Dear Members,
 
In accordance with the list posted by the government of Antigua and Barbuda of essential and non-essential businesses, we have sought further clarification on whether marinas and marine and yacht services are essential services.
 
It has been confirmed that Seaport Workers as listed in the advisory covers marinas and marine and yachting services.
 
As a reminder here is the full list further updated. With that said, we would like to advise our members, if your teams can operate from home, this is still a priority or if you can operate on a skeleton staff to minimize the number of people that are public-facing this is preferable.
 
Where you are open and operating a few suggestions for you:
•    Please adhere to strict hygiene protocols and social distancing guidelines of 6ft whether it be between clients or employees.
•    There are some useful infographics available on the PAHO website which may be useful for communication with your staff https://www.paho.org/en/topics/coronavirus-infections/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/covid-19-communication-materials
•    Please encourage staff not to share fake news and uncorroborated stories on social media.
•    If your business can operate from home, Zoom.us is a very useful communication tool once you have a group of people who need to communicate.
 
We will continue to update the ABMA website post pertaining to the Covid-19 and government-issued advisories and protocols. Please find the latest updates here.
 
If you have further challenges that have not yet been addressed, please email your concerns to news@abma.ag and we will pass it on to the relevant government agency to seek guidance and communicate back to members as we have official updates.
 
The Secretariat.
