Arrivals from green regions have to isolate until receiving a negative test result. They also need to get a second test on Day 5.

People coming to Jersey from amber areas have to take a test on arrival, go into isolation, get tested again on Day 5 and can then exit isolation if the second test comes back negative.

Red regions require 14 days isolation.
