“They faced a very difficult situation during the pandemic, especially in the beginning, so it is understandable that they are taking all necessary measures to protect and secure their population?
MLA Hansen confirmed that the change for northbound travelers will not have any impact on southbound travelers.

MLA Hansen assured the public that “the Chief of Islands Medical Services continues to work closely with UK health authorities and agencies to keep us well informed of developments.”
“This information is regularly reviewed and evaluated by the Strategic Planning Management Group, prior to submission to the Executive Board for any changes introduced as necessary.” (PN)
