Island to stay in lockdown for at least an extra week

Chief minister announces extension to restrictions

The Isle of Man is to stay in lockdown for at least one week longer than initially expected.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle announced the extension at the latest government media conference.

It means restrictions will remain in place until at least Wednesday, 31 March, with the situation being 'continually reviewed'.

It's as the Director of Public Health Dr Henrietta Ewart admitted they're still seeing more new cases than they would've expected at this point in the lockdown.
