Government has identified two more locations which could pose a low risk of Covid-19 for people who visited at specific times.
It follows yesterday’s announcement of an individual testing positive for COVID-19 after completing their 14 day period of self-isolation.
As their isolation was complete, they were free to go about their business and visited the following locations on the dates and times specified:
- Thursday 24 December 2020
9:00 pm to 10:00 pm – the casino at the Best Western Palace Hotel & Casino, Central Promenade, Douglas
- Monday 28 December 2020
8:15 pm to 9:45 pm – the casino at the Best Western Palace Hotel & Casino, Central Promenade, Douglas
- Tuesday 29 December 2020
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm – Robinsons, Cooil Road, Braddan
Government insists the risk to the general public remains low, but is asking anyone who was visiting or was working in those places during those times and goes on to develop Covid-19 symptoms to self-isolate immediately and contact the Covid 111 line.
Dr Henrietta Ewart, Director of Public Health, says: “I remain confident that the risk to the public is small, but as a community we must be vigilant. If you visited the locations specific and feel as though you may have COVID symptoms, please self-isolate and call the COVID-111 service.
“The response is proportionate to the level of risk to the public, but the situation is being kept under review by Public Health.”
