Prime Minister Calls For Public Adherence To Curtail Spread Of COVID-19

Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, is encouraging individuals and establishments to comply with stipulated safeguards outlined by the Government to curtail further spread of the highly infectious coronavirus (COVID-19) in Jamaica.

His appeal comes against the background of two persons being arrested and charged for breaching regulations under the Disaster Risk Management Act.

Speaking at a press conference at Jamaica House on March 23, the Prime Minister emphasised that making arrests “is the last thing I want to do”.
