Coronavirus Covid-19 Update

These are extremely challenging and unprecedented times for all. The Committee for Economic Development is acutely aware of the significant impact that the decisions made today to protect the health of our community could have on the visitor economy.

Please be assured that discussions are already taking place at a high level within government as to how business, especially those within the visitor economy, may be supported to help limit the impact of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

The VisitGuernsey team is also working on contingency marketing plans to support the Industry and to help kickstart the visitor economy when the ongoing public health concerns are resolved.

VisitGuernsey members will be engaging with Chamber Tourism industry policy leads and with members of the tourism trade over the coming days and weeks to gain views and discuss possible plans and actions considered a priority over the coming months.

If you do have specific concerns or questions you would like to raise or discuss please contact the Trade and Media team
