Finance sector = key workers

To be fair though they get no compensation so either sort their child care out or give them £280 a week if they can’t work due to childcare issues.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

The many vunerable and over 70's who havent received a letter never mind a vacination. Apparently thats the GP's fault according to Ashie 

Yes, missed that, but it was because the GP's system wasn't working properly so nothing to do with DHSC. :angry:

The announcement says that kids of key workers can be looked after by other family members. That's still mixing though, but perhaps not as bad as if they were at school.

Yes I’m sure potentially giving covid to 70 year old grandparents is better than the risks to a 30 year old teacher.

How is that, when my own child’s school have to know the employment details of parents if they fit the key worker criteria and want the child to go to school. And IF it is correct, why aren’t the school/teachers just saying no? I call bullshit. 

I was given ‘essential key worker’ status in my job during the 1st lockdown, I even required a letter in case I was pulled over during the ‘Stay Safe - Stay at Home’ lockdown phase. My job wasn’t essential in the slightest, it was in manufacturing, but for as long as we socially distanced where possible it was deemed acceptable, I should say that social distancing wasn’t always possible but was still deemed safe for as long as we wore a mask.

So key worker status is given to anyone who can’t work from home and isn’t on the government list to stop working, this time round it also includes those who would have previously been told to stop working, the Tradies alone will put hundreds of kids in school that would otherwise be at home.

There certainly is a distinct lack of planning and logical thinking in what their announcing .  Feel quite sad about it all tonight tbh . I'm on my own , got my pension today so not to many worries really but feel so much for many friends as they are really hit badly and this all is not going to help.

I don't get either. Life's not fair.

It isn’t. Everyone should either get £280 a week if employed or £200 if self employed if they are put in a position that they can’t work. End of story.

Well they are now, just means the problem will spread a bit wider now, the kids will be left with other family instead, nieces, uncles, grandparents, cousins etc if the government don’t have financial support in place for these people then they have to carrying on working as best as they can.

How does the isolation work with that though . Kids getting farmed out willynilly is not sustainable I wouldnt have thought .

With the amount of cases about...handing the kids to Granny isn't a good plan IMO.

Let's hope we don't have too many critical staff shortages as a result of thesee close downs.

I would be very surprised if the govt will be paying them overtime. It'll be flexitime where they can accrue a maximum of 3 days worth. After that all the time they work is essentially unpaid. But if they are being paid overtime then needs must.

I think it fell under Agriculture/Manufacturing last time which doesn’t even appear on that list?
