Teressa Cope telling us, over and over, how 'genuinely' sorry they are and how 'difficult' the decision was to stop visiting to care homes. So genuine and so difficult it has to be repeated several times to get the message across.

Somehow it doesn't sound so genuine. More patronising. Like it was at the Board meeting.

I am guessing all the residents are double jabbed so if they are this is the most amount of protection they will have. Is this the way we are going to go now? if it is then you have to ask what is the point of getting vaccinated?

Which absence itself is caused by Brexit and Covid and the incompetence of the UK Government is dealing with them.

Where are you getting that crap from? All the potatoes grown by Walkers come from UK.

Just got this from IOM BANK

With a continued increase in Covid-19 cases on the island and related staffing issues, from today we politely ask that you observe social distancing and wear face coverings in our branches to help protect our customers and colleagues.  Please bear with us and be patient, as it may take a little longer for us to serve you at the moment.  We would also like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

thought cases were going down ! Have they just got the 3 open with regent street shut?

Any details of the deceased? Age and whether they were 2+2 might be helpful. If it was a young unvaccinated person they’d be using it to push vaccination, well if it was someone old and fully vaccinated it should be used to push the message that people still need to be careful.

I took the kids to Onchan park yesterday and was going to get us something to eat from the cafe but it was closed and it had a sign that said (and I am paraphrasing) we are closed due to the current covid situation on the Island, we are taking a few days to see how things go and will open again soon, none of our staff have tested positive for covid. we ended up going to the little shed by the dhoon.

The “point” or rather “points “ are:

 1.They are still an extremely vulnerable group.
Being vaccinated greatly reduces the chance of them contracting Covid and greatly reduces the severity of the illness if they do.

It can be regarded in simple terms - if they are unfortunate to contract Covid it effectively reduces  their “Covid age” by over thirty years.

It  is for basic humanitarian reasons.The effects of Covid  for someone in this vulnerable group can be terrible and It’s a horrible way to die.

2.Most ,  but not all, residents consented to be vaccinated 

3. Most,  but not every member of staff, consented  to be vaccinated

Looking at the care home deaths in UK last year - we were fortunate to have just one care home disaster.

And like I say I would assume they are all vaccinated so won't be able to get more protection, we were told vaccinations were the way back to normality but that doesn't seem to be the case. The vast majority of the population is double vaccinated yet businesses are closed people off work etc etc

Think they shut weeks ago! Missing out on the busiest time of year , must have plenty of money to just shut for no reason.

Meanwhile the cafe on Laxey promenade & many others are doing extremely well .

But the other products used in manufacture may not be.  And the potatoes aren't going to get to the factory and the crisps leave it under their own steam.  They need to be driven there and there's a growing shortage of drivers.  Modern manufacturing and supply are intensely complex procedures and Brexit with its many foreseen and unforeseen consequences is disrupting even resilient systems in a lot of ways.

The driver shortage was around long before BREXIT. If Brexit is to blame then it's because the eastern European & Turkish owner/drivers would do the work for peanuts (literally) making the profession financially unattractive for anyone local entering the sector. The average age of UK (and some EU countries) haulage drivers has increased because younger drivers have not been coming through.
