81 new cases of Covid-19 identified

Active cases at 315

81 new cases of Covid-19 have been identified since the latest update.

For the fourth consecutive day, it's the highest number of cases recorded in 24 hours.

274 cases of the virus have been reported this week.

The total number of active cases stands at 315. 

Six people are being treated in hospital.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle says the high number of new cases is a result of transmission within households. He says we aren't yet at the peak and we should start to see the effects of lockdown next week.

Schools will remain closed tomorrow, and an announcement about provision from Tuesday onwards 'will follow shortly'.

If you develop symptoms of Covid-19, you're asked to self-isolate immediately and call 111.
