Jersey delays move to Level 1 lockdown

Jersey's government has announced that following advice from the Scientific and Technical Advisory Cell the Island will remain at Level 2 of its safe exit framework for at least the rest of July, with the move to Level 1 now being targeted in early August.

Health Minister Richard Renouf said: ‘Following the advice from STAC, ministers have decided to pause in Level 2 of the Safe Exit Framework, while we undertake additional monitoring to ensure that when we begin to move into, and through, Level 1, we do so as safely as possible.

‘The shared aim is to begin to move into Level 1 from within the first week of August.  Level 1 changes will be introduced in phases so that, as an Island, we continue to progress safely through the Safe Exit Framework. For now, however, we remain in Level 2, and Islanders and businesses should continue to follow the current Level 2 guidelines until they receive a further update.’

The move to Level 1 could allow gatherings of more than 40 people.
