I operate a delivery company, moving goods around the Island. What should I do?

All of the Bailiwick’s couriers, shipping agents and postal workers are classified as ‘Essential Workers’ and therefore the delivery of goods around the Island should continue unaffected. It is advisable that all essential workers have up to date identification with them when at work and travelling to and from work should this be requested by the relevant authorities. If you do open your business then you must ensure that you follow the measures set out below:

  • Goods must be packed for delivery in line with social distancing and hygiene guidelines, including the wearing of gloves.
  • Deliveries must take place as part of a planned itinerary, and goods must not be sold by delivery drivers to other parties.
  • Deliveries must be undertaken by no more than one person wearing gloves.
  • A 70% alcohol hand gel should be rubbed on the gloves between deliveries.

You should put in place measures to ensure that social distancing of both your workforce and customers is maintained as practicably as possible. You must also ensure adherence to hygiene guidelines and are strongly advised to wear face coverings. You should only travel to and from your place of work to provide those services.
