Apparently front porch still open & a friend told me his neighbor is cracking on with his 50ty with about 30/40 attending at house.

incidentally what happens with hotels as I know Comis have a number of staycation guests and will be expecting dinner, can hardly kick them out!!

The Palace have kicked people out apparently.

I agree that genomics would prove a link, or not, but I don’t think it would inform the decision to lock down. 

All it might do, in the circumstances that it’s 2 or 3 transmissions along from the index SPCo case is allow the daft suggestion that its part of the cluster and thus NOT community transmission. That then allows no lockdown and no action or other measures to be justified.

They're non explained cases. They should be treated as community transmissions until proved otherwise. That doesn’t mean automatic lock down. Certainly not for 3 weeks.

It's that it might tie to specific cases in the cluster and you then re-examine the itineraries of those involved to see where the actual contact might have been, trace other contacts and so on. Things are more under control.   Alternatively it might show no link to any of them and you panic.

I think they're panicking enough already.

You don’t suggest bars etc shut and then offer no support as it’s taxpayers money!!!

It will be interesting to see if all these hospitality company’s apparent sense of social responsibility changes when they realize that they’ll get sod all from government for their efforts in closing? Although I imagine the brewery feels it’s on firm ground to bully them into paying up for following ‘voluntary’ advice to close.

This is the New Zealand approach

The realisation that the government would not be giving any assistance played no part in our business decision. All you can hope for is that suppliers understand the situation. From our perspective, they have but that will only last to a point. Everybody wants paying

That’s a strange reply really. As what I seemed to hear was a millionaire paid £80k a year by the taxpayer tell many people on £8.50 an hour that they won’t get paid this weekend if the companies they work for decide to voluntarily not need their services following an government announcement to stay at home that has no validity in law.
