Not disagreeing with you pal but just think its a over reaction and gives the anti vaccers another drum to bang

I agree in general that the media has some questions to answer. In this case, now that the mhra and ema have found a probable link, it does seem reasonable to take the action they have.

European counties have been over reacting and criticising the AZ vaccine from the off in some cases and have done their own damage. Nobbers.

That was one of the loveliest things to ever happen. Stood in my garden sobbing like a baby! Proud to work for the NHS 👏👏👏👏❤️

I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single

Posted this in the cricket section too, but thought I’d pop this madness in this thread too, cricket clubs and sport clubs can’t serve when there’s a game going on only afterwards as far as I understand it, yet a pub can throw a screen up in a car park and get punters in. Yet a space like a cricket club where there is lots of outdoor space cannot, clubs rely on this income. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Is that based on restrictions from the 12th April? Is that likely to change on the 17th May

Yes from April 12th. can’t guarantee that changes on may 17th either.

I know we (Heaton) aren’t opening (socially) till May 17th earliest. In hindsight a good decision, all though I was keen to to see us opening. Feel for those clubs who have pushed the boat out to go from Monday, an absolutely crazy decision. Hopefully that stupid decision will be modified by May

12k fans allowed at euros games at hampden so less than 25%. Shite that 

Sub-25% capacity is pretty much how it works out what the restrictions will be here for stadium events that are allowed a crowd May 17th-June 21st once you factor in keeping alternate rows empty for one way systems, two seats empty between each bubble etc.

Technically this should be the identical formula for how people are seated in a pub, but that doesn't exactly seem to be policed much compared to the rules stadiums have to follow.

Yeah. My mate has tickets for the hampden games and they are saying covid vaccine passports going to be required here. So that will rule him out so he’s offered them to Me if that’s the case so I might just go

Cricket on - bar shut, you can bring your own though. 

No cricket - bar open. 
 

 


 

 

That's not too bad, and it's only for a few weeks.

At least spectators can attend, that's the main thing for me.....

Some employers making a negative test a condition of returning to the office.

Presumably twice/week

It’s no different to alcohol/drugs screening really. As I’ve said I’ve already taken covid  tests to go onto clients premises and will be happy to do so.

It’s great spectators are allowed. 
 

Just taking away an opportunity for clubs to start to make a little bit of revenue after long periods without any. Clubs are well set up for one way systems and table service and alike being covid secure even if it is for a few weeks.

Part of working for the council was an acceptance that you could be randomly tested.

I never was, and doubt many ever are, but it was always there!

I mentioned the other day how I've seen a few pubs erecting marquees in their gardens in preparation for next week......apparently two pubs in Biggleswade have had a visit today by some council officers, who have told them they won't be allowed to use them, unless they remove at least two sides. They can have a roof, but only two sides apparently, then it's still classed as an outdoor space. The issue, I guess, is that one you remove a couple of sides, your tent becomes a very large sail in windy conditions 🙂

It’s in our contract also and has been in every company I’ve worked for in last 20 years. Pretty standard in my industry. Just carry a bottle of piss round with me in my laptop bag just in case.
