'No penalties' for keeping kids at home

Pupils who stay home this week will be recorded as an "unauthorised absence" but no other action will be taken or penalties handed out, said the Manx government.

That's the latest from the Isle of Man government as Covid-19 cases on island continue to rise - surpassing the 1,000 mark yesterday.
