Staff in the health and care sector, as well as those employed in emergency services, are no longer required to wear masks in most situations while working in Jersey.

However, there remains some sites where both visitors and workers need to wear one.

These include:

  • the Oncology Unit

  • the Renal Unit

  • the Medical Day unit

  • the Day Surgery Unit

  • Ambulatory Emergency Care (AEC)

  • Samarès Ward (Overdale)

  • Sandybrook Nursing Home (St Lawrence)

The number of days people are advised to stay at home after a positive test has been reduced to five days.

Lateral flow tests can still be ordered online for free.
