I do actually have some respect at this time for all staff at asda at Shaw and all over the country but to make things less hazzardus for the workers surely what they are doing in some stores is allowing so many in the store which is more sensible rather than putting the customer and staff members in danger. As for trolleys their are two in shaw so one cleaning them and one putting them away would benefit people who are struggling like the elderly or disabled. Do you clean the screen regulars because that is cross contaminating? I understand the pressure and anxiety supermarket staff are under but feel in some areas they could improve like alot in big stores with the spread of the virus

I've just returned from doing my house bound mother in laws shopping and was shocked at the number of couples and families walking on the prom hand in hand.... :o :roll:

If you or anybody you know is one of these idiots in view of the Government's warning about contact then you bloody deserve anything that may come your way in the coming days.

How many more times does it take for verbal warnings to get through to these stupid and idiotic individuals who appear to believe that they are immune.....

Better to stay at home with a crap bottle of beer and cheer yourself up by watching outbreak, contagion and for something closer to home, Chernobyl :lol:

it’s the 7th day of the lockdown incubation period, basically it’s around now you should start to show symptoms if you’ve got it.

You are allowed out to exercise.
If you live in the same household, there is no problem with holding hands.

If they are from different households, then they are numpties, but otherwise, what's the problem?

I genuinely think the government are seriously needing to give thought to people's mental health & soon. For some people, they are in effect suggesting months of solitary confinement. You couldn't do that to misbehaving prisoners!

Indeed .....Neil's comments on this demonstrate perfectly how little people digest information properly.

I'm married to one of today's statistics, one of the 17,089 tested positive in the UK as of this morning. We both work for the NHS and because she had a cough, sent home & swabbed. The rules are I'm isolated for 14 days as well, even if she recovers and returns to work before then. I am 99.9% sure I've got it as well but we only have the mild symptoms. No point me being swabbed, it wouldn't change anything, grounded for 14 days minimum due to my wife's result.

The guidance for anyone known to have the virus is the same as those showing symptoms. Had we not worked for the NHS, we'd be in the showing symptoms category.

We have only left the house for one exception, to drive to mum's and phone her from her garden so she could see we are OK. She's 85, fell & broke her hip 4 weeks ago and came out of hospital 2 weeks ago with a new hip. We can't go near her but her carers keep us updated and she has an amazing neighbour.

We also have an amazing community, from Kelly's Heroes at Seaborn Road Londis to the neighbours, one of whom dropped a Saturday night kit at our door yesterday, beer, wine & popcorn. And family of course.

If you're healthy and feeling OK, fit enough to go for a walk every day, think yourselves lucky. There's people far worse off than you and by that I don't include myself.

I'd also say now's the time to drop the forum animosity but I can't see that happening, not even Boris could sort that out :(

I forgot to confirm for all the hoarders that C19 doesn't cause you to shit yourselves to death.

Thank you. Can't find the item now but one town has shamed residents by posting photos of the piles of fresh food binned because it's gone out of date after they stripped the store shelves bare.

We are being asked quite righty to stay home...... so why is Heathrow and Gatwick still accepting 20 plus flights a day from Covid-19 hotspots with no checks?
A few moments ago flight director Gene Kranz requested that everyone sit down get prepared for events that are coming, And he closed with a remark of good luck to all of you

I hear the Steam Racket Co. are temperature checking people at Heysham harbour. I know that now only Manx people can travel home, but does this mean there are infected Manx people wandering round Heysham, that weren't allowed on the boat , looking for digs?

How can passengers keep 2m apart on a train or for that matter on a bus....... :?: :?:

The Big Blue Bus that travels between London and Glasgow always appears to be full even of late.

Even Manx residents can't freely travel home. They need special permission. For the last week or so, no-one has travelled except certain 'VIP's' (a doctor & his wife were the only ones I've heard of). There are some people stuck in England who can't even find a hotel that's open to stay in. One Manx resident has been stuck in Thailand. He's *hopefully* on a flight to England today from Bangkok but doesn't know when he'll be allowed on to IoM. And when he does, even though he has his own home, he has to go to a specific hotel for two weeks quarantine and pay for the honour.
