Not sure how this will affect everybody, but here's what they said:

State of Emergency

I've heard that the bad guys find out who owns a gun, and then they go and kill that person to get the gun.

I remember the last State of Emergency.... seeing a few more military vehicles, tour bus just waved through at the checkpoints, no big deal for tourists in otherwords. The media on Canadian news channels was ridiculous, friends and relatives thought we were heading out to a war torn country! According to Jamaican news sources, the increased military presence has NOT resulted in more gang leader arrests but murder rates have decreased .

The SoE has forced a restructuring of when businesses can be open. The following are the guidelines:
The temporary business hours are as following:

Every place required by law to operate under a tavern licence from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m.

Petroleum filling stations from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Again, the State Of Emergency has been extended to Oct 28.

State of Emergency Extended

This seems to be only window-dressing, as they have roadblocks on the main roads, but anyone who knows the roads, can get around them on back roads.

And one time, when it was raining, nobody was even manning the checkpoint on the main road, when I went through.

Respect.
