Three people have been jailed this week for not being quarantined after returning to the Isle of Man from the UK.
Under the island’s strict Covid-19 rules, returning travelers must self-isolate at home for 14 days.
The Isle of Man has not recorded any new cases of the coronavirus since May 20, leading the government to drop most of its lockdown restrictions in mid-June, ahead of the UK.
But to stop any new business and defend what she calls her “manx bubble”, local authorities are tough on anyone who does not comply with quarantine measures.
Paul Dowd, 64, was sentenced to six weeks in prison on Monday after going to the pub twice when he should have been in quarantine.
And on Tuesday, a woman from Northern Ireland was jailed for a month after breaking quarantine rules. Fraser Nolan had been given special permission to visit to deal with her late mother’s estate, but was arrested by police after traveling by bus to a locksmith.
