Jersey's Chief Minister has confirmed the Island will progress to Level 2 of its safe exit framework on Friday 12 June.

Business should continue to enable working from home wherever possible, but increased business activity in workplaces can take place within strict guidelines.

With certain exceptions, most businesses and organisations may open subject to strict obervation of public health guidance and sector-specific regulations on physical distancing and hygiene.  Those already open may allow more employees to return to the workplace, subject to undertaking an updated risk assessment and maintaining distancing and hygiene requirements.  Compliance spot checks will take place to ensure businesses and organisations are complying with these requirements.

Every business or organisation opening during the pandemic should plan in advance to reduce the risk of their operations spreading the virus. This includes undertaking a risk assessment bespoke to each work environment. 

More information, including details of which businesses may not yet commence, is available here.
