Here, the Isle of Man borders remain closed for the forseeable future.

We have 23 deaths - 19 of them unfortunately at a single care home.
Only 1 new case this week.
And only 9 active cases.

- 'Lifestyle businesses' such as hairdressers, barbers and tattoo artists will be able to reopen from 1 June, provided they follow government guidance.

- Also from the 1 June, cafes and restaurants will be able to open 'outdoor areas' to customers, provided it's safe to so, with government set to issue further advice for this industry.

- People can visit friends and relatives, outdoors, in groups of 10 or less.

- groups of no more than 2 people may visit somebody else's home.

- With immediate effect, trades such as physiotherapy and podiatry can restart, provided they have appropriate PPE and risk assessments.


So, we are getting there.
I think borders will only reopen once the situation in the UK is deemed to be "under control"?

Glad you appreciated my "Thursday Clap", Jillruss

I loved it! I tried to give you a mention but couldn't find where I'd read it!

I think the point about all these 'you can't do this' but 'you can do that's and however many people you can or can't do it with, is all going by the board. Very few people are taking any notice. Hairdressers, and tattoo artists? Hardly essential, are they? I can't think of many more things totally 'un-distant'.

If they want to do this tracing and tracking thing properly, they should take note of anyone who gets sick after a 'social un-distancing' day at the seaside and put them to the bottom of the list for intensive care!  See if they clap for that!!

I see they are now talking about easing the lockdown first in London. Does that mean The City or Greater London. Imagine what that will mean as well, people from outside London flooding in to restaurants and bars.

Then there is the quarantine for those coming in - why wait until the 8th of June! Also as has been pointed out anyone can arrive, travel into London by tube, train, bus or coach and infect people on there before going into quarantine. Who is going to do all the checking as well to ensure they are sticking to it? Local police?

We locked down early - all borders closed!
And borders are still closed.

14 day isolation for any repatriations. Initially in a country hotel, but now allowed anywhere not shared with other people.

It's working for us ;D ;D

 I've just received a letter cancelling my out-patient appointment - "Due to the current climate we are expecting a high volume of inpatient care at this Trust and following the advice from Public Health England to all Trusts, it is with regret that we need to cancel your appointment ..."

Coincidentally, today I received a letter informing me that I have an appointment during the first week in July to see the eye specialist who performed a catarract operation at the start of the year. 

I don't think my immune system has been topped up these last few weeks because my offspring have been guarding me against any outside movement - one even driving from another town to leave groceries, etc. that he believes I need,  on my doorstep.  As he would have to drive me to/from the "local" hospital in a distant town, I doubt he would agree to do it.

Yes, if it was isolation in a hotel that might work, but they are going to be allowed anywhere. The plan is people should be encouraged to get for the airport to where they are staying by car, but if not, they can use public transport!
