Plemont patrols pulled as lifeguards get covid


The lifeguard service has been temporarily withdrawn from Plemont after four lifeguards tested positive for covid.

A number of their colleagues have now been tested and are in quarantine as they await their results.

The RNLI said in a statement this afternoon: "The RNLI have temporarily withdrawn a lifeguard service from Plémont beach. Four lifeguards from the Jersey team have tested positive for Covid-19.

"As per Government guidelines, a number of the lifeguards’ colleagues are now self-isolating and awaiting test results.

"This means the Jersey lifeguard team is reduced in numbers and we’ve had to make the difficult decision to withdraw the lifeguard service from Plémont beach on a temporary basis. A full lifeguard service is still operating at St. Ouen's, St. Brelade's and Grève de Lecq, if you are planning on going into the water over the next few days, please head to one of these beaches."
