The Houses of Parliament in Jamaica made history yesterday when it held its first virtual Parliamentary meeting using the remote conferencing platform, Zoom. 

The measure is the latest in the Parliament’s efforts to modernize its operations and increase its use of Information and Communication Technology.

Meeting virtually allowed the members of the committee monitoring Jamaica’s COVID-19 response to adhere to physical distancing guidelines.

The Public Broadcasting Corporation of Jamaica streamed the committee meeting on its cable channel and through Facebook and YouTube.
