France risk level rises

People arriving in Jersey from France will now have to receive two negative tests before being able to leave quarantine, it has been announced.

Under Jersey's travel guidance system, countries are generally designated green if they have 0-25 cases per 100,000 people, amber for 25-120, and red for more than 120.

Now recorded as having 26 cases per 100,000, France officially moved from green to amber from midnight on Sunday 9 August.

Passengers arriving from an amber country are required to undertake two PCR (diagnostic) tests on day zero and day five.

Under the rules, they must isolate until they receive a negative result from their second test.

Who's going to check up that from day one to five these tourists or people coming back to Island are self isolating, ok for Renouf (who quite honestly couldn't punch his way out of a wet paper bag) to state people will be fined if they don't follow rules, well I hope he keeps to his word!

Day trippers, what happens there?
