US issues travel advisory for Jamaica & Caribbean countries

The US Department of State is advising Americans to reconsider travel to Jamaica due to health and safety measures as well as COVID-related conditions.

The advisory on Jamaica has been placed on the Department's website.

It was updated yesterday as the State Department lifted its blanket advisory warning American citizens against traveling abroad.

This came nearly five months after it issued the Level 4 "do not travel" warning — its highest advisory — against all international travel as the coronavirus spread.

The advisory was lifted in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meanwhile the United States, which has the highest number of persons suffering or killed by the coronavirus has warned its nationals from travelling to three CARICOM countries because of the situation regarding the virus in those countries.

Washington has issued a travel warning for Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, and Haiti because they are battling a surge in COVID-19 cases.

The advisory has been placed on the Department's website.

Nassau earlier this week announced a total shutdown of the country, while the cases in Haiti have been increasing on a daily basis.

Washington said in the case of Antigua and Barbuda, the island has lifted stay at home orders, and resumed some transportation options, and businesses operations.
