Accommodation and testing for arriving travellers

From Wednesday 3 March, residents who decide to leave the island are not guaranteed return at the current time.

Anyone returning to the island must self-isolate. You are required to have a test within 2 days of arrival, a second on day 7, and a third on day 13, allowing your self-isolation to end if you test negative. The testing pathway costs £150 to access. If you do not wish to have the tests, you can instead complete a 21 day period of mandatory self-isolation.

All those returning must self-isolate away from their household at their own cost.
