Four hundred Jamaican crew members who arrived on a ship in Falmouth Pier, Tuesday are this evening in quarantine at a St Ann hotel.

This follows the disembarkation of 200 today at Falmouth Pier.

As was the case Thursday, the 200 Jamaicans were transported by Jamaica Urban Transit Company, JUTC, buses to Bahia Principe Resort, Runway Bay, St Ann. 

They were taken twenty to a bus, following the taking of samples at pier side.

More than 600 Jamaicans are expected to be processed and disembark remain on board the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas. 

However, there will be no further processing and movement off passengers before Sunday.

The authorities are awaiting results from the samples taken Thursday and Friday.

For those samples that return negative, the individuals will be allowed to go home for self-quarantine, under strict conditions and monitoring by the Jamaican Government.

The release of some of the 400 taken in over the last two days will create space at Bahia Principe and at Jewel Paradise, both in Runaway Bay for more of those still on board, Adventure of the Seas. 

That ship is expected to leave Falmouth as early as Tuesday.

Another ship with crew from a different cruise line, with Jamaican crew stranded overseas, is expected in a Jamaican port by Tuesday.
