Return To News releases & statements


I want to join the Chief Minister in expressing deep sorrow at the first death from COVID-19 on the Isle of Man.  It is a tragic loss for a family, for a community and for the Island as a whole. 
At times like this many of us want to do something, to do anything, to help, by going anywhere, by offering to join any of the professionals already out there. 
Most of us can help, by staying in, by going nowhere unless we need to, thus showing our support for the essential services.  
We can remind ourselves that, eventually, ‘This too shall pass’.
