    An announcement is expected to be made at 4pm today (Friday) to confirm the decision on reopening, but there is a catch: plans may be halted if any unexplained cases or clusters arise in the meantime.

    If nothing changes over the weekend, the social restrictions imposed on January 7 will be lifted:

    *Residents will no longer be required to stay at home.

    *Pubs, bars, restaurants and non-essential retail outlets can reopen.

    *Social distancing and the wearing of face masks will not be mandatory, though they might still be required in some businesses, workplaces and healthcare settings.

    *Gatherings will be permitted and members of different households can mix indoors.

    *Those identified as clinically vulnerable or extremely clinically vulnerable will no longer be advised to shield.

    *All of the island’s school sites will reopen on Monday and pupils are expected to return immediately.

    2 week quarantine with 3 negative tests or 3 week quarantine with no tests.

    Hopefully covid won't interrupt the TT, which is substantially more dangerous than the virus.

    Tens of thousands flock to the IOM every year for this. I can't imagine they would want that. In addition all participants, crew etc would probably need to quarantine. I would have thought the chances of this going ahead this year are pretty slim.

    Read the thread title and presumed the UK had just got the whole Island vaccinated and have let it open up

    How come they didn't think of that?

    Would have been a great expirement

    Only 80,000 on that Island, they could do in a day or 2
