Patients frequently transferred can request 7th day test

People who travel off-Island frequently for medical appointments can be tested for Covid on their 7th day of isolation.

That's the latest update from the Chief Minister in today's media briefing.

Currently those who go to the UK for appointments have to quarantine for 14 days upon their return.

However, now Mr.Quayle says those who have two or more off-Island appointments every 4 weeks will be able to apply the test, so they have an option to end self-isolation early.

This will also be extended to certain key workers, who come and go from the Island regularly.
