The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says arrangements are being made to accommodate Jamaican hotel workers who are stranded overseas due to the closure of Jamaica's air and sea ports.
In a statement Thursday afternoon, the Ministry said for persons who do not have family or friends in Atlanta, it made agreements with airlines to reroute them to other cities at no cost to them.
The ministry said it also secured agreement with some employers to either rehire the Jamaicans or to secure accommodations for them.
Foreign Affairs Minister Senator Kamina Johnson Smith says the Jamaicans are being housed in Wisconsin, Chicago, Miami, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Utah and Panama City.
Senator Johnson Smith said she received another report Thursday, that four more persons flew to Atlanta and were stranded.
She said they are safe and are being accommodated.
