Two active cases remain in the island, neither of which are being treated in the Princess Elizabeth Hospital.

More than 4,200 tests have been carried out and as of 11am this morning [20 May], only eight were waiting for results.

Chair of the Civil Contingencies Authority and Guernsey's most senior politician Deputy Gavin St Pier praised the island for sticking to the #GuernseyTogether message.

'[The] last positive case seeded on 21 April, no new cases for 20 consecutive days, down to two (known) active cases [and] no-one in hospital.'

He said this continuing progress is very good news for the rapid delivery of the island's exit from lockdown.
