Appeal for people to come forward for testing if they were in identified Alderney establishments at specific times

In support of Public Health efforts for relevant additional testing in Alderney, an appeal has been made for anyone who was at the following establishments during the times identified to come forward for testing:

  • The Divers Pub on 11th July from 8pm onwards (they were showing the Euros 2020 Final)
  • Cantina No 6 on 11th July between 4pm-8pm
  • The Blonde Hedgehog on 9th July between 8am-4pm
  • Concert at St Anne's Church on 10th July starting at 7pm
  • The Seafarers Service on 11th July starting at 10.30am
  • Alderney Sailing Club on 15th July from 6.30pm onwards

This forms part of our testing response and is known as source testing.

Anyone who attended these locations at the relevant times is asked to contact the Alderney Welcome Centre duty phone on 01481 520266 between 8am and 5.30pm, 7 days a week, so that a test can be booked.

Dr Nicola Brink, Director of Public Health, said:
'We carried out significant surge testing among different groups in Alderney yesterday but having reviewed information coming from our contact tracing processes, there are instances where we know people attended these locations between these times identified, but we've been unable to confirm their identity. So we are now embarking on additional testing in the form of source testing. As such it's really important for people to get in touch for testing if they were at any of these establishments during the times outlined.'
