Ministers in Jersey will meet to decide whether to follow the UK’s lead and tighten border controls for those coming from France.The UK has changed its restrictions so that all travelers from France are quarantined even if they are double bitten, due to the increase in covid cases there.Currently, under Jersey rules, travelers should not self-isolate if they are fully vaccinated and should only self-isolate until their first negative test result if they are not.
Jersey ministers meet to consider evidence of a change in status for France on the evening of Monday, July 19.
An announcement is expected to be made this week on the decision.
Jersey got rid of its red, amber and green classifications for countries that determined how long travelers should self-isolate upon arrival.
Instead of, Jersey uses vaccination status alone.
The test is free and if you do not participate in the testing program you must self-isolate for 14 days.
Passengers who have visited a country on England’s International Restricted List must be tested on arrival (day 0), day 5 and day 10. They must self-isolate until a negative result on day 10 , regardless of their vaccination status.
France is not on the UK’s red list.
