Wednesday, August 12, 2020, 2:17 PM

As reported by the Jamaica Star a total of 19 rivers and 17 beaches have been ordered closed after they breached COVID policies.

The announcement was made recently by Local Government Minister, Desmond McKenzie. It was earlier reported that 700 events were kept without permission and those that got permission went as far as to break the law.


The government previously noted that any event that is being kept must have a maximum of 250 patrons and 30 workers.

Mr. Mackenzie has since invited operators to sit with him in a meeting to help plan moves going forward. The 36 banned locations will be closed for a total of 14 days starting this Friday, August 14.
