Phase 5c took effect on Wednesday 28 October. This sees the introduction of testing on arrival for the vast majority of travellers coming into the Bailiwick and four category groups for countries and regions – Categories 1-4.
Everyone arriving from Category 4 regions and countries is now required to self-isolate until they have received a negative result from a Day 1 and a Day 13 test. If you decline a Day 1 and a Day 13 test, you will have to self-isolate for 21 days. This came into effect from 00:01 Wednesday 13 January 2021.
Those who choose to self-isolate with someone who has travelled to the Bailiwick will also need to adhere to the same requirement.
If you are self-isolating with other people in your household, you will need to complete an online form which can be found at www.gov.gg/isolatetogether. This is to ensure that everyone is registered and offered a day 13 test.

Self-isolation is separating yourself from physical contact with the rest of the community, including those who you live with where possible, for a specified period of time. You should remain in your home, except for getting medical care or to have a test swab taken. You cannot go to work, school or public areas or use public transport or taxis until you have been told that is safe to do so. More information on self-isolation is available online at https://covid19.gov.gg/support/protect.
If you do not self-isolate as required under the Regulations, you may be prosecuted and, if convicted, sentenced to pay a fine of up to £10,000.
