No we have not. There’s a lot of hoping here that it doesn’t go any further, but it is being poorly executed and managed by Public health,

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Well I suppose Dr Ewart could sprinkle everyone with fairy dust to make the incubation period magically over so she can be sure. That would end the waiting period.

Well that’s your opinion but respectfully I don’t agree , I think it’s been well handled but communication from Howie at start could have been better

A number of businesses are ensuring staff who were at these venues (or whose family members or direct contacts were at the venues) work from home this week.

Where possible, a sensible precaution in my view, given we will not know any true impact for at least a week.

Government should be issuing the same advice IMO.

Knowing how this works, I’d imagine the AGs office issued advised that would mean the Government made themselves liable financially if they made such instructions if e.g. a business had to close due to staff shortages.

A spokesman for 1886 stated that the venue only knew about this from Quayle's announcement at 11.45pm NYE. Quayle has contradicted this and said the venue was made aware before he made the announcement.

Clarification required...

Yet the financial consequences of a potential 'superspreader event' are likely to be far worse.

On the MR live blog it says this

Quote

First residents will receive the Pfizer Moderna vaccine tomorrow, from part of the 975 batch initially ordered in December.

 

Did Assford actually say this or is it MR being wrong again?

I know people due to receive tomorrow and Tues in 'Priority 1' and someone in 'Priority 2' scheduled for 12th Jan.

This makes the most sense really. If everyone was advised to isolate, they'd ask who is paying their bills, especially in January when typically people are skint.

Well the advice is that’s not required & the swimming pools, homes that closed should be open now ! Just mass paranoia spread by Facebook & MF

There is no health or other needs to do so

There isn't yet.

Personally I'm sticking to my guns to protect my staff and clients by insisting anyone who attended the venues at dates and times specified do not enter until 11th Jan onwards until the picture is clearer.

That's a decision made on consulting my staff on how they feel and their view hasn't changed following the briefing.

I don't blame any business for taking some additional precautions.

Not really.

Hindsight is only valid after the fact.

The fact is, tests and results for this potential outbreak are not likely to be accurate till later this week. Meanwhile, precautionary measures where possible are wise.
