Coronavirus: Additional Cleaning On Buses

LibertyBus says its vehicles are being cleaned with anti-bacterial solution every night to try and help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Buses are also being cleaned with anti-bacterial spray during the day as much as possible - particularly touchpoints such as the ticket machine, call buttons, handles and poles.

A person was diagnosed with the virus in Jersey yesterday (10 March) and close contacts to that person are being asked to self-isolate.

Advice remains to wash hands with hot water and soap for 20 seconds.

91 people have been tested altogether, with 90 negative.

 Coronavirus Advice

If you think you might have the virus, you should self-isolate and call the Health Department's coronavirus helpline:

01534 445566

It's open every day between 8am and 8pm. Calls outside these times, or when the line is engaged, won't be answered straight away - but we're told to leave a message and Health officials will call you back.

Please don't visit your GP or the Emergency Department at the General Hospital if you think you have the virus.

Coronavirus symptoms are similar to that of the flu - a combination of a cough, fever and aching muscles. If you've had any symptoms, even if you haven't travelled abroad, we're being told to self-isolate until they clear up (for a minimum of seven days).

Anyone who has come into contact with a person confirmed to have the coronavirus should stay in self-isolation for at least 14 days.

All the latest information can be found on Gov.je.
