  • Public gathering limit ten people
  • Places of worship 100 people
  • Weddings 100 people
  • Funerals and burials20 people

The Prime Minister also said the COVID pre-testing requirement (antigen or PCR) for travellers to Jamaica remains in effect.

However, fully vaccinated travellers who have a negative PCR test result upon boarding will NOT be required to go into quarantine on entering Jamaica.
