The prohibition on entertainment in Jamaica ceases as of today, March 18, 2022.
Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, made the announcement at the House of Representatives yesterday (March 17).
Mr. Holness said:
“The permits granted will include a condition that the number of persons in any venue must be below 70 per cent of the capacity. This condition will be kept until the 15th of April 2022,”.
In addition, certain restrictions currently applicable to hospitals, nursing homes, infirmaries and correctional facilities will become matters for policy at the level of the Ministry of Health and Wellness, the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, and Ministry of National Security, as applicable.
“I re-emphasise, we are not declaring an end to the pandemic. There are still outbreaks happening all over the world. We are maintaining the management of the disease under our existing public health laws,”.
Jamaica’s COVID-19 positivity rate on March 16 was 4.8 percent.
