Safe Exit Framework Advice for Businesses
On Monday 11 May, the Government of Jersey moved to Level 3 of the Safe Exit Framework. For most Islanders that means the amount of time they are allowed out of their homes has been extended, as have the options on what they can do.
Businesses in the hospitality sector that sell food either at kiosks or for takeaway or where al fresco seating is possible in accordance with the guidelines on hygiene and physical distancing, can open.
And, open air recreational sites can welcome visitors, excluding their indoor enclosed areas (except for purposes of entry and exit).
Please note the following –
- The establishment of an alfresco dining area related, and adjacent, to an existing business selling hot or cold meals and drink for consumption on or off the premises, will be permitted.
- Alcoholic beverages may be sold with meals, but an alcoholic drinks-only service is not permitted.
- These guidelines are in addition to the general advice that applies to all businesses to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Detailed guidance for food and drink businesses including physical distancing measures; seating and table arrangements; awnings and weather screens; food vans, trailers and carts; building alterations; preparing to open; and takeaway and food deliveries, can be found here.
