The Cat With No Tail in Onchan is now closed after being contacted by 111. So that’s the business funding people to be off work this week. All because someone who tested positive has been in there. 

Why are they closing?

'We have decided'. 111 won't ever tell a business to shut, just advise them on steps such as deep cleaning etc. The Cat is currently a very high risk venue.

A lot of businesses I think are rightfully worried about ending up in that position. If your staff have to isolate, how do you stay open?

Not sure how you managed to snatch that as I posted the picture up.

Which points out how ridiculous the situation is. Why stay in business if you could be shut down every other day just by having customers on your premises who may test positive? 

It is TOTALLY ridiculous. We are either living with it or we aren't. Living with it isn't track and trace being anal.

Yep. Loads of lads in there tested positive,  they also went to 1886 after...there will be nowhere open soon.

Unless all your staff are 2 plus 2 then you can't survive.  By my reckoning most of the under 50s aren't 2 plus 2 yet.

The Island could be indirectly and unofficially locked down by the weekend if this mentality carries on. As mentioned above 1886 must be in the firing line and they are quite good at being sensible and not risking staff and customers. I live a quiet life and not worried tbh and had both jabs but if it starts to affect businesses again by over zealous track and trace then we are in trouble and it could be a final nail in many businesses. But never mind as they can find 3 million for an amenity site and just wait till the government balance sheet comes out later this week . They can just up taxes or the likes but businesses are royally Fucked .

Yup. How Rishi Sunak must wish he had lord alfies job, nobody even asks him, it's quite bizarre, theres nobody being shielded as much as the chief minister elect right now.

Or the current chief minister? He's still getting paid right?

The 1000 people watching the football at the Nunnery yesterday is going to be an interesting one to watch. But hey it's all about "personal choices".

My second immunisation appeared on my immunisation record on the NHS app about a week after it had reached the Patient Access system. Still waiting for it to show up on the covid 19 part.

I am currently in Heathrow en route to IOM from an Amber listed country (Lebanon). Check in this morning at Beirut airport demanded a UK Passenger Locator Form QR code (done), recent PCR test in Beirut (done), proof of vaccine & UK test to release registration (the 2 PCR tests on arrival. 

Needless to say it was VERY difficult to get a boarding card with the dog eared vaccination certificate card, a couple of badly formatted emails from 111 with the Manx PCR test to release swab dates, and, due to increasing desperation, my IOM driving licence 'we're not the same as the UK, loook! 🤪'

I fear a lot of us are going to be stranded in far away places this summer without a fully joined up UK-IOM system in place asap. Airlines are understandably nervous and confused by the ever moving goal posts, and Ashford & co doing fuck all about it isn't helping.

There is a boat in the morning, if you actually manage to get here ...........................:-)

The bigger concern in my view is testing positive and being stranded abroad.  That is going to be happening. A lot.  Then what happens?

Imagine in somewhere like the US?  You could see them carting you off to some sort of penitentiary. 

Like the Comis?
