Well done team IOM for a successful lockdown 2.0. The spirit and determination of the Island has shone through yet again and it is for these reasons that we are all able to enjoy renewing our relationship with ‘the new normal’. Long may it continue.
I am pleased to announce that our offices are now operating back as normal from 1 February 2021. Face to face meetings are taking place in the office again, although we are still encouraging and facilitating good hygiene practices, such as regular hand washing and sanitising.
If you or a member of your household feels unwell or has any symptoms of COVID-19, we would kindly ask that you do not arrange to visit the office until symptoms have cleared and (if necessary) a negative COVID test result has been obtained. Alternative meeting options, such as via phone or video-conferencing, are still available.
