Jersey launches new safety measures ahead of winter season

 Wednesday, September 30, 2020 


The government of Jersey recently announced important changes to the Safer Travel Policy on the island ahead of the winter season as staycations remain at the forefront of bookings. Authorities have introduced the latest safety protocols with the hope that the move will allow the destination to continue providing travelers with confidence to enjoy the island, without being worried about their own safety.

Jersey would be following the changes to the green, amber and red classification provided by the U.K. local authority areas based on current infection rate per 100,000 population data. The island would now be moving to the European benchmark of 50 cases per 100,000 as the green to amber threshold.

All visitors and islanders returning from a Green area will be required to be tested on arrival as well as on day five if they are still in Jersey. However, at present there is no requirement of self-isolation at the moment. Travellers will also be able to have a verified PCR test up to 72 hours before travelling to Jersey. In addition, the Visit Safe Charter, in partnership with the government of Jersey and Jersey Hospitality Association, has been developed to instill confidence in islanders and visitors to explore ‘theislandbreak’ as part of the ‘new normal’.
