President of the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association, Richard Pandohie, is hoping the Prime Minister will announce a relaxation in the curfew hours during his presentation in Parliament this afternoon.

During an interview with Abka Fitz-Henley and Danielle Archer on Nationwide This Morning, Mr. Pandohie said with a decrease in covid-19 numbers there should be a relaxation in the hours.

He’s also hoping that convenient measures will be made for Jamaicans who are vaccinated to travel without undergoing a 14-day quarantine.

Meanwhile, President of the Medical Association of Jamaica, Dr. Andrew Manning said he believes the current curfew measures should remain in place.

He argued that based on recommendations from the World Health Organization, restrictions can be eased after a recorded positivity rate of less than 5-per cent in a 2-week period.

Dr. Manning noted that unfortunately, Jamaica is not yet at that target.
