Coronavirus: Guidance for Visitors

Coronavirus can cause respiratory illness of varying severity and the symptoms may be more severe in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long term conditions such as diabetes, cancer, and chronic lung disease.

Whilst the risk to individuals in the Jersey remains low, we care for people with advanced life-limiting illnesses so it is important that we take all reasonable steps to protect the wellbeing of our patients, visitors, volunteers and staff. We ask that people accessing the hospice take reasonable precautions to protect themselves and those using our services.

We request that all patients, service users, staff, volunteers, contractors, relatives, and friends consider whether they could be a potential carrier of the coronavirus and therefore pose a risk to others attending the hospice.

If you wish to attend Jersey Hospice Care and speak to someone about your specific circumstances please call us on (01534) 876555.

Arriving from mainland China

Travellers arriving in Jersey from mainland China should self-isolate for 14 days after their arrival, whether or not they have symptoms.

Travellers who have symptoms should self-isolate and seek immediate medical advice:

  • contact your GP or contact the Out Of Hours GP service on +44 1534 445445. Phone ahead, if possible, before visiting your GP or the Emergency Department.

If you are very unwell and need an ambulance phone 999 and tell them your symptoms and travel history.

Arriving from neighbouring jurisdictions

Anyone arriving from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days who is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, should stay indoors and call their GP, even if symptoms are mild.

These areas have been identified because of the volume of air travel from affected areas, understanding of other travel routes and the number of reported cases.
