The Government of Jersey has updated its Covid-19 risk assessments for four countries.

Jersey uses a traffic light system to categorise jurisdictions as either green, amber or red and applies different requirements for self-isolation and testing depending on their risk.

The changes announced today mean that, from 30 July, the Bahamas and Belgium will move from green to amber, Argentina will move from amber to red and Saudi Arabia will move from red to amber.

The Countries Risk Assessment classification forms part of the Safer Travel Policy, which saw the island’s borders open for non-essential travel on Friday 3 July.
