Changes to precautionary measures in health and care settings

There is currently no community transmission of COVID-19 in the Isle of Man, therefore face coverings are not required/recommended for the general population except when mandated under a Direction Notice, travelling to/from the Island and within the ports.


For anyone returning to the Island two tests will be required, on the first, and sixth day of isolation. If you do not wish to be tested, you must complete a 21 day period of mandatory self-isolation instead.

Symptoms and Self Assessment

If you develop any symptoms, please now complete the Isle of Man COVID-19 Screening Assessment. Completion of this assessment will decide whether a further telephone assessment needs to be undertaken by calling the Isle of Man COVID-111 telephone service or if no further action is required.

Testing & results

Until you receive your test result DO NOT stop self-isolating because you are feeling better.
