More COVID tests available today

The Manx health department is promising a more regular and consistent supply of lateral flow testing kits.

It comes after huge demand caused dwindling supplies on the island, despite hundreds of thousands being ordered.

A further 25,000 LFDs will be available in pharmacies and town halls over the next two days.

Additionally, a weekly supply of around 130,000 tests will be distributed for the foreseeable future, subject to continuing demand.

We're being advised to ask for a maximum of seven single test kits to make sure everyone who needs one can get one.

You can pick up the free kits at pharmacies as normal or at Douglas Borough Council and Commissioner Offices in Peel, Castletown, Port Erin, Ramsey and Onchan.
