Covid outbreak in the Isle of Man Prison

Wing put on 'Black' regime

There's been an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Isle of Man Prison.  

Visiting has been suspended as a result after a 'small number' of prisoners on one wing contracted the virus.  

The wing has now been placed in the 'Black' regime.  

It means offenders are limited in the amount of time they can spend outside their cells.  

The rest of the prison is now operating on a 'Red' regime which means each wing will operate as normal in a 'bubble'.

All prisoners, staff and close contacts are now being offered tests.
