ONE HOWARD’S FAVE CHURCHILL QUOTES SEEMS FITTING 

“NOW THIS IS NOT THE END. IT IS NOT EVEN THE BEGINNING OF THE END. BUT IT IS PERHAPS THE END OF THE BEGINNING’

15TH OF JUNE IS SET TO BE A BIGGIE (ALL BEING WELL)

SOCIAL DISTANCING 

  • WE CAN’T REMOVE SOCIAL DISTANCING COMPLETELY 

  • ALL BEING WELL, WE WILL RESET DISTANCE TO KEEPING FOLK AT ARMS LENGTH 

SCHOOLS 

  • SCHOOLS WILL OPEN IN READINESS FOR PUPILS RETURNING. ATTENDANCE WILL BE VOLUNTARY 

  • PLEASE CHECK IN WITH YOUR HEAD TO SEE HOW THIS WILL AFFECT YOU

NURSERIES

  • KIDS CAN GO BACK TO NURSERIES ON THE 15TH

GATHERINGS 

  • WILL GO UP TO 30 OUTSIDE / 2 INSIDE WILL STAY THE SAME

  • 2 INSIDE BIT – RESEARCH SUGGESTS RISK IS HIGHER IN HOME. PLZ BEAR WITH US, WE’LL COME BACK TO IT SOON

SPORTS

  • SPORTS CAN SCALE UP TO 30 NOW 

HOSPITALITY

  • GREAT TO SEE BUSINESSES OFFERING OUTDOOR DINING 

  • BUT WE CAN’T RELY ON MANX WEATHER

  • 15TH – ALL RESTO’S AND CAFE’S CAN OFFER INDOOR DINING. 

  • READY FOR HOTELS TO OPEN FROM THE 15TH – WE KNOW IT WON’T ANSWER ALL CHALLENGES AS THERE ARE NO TOURISM 

PUBS & ENTERTAINMENT

  • PUBS – FROM THE 15TH – THEY CAN OPEN AS RESTO’S – SEATED SERVICE FOR A SUBSTANTIAL MEAL SERVED. A PROPER SEATED WITH MEAL, FOOD DRIVEN BUT YOU CAN HAVE A DRINK TOO 

  • NOT QUITE READY FOR BARS AND NIGHTCLUBS (SWEATY PEOPLE, SHOUTING AT EACH OTHER OVER MUSIC)

  • NO CINEMA’S AND THEATRE’S YET (CROWDS INDOORS + TOUGH CONTACT TRACING)

GYMS

  • GYMS CAN OPEN BUT NO CLASSES, SAUNAS OR INTENSE CARDIO MACHINES (15TH JUNE TOO)

BORDERS

  • WE KNOW THAT AT SOME STAGE WE NEED TO MAKE CHANGES 

  • EQUALLY WE ARE IN AGREEMENT THAT NOW IS NOT THE TIME

  • FAIR WAY FOR THE UK TO GO

  • PRIORITY FOR THE MOMENT IS GETTING OUR ISLAND UP AND RUNNING 

TWO RECENT ISSUES TO PICK UP ON;

  1. USA – MANY FROM THE IOM HAVE MADE THE US THEIR HOME, WE HAVE A DEEP CONNECTION WITH THE US. THE DEATH OF GEORGE FLOYD WAS A SHOCKING INCIDENT, WE HOPE JUSTICE PREVAILS

  2. MANX RADIO PRESENTERS COMMENTS – ANY PUBLICLY FUNDED BODY SHOULD DEMONSTRATE THE HIGHEST STANDARDS AND ETHICS

QUESTIONS 

  • AT SOME STAGE WE MAY SEE SMALL OUTBREAKS. PLEASE COME FORWARD AND GET TESTED IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS, YOU WON’T BE IN TROUBLE FOR UPSETTING THE NUMBERS

  • CABINET OFFICE TAKING ADVICE FROM PUBLIC HEALTH ON UK STUDENTS GOING BACK AND FORTH

  • NEW NORMAL ON THE ISLAND MIGHT MEAN MORE AT HOME

  • NIGHTCLUBS AND THEATRES WILL COME LAST, BORDER CONTROL IS LIKELY UNTIL UK INFECTION RATE IS REDUCED 

  • YOU CAN GO TO A BEER GARDEN FOR FOOD AND A DRINK BUT NOT A MASSIVE SESH. FOOD IS THE MAIN SHOW 

  • WE’RE WAY AHEAD OF SCHEDULE, WE’RE IN A GOOD PLACE BUT WE CAN’T ABUSE IT 

  • THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTING LOCAL IS KEY, WE’LL DO WHAT WE CAN TO SUPPORT RETAIL

  • SOCIAL MEDIA – THINK BEFORE YOU PUSH THE BUTTON 

  • GREAT TO SEE THE OLDER MANXIES USING TECH 

  • GREAT TO SEE BUSINESSES WORKING FROM HOME – MIGHT NEED TO SPEED UP FIBRE TO THE GOVERNMENT 

  • WE HAVEN’T GOT HERD IMMUNITY BUT WE’LL KNOW MORE WHEN WE DO THE ANTI BODY TESTING

  • FULL HOSPITAL  VISITING POLICY WILL BE PUBLISHED E.G. ALL VISITORS HAVE TO COMPLETE A HEALTH DECLARATION FOR FUTURE CONTACT TRACING 

    • 2 VISITORS IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES (END OF LIFE)

    • 1 ESSENTIAL VISITOR FOR A COVID NEGATIVE PATIENT 

    • NEEDS TO BE PRE-ARRANGED, YOU CAN’T JUST ROCK UP 

  • PERFECTLY LEGAL FOR COMPANIES TO HOLD CONTACT TRACING DATA 

  • WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET USED TO A NEW MANX NORMAL, THINK A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT OUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH

  • NO CHANGES TO THE MATERNITY WARD VISITING YET, BUT IT WILL BE CONSIDERED AGAIN SOON 

THANKS GUYS 

WASH YOUR HANDS 

SEE YOU NEXT WEEK 

One thought on “IOM GOV UPDATE – 4TH JUNE”

  1. You sure he said sport can scale up to 30 now?Sure he said the change in the rules of outdoor gathering will effect sport/recreation which can now scale up….meaning once the rule has changed?
