Keep doing the right thing this summer

Jul 20, 2022

The newly appointed Minister for Health and Social Services is encouraging Islanders to keep doing the right thing this summer, as COVID-19 cases rise.

The Island is now in a fifth wave of infections, with active case numbers reaching 1,503 today, Thursday 14 July.

Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Karen Wilson, said: “It is in this period of high infection rates that I would like to encourage Islanders to continue to follow the current guidance, which includes wearing masks in recommended settings.

“We are at an important stage in the current wave and if Islanders work together and follow the current guidance issued by Public Health, we will be able to move through the wave more quickly and ensure that we can enjoy a safe summer.”

Islanders are asked to keep doing the right thing with these five key actions

  • Book a PCR test if feeling unwell or have symptoms
  • Take an LFT twice a week
  • Wear a mask in indoor crowded places or when visiting vulnerable people
  • Open up windows in crowded places to increase ventilation
  • Keep up to date with their vaccination schedule

Islanders who have not yet had their first, second, or third dose of the vaccine can still book appointments at the Vaccine Centre here or by contacting the Coronavirus helpline on 0800 735 5566.

Further guidance, including a full list of symptoms, is here
