Under the protocols already declared, it should be noted that returning Jamaican nationals and non-nationals who are resident in Jamaica are under special measures of either “stay at home for returning residents” or quarantine depending on risk assessment.
High risk returning nationals and non-nationals who have tested negative for the coronavirus (COVID- 19) will also be placed on a stay at home for returning residents order for 14 days.
“Now the stay at home for returning residents measure that we are introducing under the new order is more restrictive than the stay-at-home measure for persons 65, and over, which would have previously obtained,” he disclosed during a virtual press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister Media Centre on Friday (June 12).
“Under the new stay at home order for returning persons, such persons are required to stay at home. However, they are allowed to leave their home only once per day to obtain food, medical supplies, conduct financial transactions, and physical exercise,” he said.
The Prime Minister also emphasized that these individuals will be required to work from home.
Therefore, during the period June 15-30; non-nationals who are not business travelers or tourists proceeding to the COVID-19 resilient corridor will be tested.
If the test is negative, persons will be placed in quarantine at their intended address or in a Government facility as determined by the health authorities for a period of 14 days.
If the test is positive, persons will be isolated either at their intended address or in a Government facility as determined by the health authorities.
