All cases are asymptomatic.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a total of 20,741 tests have returned a negative result.
329 individuals have tested positive.
Borders opened just over a week ago, with a testing system put in place at Jersey's airport and harbour. Anyone who returns a negative test result will not have to self-isolate for two weeks - unless they have recently visited a 'red-listed' country.
Among those to trial the airport testing regime was Jersey singer-songwriter Nerina Pallot, who praised the "really well organised testing system upon arrival and speedy results".
I don’t have COVID, it’s official! Well done @JERairport really well organised testing system upon arrival and speedy results.— Nerina Pallot (@ladychatterley) July 11, 2020
Others have also commended the speed of the swabbing, with one arrival reporting on Twitter today that they were "8 minutes from plane to taxi!"
The programme at Elizabeth Terminal, meanwhile, did encounter an issue in its first week after Condor Clipper passengers complained that they were not tested on arrival.
Government officials later said that the passengers were supposed to be tested at the airport instead, and that some passengers may have been confused.
They nonetheless pledged to review the procedure for Clipper arrivals.
