Hardware stores. play parks and outdoor leisure venues to re-open

Thu, 08 Apr 2021

Hardware stores will be allowed to re-open under the latest easing of COVID-19 restrictions on the Isle of Man.

The Council of Ministers today agreed from this Monday hardware stores can reopen – with social distancing in place and face coverings strongly recommended.

Pet groomers will also be able to accept animals on a drop-off and collection basis from Monday.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle also confirmed outdoor leisure venue will be allowed to reopen.

Mr Quayle said: From this Monday, all outdoor leisure venues can reopen. But what must be clear here is that the rules on outdoor gatherings still apply. No more than 10 people can gather together and there must be social distancing in place, preferably with face coverings.

Whilst outdoor sports venues can reopen, there should be no sharing of sports equipment between different households, such as golf balls for example. Sports that involve players from other households coming close together or into contact with each other cannot yet restart. For example, rugby and football. As part of this loosening of restrictions, children’s play areas can all reopen from Monday."
