Entertainment events on alert as Jamaica sees first case of COVID-19

With confirmation of Jamaica's first case of COVID-19 on Tuesday, players in the local entertainment industry are already examining the possible fallout in the sector should the virus spread. 
Concerns are being raised about carnival events as the season is currently underway. 
The three major carnival bands Bacchanal Jamaica, Xaymaca International, and Xodus Carnival released a statement about doing their part to minimise the spread of the virus.
Meanwhile, premiere music festival Reggae Sumfest is also on alert as a number of international supporters are expected to take over Montego Bay come July. 
Sumfest boss Joe Bogdanovich also issued a statement revealing that hand soap and paper towels will constantly be stocked in the washrooms and available to all vendors. 
Additionally, hand sanitiser stations will be installed at entrances and key points throughout the venue, as well as a health hub with sanitiser and alcohol wipes and a nurse.
