No change to Island's border restrictions despite stricter UK rules

Rising case numbers across mean some areas are now in tier four

The Isle of Man won't be changing its border restrictions, despite stricter coronavirus measures coming into force in the UK.

London and parts of south east England have been put into tier four due to rising numbers of coronavirus cases, Wales is heading back into lockdown, and plans to ease restrictions for five days over Christmas have been cut to just Christmas Day.

There are also increasing concerns over a new strain of Covid-19 thought to be more transmissible.

The Manx government says local residents travelling back to the Island are required to complete 14 days self-isolation upon return, while non-residents continue to need a government-issued exemption.
