IOM Covid removing restrictions


Recommended Posts

I can see why they would delay full opening up of pubs/cafes/etc till Monday - but I would hope they would allow people (even if limited numbers) to visit inside this weekend.

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

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

If by air then I'm sure airport security will have visibility to journeys, even foreign ones.

They don't. But of course they ask to see tickets and other info.

Be carefully what you say and better prepare it in advance.

As a transit traveller you don't have to do the Covid tests or register an UK address. The post on top of pag. 2016 points out to the relevant legislation.

The problem is that some immigration officers will be ignorant about it.

To clarify, I was referring to IOM Airport Security/HMRC.

Our dear leader has already said that facemasks and SD may be something we have to get used to. So perhaps a lockdown release lite?

 

Guernsey has fully abolished the requirement to wear mask in enclosed spaces.

For the time being, as concerns Covid, IOM does not make any distinction about the origin of travel. This may change if they start copying Jersey. But that frankly would require moving away from the whole "zero Covid" mindset: I will believe when I see it.

What HMRC has to do with it?

Only red zone has to quarantine in UK. Once borders open next month they will be able to check on passports if you have been abroad but assume this will only be checked if any doubt over information on your arrival form.

From what Howard said Monday we’re going to a testing scheme based on region you travel from ie copying Channel Islands 

Bound to be a total fcuking mess anything that IOMG gets involved with. The Channel Islands do things properly whilst we merely play around.

On PSM FB page a guy has a second home in PSM and is touting for  support that as he cannot visit due to IOM Gov he should not have to pay rates...... Hope he has a tin hat! In fact a response has suggested that holiday home owners should pay more.

We will have a situation where only the wealthy and IOMG employees could afford to travel off the rock. Like I said this situation can’t continue much longer, unless we keep burying our heads on Douglas Beach.

I think in my quote I said returning residents should not have to pay anything

At the end of LD2 it was restrictions lifted Sunday night, back to work/school Monday. This was a mistake in my view, and they should have given folk the weekend to get out and about and see each other. It might be a little different this time with the relaxed meet outdoors 10 people thing but still.

 

It's pubs restaurants etc that matter.  Most people are ignoring the "cant see each other " bit anyway.  No reason to keep these closed and stop lifestyle businesses from working.

I own a property in the UK, I haven’t been there since March 2020. I just paid my council tax for the year and water charges.

That’s the first sensible thing you said in a while, keep it up!
