Statement from the Minister for Health and Social Services

07 October 2020

​The Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf said:

“From Tuesday, 13 October all passengers arriving from green regions will need to self-isolate until they receive a Day 0 negative test result.

“With on-Island processing of tests providing results in a 12 hour average from Monday 12 October, this will mean isolation times are reduced for those passengers arriving from green regions if they test negative.

“We have always taken advice from medical, scientific and technical experts and remained consistent with our ‘suppress, contain and shield’ strategy which has kept cases to a minimum in the Island.

“We haven’t hesitated to make changes in response to external developments and this new requirement should give Islanders confidence that we are protecting the community with proportionate measures while minimising inconvenience for Islanders and other people when travelling.

“We now need to focus on the mitigating factors that are helping to reduce the risk of spread. These include public health advice to wear masks when inside in public places, physical distancing of 1m or more where possible and increased hygiene.

“I’d like to thank the public for their cooperation with these measures which protect the wider community. We will continue reviewing the Safer Travel Policy as infection rates change outside the Island, and we will maintain our considered approach to implementing restrictions.”
