They only test if you’re being admitted or day procedure, they don’t test people who attend doctors or dentist either as they all take precautions and are vaccinated

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

I think a lot epends on what happens over the next few days, case wise. However, I do think construction, garden centres, etc. Will still be back on Monday. 

Construction's already back.

Yes, I see some in CoMin have picked up on the skirting board thing. I agree skirting doesn't cost that much, even if it is fixed, painted, sealed top and bottom.

It is more an indicative item, of the huge amount spent on the vaccination centres.

As in, moveable purpose built hospital screens don't need, erm, any skirting board at all.

Pointless you say?

Understanding the points. However consider the fact that it is now looking almost certain that this merry go round is going to run for at least 2 years and maybe even 3. Further consider that its looking like we'll all be queuing up again for tweaked booster vaccines from September until Christmas and then as more variants come along probably the same again next Easter. Given that likelihood the cost of Chester Street will start to appear better value. The UK are considering building drive through hubs as clearly they see the same thing happening. 

Re. The partitions. When I went I thought they gave a degree of privacy but also made it easier to hear what was being said. I didn't think it was over the top/opulent. The skirtings were only small bullnose skirtings which are the cheapest you can get:hug:

Given the rate of vaccine development I would predict that nasal spray administration will not be long in being available. Maybe even to the point of being self administered ?

Chasing elimination is going to get very irritating, as it appears that any slip with this Kent variant spawns a new case. Given the exit plan timeframe, vaccination program and a general unwillingness by many to go into a lockdown as strict as last year, we are unfortunately going to have to put up with some restrictions and hopefully released from lockdown, or else we will be resetting the clock repeatedly for a bloody long time. Can you imagine today’s case coming after two weeks with no unknown cases, it will be like slow torture. I really do hope that we get no more unknown cases and normality resumes, but the pragmatic side of me says let’s just get on with it.  If we don’t, I suspect Barlow nerves will be in shreds after several more ‘resets’ 😉.

Yes I agree. As things are, IMO, its worth continuing on this course for the time being. However, there may come a point where repeated open up/ lockdown/ open up/ lockdown becomes worse (for both our health and the economy) than living with long term minor restrictions (Pubs, bars, nightclubs closed etc.) in the medium term.

If we can get aligned with the UK there would be no reason for having a closed border. We could allow free movement for residents so long as they do not venture beyond the UK shores.

No its not. You mean small building firms working outside.

And inside, up to two with masks and socially distanced. Family electrician went to work yesterday and today.

It surprises me that they're not taking every possible opportunity to offer people a test. Maybe they're afraid of finding asymptomatic cases. 🤔

That was very brave of you to admit on a public forum...we kept our would-be taxi driver brother in the attic for several years before sending him to live with a distant relative.

If you read it again, it wasn't his brother. It was tonights brother. :rolleyes:

With some countries and companies requiring proof of vaccination, self administrated doses may not be for everyone.

I think the nasal vaccines are usually "live" vaccines - the flu one certainly is. Some people can't have live vaccines, myself included.
