Yes here as we have literally hardly any controls other than voluntary self isolation. I agree. 

Same as Jersey but without letting the tourists in.

Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

Ratio of admissions to deaths is not that different, testing is obviously out due to the massive capacity increase like just about everywhere in the world.    The current UK situation is impact

It's a safe place right now because of the Manx people, not the Manx politicians. None of us want to be "the person who brought it back" so we isolate and make sure we don't transmit the virus by bein

No they have not. Jersey, for some countries, including the uk currently allow the test on arrival. Guernsey have proposed a similar test on arrival from the same countries followed by (assuming a negative result) seven days semi isolation and a second test. 

Isolation on both islands is mandatory, just like here, but Jersey has over 20 active cases, including four more yesterday. Most are from testing on arrival a couple are from track and trace and one from seeking medical advice. In other words the community. It is only a matter of time until it spreads. 

Stop posting lies again, Jersey have 11 active cases and none is hospital and isolation is not mandatory in Jersey unless you come from an amber or red country similar to UK. Guernsey now is 7 days isolation and one test , not 2 as you made up,under next phase will move to 1/2 days isolation  if test on arrival negative. jersey figures below from official source not your made up one

When was that?

Late 70s through to mid eighties? If it's the one I think is being referred to, the premises are now the town Masonic Hall.

ETA Just seen later posts :flowers:

I remember going upstairs to pick something up in the early 70's I think, but memory plays tricks at times.

The Guernsey 7 Day test option if you are eligible does have a few restrictions it is not do as you like once you are pronounced negative:

1. A Relevant Person must provide such information to officers from Public Health, the Guernsey Border Agency and Guernsey Police, and to any other persons authorised in this behalf by the Guernsey Border Agency, as those officers and persons may require in 4 connection with the operation and enforcement of the 7 day self-isolation option, and must comply with any other direction from those officers in that connection.

2. A Relevant Person must undergo a test for COVID-19 on the seventh day after arrival (or at such other time as the Medical Officer of Health may direct), or else self-isolate for the 14 day period. That test – referred to in this section as a 7 Day Test - will be undertaken at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital3 (or any other site approved for this purpose by the Medical Officer of Health) by a nasopharyngeal swab (or such other test procedure approved for this purpose by the Medical Officer of Health).

3. The requirement to self-isolate for the remainder of the 14 days does not apply to a Relevant Person who has tested negative for COVID-19 on a 7 Day Test if, and only if, the Relevant Person complies with each of the following restrictions during that period -

3.1 the Relevant Person must at all times be vigilant for symptoms, however mild, of COVID-19; must report any such symptoms immediately to Public Health; and must comply with any instructions given by Public Health thereafter (which may, for the avoidance of doubt, include an immediate resumption of self-isolation);

3.2 the Relevant Person must not enter a nursing, care or residential home without the prior agreement of the manager of the home, received after having informed the manager of the home of his or her status as being subject to these restrictions, and in any event must not return to work in such a home;

3.3 the Relevant Person must not, other than in an emergency, enter the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, and in an emergency must give prior notification of his or her status as being subject to these restrictions before entering the Princess Elizabeth Hospital if reasonably practicable in all the circumstances;

3.4 the Relevant Person must inform any other healthcare provider of his or her status as being subject to these restrictions when making any appointment for care;

3.5 the Relevant Person must, so far as reasonably practicable, keep a record of people met and places visited (to assist with contact tracing if necessary);

3.6 the Relevant Person must not travel to Alderney; and

3.7 the Relevant Person must comply with any additional conditions and restrictions imposed from time to time by the Medical Officer of Health

Yes but hardly that restrictive, the main point is you can leave house and go walking etc on day 8.

when they move to phase5c it will be 1/2 days isolation if you travel from select countries including UK

No problems with those restrictions. I'd be happy to keep out the pub and resturants for the 2nd week as well.

I can't remember when it transitioned into the Masonic hall but I installed some new equipment there in the mid 80's.

I wish our media would give them similar airtime. I have stopped watching the news now as it is so unbalanced.

Social  (so called ) media is the idiots platform. 20 arsehole post a load of shite and suddenly they are the majority and we should take note.

I used to deliver containers full of denim rolls there in the 80's. Many tidy women worked there too. Just saying.

That was when Ramsey had tidy women, I went out with one :D  It was often a first job for school leavers in the town too. It was definitely still operating in 1984/5 so maybe closed late 80s?

Nor can I remember exactly when the Freemasons took it over but I've been to hired hall functions in there in 2005, so maybe late 90s/early noughties.

So, ITV stating 3 new cases today, 4 new cases yesterday, 2 the day before, and so on are telling lies? Go onto Worldometers and click on Channel Islands scroll down. All the daily figures and data source is there. Notice the graph is on a steady rise. 

With regard to the Guernsey Press link posted, you obviously did not read it all. 

Dont call me a liar when you cannot be arsed to do your research properly
