Angola, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia will be added to Jersey's red list countries at 4am Sunday 28 November to align with the UK's Joint Biosecurity Centre.
South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Namibia and Zimbabwe moved onto the red list at 12.00 midday Friday 26 November.
Passengers arriving in Jersey who have been in any of these countries will now be required to undertake 3 PCR tests - on the day of arrival, and on days five and ten - and will be required to isolate until they receive a third negative test result.
From 4am on Sunday 28 November, passengers arriving in the UK who have recently visited any of the Red List countries will have to enter Managed Quarantine (quarantine hotel) in the UK for 10 days, at their own cost. This includes passengers who are travelling onwards to Jersey. Until then, the existing transit arrangements remain in place.
Mirroring the UK Government's approach, anyone who arrived in Jersey before these countries were added to the Red List, and travelled to any of the 10 red list countries after Friday 12 November, should book a PCR test immediately, followed by a second PCR test 5 days later, regardless of whether they have already tested negative. Islanders are asked to call the Coronavirus helpline on 0800 735 5566 to book their PCR tests.
