I witnessed just that attitude from from close neighbours on Sunday morning following the Saturday PM announcement, to the effect that the Govt have cried "wolf" too often. Let's hope they take on board 17 new cases in one day.

So every crew member should isolate for two weeks after every return voyage?  You don't see a slight flaw in this plan?

They should basically be living under isolation at this point and until the crisis is over.

Or else lay them off on full pay and use UK based crews.

If people do that we're going to be stuck in lockdown for a lot longer than 21 days!

It's 100% going to be longer than 21 days already. I'd wager 6 weeks at least.

Yeah, job's fucked. You can't run a default position of everyone out in pubs, hugging, no distancing, no masks etc and then also drag your feet when the situation changes. All you do is create a load of super spreaders.

Depending on cases we maybe able to do a staged release like Guernsey eg open hospitality but for sit down meals  only , no wet pubs , face masks etc

We seem to be in a far worse spot than we were the last time around.

Last time, it was handfuls of community transmission, and widespread risk of community seeding. This time, we've got 111 so rammed the phones have broken and 17 cases in a day. Our peak was 32 cases in one day in April.
