Answer

Question

What kind of test should I get and when do I need to get it?

Question

Do I need to quarantine?

Answer

No, you don't need to quarantine in Jamaica if you have a negative test. You will have to undergo a health screening when entering Jamaica. Our hotel, Tensing Pen, falls in the "resilient corridor". Under this measure, persons are required to remain at their hotel/resort within the corridor for the duration of their stay. They may, however, leave the hotel/resort to visit any tourist attraction, that is certified by the Jamaica Tourist Board to be a COVID-19 Resilient licensed tourist attraction located within the resilient corridor. The list of such attractions is available on the visitjamaica.com website. All travel to and from the attraction must be on transportation licensed under the Tourist Board Act.

Question
