Ferry passenger tests positive for Coronavirus
A PASSENGER arriving on a ferry from Poole has tested positive for Coronavirus, the government has announced.
The traveller, who was on-board Saturday's Condor Rapide service, is now self-isolating in a private residence.
A statement issued by the government, said: 'A passenger arriving from Poole on Saturday has tested positive for Covid-19. The passenger was asymptomatic, and is isolating at a private residence.
'There were 174 other passengers on the ferry who followed distancing and face mask guidelines throughout the journey.
'Contact tracing has taken place and, as a result, one person has gone into self-isolation.'
It follows the news that a passenger travelling on an easyJet service from Gatwick last Friday (3 July) – the day the borders reopened to regular travel – also tested positive. An additional 15 people who were sat in rows adjacent to the infected person are now self-isolating.
There are now a total of six known active cases in Jersey – a rise of five since results were last released on Friday (3 July). All are asymptomatic.
