Health and Wellness Minister, Dr Christopher Tufton, says there is no need to quarantine the communities in West Kingston and those in Norwood, St James.

He says the public health team has confirmed five cases of COVID-19 in West Kingston and eight in Norwood.

The team visited the communities after a spike in COVID-19 cases was detected last week.

The Health and Wellness Minister says the team collected 1-hundred and 65 samples in Norwood.
