Jamaica News: If Christmas celebrations lead to a spike in COVID-19 cases the opening of schools for face to face classes could be put off.
That’s part of the message from Prime Minister Andrew Holness in appealing to Jamaicans to take responsibility for their actions over the Yuletide season to beat back COVID-19.
He said the COVID-19 protocols must be followed over the holiday season to prevent a spike in numbers in January.
“These are not normal times, and we will not be able to celebrate Christmas in the normal way this year. Celebrating Christmas in the normal way would mean keeping our schools closed. We must continue to be vigilant and responsible over the next few months, starting with the upcoming Christmas season”, said Prime Minister Holness.
In that regard, the Prime Minister appealed to all Jamaicans to celebrate Christmas responsibly and limit celebratory gathering to immediate family members.
He announced an extension, to January 15, of several of the measures that were in existence and announced tightened curfew hours on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. In addition, the ban on parties and shows continues as is the ban on funeral services. Gatherings for public or private events must remain at maximum 15.
