Two new cases of Covid-19 have been detected on the Island over the past 24 hours.
 
Both positive tests came from individuals who were already isolating following travel to the Island.

Their isolation period continues and further tests will be offered.
 
Chief Minister Howard Quayle MHK commented:
 
‘These instances are absolutely expected. The individuals have done everything right, followed guidance and kept our community safe.
 
‘Cases such as this do not signify a community spread of the virus and therefore do not affect our proposed end to lockdown on 1 February.’
 
The current number of active cases of Covid-19 on the Island is 29.
