KINGSTON, Jamaica — Fast-food chain Mother's Jamaica Limited says it will be temporarily closing all 30 of its retail outlets islandwide, effective Sunday, in light of the growing threat of community spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The company, in a social media post late Thursday, said all Mother's, Mother's Bakery, Devon House Bakery, DHB Too and Pimentos locations will be closed until further notice.

The company said none of its employees have tested positive for the novel coronavirus and the closure is to ensure their continued safety. Employees will receive direct support in the form of Mother's care packages, the company said.

Mother's noted that the timeline for resuming operation will be under constant review and it will reopen as soon as possible.

The company urged customers to adhere to the health guidelines instituted by the Government.
