Ministers introduce further border restrictions

15 January 2021

In response to the highly infectious new variants of COVID-19 being identified around the world, Ministers have agreed to introduce further restrictions at Jersey’s borders.

Anyone arriving in Jersey will now have to follow the regime for countries classified as Red and will have to isolate until they receive a negative PCR test on Day 10.

Guernsey will be reclassified as Amber, rather than Green, as a precautionary measure due to the presence of the UK variant. This will mean travellers from Guernsey will have to isolate until they receive a negative PCR test on Day 5.

These measures will be implemented at 00:01 on Saturday 16 January and will be under regular review.

The Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf said: “These are precautionary measures based on scientific advice which we hope will prevent any new variants from entering the Island community. 

“We will not be closing our borders due to our ongoing need to send Islanders to the UK for health reasons and to allow Islanders to return home.

“We are continuing to work with the UK to establish whether Jersey has any new variants, and we will be monitoring the situation closely.
