Jamaican Woman Stuck In US Cries For Help

Stuck in the United States after what was supposed to be a weekend visit, Jamaican Juliet Brooks cried openly Wednesday night in an interview with The Gleaner, uncertain when the Government will allow her to return home.

The mother of two said her quick run to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, last Thursday on Independence Day has turned into a nightmare.

Brooks was scheduled to return last Sunday; however, after checking in her bags at the Ft Lauderdale International Airport, en route to Kingston, she was told by a JetBlue representative that she could not board the flight without authorisation from the Government under the JAMCOVID re-entry programme.

“When I was leaving Jamaica I was never aware that I had to get an authorisation to return home from a weekend trip,” she said, explaining that by the time she applied for permission and waited for a response, her flight had departed without her.
