Royal Yacht Fined For Covid Law Breach

The Royal Yacht has been fined £350,000 for breaching Jersey's Covid-19 regulations.

It admitted opening its spa facilities last summer when it shouldn't have.

The hotel allowed guests to use its jacuzzi, steam rooms, and sauna in Spa Serene between 22 June and 8 September 2020.

That was a breach of the Covid-19 workplace restrictions put in place by the government.

Spa facilities were ordered to close by the government in March 2020 and weren't allowed to reopen at the stage when the offences were committed.

One of the hotel's directors appeared in the Royal Court to plead guilty to the charge.

It's the first time that a Covid-19 breach was dealt with by the Royal Court.

The Marina Metro Hotel at Havre des Pas, who appeared before the Licencing Assembly, was fined £20,000 for repeatedly breaching Covid-19 guidance last year.
