Pubs & bars can fully re-open from today

Pubs, bars and nightclubs on Island are being allowed to fully re-open again from today.

The decision to allow these venues to come back was confirmed by Chief Minister, Howard Quayle MHK, earlier this week and comes after four weeks of no new Coronavirus cases on the Isle of Man.
