The aim of the Safe Exit Framework is to ease restrictions as quickly as possible, while avoiding a sudden and rapid increase in infections and minimising other indirect health, social and economic impacts.
Level 2 is about being safer together as we move towards a 'new normal' of living with COVID-19. Together, we must achieve a balance of becoming more social, gathering a little more, opening activities, and beginning some connectivity off-island without triggering an upsurge of infections.
Read this policy and follow the public health guidance on gov.je. Anyone can catch COVID-19 and anyone can spread it. We reduce the risk of doing this by remembering the measures below:
- safer hygiene
- safer at a distance
- safer in smaller groups
- safer outside
Making the move from Level 3 to Level 2: Safer together
Ministers are committed to removing restrictions as early as it is safe to do.
Analysis shows that Level 3 measures have not resulted in a significant increase in cases. In the week beginning 8 June, case numbers remain very low and medical advice has confirmed that the conditions are safe to proceed to further easing of restrictions.
Accordingly, we can move carefully and deliberately to Level 2. Not all Level 2 measures will be introduced at the same time.
Throughout Level 2, the impact of the easing of restrictions on the spread of COVID-19 will continue to be closely monitored and the pace at which new measures are introduced will be informed by medical assessment of the potential risks.
If at any time public health monitoring indicates a rapid increase in cases, especially cases requiring hospital care, the easing of measures may be suspended – or if absolutely necessary, previous restrictions could be re-imposed.
No one wants to return to Level 4. Further lockdown will impact people's wellbeing, their livelihoods, and the culture of Jersey. A phased relaxation of such measures is better than a rapid return to stricter lockdown.
