A man has been arrested after failing to stick to self-isolation laws on the Isle of Man. All arrivals on the island are required to self-isolate for 14 days.

The island’s Central Neighbourhood Policing Team confirmed that he’s in a specially cleaned area designated for those who are required to be self-isolating.

Since Tuesday night, everyone arriving on the Isle of Man has been required to self-isolate for a two-week period, even if they’re not showing symptoms of Covid-19.

Officers there, like here, and all over the world amid this unprecedented pandemic are urging the public to follow the government’s guidance and think about the safety of the community.

Anyone arriving in the Isle of Man who refuses to self-isolate to contain the spread of coronavirus could be prosecuted, said the government.

Emergency legal powers requiring new arrivals to quarantine themselves for 14 days regardless of symptoms come into effect at 23:59 GMT on Tuesday.

Health Minister David Ashford said the steps “will ultimately save lives”.
