The Island Hall front office has been opened to the public – but for half days only at present.
Access to other departments is by appointment only – even for States Members – and the stairs have been cordoned off.
The General office is open each weekday morning except Wednesday, when it is open in the afternoon.
No-one at the States was available to say why the hours were still being quite so limited.
The General Office new opening hours are:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 8.45am – 1pm
Wednesday 1pm – 4pm
A maximum of three visitors can be admitted to the General Office at any one time.
Visitors are asked to use the mailbox where possible and only attend for over-the-counter service when absolutely essential.
As well as the General Office, the Visitor Centre and Impôt are controlled access, where only the maximum number visitors are permitted entry at any one time.
The other offices in the Island Hall and the Harbour Office will be by appointment only. Each department will keep a record of those attending to also enable contact tracing and manage shared office space.
An Island Hall spokesperson thanked the public for their patience:
‘By working together with the care and attention of our community we have reached this phase and we are delighted to be able to re-open, whilst remaining vigilant with strict hygiene and access control measures. We thank you for your support and patience and working with us through this ongoing challenging period.’
