The Bailiwick of Guernsey will move into phase 5c, the next phase of its Exit from Lockdown Framework, on Wednesday 28th October.
HSC has experienced a large volume of calls following the announcement by some care homes earlier today in respect of their visiting restrictions. They have reassured that they are not implementing the same restrictions at this time.
Following the announcement yesterday regarding the identification of a new case of COVID-19, the Public Health Contact Tracing Team is working hard to identify contacts of this case (index case).
Late yesterday the Director of Public Health identified a case of COVID-19 in the Bailiwick. At the time of writing, the origin of this case is still to be determined.
The Public Health team have been working with the individual concerned and contact tracers are working hard to establish the exact source.
The Civil Contingencies Authority has been reviewing its plans for moving through further phases of its Exit from Lockdown Framework, in light of rising numbers of cases of COVID-19 in all of the Bailiwick’s neighbouring jurisdictions and around the world.
Tomorrow is Global Handwashing Day. An annual event to highlight the importance of handwashing at home, in the community and around the world.
This year, to mark this day and to launch the States of Guernsey’s #GuernseyTogether Winter 2020 campaign, a pop up handwashing station will be at Waitrose Admiral Park tomorrow between 11 am and 2 pm.
