If you think you might have the virus, you should self-isolate and call the Health Department’s coronavirus helpline:

01534 445566

It’s open every day between 8am and 8pm. Calls outside these times, or when the line is engaged, won’t be answered straight away – but we’re told to leave a message and Health officials will call you back.

Please don’t visit your GP or the Emergency Department at the General Hospital if you think you have the virus.

Self-isolation

Coronavirus symptoms are similar to that of the flu – a combination of a cough, fever and aching muscles. If you’ve had any symptoms, even if you haven’t travelled abroad, we’re being told to self-isolate until they clear up (for a minimum of seven days).

Anyone who’s come into contact with a person confirmed to have the coronavirus should stay in self-isolation for at least 14 days.

Social distancing

As of Saturday 14 March, islanders over the age of 65 are being advised to limit any unnecessary contact with people outside their households. This doesn’t mean you need to stay at home all the time – just as much as possible, including working from home.

When you’re out and about, keep at least 1 metre away from anyone not in your household and avoid public transport at peak times as much as possible.

Read the Health Department’s advice for over 65s here.

Travelling

The Government of Jersey is now advising against all non-essential travel on or off the island. This doesn’t include medical or compassionate visits or travel by key workers required to keep essential services running.

People returning from anywhere in Europe and Asia are being asked to self-isolate for two weeks, even if you don’t have any coronavirus symptoms.
