Coronavirus and the JEC: A guide to the latest restrictions

LAST UPDATE: 08:00 22/02/2021

On 22nd February the Government announced its planned roadmap out of the current COVID restrictions. Due to devolved powers, the roadmap for England , Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland varies – see the heading Regional Advice below and follow the links to find out what applies outside of England. For those outside of the UK, please consult the relevant authorities websites and guidance for your country.

Currently, the ‘cautious expectation’ for the club in England is that after 21st June 2021 at the earliest, all social restrictions may be lifted allowing regional events to go ahead unhindered. But, this is dependent on a variety of factors relating to the spread of COVID-19 and the road map for easing restrictions varies around the world and across the UK.

Our current advice is to follow the government guidance relevant to your country or UK region at all times. There are many regional variations, so ensure you have read and understood the regulations relevant to your country or region before considering the organisation of any events or gatherings.

Key points:

  • Check your car over carefully if it’s not been used for a while, paying particular attention to tyres and brakes.
  • Maintain social distancing - refer to Government guidelines.
  • If you previously declared your Jaguar as being on SORN to the DVLA, be sure to update it before taking to the road.
  • If you haven''t renewed your insurance policy during lockdown, do it right away. To help with this, check out the contacts for our panel of insurers here: https://jec.org.uk/insurance
  • MOT centres and garages are permitted to remain open during lockdowns.

Please note: As our volunteer organisers announce their move to postpone or cancel certain events, members should support them in that decision.
