30/03/2020Advice for islanders during lockdown period

​​

From 8am on Monday 30 March, the Government will instruct all Islanders who are not doing essential work to ‘stay at home’.

This means, everyone in Jersey is ordered to stay at home at all times from 8am on Monday 30 March, except for a limited number of reasons.

Reasons to be outside the home

People should only leave their homes for a total of 2 hours each day, and in the following limited circumstances:

  1. when you need to shop for food, medicine, and other basic necessities, which should be as infrequently as possible
  2. for daily exercise. This can include walking, cycling, running, exercising or caring for animals, provided you maintain social distancing from everyone outside your own household
  3. for any medical needs, including providing care

When outside your home or garden, you must maintain a safe social distance of two metres from anyone outside your own household.

Take advantage of Jersey’s open spaces (beaches, coast and countryside) where you are able to do so and where you can remain spread out from other people (avoiding narrow paths).

You should also avoid congregating in popular areas.

Everyone must follow this guidance, to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. This will be monitored and policed. If people disregard this order to Stay at Home, more restrictive controls are very likely to be introduced.

Staying at home advice

The Government has issued advice on how to prepare and manage daily life while staying at home as strict social distancing measures are amplified.

The new advice includes methods that all Islanders can take to practically prepare themselves and their families for staying at home, including:

  • exchanging personal contact details with neighbours, extended family members and friends
  • creating an essential contact list including, neighbours, schools, pharmacy and the helpline +44 (0) 1534 445566
  • ensuring access is available to everything needed for the duration of the self-isolation period, including food and medical supplies
  • talking with employers, family, friends and charities regarding getting help to access things needed
  • setting up online shopping accounts
  • considering activities you can do within the home, such as fitness workouts and a choice of leisure activities
  • planning for self-isolation measures for individual household members within the home

Staying at home for individuals and households

Social distancing

Shielding the extremely vulnerable from coronavirus

The guidance also sets out how to maintain safe social distance within the home if living with a vulnerable person, with children, pets and contains information for mothers breastfeeding. There is general advice on cleaning, hygiene, waste disposal, laundry and how to get better at home.

Islanders can find information regarding medical advice if illness becomes worse, by contacting your GP or the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. In the case of an emergency, dial 999 and let the operator know about any coronavirus symptoms.

Work and business

Work should be undertaken from home whenever possible.

People engaged in work that is designated as being essential to the safe running of the Island during this time are permitted to travel to and from their place of work when necessary. Social distancing and good hygiene must be practised at all times.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Essential and critical workers

Essential workers are people engaged in work that is essential to the continued safe running of the Island during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Critical workers are a smaller sub-set of essential workers in especially critical roles. 

If they are parents and cannot make arrangements for their children to be looked after at home, are being offered school or nursery places by government as a last resort. 

Critical workers and childcare

A further, very small subset of essential workers may need to travel into Jersey:

  • Health and care workers arriving into Jersey since Sunday 22 March are required to self-isolate (like most travellers), and a risk assessment process is then undertaken by the Health and Community Services department to determine whether it is safe for them to leave isolation to go to work.
  • Other essential workers arriving into Jersey since Friday 20 March are asked to self-assess whether it is really necessary for them to work on-site or whether they can isolate for 14 days like most travellers (for example, working

Weddings and funerals

Following a review by the Competent Authority Minister on Friday, it was decided that weddings booked from 30 March to 30 June will not be permitted to go ahead, apart from in special circumstances such as where one or both individuals are subject to end of life care, including COVID-19. 

Funerals are permitted to take place, although these may only be attended by the immediate family, and social distancing must be observed between people from different households.

 

  
26/03/2020Update from Sadie Le Sueur-Rennard, Connetable of St Saviour

Over the course of this week, I was made aware by our recycling Partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues, picked up on our recycling collections. This poses a significant a health risk to St Saviours and St Heliers employees and, I therefore regret to inform our parishioners that I have made the decision with St Helier to take effect from the Friday 27 March 2020 to suspend our recycling service until further notice.

I want to assure our Parishioners that the refuse services (black Bags) will still be continuing as normal for now.

I would like to assure my parishioners that I will be working hard to recommence our service as soon as possible safe to do so, and ask for understanding in this difficult time our island is experiencing.

Stay safe, protect your loved ones and be positive.

25/03/2020Recycling Services – Contamination level increases 

​We are experiencing a significant increase in the volume of household waste as more parishioners work from home and receive more packages delivered directly to home addresses. We ask that parishioners continue to place their waste in appropriate bins for collection on normal days.

**********************

We have been informed by our recycling partner "Parish of St Helier" that due to the rising number of parishioners working from home and the high number of packages being delivered, there has been a considerable increase of waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths which are raising contamination the recyclable items.

