Repatriates can quarantine at home from Wednesday

Chief minister announces changes to repatriation process

People being repatriated to the Island will be able to quarantine at home from Wednesday (13 May).

It was announced by the Chief Minister Howard Quayle at this afternoon's media conference.

The number of people returning to the Isle of Man is to remain at around 30 per week.

However people are to be allowed to self-isolate for two-weeks, rather than be quarantined at the Comis Hotel, as long as they meet the right criteria.

Mr Quayle says the new measures are not part of an 'erosion' of border lockdown measures.
