Cases expected to 'fluctuate' for foreseeable future, gov't says
Government is now strongly advising residents should wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed spaces.
It comes after a recent review on face coverings from the Council of Ministers.
Officials say whilst numbers of Covid-19 cases have reduced from the recent peak, levels are expected to 'fluctuate' for the foreseeable future.
Government claims an increased use and consideration of face coverings could play a role in containing further spread.
Chief Minister, Howard Quayle, says whilst it's 'encouraging' to see recent case numbers drop, it is 'still too early to tell' what long-term trends look like.
Face coverings are not being made a legal requirement and will still be a matter of personal choice.
The situation will be reviewed at the end of the month.
