On Saturday 23 January 2021, it was announced that 4 positive cases have been identified. It is not immediately clear how these individuals contracted the virus, as none are directly from travel or the contacts of known cases. Contact tracing is continuing to determine whether there is a link between the cases and whether these cases are linked or if this is a result of wider community seeding.

As of 12:00 noon on Saturday 23 January 2021, the Bailiwick of Guernsey is asked to stay at home, except for:

Carrying out essential shopping for food or supplies; Seeking medical care; or for up to two hours exercise outdoors. You should only undertake these activities with members of your household. The only exception to this is where someone lives on their own. In those cases, the person living alone can take their two hours of exercise with one other person from another household following social distancing guidelines.

The Community Vaccination Centre will open on Monday 25 January, at Beau Sejour, as planned so please attend your appointment if you have one booked.

You must work from home if you are able to do so. Those who cannot work from home should only go to work if they are an essential workers. More information of who is deemed an essential worker will be published later today.
