Although the pandemic is not over Government have introduced a number of changes as part of a phased approach to reduce restrictions over the next few months. Businesses still have a part to play in keeping workplaces, staff and Islanders protected from the risk of COVID-19.
From February 1st 2022
- masks are no longer mandatory, but Public Health advice will continue to advise that masks should be worn in indoor places where physical distancing is difficult, and ventilation is poor
- collecting customer information is no longer a legal requirement for contact tracing
- working from home is no longer advised. Organisations should make plans to return employees to the workplace as part of their risk assessments and continuity planning
There is no longer a requirement to collect contact tracing information for Government.. In light of these changes the Office of the Information Commission (JOIC) have issued a Contact Tracing Update with information on what to do with any details collected.
