France moves to 'Group A' with 14 day self-isolation requirement
ISLANDERS returning from France will now have to self-isolate for 14 days.
Since Guernsey re-introduced the categorisation of countries based on their Covid-19 infection rates, officials have said changes could be made at any time, and at short notice.
Today, France moved from the Group B watchlist to Group A, meaning anyone returning from anywhere in France must enter a compulsory 14-day isolation period.
Djibouti moved from Group A to Group B, meaning travellers returning to Guernsey from there have two options: to self-isolate for 14 days or self-isolate for seven with a Covid test on the seventh day. If the result of the test is negative, they must enter a seven day period of 'passive surveillance', meaning contact with others should still be reduced.
Azerbaijan has been taken off the Group B watchlist, but Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark and Switzerand have moved onto it, joining French Polynesia, Guyana and Iceland.
Countries on the Group B Watchlist are likely to move to Group A at extremely short notice, and anyone planning travel should look at this list and consider carefully any travel to countries included on it.
Group C consists only of countries with an agreed air bridge to Guernsey, currently only the Isle of Man.
