133 signed up for government self-isolation scheme

Chief Minister Howard Quayle says 133 people have signed up for a government scheme to help people self-isolate in tourism accommodation.

During a press briefing today, he said 129 properties had registered for the scheme, which sees taxpayers foot bills of up to £250 a week.

In total, 898 beds have been made available on the day self-isolation rules changed to include whole households sharing with people who return to the Island.

Mr Quayle said those self-isolating can exercise for one hour a day while wearing a facemask and maintaining social distance from others.
