Reayrt-Ny-Baie in Douglas has been temporarily closed for visiting and new admissions due to positive cases of COVID-19 within the residential home. The measure has been taken at the property on Albert Terrace as a precaution to contain the spread of the virus within the home and to protect the elderly and vulnerable residents living there.
Residents and their relatives are aware of the situation, with the closure being reviewed on a daily basis.
Jonathan Carey, Manx Care's Head of Adult Social Care Operations, commented:
'Closing Reayrt-ny-Baie has not been an easy decision, but it is the right decision in order to protect the residents living there. We do understand how difficult this is for residents and their families; however, we are helping them to maintain all forms of communication and ensure they remain as connected as possible at the moment.'
