Four children test positive for Covid-19

Picked up at two Island schools

Four children, from two schools on the Isle of Man, have tested positive for Covid-19.

The education minister revealed contact tracing, and further testing, is ongoing.

Dr Alex Allinson says this is focussed on high risk contacts and 'friendship groups'.

He says government wants to protect the safety of all pupils and staff without severely disrupting the education service.

Extra supplies of lateral flow tests have been made available at secondary schools.
