Antrim and Newtonabbey, Belfast, Causeway Coast, and Glens, Derry City and Strabane and Lisburn and Castlereagh in Northern Ireland are amber, with Mid and East Antrim a red designated county.

Aberdeen City, Angus, Dundee City, and Perth and Kinross are designated as amber in Scotland, with Cardiff the same in Wales.

All travellers will have to state whether they have or will stay in any country or region other than their point of departure within 14 days prior to their arrival in Jersey.

"We ask all travellers arriving to the Island to declare their travel history as required by the Safer Travel Policy. We have expanded our risk-based approach to include regions where reliable and verified data is available.

"Regions within countries where there is a higher level of risk are under stricter testing and isolation requirements, however where there are significantly lower levels of risk, less stringent requirements will be in place.

"We test almost everyone arriving on-Island through our border testing programme, which allows travel in and out of the Island, meaning that families are able to reunite, people can travel for work and we can welcome visitors, while ensuring that the risk of onward transmission remains low." - Dr. Ivan Muscat, Deputy Medical Officer of Health.
