Gibraltar Fire and Rescue Service’s Deputy Chief Fire Officer, Mr Matthew Payas and the Airport Fire and Rescue Service’s Deputy Senior Fire Office, Mr Adrian Hernandez recently attended a Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Strategic Command Course at National CBRN Centre which is part of the UK’s Counter Terrorism Policing.
The COVID-19 Strategic Coordinating Group, on the advice of the Director of Public Health, has recommended that the legal requirement to self-isolate when testing positive for COVID-19 be removed.
Therefore, with effect from Friday 17th March 2023, those who test positive for COVID-19 will be under no legal requirement to self-isolate. However, the advice of the Director of Public Health remains to stay at home for 5 days until tests return negative, up to a maximum of 10 days. Limit interactions with others, especially with those who are immunosuppressed and vulnerable members of our community.
Unite the Union says it is “extremely pleased” with the response from their members within the Government of Gibraltar who have taken part in the ballot process during the course of this week, in relation to the Cost of Living Campaign.
