Testing and restrictions

If you receive a positive lateral flow result, isolate immediately and report your result.

Face coverings are mandatory on public transport including on busses, ferries and on aircraft and when entering health and social care settings. It is expected that they will be worn in crowded or indoor spaces with limited ventilation such as public buildings. Some businesses may require you to wear a mask as a condition of entry.

Please do not enter any public buildings before doing your lateral flow test.

Please help us to help you. When you arrive in the Isle of Man, please have your photographic identification and QR code ready as you disembark, as these will be checked at your port of entry. Please follow the instructions set out on signage and provided by staff.
