COVID-19 travel classification of France (FOI)

COVID-19 travel classification of France (FOI)

At various stages throughout the Covid pandemic the government of Jersey posted various updated travel and isolation restrictions and rules on the website, under the Coronavirus web pages. 

However the website does not seem to keep a summary of the historic rules and restrictions posted. Jersey created a traffic light system listing the countries that were classified red, amber or green for travel restriction purposes.

What I want to know is: what dates France was declared red, amber and green for travel restriction and isolation purposes.

Or is there a way to access the historic Coronavirus updated posts and I can search through for what I need myself.

I am trying to build a historic timeline recording the Coronavirus events and the dates at which they were announced.


The Government of Jersey holds the following information in relation to the travel classification of France: 

3 July 2020

9 August 2020
