I would like to request some information under the freedom of information act
I would like to know how many Covid swabs have been done on people arriving in Jersey since lockdown finished and we opened borders
How many had a first swab negative and a second one positive
How many have declared that have been in Portugal (mainland) and had a positive Covid test
Is it possible to have this information?


Between 3 July (when borders opened) and 8 September, 65,306 Covid swabs were undertaken for people arriving in Jersey.
Five individuals (from borders) tested negative on their first swab and positive on their second one.
0 people declared that have been in Portugal (mainland) and had a positive Covid test.
