The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States has recommended that Americans avoid all non-essential travel to Jamaica as it says the risk of the virus is high in the country.
Jamaica yesterday recorded 30 new COVID-19 cases, pushing the tally to 958.
Some 745 persons have recovered with 149 active cases currently under observation.
The CDC says older adults, people with certain underlying medical conditions, and others at increased risk for severe illness should consider postponing all travel, including essential trips, to Jamaica.
If you get sick in Jamaica and need medical care, resources may be limited, it added.
