(Jamaica Information Service Press Release) Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has announced new curfew hours, from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., seven days per week, effective Friday (October 29).

With the adjustment, Sunday will no longer be a no-movement day.

“This new curfew will remain in effect until December 10, 2021. I will have some consultations with interest groups, and I will definitely call up the Leader of the Opposition (Mark Golding) early so that we can have a consensus as to what to do [during] Christmas,” Mr. Holness said.

He was delivering a statement during the sitting of the House of Representatives on Tuesday (Oct. 26).

Closing hours for businesses is generally one hour before the curfew period. Curfews are among measures the Government has instituted to further contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Turning to other measures, Mr. Holness informed that the public gathering limit remains at 10 persons, and places of worship will continue to be restricted to having no more than 50 persons in attendance. No crusades, conferences or conventions are permitted.
