From next Monday (17 August), people arriving from some countries, including the UK, will have the option to self-isolate for seven days and then have a test.

Following this announcement, Condor confirmed it would operate two fast passenger services.

The sailings, on 23 and 30 August, follow similar trials run in July and will see Condor Liberation operate directly between Guernsey and Poole.

The company’s strict social distancing procedures, which are currently in use on its routes from Jersey to the UK and France, will be deployed.

‘We have agreed to put on these sailings in advance of the resumption of a more regular schedule to Poole and St Malo in due course,’ said a Condor spokesman.

‘This is in line with the States’ move to the next phase of travel restrictions and we are happy to support efforts for assessing safe, sustainable options before borders can be opened.’

The company’s safety protocols include a limit on the number of travellers in the public lounges, floor distancing markers and barriers.

Food and beverage outlets will operate as self-service, with card payments only.

All passengers are required to wear face coverings for the sailings.

Check-in times are being extended and the ship will be only half full at the most.
