I can’t easily go and do work trips.  I can’t bring friends here. We have wok that needs doing on a few jobs that require people from off island. 

People are losing their livelihoods.  If we don’t open at end of June and loads of places have to refund the bookings they have taken expect to see several go under.

Anyone who thinks it’s only the tourists and tourist industry who are being adversely impacted doesn’t live in the real world 

Spot on.

A case in point is the Coop store and Costa in Crosby are awaiting end of border restrictions so the shop fitters can get over and fit out. I can assume that’s also the same reason why the KFC and Starbucks site hasn’t been touched.

If you have genuine need to bring people over to do jobs, you can get them over. 

You say you cannot easily do business trips, but it is not that difficult and is doable. 

You cannot bring friends here, but nothing stopping you going and seeing them. 

A month ago you were calling for the exact situation we have now. When we do finally remove restrictions from the borders, you will still find something to moan about!

Not really. Those sorts of jobs are now allowed, provided you follow the guidelines.

Nope.

All I have ever wanted is free travel to and from the UK and would have no issue living with local restrictions like masks in order to allow it.

Its the selfish who can’t see the impacts on others who want everything closed down

Where are you getting that from?  111 and the general COVID advice line have repeatedly told us they aren’t and it’s only immediate family and property owners allowed over.  Still no sponsored business travel according to the people who are supposed to advise.

@Cambonyou are wrong, again.

Plenty of people needed here to complete various projects currently not allowed

 

  • Entry permitted only for key workers required for preservation of life, public safety and CNI
  • Controlled return of residents
  • Those entering required to complete Landing Form for contact tracing

My main concerns would be any plans to extend the vaccination programme to young adults and children. These groups have been shown to be at reduced risk.

Until phase 3 testing on the Pfizer vaccination has been completed by 2023 then last week's approval for 'emergency use' by the Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Authority should not be considered.

Didn't we learn anything from the Thalidomide and contaminated blood products scandals ?

I know several parents who are determined their children will not be vaccinated.

Added later - Just read Lagmans posts on the who will have the vaccine thread. Good read.

Just get your facts right though. Thalidomide was a drug and not a vaccine. Totally different. Very poor comparison.

I am shocked! I just looked at the gov.im website and I admit this is a rare occasion that I am wrong! It is only key workers. However, when the announcement was made on the radio, they did say that people with work contracts could now come over, proved they test and isolate.

That is people relocating to a new job.

There is zero logic behind having made the key worker restrictions tighter when they opened other stuff up.

As is the IOM COVID way.  No place for common sense or logic.

It is causing a lot of businesses a lot of issues - not surprisingly

I’ve resigned myself to the thought it’s never ending.

One massive climate change last roll of the dice.

I’m glad I did my travel when I got the chance. A shame my parents won’t get to enjoy their retirement as was planned & will likely die here unable to fulfil dreams.
