Jersey politicians will today (20 January) vote on whether to allow visitors back to the General Hospital.

Most visits are banned after a number of patients caught Covid-19.

One deputy called the decision "barbaric" after the rules came into force on Thursday 13 January.

Deputy Montford Tadier said lateral flow tests would be a better way to safeguard the hospital.
