I am confused (a frequent occurrence!)

Having watched the news tonight - am I right in thinking that over 70s CAN go out, but are not supposed to socialise and should just keep distance between themselves and other people?

Or have I misunderstood?

As I understood it:


For those over 70 and healthy (ie with no underlying health conditions of concern), the recommendation is to proceed as usual and follow the instructions for all other people (who have no special health concerns) to avoid social contact and crowded places.

The suggestion seems to be avoid unnecessary business meetings or travel, and work from home if possible.

For an indeterminate period.

I think they are now recommending that for everyone Pennines. No pubs, cinema, theatres in fact anywhere where there may be a crowd of people in close proximity to each other. But recommending that older people and those with pre existing medical take extra care.

It was a bit confusing wasn't it!!

However the recommendation is that anyone who is in a category who is offered a free flu jab each winter, (which is all over 65's plus others with a health condition) should not go out for 12 weeks from the point in time that this restriction is announced which is likely to be in the coming week.

Never picked up on that point Pheno.

Or have I completely misunderstood what was being said on the TV.

IgorStrav and Dorrie -- thank you, that is what I had thought, but I wasn't absolutely sure.

Pheno -- I didn't hear a statement about those entitled to a free flu jab (ie over 65s) -- so that means over the coming week - over 65s, and those younger, with health conditions allowing them a free flu jab, may be told not to go out for 12 weeks?  Is that correct? (Sorry to be so dense).

The guidance is unclear and confusing which is a shocking indictment on those giving the guidance. Also to criticise people for panic buying while saying that in a few days time people must stay at home for four months seems a very clear instruction to panic buy!

It starts at the weekend.  I posted about it a while ago with a pic of my walk!

Thank you Gadget - I saw your lovely photo -- but it just said 'social distancing' which I took to mean, keeping your distance  -- and not an extension to the 'not going out' to include people entitled to free flu jabs -- ie what Pheno has just mentioned.

with regard to the 'people who are invited for a flu jab' I understood that to be not 'everyone over 65' but those who because of other health issues received one.
