From 1 February 2022, it is no longer necessary for organisations to collect and keep information for contact-tracing purposes: the Government of Jersey no longer requires organisations whose activities have the potential for people to be within 2 metres of each other for longer than 15 minutes, to ask for contact information from patrons, for the purposes of supporting its contact-tracing efforts or to keep such information for 21 days.
Instead, Islanders who test positive will be advised to notify the individuals they have been in contact with and advise them to start 10 days of LFT tests. It will also remain possible to notify close contacts via the Jersey COVID Alert proximity app.
In light of this change, organisations should:
Organisations that have concerns or questions about how to collect and store personal data under the Law, or individuals who have questions about what is happening to their personal information and how to exercise their individual rights under the Law, should contact the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) team via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the JOIC office on 01534 716530.
