Of those 94, 57 have symptoms.

Three care home residents have the virus and three people with Covid are being treated in hospital.

The government is due to announce later today that non-essential shops will be allowed to reopen later this week.

That was due to happen last week, but it was delayed by at least seven days because a Covid cluster was identified in the retail supply chain.

There were fears that it may lead to a spike in case numbers, but they have continued to decline in recent days.

'Non-essential shops' in Jersey are due to be allowed to open again on Wednesday 3 February.

The Chief Minister and Health Minister are scheduled to hold a media briefing at 7pm, which you will be able to listen to live on Channel 103.

LIVE: Today at 7pm. The Chief Minister and Health Minister will provide an update on plans to reconnect Islanders through a phased reopening of shops and other services.
