Tue, 06 Apr 2021

The Manx Government says the Island is still 'on track' to lift the majority of restrictions later this month.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle said: "The Council of Ministers will meet again on Thursday and consider the evolving data. We still hope to able to lift the majority of measures on or around 19 April."

"We do hope to be able to allow non-essential retail to open soon. If we are able to do so, this may not include our lifestyle businesses immediately. Those businesses like hairdressers, barbers and beauticians. But we hope that all being well, they will be able to follow soon after."

"I make this point at almost every briefing but I will do so again. We all want this to be the last lockdown we go through. So we need to get our exit from it absolutely right. This needs to be a safe and steady one-way journey."
