Jamaica: Tighter COVID Restrictions Coming Monday

Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton has announced that tighter measures are coming next week to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Jamaica has recorded 2,896 cases with 29 deaths.

According to Tufton, Jamaica is now at the community transmission phase. 

Community transmission means that persons are contracting the virus without any link back to a confirmed case.

Tufton said the designation took effect on Wednesday following consultations with local health teams and the Pan American Health Organisation.

He said that the country can expect the number of COVID cases to increase over the next six to eight weeks.
