GoJ Statement: 2 Hour Exercise Omicron Policy

Dec 17, 2021


Please see below statement as signed off by the Health Minister.

A Government Spokesperson said:

Following discussions across the Government, Minsters have agreed that in the light of the current resilience of our healthcare services, and having considered the overall impact on Islander’s mental and physical wellbeing, all Omicron positive cases and Direct Contacts of an Omicron positive case should be permitted to take 2 hours daily outdoors exercise, during the period of their isolation.

This means that all Omicron positive cases and Direct Contacts of Omicron cases, who are currently isolating for 10 days from contact with a positive case, can now take 2 hours outside for daily exercise.

Ministers have asked STAC to review the overarching policy on Omicron Direct Contacts on Monday 20 December, and further updates will be provided next week.
