Island enters 'Stay Responsible' phase

The Island has now entered into the new 'Stay Responsible' phase as part of the local response to COVID-19.

Chief Minister, Howard Quayle MHK, announced the move at yesterday's press briefing following 33 days without any new cases of Coronavirus on the Isle of Man.

As a result, government has issued a document explaining what the new phase involves and outlines eight key steps residents can take to keep Manx people protected.

These include continuing to wash hands frequently, self-isolating immediately if asked to do so by healthcare professionals, working with your GP if you have concerns over your own wellbeing or any underlying conditions, and only sneeze or cough into a tissue or your elbow.

Meanwhile, the document says the closure of the borders remains 'the first line of defence' for preventing a rise in cases and that 'we are likely to need some form of border restrictions and controls for some time to come'.

Officials say the overall situation around borders will continue to be reviewed at least every two weeks.
