Islanders are being told to cancel any planned events and gatherings after four new coronavirus cases were discovered in Guernsey last night.
Health officials say 'it is not immediately clear' how the four people contracted the virus, as none of them have recently travelled off-island or been in contact with anyone who has.
Contact tracing is being carried out to determine if the new cases are a result of community transmission.
The Director of Public Health, Dr Nicola Brink, says anyone planning events or to attend any kind of gathering should cancel their plans.
