COVID-19 update (17.03.20)

The Constable of St Helier and his team are working closely with the Government of Jersey on plans to support members of the community most at risk from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whilst the situation is developing rapidly, the Parish will be using Facebook and other medium to keep staff and parishioners briefed and updated. Please read the latest government advice at www.gov.je/coronavirus.

The Constable, Chief Executive Officer and Management Team are leading the Parish’s team of dedicated staff in our response to COVID-19. At this time, our priorities are:

  • Protecting the vulnerable in the Parish and those in our care;
  • Minimising the risk to our colleagues, both employed and voluntary;
  • Maintaining essential services; and
  • Supporting government and our community in their response to COVID-19.

Whilst there is a great deal of information in the national and local news, press, television, radio and on-line, we encourage staff and parishioners to keep up to date with the latest government information advice on www.gov.je/coronavirus.

The Government has also set up a helpline; if you think you may have the virus call the helpline on 445566. The line is open every day from 8am to 8pm. If you call outside these times, or if the line is busy, leave a message and someone will call you back.

The Town Hall remains open as usual and we encourage parishioners to access our services on-line and contact us by phone (811811) or email townhall@posh.gov.je wherever possible. Social functions and meetings at the Town hall have been suspended for the time being.

Many parishioners have contacted us with offers of help and support for the vulnerable and those observing social distancing. This level of care for our neighbours and those living in our community is part of what makes Jersey, and especially St Helier, such a special place to live. If you wish to volunteer in any way, or need some additional help or support at this time, please telephone us on 811811.

“The Parish is the centre of our local community and working with government and others, we will prioritise supporting those in need during these difficult times.” Simon Crowcroft, Constable of St Helier
