Island reconnection roadmap

Updated advice

Updated 25 August

The Island moves to the final stage of the reconnection roadmap on the 26 August. The easing of restrictions allows:

  • resumption of standing alcoholic drink services
  • full reopening of nightclubs, including dancing
  • unlimited numbers of people permitted in homes and gardens
  • permission for large events, subject to risk assessment
  • removal of legal requirement to wear masks in indoor public places, except in ports and on public transport
  • an end to working from home as the default

All Islanders over the age of 12 are still required to wear a mask when using public and private hire transport (including taxis) and when at the bus station harbour and airport.

The past year has been difficult for everyone, we arrive at Stage 7 thanks to the behaviours and actions that islanders have taken to keep each other safe. As we enter Stage 7 of reconnection, we continue to adapt to life alongside COVID-19.

Whilst vaccination continues to play a vital role in reducing severe illness and death it cannot be the only precaution we take.

To help keep our island connected we need to continue practicing some of the key behaviours and actions that have allowed us to reach Stage 7. This means we can reduce the likelihood of losing the daily activities we can now enjoy which we have worked so hard to regain.

COVID-19 remains a global pandemic we must remain ready to adapt and adjust our daily lives to the challenges of living in a pandemic.
