All travellers arriving in Jersey must now self-isolate for 14 days.
The new measure, effective from Friday 20 March, includes people arriving from the UK, Guernsey, Europe and the rest of the world and applies whether or not travellers are displaying flu-like symptoms.
Solo travellers, who live alone, should immediately go into self-isolation. A family or group travelling together should all immediately go into self-isolation, and where a solo traveller is returning to a shared or family home, all members in that home should immediately self-isolate.
The new measure does not apply to essential workers, unless they have been in contact with anyone abroad with confirmed covid-19. If so, they must self-isolate for 14 days.
Anyone arriving who has no symptoms can use public transport for the short journey home if absolutely necessary, whilst following social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules.
They can also use their own transport, or get a lift home from another individual, providing they observe social distancing and clean the vehicle after use. Passengers should travel directly to their homes and not visit any shops during the journey.
Transport will be provided for any symptomatic travellers.
