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.

As part of the risk based management approach, the Government of Jamaica emphasizes that unrestricted movement in Jamaica of persons coming from countries where there is active transmission poses a high risk of exposure for all persons in Jamaica.

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.
