The 14-day self-isolation rule remains in place for anyone arriving from Guernsey and pleasure boats are not permitted to visit the island until these provisions are modified.
St Anne’s School will open and parents have been advised directly by the Head Teacher who is working with his staff and the education authorities to ensure a safe environment for teachers and pupils.
This early move to the next lockdown release stage has been possible because of the low risk of the introduction of Covid-19 to the community and is a very positive development for the Island.
The Island can expect to move to Stage Three a week later, on Tuesday March 9 th , subject to confirmation by the CCA.
Alderney States Member Bill Abel, who represents the States of Alderney on the CCA, said: “We are fortunate to be in a position where we currently have no active cases of Covid-19, and we have not seen a new case since that single case was cleared. It’s entirely appropriate for Alderney to move forward through its exit from lockdown.”
He added that our understanding of the virus is developing over time and therefore the guidance may be amended in the light of risks to the community.
“There are many Alderney and Guernsey people working hard to get things done, sometimes late into the night, and I am sure that everyone will join me in thanking them” he said.
Further details and clarifications will be published on the Alderney.gov.gg website as they become available
