Jamaica’s tourism sector is now in reboot mode following the full reopening of the island’s borders.
On Monday (June 15) non nationals were once again allowed to enter the island. The tourism ministry revealed that over 100 health workers were present for the arrival of the first commercial passenger flight at the Sangster International Airport.
The flight with 180 passengers on board was comprised mainly of Jamaicans returning from various destinations in the United States.
Jamaica’s borders were closed in March as fears mounted over the accelerating spread of the coronavirus.
To date, there have been over 8 million recorded cases of COVID-19 globally and at least 439,755 persons have died as a result of the virus.
Locally, 10 people have died from the virus and the tally of recorded cases now stands at 617.
The most recent death is that of an 87-year-old female from the Corporate Area in Kingston.
