'Time to hear from the public about government's Covid decisions' says review leader

Drop in sessions being held later this month

The woman leading an independent review into the Covid-19 pandemic says she wants to hear about the effect of government decisions on Manx residents.

The public engagement phase of the investigation will start later this month with five meetings held over two days.

Views are sought on border controls, school closures, business support, care homes, policing and Coronavirus testing.

They will take place as follows:

  • Wednesday, 29 March 2023: 10.30am to 12pm – Town Hall, Port St Mary
  • Wednesday, 29 March 2023: 3.30pm to 5.30pm – Centenary Centre, Peel
  • Thursday, 30 March 2023: 10.30am to 12.30pm – Town Hall, Ramsey
  • Thursday, 30 March 2023: 3.30pm to 5.30pm – Town Hall, Douglas

The review also wants to hear from people who have left government since the pandemic.

Anyone who has been bereaved is also invited to speak privately with the review team if they wish to do so.

Ms Brunner told Manx Radio the views of the public are of ‘vital importance’ to reviewing government’s response to the pandemic:
