The GTTA is holding a number of summer camps over the school holiday period and will be following Guernsey Sports Commission and States of Guernsey guidelines on children and adults attending summer camps after travelling abroad.
"Following the changes to border restrictions on 1st July 2021, parents are asked to please note that any young person who has travelled outside of the Bailiwick in the previous 14 days must have a Covid-19 test to confirm a negative result within the 48 hours before they return to an education setting, even if they have travelled through the "blue channel".
An education setting includes any early years provider (for example pre-schools, nursery or childminder), school or college.
Public Health guidance is that this system of testing prior to returning to education settings, which has been in place previously for those in passive follow-up, should also be extended to holiday and sports clubs run during the summer holidays. As such the same principle applies, if anyone attending a holiday or sports club-run activity has travelled out of the Bailiwick in the 14 days prior, they should have a Covid-19 test within the 48-hour window before attending. If they are attending multiple clubs within 14 days of returning to the island, then one test in the 48-hours before attending the first club will suffice."
