New arrivals to the island will not be able to visit the hospital, care homes or the prison while they await their test results, after politicians agreed to clarify the travel rules.
Yesterday, the States Assembly passed a proposal by Environment Minister John Young, who added extra measures to those agreed by Members after a lengthy debate two weeks ago.
The 'additional' measures include:
Pictured: Hospital visits are out for anyone self isolating and / or waiting for their Covid test results.
States Members also agreed to keep these arrangements in place for at least six weeks. After that, the Health Minister can decide to revoke, renew or amend them.
Backing the proposal, Chief Minister John Le Fondré said that it "effectively crystallised" the existing border measures in place, but Deputy Young had helped to make them clearer.
The proposition was passed by 40 votes to three.
