Jamaica has officially been downgraded to a level 2 (from a level 3) by the CDC.
This is great news for this beautiful and popular island country!
The island of Jamaica is one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean and is frequented by travelers worldwide.
Jamaica has been a level 3 for quite some time and this news comes just in time as the island expects their best winter travel season since 2019.
The level 2 status for Jamaica puts them in the top 30% safest countries worldwide by the CDC.
The Hon. Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism for Jamaica said: “This is a very positive sign for Jamaica as we continue making progress on our path to recovery. This reduced designation is a testament to the work of our government and the Jamaican people themselves to mitigate the impact of this pandemic.”
“While not pre-COVID-19 numbers, there is every indication that Jamaica will have a very good winter season…certainly far better than last year…and a true testament that we are on the road to recovery.”
Jamaica has some of the best beaches, resorts, and is a top cruise port for many cruises each year.
