You can copy it it (ie write it out manually) on blank paper. One of my sons works in the food industry, so he'll be needing it every day.
Exactly that. We've filled the top part in with ink but the tick boxes and date with pencil so that we should get away with just one form.

Thanks, both common-sense solutions. Hope it works well.

Lots of places have had to close here in Cyprus, including hotels until 30th April. No tourists allowed in at the moment and will be reviewed again at a later date. Rigorous controls for those in the allowed groups when arriving at the airports.

Schools closed for a few days - to be reviewed.

Shops, cafes etc. closed only pharmacies, medical treatment places, supermarkets, bakeries and takeaways allowed, limits on numbers in a gathering - all policed and some already fined.

Students at colleges and universities off the island being offered 750 euro to stay put rather than return here for Easter. Home working as much as possible.

Island is in lock down.

A slight aside,but the "atmosphere" when Professor Chris Whitty starts to speak reminds me of Ian
MacDonald during the Falklands conflict.

Had an interesting conversation during my permitted walk today.  I met a chap who turned out to be a Parish Councillor in the next village and we chatted for a while, keeping a good distance apart.  He told me that councils had received a letter from the Government inquiring how many spaces they had left in their burial grounds.  Makes you think.  :o

The toilet roll panic is quite simple.
We have been asked to cough or sneeze into our elbows, therefore people need lots of toilet paper because most people can't tell their arse from their elbow.
:D

Stop worrying so much about how it's going to work, lots of counties are doing all this isolation stuff already and it is doable, everywhere is finding ways to cope with the difficulties in different ways that suit the area, we can all do this.
I've been isolating with my mother for a while now, we have family to do our shopping but if we didn't in our town we just have to ring the local Garda (police) station and they have the list of people willing to shop etc and will sent some one to help. Simple and safe system put in place by the local police.
