It met this morning to consider the feedback and concerns expressed by the community, review the current and changing circumstances, including prevalence rates in neighbouring jurisdictions, and examine other potential mitigation options.

Further options have been developed over the weekend which it wishes to consider carefully and in full that may assist residents returning to the Bailiwick.

The CCA will meet again tomorrow to make a final decision but wanted to inform the community and travellers as soon as possible.

A further announcement will be made tomorrow, once the CCA has made a final decision on whether any other mitigating measures are required.
