Business Continuity Planning Checklist

The Government of Jersey and the Jersey Resilience Forum recommend that all organisations adopt robust and flexible business continuity management arrangements. These should help ensure that the impact of disruptions caused by coronavirus (COVID-19) will be minimised.

To assist you in developing and reviewing plans, the Jersey Resilience Forum, Emergency Planning Department has produced a checklist specifically regarding COVID-19, developed using UK Cabinet Office guidance. It identifies important and specific activities which organisations can undertake to prepare for a pandemic, as well as where more general guidance will be provided by the authorities. Directed mainly at medium and large businesses, some elements will be of use to smaller businesses.
