Jersey has announced its Covid-19 roadmap for releasing the Island from Covid-19 restrictions, with a series of stages targeting full release by mid-June.
The measures announced yesterday do not address the Island’s border restrictions. Travel policy is due to be considered by ministers next Tuesday with further announcement expected shortly after.
Key changes within the Island will occur at intervals of about a month to allow an impact assessment for each stage informing whether subsequent changes will go ahead.
- From 15 March - household mixing by up to ten people, indoor sport may resume
- From 12 April - pubs able to sell alcohol without the need for accompanying food, outdoor gatherings of up to 20, work from home guidelines partially lifted
- From 10 May - social distancing orders revoked and replaced with less restrictive guidance, limits for indoor gatherings and weddings raised to 20 and 40 respectively, remaining work from home guidance will lapse.
Impact assessments will consider matters including case numbers, vaccination progress, and the presence of variants within the Island before confirming each stage
Chief Minister John Le Fondré praised Islanders for their ‘cooperation and absolute commitment’ saying that ‘the finish line is in sight but we can’t make the mistake of sprinting towards the end, we must all reach the finish line together.’
Jersey’s full roadmap to reconnection is published on the Government website.
