  1. This government are always too cautious and slow to respond. They're terrified of making a wrong decision so make no decision. Nothing will change unfortunately!!
  2. I'm in the 'open up club' and had my first jab, so i'm not worried one little bit. I'd drop borders tomorrow if it were my choice, but i'm trying to suggest a system that is acceptable to all, and will actually work.
  3. If there's no deterrent, the system will be abused. What do Guernsey do when people refuse to isolate?
  4. Absolutely. Think it's an easy to work system and make it known there's a four week spell in Jurby for those that don't comply
  5. Problem is they can still carry it. Think testing has to stay for a while, but the system needs to encourage people over, not discourage.
  6. Run it as residents only for a month and see how it works, then let friends and family members in.
  7. According to the BBC Southampton is 50 per 100,000 and Liverpool is only 20 per 100,000 so you argument doesn't work.
  8. That is a brilliant system, and perfect for entry to the IOM. Use a driving licence or utility bill to confirm 'home address' and crack on. My family in Hampshire have a rate of 10 per 100,000 and haven't heard of anyone that's caught Covid for over a month including all the kids at school.
  9. If the borders don't open in June they never will. Shutting the borders was all about protecting the health service, and the whole 60 million population are getting around 60 deaths with covid per day. That equates to just over 2 per month on the IOM. No excuse to not relax the borders
  10. Sorry, you are misunderstanding me. I'm saying the health service have coped easily with the number of covid patients in both waves, and have the capacity to work with a few covid patients alongside the regular patients. I thought the only reason to lockdown was to protect the health service, and this is easily possible with the current vaccination level. Just want to say, the health service and especially all the nurses do a brilliant job.
  11. Unfortunatley, yes on two occasions in the uk.
  12. It spread here very quickly because the IOM was not practicing any form of social distancing, which would have to be introduced for a few months if the borders were relaxed a little. Think table service in the pubs etc. I'd suggest that cases slipped through the quarantine period because the rules were crap, like others in the household still going to work, and the fact that some people broke the rules and didn't quarantine. This is more likely to be the case when it's so tough. Let people out to exercise on day 7 and they are more likely to stay in the rest of the time. The health s
  13. I've understand the current uk testing system will always pick up a certain amount of false positives, and for the amount of testing they are doing it's around the 5,000 figure, which isn't much below what has been reported. Just open slowly and keep an eye on things, but please start to relax the borders a little.
  14. Please explain why? The uk rates are as low as the testing proceedure allows, most of the 50+ year olds have had a vaccine, covid hospital admissions are virtually zero in the uk and the death rate is below the average. Please tell me why some-one can't travel back to IOM, test day 1 and 7, then be allowed to shop for essentials and excercise outside for the 2nd week?? Don't dare say because the IOM are trying to be covid free, because it's too late for that. Covid is here and it ain't going away - accept it, and work around it.
