They shouldn’t need to have so many staff in isolation if they’re following the rules

If they’ve got covid they should be isolating.  The secret Pizza, for example,  has three off with covid. It’s not viable to run the place with two members of staff. It’s just not safe logistically. This IS living with it. People are going to get covid and this stage is inevitable.

This is thing that I don't get. People just seem to be in denial of the reality of a global pandemic.

I think a lot of people thought that by saying ‘we’ve just got to get on with life’ thought that meant life would just go on as normal. It won’t. Not for a while.

It isn’t living with it though as nobody is being compensated for their losses. Government has just found a way to get out of paying businesses and made the pandemic their problem now. It’s going to result in a fair few folding.

That is a whole different subject but yes, of course they should be compensated. This latest ‘plan’ is to let people get on with it but the government doesn’t have to pay. Sadly they’re going to have to.

So long as their paycheck keeps rolling in they don't care!

lockdown rumoured to be a real possibility the way things are going.   get your 2 jabs here and still be locked down, wonderful.

I don't want a lockdown. I don't support more restrictions. 

 

But the previous form of Comin is that they start out bashful and confident before massively fucking up and smashing it into the hedge.

Because they don't learn; and they don't listen.

I would rather restrictions than a lockdown.

A very well known venue in Douglas has around 20 staff off covid related but is staying open if they can as mulitple floors mean then can just cut their cloth accordingly . Logistical nightmare though . These new relaxing of measures have all to do with finances and nothing else . Hope it doesnt bite them on the bum but be surprised if it doesnt sadly .

How did they know they had covid? Have they done the tests as part of being close contacts or did they get unwell so went for a test? 

I reckon there's a huge amount of people with it, 2 people in my work have had it got ill so couldn't come to work done a test then the proper test and it was positive. 

Imho this only ends when people stop getting tested. If you are sick stay off work as you would with the flu, chickenpox etc. People being off work when there is physically nothing wrong them isn't right and will continue to decimate businesses

Currently reading ‘Spike’ - the story of the pandemic so far by Jeremy Farrar, a member of Sage. Cracking read. 
 

In it he talks about herd immunity and how scientifically it was not recommended early on, as Bojo perhaps wanted. Now however, with most people vaxxed and in the middle of summer, I don’t think it’s unreasonable. 
 

I’ve been to Calf Sound Cafe this morning - plenty in there - and am out tonight, hopefully, playing a gig. I’m following my own advice and just getting on with it, but will continue to take care in shops and obviously at the hospital. If I get symptoms I’ll get a test and if positive stay in for 10 days. 
 

At the moment covid is rampant here, but hardly any are getting properly ill. Over the next couple of weeks immunity from infections will top up our immunity from vaccinations and it’ll be done. An optimistic, pragmatic opinion - I hope. 

So well written. Pity this could not have been read in Tynwald yesterday. Would have saved many hours of wind.

75% of people testing positive are symptomatic per the COVID dashboard. 

People testing positive isn’t what’s decimating business, it’s the virus running rampant and the Government absolving themselves of the problem.

Define symptomatic. Probably everyone, covid positive or not, has had symptoms of some sort over the past week or two. Headache, bit of a sniffle, coughed a couple of times, sneezy around grass cuttings…

75% is very high, and if true suggests an even bigger number of positives out there who are not being tested and are asymptomatic.

I've started wearing a mask to go into shops. Mainly because I've noticed an uptick in the amount of folks doing the same, and I believe (purely personal choice) it's the right thing to do at this point. I'm double jabbed, but well aware I can pass it on, so hopefully doing my bit to help protect others. The vaccine is doing it's job. I hope Nobles doesn't get stretched. They've all been through enough stress. 

.....those figures someone posted about Israel earlier can't be right can they? More cases in folks jabbed than un-jabbed? Hopefully someone got their spreadsheet headers mixed up.

So what exactly do you want the government to do? We are all responsible for our own health and well being. At the start of this whole thing I was well overweight, seeing that it affected overweight people I decided to lose weight, I've lost nearly 2 stone and feel great. People seem to keep banging on about the government but don't actually want to do anything themselves.  However I will agree the isolation rules need looking at
