Public Health Guidance Entering Stage 7

Aug 25, 2021

On Thursday 26 August, Jersey will enter Stage 7 of the Reconnection Roadmap where the remaining Covid restrictions will be lifted.

Stage 7 includes:

  • unlimited gatherings in homes and gardens
  • resumption of standing alcoholic drink service
  • reopening of nightclubs, including dancing
  • large indoor and outdoor events

Businesses are expected to carry out a risk assessment of the workplace which should include the following:

  • ensure staff and customers do not attend if they are experiencing symptoms or receive a positive test result
  • put measures in place to protect staff and business continuity such as workforce screening, remote working, mask wearing and physical distancing where possible
  • prepare a detailed plan outlining how to manage a customer, staff member or other visitor who develops symptoms or receives a positive test result

Islanders are recommended to:

  • maximise ventilation by keeping windows open
  • support cleanliness and personal hygiene measures
  • physically distance where possible
  • use face masks in crowded or indoor areas where possible (masks remain mandatory in public transport, taxis and ports)

Minister for Health and Social Services, Deputy Richard Renouf, said: “I am pleased that we will be proceeding with Stage 7 of the Reconnection Roadmap on Thursday. This has been possible due to Islanders adhering to the guidance and taking part in our vaccination programme; this has meant that hospitalisation rates have remained low which is vital to the easing of restrictions.

“It is important that Islanders continue to follow the Public Health guidance. I’d like to thank Islanders for their continued support.”
