  • WE HAVE SQUASHED THE CURVE – BUT THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THERE WON’T BE A SPIKE IN THE FUTURE

  • IT’LL TAKE 8 DAYS TO SEE THE IMPACT OF CONSTRUCTION RETURN 

  • THE POLICE WON’T DEAL WITH HEALTH AND SAFETY AT WORK ISSUES 

  • WHY ARE PEOPLE GOING BACK TO WORK ON A FRIDAY RATHER THAN A MONDAY? THE TASK FORCE TEAM DECIDED THAT AROUND THE PROCEDURES THAT NEED TO BE PUT IN PLACE. GUERNSEY HAVE CHOSEN FRIDAY EVENING.
