Staff members from the Jamaica Fire Brigade, PICA, DCS and Jamaica Customs are being asked to bring a work ID to verify employment. Persons are also reminded to bring proof of appointment. Additionally, persons 60 years and older are permitted to have one caregiver with them.
In the meantime, the Ministry wishes to remind persons who have taken their first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine that they are not fully protected until they have received both doses of the vaccine. With this in mind, persons are being reminded to continue to observe all the infection prevention and control measures – wearing of mask, maintaining physical distance of six feet or more and frequently washing hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizers. The provisions under the Disaster Risk Management Orders are also to be adhered to.
