States-run schools to open to all students from 8th June

The Committee for Education, Sport & Culture has decided that States-run schools will re-open to all students five days a week from Monday 8th June.

This aligns the position on schools to the decision announced today to move to Phase 4 from Saturday 30th May as part of the States’ overall Exit Strategy.

1:15pm - 22 May

Decision made in principle to move to Phase 4 on 30 May 2020

Today marks 22 days since the last diagnosis of a new case of COVID-19. We moved into Phase 3 on the 16 May 2020 and have had no new cases of unexplained community transmission since 21 April 2020. The Bailiwick currently has 2 known active cases. 

As stated last week, the current public health data has exceeded our expectations and there is clear evidence that the community is working together to ease out of lockdown. In view of this, and the fact that all other criteria to move into the next phase have been met, HSC has agreed, in principle, to move to Phase 4 on 30 May 2020.
