Health Advisory – Post Hurricane Tips

As Jamaica begins its recovery from the effects of Hurricane Beryl, the Ministry of Health & Wellness is advising the public to observe the following health tips:

• Do not go outside until absolutely necessary.

• Wear water boots or closed shoes.

• Wear gloves when clearing debris or disposing of dirty water.

• If you get a puncture wound, such as a nail stick or a cut, and you have not been immunized in the last 10 years, seek medical attention immediately.

• Do not allow children to play in the water outside.

• Ensure that bleach, kerosene and other harmful chemicals are properly labeled and kept out of the reach of children.

We encourage all Jamaicans to remain safe.
