Jersey moved to Guernsey's highest risk list


Guernsey has placed Jersey into its highest risk travel category, meaning incoming travellers will now be forced to quarantine for two weeks.

Jersey was moved to 'Category Four' yesterday afternoon with immediate effect, alongside Estonia and Norway.

In order to be placed in the category, the region must have a covid prevalence rate of more than 100 per 100,000 for seven consecutive days. Arrivals from Category 4 countries and regions will be able to take a test on arrival with self-isolation for 14 days.

Jersey also joins the rest of Great Britain - apart from the Isle of Man and Scottish Islands - in the highest risk category.

It comes as the number of recorded covid cases in Jersey hit 152 this afternoon. 89 are symptomatic and 63 are not displaying symptoms. No one is in hospital.

Meanwhile, Guernsey remains on Jersey's green list.

Arrivals from green zones must have a covid test on arrival and on day 5, and self-isolate until their first negative result.

According to the latest publicly available figures, there are 13 individuals officially confirmed as having the virus in Guernsey.

If I was the Guernsey Government, I too would put Jersey in the "red zone"