*** Please take extra care to not include food waste, tissues and other contaminants with the recyclable waste.***

 

Thank you and stay safe x x

24/03/2020Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

Coronavirus advice and information for Parishioners and businesses

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

In response to the challenges of Coronavirus, Government’s latest guidance and in the best interests of protecting our parishioners, volunteers, visitors and staff from a coronavirus outbreak, along with a number of workforce shortages to critical areas of our service, we have made the decision to close the Parish Hall Building as of Lunchtime Today (23.03.2020).

Parish Administration (our buildings) & St Saviour Community Support Group Services

  • Office buildings will be closed to the public but the office is still operating as normal (08:45-15:45).
  • We are accessible by telephone on 735864 or by e-mail at  stsaviour@poss.gov.je.
  • Online Services such as Rates, Driving Licenses (apart from provisionals) and electoral can be completed online. Please visit My Parish Online for more information.
  • Any other queries may be left in the letterbox which will be dealt with on a daily basis.
  • St Saviour Community Support Group & Helpline for the vulnerable on 07797737480 and the Parish Hall on 735864.
  • Honorary Police Services – based on medical advice, officer availability has greatly reduced, therefore officer availability may be affected at times, however, Duty Centenier phone is available 24/7. Parish Hall enquiries have been cancelled until further notice.

Committees, public meetings/events & church services

All public meetings and civic engagements have been cancelled until further notice, including Road Committee meeting, Rates Assessors & Honorary Police meetings, Rates surgeries, and other working social groups have also been suspended.

Controlled measures will be put in place for upcoming services, and we are working closely with funeral directors to try as far as possible to enable funerals to continue to take place.

Our church and our lovely Rector Peter Dyson and his team, confirmed; "we have decided that the church remains open and available for individual worship or as a refuge for thought and reflection. We, as a Church want to let our Parishioners know that they are not alone." Peter is very happy to speak with you and give support to any parishioner who wishes to contact him on 736679 or pwdyson@btinternet.com.


We will continue working to minimise disruption to our services, also to work hard to retain as many services as possible in line with Government of Jerseys guidelines. We know that changes to our services are frustrating at any time, but we have to prioritise our services in what is an unprecedented situation.

We’d like to thank Parishioners for their support and understanding. #Stay safe.

20/03/2020All arrivals in Jersey required to self-isolate for 14 days

With effect from 00:01 on Friday 20 March, the Government of Jersey is introducing new guidance for all travellers arriving in Jersey, wherever they began their journey. This includes the UK, Guernsey, Europe and the rest of the world.

The guidance is that all travellers arriving in Jersey must now self-isolate for 14 days. This is regardless of whether they are displaying flu-like symptoms or not.

  • Solo travellers, who live alone, should immediately go into self-isolation
  • A family or group travelling together should ALL immediately go into self-isolation
  • Where a solo traveller is returning to a shared or family home, ALL members in that home should immediately go into self-isolation

During the self-isolation period of 14 days, anyone who develops flu-like symptoms should call the helpline.

People are advised not to travel to the Island unless they have the ability to self-isolate for a full 14 days in Jersey.

Arriving passengers who are non-symptomatic can, where absolutely necessary, use public transport for the short journey (maximum 1 hour) to travel directly from arrival to their home, whilst observing social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules. They can also use their own transport, or travel with an individual collecting them, again subject to observing social distancing advice and cleaning 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.

The measure does not apply to essential workers coming to Jersey, as they should not affect our overall containment strategy and their presence in Jersey is very important to help us to keep the Island running. If essential workers develop symptoms of coronavirus within 14 days of travel they must self-isolate and self-refer. Any essential worker who has been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 individual abroad must self-isolate for 14 days. Essential workers are also advised to actively limit the frequency of travel into and out of the Island.

Medical advice has been updated and is constantly under review. This is based on the latest data.

Islanders are advised to only travel off-Island if it is truly essential, such as for medical care, to provide care for vulnerable dependents and for essential business that can’t be undertaken remotely by electronic or other means.

Anyone returning from anywhere abroad with symptoms of coronavirus should immediately self-isolate and self-refer by calling the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566.

The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm.

  
19/03/2020Connétables recommend you phone or email your Parish
 
Connétables say it is business as usual at Parish Halls but recommend you phone or email your Parish so they can deal with your enquiry. Contact details are on the Parish's home page.


This follows best practice advice and guidance to reduce the spread of the virus. The Parish can post any forms or leaflets you need and there are online services to renew a full driving licence, submit a rates return or to change a name and address.

 


Parish Hall Enquiries are likely to be deferred but individuals will be notified of the arrangements.

30/03/2020Advice for islanders during lockdown period

​​

From 8am on Monday 30 March, the Government will instruct all Islanders who are not doing essential work to ‘stay at home’.

