Gov't announces new measures to reduce COVID-19 spread

PRIME Minister Andrew Holness yesterday announced a raft of new measures designed to stem further spread of the dreaded novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) but made it clear that it was not the Government's intention to shut down the economy.

“We have to keep the economy going... we're not shutting down operations. What we're trying to do is to institute the measures that we believe will inure to greater practice of social distancing, which is what is now being recommended as the most effective way of controlling the spread of COVID-19,” Holness told journalists at a news conference after a meeting of the Cabinet at Jamaica House.

The measures, promulgated under Section 26 (2) of the Disaster Risk Management Act, requires all travellers to Jamaica from countries where there is local transmission of COVID-19 to be self-quarantined for up to 14 days.
