A further case of COVID-19 has been detected in the Isle of Man.  The individual, who recently travelled to the Island, is in self-isolation which will last for a further 14 days.

The contact tracing team is working to identify and speak with anyone who may have come into close contact with the affected person.

Chief Minister, Howard Quayle MHK, said:

“We have seen a small number of cases of COVID-19 detected in recent weeks.  We cannot afford to become complacent and we must all remain vigilant if we are to succeed in keeping the virus from once again spreading in our community.”

The new diagnosis brings the total number of active cases of COVID-19 in the Isle of Man to three.
