Revised exit plan due for next Tynwald, 3a on target for end of April with testing/isolating requirements being discussed at Comin next week is what Howard said today 

You would hope that those already vaxed will not be required to isolate.

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

you would,  but as the vax doesn't stop you getting it or spreading it  ( just an opinion, not a fact ) what difference does it make whether vaxed or not in an isolation context  ?

The NHS is protected & vulnerable will have been (are already) vaccinated.

Testing prior to entry or before further reduces the risk.

We are at the stage where we move on.

Increasing evidence that once vaccinated it greatly reduces your ability to spread virus if you catch it which is why airlines, cruise companies, countries are willing to accept vaccinated travelers without restrictions

"...at this moment in time" for me

No, no, no, Barlow, the phrase is "a snapshot in time".  No wonder you never win.

Taking a look at the Jersey reopening framework.

It seems that they are planning on allowing all inbound travel to resume no earlier than May 17 (excluding U.K. banned country list).

It’s unclear on the isolation / testing requirements from that date but it’s nice to see them put a date on it.

Are we that far behind our Channel Island counterparts?

Yes. We still have 75 active cases. Jersey has 4. Jersey has a real need for tourism we do not. Other than that, we are ahead of Jersey on a per capita basis vaccine wise. Give it a couple months we will be in a much better position to open  than Jersey is now.

FFS will you give the negativity a rest & stop supporting lockdowns & borders closures, even Howie is starting to realize we need to open up.

it’s Karen’s like you holding us back!’

HA, HA,HA, You really make me laugh. Nom De Plume asked why we are not doing the same as Jersey? Are we behind? The answer is yes! Quite simple! Jersey has been in lockdown all this year. At least we had February off for good behaviour. Jersey has administered 68K jabs to our 60K. On a per capita basis, it puts us slightly ahead. However, they are slightly ahead on second jabs. Now our weakness. Banker, remember you are not yet vaccinated. You are only part so. If we had stuck to the manufacturers recommendation, in a couple of weeks you would be done. Now you have to wait until June. Most of the rest of the world is sticking to recommendations.

What monumental fuck to had happened....before Easter the kids teachers said they would be in school on 12th April if nothing changed.....nothing changed if anything things got better but schools are not going back until 19th?? So please someone anyone explain in what or how this changed and what took us off the path?  Is it the unions again or people too scared to make any blinking decisions...or was it schools didn’t shout enough like construction so the government didn’t crumble

The teachers get paid the builders don't.

So both of the Channel Islands can allow travel from 26th April with isolation based on cases so many will only require negative arrival test, UK cases are plummeting and you want everyone here to stay locked down and allow no travel without 3 tests & 14 days isolation with no family allowed.

Also Jersey have not been in lockdown all year and neither have Guernsey so stop peddling lies.

FFS negative & scared people like you are going to drag this Island backwards, work in cabinet office do you??

The whole "there's no evidence of blood clots with the 2nd dose" I would have thought that the vast majority of AZ jabs were first doses at the moment? So whilst it's likely to be a true statement, would suggest it's slightly misleading....

He didn't seem to understand that point did he?

3A is a waste of time. It's just a red herring to make us feel there has been progress. It's not even a baby step. You loved ones can travel over and isolate in one of howies holiday cottages for 3 weeks then come and see you. It's not even close to reality. Up the revolution.
