Stay home and stay safe requirement

It’s important that everyone plays their part in reducing the spread of coronavirus in the Isle of Man.

This means protecting yourself, others and our health service by making sensible choices about where you go and what you do. It’s important that where you can, you stay home as much as possible.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we will reduce the spread of the infection. That’s why it’s really important to continue to follow good social distancing habits.
