Changes in Covid risk for four countries

Jul 29, 2020


The Government of Jersey has updated its Covid-19 risk assessments for four countries. Jersey uses a traffic light system to categorise jurisdictions as either green, amber or red and applies different requirements for self-isolation and testing depending on their risk.

The changes announced today mean that from 00:01 on Thursday 30 July the Bahamas and Belgium will move from green to amber; Argentina will move from amber to red and Saudi Arabia will move from red to amber.


 

The Deputy Medical Officer of Health, Dr Ivan Muscat, monitors the classification of all countries and reassesses them regularly. He said: “We’ll continue to closely monitor the situation in all countries and will reclassify their risk as the evidence demonstrates this is necessary.”

The Countries Risk Assessment classification forms part of the Safer Travel Policy, which saw the Island’s borders open for non-essential travel on Friday 3 July.
