Thursday’s rule change welcomed by Tynwald petitioner

A Tynwald petitioner who campaigned against government’s travel requirements for unvaccinated residents says the border policy will ‘go down in Manx political history’. 

Victoria Hodgson claimed isolation and testing exemptions for those who’d received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine created a ‘two tier’ society.

A rule change came into force on Thursday, allowing unrestricted travel for residents, regardless of their vaccination status.

Manx Radio approached government for comment on this story.
