'Some medics aren't on board with our strategy'

Medical Director among those who don't agree with approach

Some medics including the Island's medical director don't agree with the current Covid-19 approach from the Council of Ministers.

Health and Social Care Minister, David Ashford says it's about balancing expert views over decisions.

As of last night, close contacts of Covid-19 cases no longer have to isolate and are being encouraged to take part in a home testing scheme.

Mr Ashford says Director of Public Health, Dr Henrietta Ewart, hasn't opposed the approach.
