Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced three more confirmed cases of COVID-19.
This pushes the total number of cases in Jamaica to 19.
The new cases include a 38-year-old male US citizen with a history of travel from Boston who arrived March 14, a 30-year-old female with a history of travel from New York arriving in Jamaica on March 17 and a 60-year-old female, a retiree of Portland.
The prime minister also announced that with effect from 11:59pm on Saturday March 21, and for a period of 14 days in the first instance, Jamaica’s air and seaports will be closed to incoming passenger traffic.
However, Holness said outgoing passenger and cargo will be allowed.
