More Covid-19 Cases Recorded In Guernsey

Guernsey now has three known active cases of coronavirus, after a fourth person tested positive this month.

The States of Guernsey has announced another two confirmed case of coronavirus.

The government announced the latest positive test result in a social media post on Monday afternoon, adding it was a picked up in someone who had returned to the Bailiwick and had been following self-isolation rules.

It follows a similar announcement on Sunday afternoon revealing a second active case through inbound travel. 

It brings the total number of known active cases to three, as another Covid-19 case was announced last Friday.

That was also identified following a 7-day test in someone travelling to the Bailiwick from the UK.

Four infected people have been detected so far this month.  The first was announced on 7 September - also in a returning traveller and picked up through a PCR swab on day 7.  They have since recovered.  The Bailiwick had been coronavirus free for 129 days.

Dr Nicola Brink, Director of Public Health, has said the community should be reassured "we have robust systems in place to identify and manage cases of COVID-19."
