From 17th February, all travelers arriving on Guernsey’s islands will be free of border restrictions.
All travelers will not be asked to test for Covid-19 or isolate on arrival, regardless of their vaccination status.
For those traveling to the islands, the requirement to complete a Travel Tracker will also be eliminated.
There is no legal requirement to self-isolate if you have Covid-19, but if you are ill, it is recommended that you act properly and stay at home.
According to the BBC, Guernsey will be the first British island to lift all Covid prohibitions.
“It is no longer proportionate or necessary” to continue with the guidelines, according to Guernsey’s Civil Contingencies Authority (CCA). This is partly owing to the high vaccine uptake among the community, which has resulted in very few hospitalizations as result of the virus.
It added in its statement: “Furthermore, there is now strong evidence, following the recent Omicron wave, that critical services across the Bailiwick can be maintained, despite having to work through challenges.”
Chair of the CCA, Deputy Peter Ferbrache, said: “Now is the right time to move the Bailiwick out of an emergency and begin managing Covid-19 without the use of regulations.
“We must develop a culture where it is considered unacceptable for someone to be out and about willingly and knowingly spreading their germs if they are unwell.”
