Two Covid cases found in Sark

TWO people in Sark have tested positive for Covid-19.


They were identified today after developing symptoms and coming forward for testing. Both are said to be self-isolating and doing well.

Director of Public Health Dr Nicola Brink urged the community not to panic as a result of the cases, and that there was no need to avoid any local establishments.

The cases were not picked up through surge testing carried out this week after the island was visited last weekend by a group of people who went on to test positive.

Contact tracing will be carried out in Sark.

‘I am not recommending any additional measures as a result of today’s cases in Sark,’ she said. ‘We are seeing community cases across the Bailiwick as expected. The numbers remain relatively low and are not growing in the exponential way we saw in earlier waves.’
