The Health & Social Care Committee have asked for a survey to be undertaken in order to understand the public’s experiences of the past three months. The Integrated Community Cell has also asked for some information to be gathered regarding the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and actions taken to slow its spread on the mental health of the community. There is a desire to capture information while it is still fresh in the public’s minds.


The aim is to gather information to enable the States to better understand public experiences of lockdown:
  • How the public felt about the restrictions that were put in place: the positives and the negatives
  • Whether there were additional or different challenges faced by those:
    • Based on which Island they lived in within the Bailiwick
    • Who were shielding
    • Who are carers (of school age children, the vulnerable and those with special needs)
    • With chronic physical or mental ill-health 
    • Who are at higher risk of domestic abuse
    • Who are critical workers
    • Whose incomes reduced
    • Who were bereaved during lockdown
    • Who were pregnant or had a baby during lockdown
    • With close relatives in residential /care homes, the hospice or hospital during lockdown
  • What the States did well, in public opinion, and what could have been done better in terms of:
    • Provision of information
    • Provision of services
  • Thoughts on recovery strategy and perceived opportunities / threats
This information will be used by the States to make improvements if the Bailiwick has to go back into an earlier phase of lockdown. It will also be used to help planning for any future pandemics. Additionally, it could be used to inform the States’ decisions about recovery and service transformation.
This survey is for members of the community aged 16 years or over who were resident in the Bailiwick of Guernsey during lockdown.
