Lockdown update from 20 June

This page was last updated on 15 October 2020 at 09:45hrs

Phase 5 should be considered a return to normal activity in the Bailiwick – the Bailiwick Bubble.

So what does this mean for me? In summary:

  • Border entry measures to minimise risk of importing COVID-19 cases remain in place.
  • Schools and workplaces open, and must operate safely.
  • No restrictions on personal movement but people are encouraged to maintain a record of where they have been.
  • No restrictions on gatherings but organisers encouraged to maintain records to enable contact tracing.
  • Stay home if you’re sick, report flu-like symptoms.
  • Wash and dry your hands, cough into your elbow, don’t touch your face.
  • No restrictions on workplaces or services but they are encouraged to maintain records to enable contact tracing.
  • Social distancing replaced with ‘respect a person’s personal space’.
  • Good cleaning standards should remain in place, particularly with regards to frequently touched surfaces, toilets and other shared areas.

Social distancing and controlled and uncontrolled environments will no longer be required. However, we recommend that individuals still keep a diary of their activities to assist with contact tracing if this was ever needed.

Whilst strict measures for distancing are no longer required, the community is asked to ‘respect my personal space’ and maintain a distance where possible. This is in addition to good respiratory etiquette (catch it, bin it, kill it) and frequent hand washing for a minimum of 20 seconds.

These good hygiene measures are not only excellent in protecting the community from COVID-19, they will help prevent the spread of other infectious diseases such as Influenza, Norovirus etc.
