Stop the dept of health track and trace sending people to and from the island for testing

This petition is to stop people from being able to use the Isle of wight ferries in order to have COVID 19 Tests. People are being sent from the island for testing on the mainland, and vise versa. People are being sent to the island.

People have already been sent to the island and tested positive and were not allowed to stay in their vehicles. Due to the ferry companies needing 48 hrs notice in order for this to be implemented. This has the potential for the virus to be spread to other passengers and should be stoped. People should have a right to stay in their own vehicle if they are at risk of spreading the virus. Or are in a high-risk group if they contracted the virus. It is not always possible for people to give 48 hrs notice.  The government's advice is." Before boarding a ship all passengers and crew should be asked if they have symptoms of coronavirus and should be refused travel". This is not happening and needs to be implemented.

The department of Health and the Isle of wight council have stated. The new NHS App does not recognize the Isle of wight as an island. This, therefore, needs correcting urgently before more people are infected.
