Coronavirus Advice for Businesses

Mar 10, 2020

The Government has designed a toolkit to help businesses minimise any disruption caused by Coronavirus. This information will be updated regularly, along with health and travel advice.

A case of Coronavirus has been confirmed in Guernsey, however there is no evidence that this resulted from, or has led to, local transmission. Travel advice has not changed as a result of this isolated case.

Since Coronavirus was declared a public health emergency, the Government has been making appropriate preparations, aligned with those of the UK Government:

  • Jersey is still in the containment phase – which aims to rapidly identify and isolate anyone with the virus to prevent it from spreading
  • Health and travel advice is updated daily as the situation develops
  • Islanders are urged to maintain good hygiene to protect themselves and others
  • Government departments are checking their business continuity plans and preparing for a realistic worst-case scenario
  • The Government is working closely with the Ministry of Justice, other Whitehall departments, Local Resilience Forums, and the Military
  • Advance monitoring at the airport and harbours will ensure that arriving passengers know what to do if they develop symptoms
  • The Emergencies Council is meeting next week, chaired by the Chief Minister, to clarify preparations.
 Businesses wishing to display public information posters can collect them from Government offices in Broad Street or Customer and Local Services. Posters are also available online to print.
