Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, the Isle of Man government approved an act entitled “Health Protection (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020”
The board of Care in Mann met on the 16th March 2020 and the matter and it’s impact on the charity was discussed at length.
After receiving several guidance notes from the government, it was subsequently agreed that the risks to our volunteer drivers was too great.
Sadly, we have had to temporally suspend our activities until the restrictions have been lifted by the government. We are unable to comply with the Manx Government’s edict to practise “social distancing” when sat beside somebody in a car.
We will continue to keep you informed of events.
Update 8th June 2020
On Government advice, we are pleased to say that from Monday 8th June, we will be re-starting a limited service.
Clients requiring assistance to get to hospital or doctor appointments may contact us on the usual number 628500 and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Board Meeting 13th July 2020
It was decided that we could now open requests for transport for PAM appointments (professions allied to medicine), i.e. physiotherapy, podiatry etc. and include taking clients for visits to nursing homes.
Update 6th January 2021
Following the announcement yesterday that the Island is to go into a 21 day curcuit breaker from midnight tonight, it is with regret that Care in Mann has to suspend its’ operation with immediate effect. Updates will follow as and when the government issues further information.
2nd March 2021
Following the government’s announcement today, we sadly have to suspend operations until this current circuit breaker is lifted. I’m afraid this applies to all trips, including those for vaccinations.
As soon as we can, we will resume and a further announcement will be posted.
16th April 2021
Following yesterday’s announcement from the government, I am pleased to confirm that Care in Mann will resume operations from Monday 19th April 2021.
