IOM Covid removing restrictions

It's fairly typical of the incompetence of the Manx government here that we actually have looked at the different ways that Jersey and Guernsey have handled things and then produced something that is actually worse then either from several viewpoints.  In particular the lack of automatic 14 day isolation for those who have been in particular areas in the last 14 days[1] is less stringent than even Jersey is.  Charging for a test is also a bad idea. 

[1]  From Thursday Jersey is including some areas of the UK in this, such as Bradford and Bolton.

Exactly they just don’t have a plan at all, no one would argue over a classification guide rather than the one size fits no one approach

Can you guys start a separate thread titled "Jersey is ace - oh no it isn't" and leave this one to a discussion on IOM and the coronavirus?

...and I so wanted a long illustrious career at the DHSC   I run my own company so my involvement with the DHSC to set up and keep the COVID19 lab running wasn't exactly in the professional caree

I'll put a big disclaimer here that I'm not the person who decides who gets tested and when.  Saying that, I am a scientist who understands that if you test someone on the day they arrive and the

Coming to IOM no matter where you have been you will mix with people from another area. At the airport or at the sea terminal. No point in coming from somewhere v low risk to mix with someone from a high risk area. Unless you have a hazmat suit.

It comes down to who the hell is actually advising this Government & on what grounds are the policies being driven.

We seem to be fudging it.

Jersey are a live, active case study. 74 days re-opened & handling the situation very nicely.

That is why I think we will be going back to 14 days. All of our uk ports of entry and exit are in high risk places, with the possible exception of London.

Spoke to my friend in St. Helier only last week. Nobody wearing masks & people are going about their business as normal with a healthy respect for each other in regards SDing.

The town & Island is thriving. Their economy is on it's way back as a result of a carefully implemented reopening plan.

We've already had calls for another lockdown or 14 days Q on the back of two cases.

Excellent news. Let's hope this is sustainable until the end of the year with MERA & wage support now suspended.

I hate to impose on your innocent, trusting nature, but have you ever heard of the phrase "file photo".  Unless it says that this was a specific street on a specific date, that's almost certainly what it is.

You're right, clearly masks aren't a thing in Jersey.

Like everything else it's all about probabilities.  The odds of catching the virus are going to be much higher if you have spent time in a high infection rated area than if you happen to walk past someone who has.  Unless you're going to quarantine everyone individually for three weeks or more, then you need to take things like that into account with regard to who gets the less rigorous treatment.

On public transport but if you listen to Cambon it’s everywhere and all gyms, pools etc shut which is a lie.

if you speak to friends & colleagues in Jersey they say it’s thriving & limited use of masks is a small price for more freedom

Could that have been taken in 2019 perhaps... :rolleyes:

No it’s this week as friends live there. Why does anyone on here who wants no changes slag off the other islands because they are trying something different which is successful?

When Guernsey say they will change to next phase in next few months , Cambon says they will need to change social distancing etc , well they’ve already said they won’t and have policies on website. If they listened to Cambon then nothing would happen.

What exactly were they being complacent about on the basis that absolutely no rules apply if any kind on a day to day basis? 

Take Lagman off ignore and you might actually work out who I was responding to before getting all Covid expert
