The Government has designed a toolkit to help businesses minimise any disruption caused by Coronavirus. This information will be updated regularly, along with health and travel advice.
A case of Coronavirus has been confirmed in Guernsey, however there is no evidence that this resulted from, or has led to, local transmission. Travel advice has not changed as a result of this isolated case.
Since Coronavirus was declared a public health emergency, the Government has been making appropriate preparations, aligned with those of the UK Government:
Businesses wishing to display public information posters can collect them from Government offices in Broad Street or Customer and Local Services. Posters are also available online to print.
- Jersey is still in the containment phase – which aims to rapidly identify and isolate anyone with the virus to prevent it from spreading
- Health and travel advice is updated daily as the situation develops
- Islanders are urged to maintain good hygiene to protect themselves and others
- Government departments are checking their business continuity plans and preparing for a realistic worst-case scenario
- The Government is working closely with the Ministry of Justice, other Whitehall departments, Local Resilience Forums, and the Military
- Advance monitoring at the airport and harbours will ensure that arriving passengers know what to do if they develop symptoms
- The Emergencies Council is meeting next week, chaired by the Chief Minister, to clarify preparations.
