Lord-Brennan says society has reached tolerance limit

Society has reached the limit of being able to ‘tolerate’ specific government intervention when it comes to Covid-19 restrictions.

That’s the view of the cabinet office minister who says the Council of Ministers is monitoring the Island’s Coronavirus case numbers.

In line with the endemic policy it’s pursuing a policy of increased public messaging and will keep lateral flow tests free until further notice.

Kate Lord-Brennan was challenged on Mannin Line by a caller who wanted to discuss the impact of the TT – and impact of future events – on case numbers.

But she told him ‘knee-jerk’ reactions are not required:

The Isle of Man’s Covid R-number now stands at 0.7 – you can find out more HERE
