January

The Manx Government said that the "risk to the public is low"[2] and that the island is "ready to respond to the Wuhan novel coronavirus (WN-CoV) should a potential case of the disease arrive here."

March

In March, the Manx Government again said that the risk to the public is "moderate to low".[3] Despite the Government downplaying the risk, hand sanitisers were sold out in retail stores.

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic was confirmed to have spread to the Isle of Man when its first case on the island was confirmed on 19 March 2020. The patient had returned from a trip to Spain on Sunday morning via a flight through Liverpool.[4]

Response

Measures introduced in the Isle of Man to protect against the virus include mandatory 14 day self-isolation for anyone traveling to the island and increased testing for the virus.[5] The government announced that Manx borders would close to non-residents at 9am on 23 March 2020.[6] The Manx government confirmed via Twitter that all schools on the island would be closed by the end of 23 March 2020.[7]

On 27 March 2020 the government closed its borders & ports except for key workers and banned public gatherings of more than 2 people unless from the same household.[8]
