Prime Minister Andrew Holness has confirmed that the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line vessel, Adventure of the Seas, which is now in Caribbean waters will be allowed to dock in Falmouth, Trelawny at 12 mid-day tomorrow (May 19).
PM Holness says, the ship will be allowed to disembark passengers in groups of 200, as this will allow for the test to adequately be done and results provided.
This is because each person exiting the Royal Caribbean will be tested for the coronavirus.
Persons tested positive will be placed in state quarantine facilities and those negative will be allowed to go home, however, they will be home quarantined for 14 days and will have to check in with the health authorities via video call/messaging.
He also explains that the government has acquired 400 rooms at the courtesy of Bahia Principe Grand Jamaica, where some of the ship workers will be housed.
A total of 1044 ship workers are expected to exit the ship come tomorrow.
More details to come.
