Please be advised that the States of Guernsey’s Public Health Services has issued the following advice (updated 10th March) for islanders who are in home self-isolation on handling their waste.
“All waste that has been in contact with the individual, including used tissues, and masks if used, should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full. The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.
“Do not dispose of it or put it out for collection until you know that patient does not have novel coronavirus. Should the individual test positive, you will be instructed what to do with the waste.”
