Jersey to move into level two of lockdown

Jersey will move into level two of lockdown from Friday 12 June.

At today's press conference, the Economic Development Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham, announced the plans which mean more businesses will be able to reopen, as long as they can maintain social distancing and other health and safety measures.

This includes the following sectors:

  • Hair and beauty

  • Fitness

  • Healthcare

  • Indoor cafes and restaurants

  • Libraries

  • Cinemas

  • Theatres

  • Concert venues

  • Community centres

  • Youth centres

  • Places of worship

  • Museums and galleries

  • Arcades

  • Bowling alleys

Senator Farnham added that it is also hoped that that hotels, hostels, B&Bs, boarding houses, lodging houses, self-catering vacation accommodation, caravan parks and campsites can open soon, primarily for the local market.

In the face of this ongoing pandemic we must remain alert and the progress to phase two will depend upon the continued containment of the virus which is why it is essential that we all continue to follow the guidance and act responsibly.
