Prime Minister Andrew Holness has announced a relaxing of the all-island curfew hours, starting tomorrow.

The announcement follows a call by several private sector groups for the government to extend the business hours allowed under the curfew measures.

He says after the Labour Day holiday on Monday May 25, a new curfew order will be implemented.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Holness also gave an update on shopping and business days for quarantined communities in St Mary.

The Prime Minister is also dismissing criticisms of the distribution of care packages being provided by the government to the residents quarantined in the parish.
