Changes to countries risk assessment 07/08/2020

Aug 07, 2020


The Government of Jersey has made additional changes to the countries risk assessment.

From 00:01 on Saturday 8 August, Iceland and the Netherlands will move from green to amber.

Passengers arriving from an amber country are required to undertake two PCR tests on day 0 and day 5, and isolate until they receive a negative result from their second test.

Countries are risk-assessed using a range of measures. These include the most recent 14-day case notification rate published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), recent trends in case notification, in-country testing rates, the frequency of travel between Jersey and the country of origin, and Jersey’s testing, tracing and health service capacity. Jersey then categorises jurisdictions as either green, amber or red and applies different requirements for self-isolation and testing depending on their risk.
