Deputy Peter Ferbrache, Chair of the Civil Contingencies Authority said
“The measures we have already at our borders have been extremely robust, and have kept our community safe. The move to essential-only travel does not replace those, all of the existing requirements remain. Travellers must still strictly abide by our self-isolation requirements.
But if you have a visit to Guernsey planned that is not essential, if you’re planning to spend a bit of time here visiting friends or family or you’re thinking of using Guernsey as a base to work from temporarily when your work isn’t critical to the running of the Islands, then my message is this: cancel your plans, do not travel here.
We know the impact of even one case that enters our community undetected can have a serious impact on the freedoms we currently enjoy. We are not like other jurisdictions who are managing COVID within their communities, we want topreserve the very good position we’re in. We’ve seen how the Isle of Man has had to react, hard and fast, to the identification of just a handful of cases. Personally I commend the swift and decisive action taken by our Manx friends and believe we would do the same, but we want to do everything we reasonably can to avoid that situation.”
