Today (Monday, March 29) marks the start of new coronavirus restrictions, under the Prime Minister's roadmap out of lockdown.


Some outdoor gatherings can take now place.

They can be in open spaces, or in private gardens.

Gatherings must adhere to either the rule of six, or be made up of two full households.


Outdoor sports facilities, such as tennis and basketball courts, and open-air swimming pools, will also be allowed to reopen.

Islanders will be able to take part in formally organised outdoor sports.


The ‘stay at home’ rule has now ended, but many restrictions will remain in place.

If you can work from home, you should continue to do so after that date.

The government says you should minimise the number of journeys you make and avoid travelling at the busiest times and routes.

Overnight stays are still not allowed.

Travel abroad will continue to be prohibited, other than for a small number of permitted reasons.

Holidays abroad are still not allowed.

What's next?

More changes will be made on April 12 (at the earliest).

From then, some accommodation and non-essential businesses will reopen.
