(Jamaica Information Service Press Release) Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says that the COVID-19 Subcommittee of Cabinet will meet over the weekend to review the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in the country.

The meeting comes as the island sees an uptick in cases of the virus.

Mr. Holness, who was addressing the House of Representatives on Wednesday (July 21), said that the meeting will, among other things, determine whether there may be need to tighten some of the current COVID-19 measures prior to their expiration on August 10.

He said that the nation will be notified via press conference, “possibly Tuesday, if we do intend to make any new changes to the Orders”.

“When the Cabinet Subcommittee on COVID meets on the weekend… it is very likely that there will be measures announced by Tuesday of next week; very likely. So, I was just using the opportunity to put Jamaica on notice and, seeing that Parliament will be on recess, to inform Parliament of the actions we are taking,” he noted.
