The Coronavirus pandemic is causing major disruption to many businesses across the Channel Islands. Hospitality, construction, non-food retailers and local owner-managed business have been particularly badly affected in the initial weeks, but there are significant headwinds facing all sectors. Adapting to the new business environment while protecting our residents and our emergency services presents challenges for us all.
The Jersey and Guernsey Governments have introduced a range of support services including Payroll Co-Funding Schemes. Jersey’s response measures can be found on the Jersey Government’s dedicated Covid-19 webpages, with Guernsey’s support package available from the Guernsey Government’s dedicated webpages.
Our team’s safety during the pandemic has been our priority, and we instigated and adapted our existing disaster response plan ahead of the Islands’ being placed in lockdown on 24 March in Guernsey and 30 March in Jersey. Our team is successfully working from home and remains available to support our clients.
