Schools won't return on Monday

Nurseries & childminders to remain shut too

Students won't be going back to school tomorrow (8 March) as Covid-19 cases continue to rise.

Hub schools, nurseries, and childminders will also remain shut.

The Council of Ministers made the decision to help stop the spread of the virus, particularly amongst the Island's young people.
 
There will be a follow up announcement this afternoon detailing a new provision for workers whose roles are critical to the protection of life and national infrastructure.

For essential workers only, other family members may provide childcare and children of separated households are able to travel between parents' homes for the provision of childcare.

However, government asks that children from different households do not mix wherever possible.
