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.
