CoMin Decides Against Covid Restrictions

Following a meeting of the Council of Ministers this morning, the gov has decided not to bring in any restrictions at this stage.

This follows the emergence of six new cases of Covid-19 on the island in the last 48 hours.

Chief Minister HQ said: ‘The situation remains similar to yesterday, with a small number of cases, all linked to a single chain of transmission, making up a single cluster.

‘We determined that, in line with the Government’s Covid-19 outbreak management plan, the number of cases, and the absence of unexpected cases not linked to this cluster, does not warrant any restrictions to island-life at this stage. 

‘We will continue to monitor the situation closely and I will hold a briefing at 6pm this evening to provide the public with an update.’

There has still been no confirmation from the gov as to the procedures for Steam Packet crews who come off shift. Yesterday the gov said the company’s Manx based crew is required to isolate when they come off shift. However the company denies this.
