Covid-19 (Gatherings and Workplace Restrictions – Miscellaneous Amendments) (Jersey) Order 2021 R&O.3/2021

This Order was made by the Minister for Health and Social Services on Friday 15 January 2021 and comes into force on Saturday 16 January 2021. This Order makes various amendments to the Covid-19 (Workplace Restrictions) (Jersey) Order 2020 (“Workplace Restrictions Order”) and the Covid-19 (Gathering Control) (Jersey) Order 2020 (“Gathering Control Order”).
The changes to the Workplace Restrictions Order are as follows:
(a)  adds workplaces used for acupuncture to the list of workplaces that are prohibited from being open to the public;
(b)  creates an exception from the list of workplaces prohibitions, for a workplace that is open for the purpose of a therapeutic service that is provided by a doctor or registered professional;
(c)  alters the condition of opening, for retail and certain other workplaces, that requires people to maintain a 2 metres distance from each other, does not apply between people who are members of the same household;
(d)  it imposes a condition on the opening of a workplace, while it is used for the purpose of a gathering of a children’s activity group, that ensures that the gathering complies with the Gathering Control Order.

The changes to Gathering Control Order are as follows:
(a)  reinstates the higher limit of 20 people for gatherings for marriages, civil partnerships, funerals and religious services;
(b)  replaces the provisions on children’s activity groups and defines a children’s activity group and alters the way the number of people is calculated. It also disapplies the other control requirements if the gathering of the group has no more than 10 people present (who must be the children or the carers of the children) in addition to any number of people who are organising the children’s activities but are not themselves the children or the carers of the children. The group must have been established before 12 December 2020 and it must not gather in a person’s home;
(c)  alters the exception for day care of children, so that it only applies to day carers and accommodation that are registered under the Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law 2002. But a gathering can still be for the purposes of registered day care even if it includes children aged 12 or older (although the registration under that Law only applies in relation to younger children), as long as they are looked after with other children aged 11 or younger.
