Guernsey first part of British Isles to remove most lockdown restrictions

Published on May 24, 2020 by

The Channel Island of Guernsey is set to become the first part of the British Isles to remove nearly all lockdown restrictions.

Guernsey hasn’t had any new case of Covid-19 for over three weeks. Schools there will be reopening, with distancing measures, from early June. The island’s tourism industry has been losing millions of pounds since the pandemic began.

Meanwhile across the UK, lockdown has presented challenges for many people’s mental health. A new survey suggests that young people are particularly affected, with many saying they are experiencing increased anxiety.
