Free PCR Swabs For Departing Uni Students Before 21 February

Students travelling to the UK from Jersey with Condor will be able to get a pre-departure PCR swab for free before Sunday 21 February.

That date has been chosen because it's the last day of reading week.

It's only available for students who haven't returned to university this year.

It's not for students who have been to the UK and back since 1 January 2021.

Passengers on Condor have to prove they're negative for coronavirus before being allowed on board.

University students who travelled back to Jersey for Christmas and were unable to isolate at home could apply to go into self-isolation apartments above LibertyBus station.

The UK Government is due to announce that people coming to Britain from certain countries will have to isolate in airport hotels, instead of travelling home.

Jersey will not be affected because the island is in the Common Travel Area.
