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

From 00:01 on Friday 11 September, the following changes will be made to the countries risk assessment:

  • Curacao, Hungary, Slovenia and Turkey will move from green to amber.
  • French Polynesia and Paraguay will move from amber to red.
  • South Africa and Oman will move from red to amber.
  • Australia,Singapore and South Korea will move from amber to green.

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. Passengers arriving from a red country are require to undertake a test on arrival and isolate for 14 days.

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.
