Two new Coronavirus cases identified

Two new cases of Covid-19 have been identified in the last 24 hours.

Government says one case is a close contact of someone in a recently identified cluster who was already in self-isolation and will continue to quarantine along with their household.

It's not yet known if the second case is linked to an existing cluster - contact tracing is continuing and the individual is self-isolating.

As a result of the second case, a number of locations have been identified that could pose a low risk of contracting COVID-19 for people who visited at specific times.

Thursday 25 February 2021

- Tesco, Lake Road, Douglas from 2:30pm to 3:30pm

- La Mona Lisa, Glen Road, Laxey from 6:00pm to 7:45pm

Friday 26 February 2021

- Close Leece Farm Café, Patrick Road, St John’s from 1:45pm to 2.30pm

Anyone who visited or was working at La Mona Lisa or Close Leece Farm Café during the relevant time period is asked to contact the 111 service as soon as possible to arrange a test - this is for surveillance purposes. 

They and other members of their households will not be required to self-isolate at this time.

Officials insist the risk to the general public at these locations is low, but anyone who visited any of the venues on the dates and times specified and goes on to develop symptoms is asked to self-isolate straight away and contact 111.

Anyone who was at Tesco and is not presenting with symptoms is being asked not to contact 111 at this time.

The Council of Ministers met this morning to review the situation and will meet again later today.
