IOM Covid removing restrictions

The private testing option is hilarious.  Get a positive result? Just have another until you get the result you want.

For some long haul destinations there is a 3 day window. So no.

In some destinations (typically places which are coping well currently) arrivals are then quarantined in isolation for 2 weeks at their own expense (- rather than sharing a house with people who can potentially carry it out into the wider community).

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?

Ratio of admissions to deaths is not that different, testing is obviously out due to the massive capacity increase like just about everywhere in the world.    The current UK situation is impact

It's a safe place right now because of the Manx people, not the Manx politicians. None of us want to be "the person who brought it back" so we isolate and make sure we don't transmit the virus by bein

Very low risk stuff though.  Far too many paranoid people really.

You don't like much substantiation do you?

Why say lot words when few do trick?

I think the fact we have no social distancing is invaluable to a good chunk of places here. Take 'The Other Place' in Ramsey for example, they'd get about 3 tables in instead of about 15.

COVID spreading would impact that massively.

It only impacts because there is so much unnecessary paranoia about it.

Social distancing is a pile of shit.  Two metres has no real foundation other than  it's better than hugging but not as good as ten metres.

My response was in relation to this overly paranoid view about isolation and the whole household not isolating.  It's very low risk stuff.

As the tee shirts say we need to  “keep calm and carry on”, as the whole shitshow in the UK is just starting unravel. Pull up a seat and let’s see what happens there, as ultimately that is what is going to dictate our ongoing policy.

Agree Andy Burnham is now leading a big face-off on all this rubbish. Be interesting to see what happens.

Andy Burnham (great politician that he is) is not disputing that Covid problem, rather than trying to protect the citizens of the Greater Manchester region by grabbing more money of the Tory Government. He’s calling for the circuit break.

Very interesting scientist on TalkRadio this morning explaining that only around 28 - 30% of the U.K. population is susceptible to catching the virus & the measures are WAAAAAY over the top.

He can’t go against the labour stance on circuit break but he’s highlighting the pure absurdity of the lockdown policy though. You can’t expect people to just not work and not be compensated for it. No democratically elected government has that right. If Johnson expects people to not work and lose jobs he can get his hand in his pocket to bail them out properly. If he’s not going to do that then they’re going to go to work anyway as they need the money. The whole northern lockdown situation is pointless as compliance has to be bought as after 6 months of uncertainty many are now financially not in a position to be able to comply voluntarily. If they need to go to work they’ll go to work and fuck whatever Boris Johnson says.

Guernsey explaining a bit more about new rules from 26/10 , none of this whole household isolation rubbish. 7 days testing for Jersey & Southampton is good for them

Surprised Howie wasn’t asked how this impacts air bridges as Iom residents visit Guernsey and can mix with jersey visitors

I think our air bridge has finished now hasn’t it?

No starting again next week for a few weeks and talking about more over Xmas 

Well that is an issue ...

Guernsey travellers will certainly be mixing with locals here in pubs, restaurants, shops etc

This here. 

 

It amazes me the amount of people I see calling for tighter restrictions to save lives but in the next breath are quite happy to see people being thrown on the scrapheap and that won't have an impact on them, as if money just magically grows on trees.

I see Lancashire has moved to tier 3. As far as I can see the only difference between Manchester and Liverpool and Lancs is that Manchester is led by one of the few effective politicians left.
