Non-essential shops and close contact businesses in Jersey to re-open

Non-essential shops in Jersey will be able to reopen on Wednesday 27 January, and close contact businesses, like hair and beauty salons, will follow on 3 February.

All but food, DIY and a few other exceptions have been closed since Christmas Eve.

Scientific and medical experts met on Monday (20 January) and made the latest decisions based on the current data, before presenting it to ministers.

The move is, however, subject to continued review of the number of cases in the island.