This means, everyone in Jersey is ordered to stay at home at all times from 8am on Monday 30 March, except for a limited number of reasons.

Reasons to be outside the home

People should only leave their homes for a total of 2 hours each day, and in the following limited circumstances:

  1. when you need to shop for food, medicine, and other basic necessities, which should be as infrequently as possible
  2. for daily exercise. This can include walking, cycling, running, exercising or caring for animals, provided you maintain social distancing from everyone outside your own household
  3. for any medical needs, including providing care

When outside your home or garden, you must maintain a safe social distance of two metres from anyone outside your own household.

Take advantage of Jersey’s open spaces (beaches, coast and countryside) where you are able to do so and where you can remain spread out from other people (avoiding narrow paths).

You should also avoid congregating in popular areas.

Everyone must follow this guidance, to help suppress the spread of COVID-19. This will be monitored and policed. If people disregard this order to Stay at Home, more restrictive controls are very likely to be introduced.

Staying at home advice

The Government has issued advice on how to prepare and manage daily life while staying at home as strict social distancing measures are amplified.

The new advice includes methods that all Islanders can take to practically prepare themselves and their families for staying at home, including:

  • exchanging personal contact details with neighbours, extended family members and friends
  • creating an essential contact list including, neighbours, schools, pharmacy and the helpline +44 (0) 1534 445566
  • ensuring access is available to everything needed for the duration of the self-isolation period, including food and medical supplies
  • talking with employers, family, friends and charities regarding getting help to access things needed
  • setting up online shopping accounts
  • considering activities you can do within the home, such as fitness workouts and a choice of leisure activities
  • planning for self-isolation measures for individual household members within the home

Staying at home for individuals and households

Shielding the extremely vulnerable from coronavirus

The guidance also sets out how to maintain safe social distance within the home if living with a vulnerable person, with children, pets and contains information for mothers breastfeeding. There is general advice on cleaning, hygiene, waste disposal, laundry and how to get better at home.

Islanders can find information regarding medical advice if illness becomes worse, by contacting your GP or the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566. In the case of an emergency, dial 999 and let the operator know about any coronavirus symptoms.

Work and business

Work should be undertaken from home whenever possible.

People engaged in work that is designated as being essential to the safe running of the Island during this time are permitted to travel to and from their place of work when necessary. Social distancing and good hygiene must be practised at all times.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Essential and critical workers

Essential workers are people engaged in work that is essential to the continued safe running of the Island during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Advice for businesses operating during Stay at Home restrictions

Critical workers are a smaller sub-set of essential workers in especially critical roles. 

If they are parents and cannot make arrangements for their children to be looked after at home, are being offered school or nursery places by government as a last resort. 

Critical workers and childcare

A further, very small subset of essential workers may need to travel into Jersey:

  • Health and care workers arriving into Jersey since Sunday 22 March are required to self-isolate (like most travellers), and a risk assessment process is then undertaken by the Health and Community Services department to determine whether it is safe for them to leave isolation to go to work.
  • Other essential workers arriving into Jersey since Friday 20 March are asked to self-assess whether it is really necessary for them to work on-site or whether they can isolate for 14 days like most travellers (for example, working

Weddings and funerals

Following a review by the Competent Authority Minister on Friday, it was decided that weddings booked from 30 March to 30 June will not be permitted to go ahead, apart from in special circumstances such as where one or both individuals are subject to end of life care, including COVID-19. 

Funerals are permitted to take place, although these may only be attended by the immediate family, and social distancing must be observed between people from different households.

 

  
26/03/2020Update from Sadie Le Sueur-Rennard, Connetable of St Saviour

Over the course of this week, I was made aware by our recycling Partner "St Helier" that there has been a significant increase of contaminants such as cleaning wipes, tissues, picked up on our recycling collections. This poses a significant a health risk to St Saviours and St Heliers employees and, I therefore regret to inform our parishioners that I have made the decision with St Helier to take effect from the Friday 27 March 2020 to suspend our recycling service until further notice.

I want to assure our Parishioners that the refuse services (black Bags) will still be continuing as normal for now.

I would like to assure my parishioners that I will be working hard to recommence our service as soon as possible safe to do so, and ask for understanding in this difficult time our island is experiencing.

Stay safe, protect your loved ones and be positive.

25/03/2020Recycling Services – Contamination level increases 

​We are experiencing a significant increase in the volume of household waste as more parishioners work from home and receive more packages delivered directly to home addresses. We ask that parishioners continue to place their waste in appropriate bins for collection on normal days.

**********************

We have been informed by our recycling partner "Parish of St Helier" that due to the rising number of parishioners working from home and the high number of packages being delivered, there has been a considerable increase of waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths which are raising contamination the recyclable items.

