Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced a number of modifications to the current covid 19 measures.
Effective July 1, the curfew will begin at 11 p.m. on Monday to Saturday and at 6 p.m. on Sunday, and end at 5 am the next morning until August 11, 2021.
The existing protocols including the requirement for all travellers to present a negative COVID-19 test conducted within three days of travel remain in place, as does the requirement to self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival for persons who are not fully vaccinated.
As of July 1, fully vaccinated persons now have the option of taking an approved PCR test (at own cost) and upon presentation of negative results they can be released from the Quarantine Order.
Effective July 1, 2021, funeral services will be allowed with a maximum of 30 persons present inside the church, other place of worship or funeral home. This maximum limit of 30 persons includes mourners as well as clergy and any support personnel.
For burials, we are increasing the maximum number of persons who may be present at the graveside from 15 to 30. This includes mourners as well as officiating clergy, grave diggers and undertakers. As a reminder, burials will be allowed Mondays to Fridays.
