A full page advert is printed on page 3 of today’s JEP, while posters have been put up at the Hospital, schools, parish halls and government sites.
Chief Minister John Le Fondré said: ‘Ensuring that Islanders are fully aware of the public health messages, which will help prevent the spread of coronavirus, is vital. There have been no cases of coronavirus in Jersey or the Channel Islands so far, and so currently, the best advice for Islanders is to wash their hands, cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough and put used tissues in the bin straight away.’
A dedicated webpage – gov.je/coronavirus – has been set up and has received 42,896 page views since its launch.
Health Minister Richard Renouf added: ‘We want to make sure that Islanders are well-informed so I would like to thank all media owners who have given their support to ensure we can get these important messages out.’