*** Please take extra care to not include food waste, tissues and other contaminants with the recyclable waste.***

 

Thank you and stay safe x x

Coronavirus advice and information for Parishioners and businesses

Coronavirus (Covid-19) – what we’re doing

In response to the challenges of Coronavirus, Government’s latest guidance and in the best interests of protecting our parishioners, volunteers, visitors and staff from a coronavirus outbreak, along with a number of workforce shortages to critical areas of our service, we have made the decision to close the Parish Hall Building as of Lunchtime Today (23.03.2020).

Parish Administration (our buildings) & St Saviour Community Support Group Services

  • Office buildings will be closed to the public but the office is still operating as normal (08:45-15:45).
  • We are accessible by telephone on 735864 or by e-mail at  stsaviour@poss.gov.je.
  • Online Services such as Rates, Driving Licenses (apart from provisionals) and electoral can be completed online. Please visit My Parish Online for more information.

  • St Saviour Community Support Group & Helpline for the vulnerable on 07797737480 and the Parish Hall on 735864.
  • Honorary Police Services – based on medical advice, officer availability has greatly reduced, therefore officer availability may be affected at times, however, Duty Centenier phone is available 24/7. Parish Hall enquiries have been cancelled until further notice.

Committees, public meetings/events & church services

All public meetings and civic engagements have been cancelled until further notice, including Road Committee meeting, Rates Assessors & Honorary Police meetings, Rates surgeries, and other working social groups have also been suspended.

Controlled measures will be put in place for upcoming services, and we are working closely with funeral directors to try as far as possible to enable funerals to continue to take place.

Our church and our lovely Rector Peter Dyson and his team, confirmed; "we have decided that the church remains open and available for individual worship or as a refuge for thought and reflection. We, as a Church want to let our Parishioners know that they are not alone." Peter is very happy to speak with you and give support to any parishioner who wishes to contact him on 736679 or pwdyson@btinternet.com.


We will continue working to minimise disruption to our services, also to work hard to retain as many services as possible in line with Government of Jerseys guidelines. We know that changes to our services are frustrating at any time, but we have to prioritise our services in what is an unprecedented situation.

We’d like to thank Parishioners for their support and understanding. #Stay safe.

20/03/2020All arrivals in Jersey required to self-isolate for 14 days

With effect from 00:01 on Friday 20 March, the Government of Jersey is introducing new guidance for all travellers arriving in Jersey, wherever they began their journey. This includes the UK, Guernsey, Europe and the rest of the world.

The guidance is that all travellers arriving in Jersey must now self-isolate for 14 days. This is regardless of whether they are displaying flu-like symptoms or not.

  • Solo travellers, who live alone, should immediately go into self-isolation
  • A family or group travelling together should ALL immediately go into self-isolation
  • Where a solo traveller is returning to a shared or family home, ALL members in that home should immediately go into self-isolation

During the self-isolation period of 14 days, anyone who develops flu-like symptoms should call the helpline.

People are advised not to travel to the Island unless they have the ability to self-isolate for a full 14 days in Jersey.

Arriving passengers who are non-symptomatic can, where absolutely necessary, use public transport for the short journey (maximum 1 hour) to travel directly from arrival to their home, whilst observing social distancing advice. They must then follow the self-isolation rules. They can also use their own transport, or travel with an individual collecting them, again subject to observing social distancing advice and cleaning 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.

The measure does not apply to essential workers coming to Jersey, as they should not affect our overall containment strategy and their presence in Jersey is very important to help us to keep the Island running. If essential workers develop symptoms of coronavirus within 14 days of travel they must self-isolate and self-refer. Any essential worker who has been in contact with any confirmed COVID-19 individual abroad must self-isolate for 14 days. Essential workers are also advised to actively limit the frequency of travel into and out of the Island.

Medical advice has been updated and is constantly under review. This is based on the latest data.

Islanders are advised to only travel off-Island if it is truly essential, such as for medical care, to provide care for vulnerable dependents and for essential business that can’t be undertaken remotely by electronic or other means.

Anyone returning from anywhere abroad with symptoms of coronavirus should immediately self-isolate and self-refer by calling the helpline on +44 (0) 1534 445566.

The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm.

  
19/03/2020Connétables recommend you phone or email your Parish
 
Connétables say it is business as usual at Parish Halls but recommend you phone or email your Parish so they can deal with your enquiry. Contact details are on the Parish's home page.


This follows best practice advice and guidance to reduce the spread of the virus. The Parish can post any forms or leaflets you need and there are online services to renew a full driving licence, submit a rates return or to change a name and address.

 


Parish Hall Enquiries are likely to be deferred but individuals will be notified of the arrangements.

If you work, or are not at home, you should avoid using public transport during peak hours unless essential.
