it seems a bit daft and unfair to say those who feel at risk should wear a mask when they aren’t the ones who are likely to be spreading it in the first place.

No, it's their right to wear a mask if they wish - not impose their fears and trepidations onto the rest of us to uphold a completely abnormal behavior.  COVID will be endemic, like flu and the common cold; we must accept that.  Those who don't or won't - keep the face-nappies and stay under the duvet.  This whole appeasement mentality is the result of this almost irreversible brainwashing that has gone on over the past 15 months.

If it’s only food retail and public transport it shouldn’t really be an issue for most people, lockdowns are by far the most damaging to wellbeing/health, the economy and should be avoided at all costs.

If you don’t want to wear a mask then just say your exempt, it’s not exactly difficult.

Edited to add : Why are we still expected to wear masks in hospital settings if there is no benefit or no risk?

Can we organise a boycott of the new places that stirred up a load of panic on Social media last night by reporting the 3 cases.

Just ignore it now, it’s done.

Congratulations to Gef, Energy and IOM newspapers.

3FM and Manx Radio can do one with their fear spreading.

Does anyone actually trust them to handle this? 

They say they're past the stage of "hand holding", but they also said we wouldn't have vaccine passports. 

They also said stay away from healthcare environments 10 days after arriving back (HQ). 

We already know Quayle is shitting it.

They're BS their way along as usual. It will come back to bite just as it did in January and March. Hopefully this time the vaccine will mean less serious illness. 

I expect that they are bricking it as you say. But to be fair to them I think they have realised its the only way forward and it can't wait for ever. We could get a mini outbreak as our 2+2 number is still some way down on the UK (due to out 2 week sojourn) but we are closing the gap. Hopefully we (and they) can hold there nerve for a few weeks.

Good old Howie! So he made the staff carry out an assessment of risk at Hospice so he could go publicity seeking? Really? Still broke the rules Howie…

He is completely missing the point. He was questioned about his judgement. He rang ahead, he wore a mask.........but if he really thought about it he failed to use his judgement. Now he is blaming Manx Radio and behaving like a small child.

No. 

He didn't "make" anyone do an assessment.

Hospice had already done it.   It may have escaped your attention but the event was attended by a number of people.  Not just HQ.

He 'took the trouble to ring them beforehand'.  He should have 'taken the trouble to ring them beforehand' to postpone or offer his presence by Zoom. 

He is also critical of MR seeing as they get £1m of Government funding.  Just to point out, Sir, that funding is not your money, it is public money and should not be used as a lever to manipulate news coverage.

How many of the others had travelled off Island in the past 10 days?

I'm not sure it is relevant.  It didn't alter the approach of Hospice as to the way they set up the whole event.    

It is entirely relevant.

You don’t think whether the others had been off island is relevant - in a discussion about whether HQ should have attended the event having just been off island?

Here is a clue.  If he hadn’t been away the discussion wouldn’t even be taking place.
