  • (CONTACT TRACING WILL BE STRAIGHT UP THEIR ARSES IF THERE IS A NEW CASE)

  • CAN WE BE BOLDER WITH THE RELAXING THE RULES? DEFFO

BUT WE CHOSE A MANX SOLUTION FOR OUR MANX SITUATION 

THE TIME HAS COME FOR A NEW SET OF DECISIONS 

MONDAY 15TH JUNE WAS ALWAYS GONNA BE A BIGGIE…

MANY EATERIES CAN COME BACK, AS WELL AS GYMS (JUST KEEP IT CALM ON THE SUPER SWEATY ACTIVITY)

COMIN DECIDED TO TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK AT THE OTHER RESTRICTIONS TODAY

GUESS WHAT? WE’RE GONNA GO FURTHER KIDS…

  • WE’RE NOT FAR OFF 28 DAYS WITHOUT A CASE = 2 X COVID INCUBATION PERIOD 

  • PUBLIC HEALTH CALL THIS LOCAL ELIMINATION 

  • WE’RE CLOSE TO 100% FREE WITHOUT A VACCINE 

WE ARE READY TO REMOVE ANY LEGAL REQUIREMENT FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING FROM THE 15TH OF JUNE 

  • WE’RE STILL LOOKING OUT FOR THE VULNERABLE THO

  • SOCIAL DISTANCING AND PPE WILL REMAIN IN HEALTH AND CARE ENVIRONMENTS 

  • THIS MOVE  WILL ALLOW OUR SOCIETY TO COME BACK TOGETHER AND OUR ECONOMY TO THRIVE 

  • HEAD TEACHERS CAN INCREASE NUMBERS IN SCHOOLS

  • CAVEAT – 1M MIGHT COME BACK IF OUR CASES INCREASE 

  • NOW IT’S UP TO YOU TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS – YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH BETTER THAN THE GOVERNMENT 

REMEMBER THE BASICS

  • STAY AT HOME IF YOU HAVE FLU SYMPTOMS AND CALL 111

  • WASH YOUR HANDS

  • KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU 

BUT IF YOU FEEL 100% – YOU DO YOU HONEY, GET OUT THERE AND LIVE YOUR DAMN LIFE 

BORDERS

BORDERS BEING CLOSED HAS GOT US THROUGH THIS PANDEMIC 

WE’RE KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THE STEADILY IMPROVING SITUATION IN THE UK

BUT NOT READY TO MAKE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES YET

PUBS & CLUBS

PUBS, CLUBS, RESTOS ETC MIGHT BE ABLE TO OPEN SOONER THAN WE THOUGHT. MORE ON THIS NEXT WEEK.

GUIDANCE WILL BE REFRESHED ASAP, EXPECT IT TO BE GENERAL THOUGH

GATHERINGS 

WILL BE DISCUSSED ON MONDAY, WE HOPE TO HAVE POSITIVE NEWS ON HOW MANY YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR HOUSE THEN. 

STICK TO 2 IN AND 10 OUTSIDE TIL THEN PLEASE

QUESTIONS 

HOSPITAL WAITING LIST REDUCTION ISN’T GOING TO BE A QUICK PROCESS. SOME CLINICS ARE ALREADY COMING BACK, MORE ON BACK 2 CARE TOMORROW

WE CAN’T JUST BRING IN EXTRA STAFF TO CATCH UP, WE CAN’T ROUND UP THE HEALTH TROOPS AS EVERY OTHER COUNTY IS ALSO STRUGGLING 

CANCER REFERRAL RATE HAS BEEN STEADY BUT WE HAVE A BACKLOG IN SCREENINGS 

WE CAN BE BOLD ABOUT RELAXING SOCIAL DISTANCING BECAUSE OUR BORDERS ARE CLOSED

WE NEED TO GET ON AND GET OUR LIVES BACK TO NORMAL. SO LET’S JUST GET ON WITH IT 

WE WILL BE GIVING PUBLIC AS MUCH DETAIL AS POSS GOING FORWARD 

REPATRIATION TEAM ARE DOING A HARD AND TOUGH JOB WORKING 7 DAYS A WEEK. THERE ARE STILL STRICT RULES 

WE’LL BE ONE OF THE FIRST IN THE WORLD TO ANNOUNCE NO SOCIAL DISTANCING FROM MONDAY 

IF YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE AT 1M, THAT’S UP TO YOU 

LOVELY TO SEE THE DOUGLAS NURSING HOME DOING A DRIVE IN VISITATION

ON MONDAY, SPEED LIMIT GOES UP TO 60MPH, HOPING TO TOTALLY LIFT IT BY THE END OF THE MONTH 

ONE OF THE THINGS WE DID DO RIGHT WAS GOING IN HARD EARLY. TESTING AND TRACING HAVE SMASHED IT TOO AND THEY ARE READY TO FIRE BACK UP AGAIN IF WE NEED THEM 

CLOSING 

I WANT TO WISH MOLLY THE BEST IN TACKLING THE TT COURSE ON A PUSH BIKE FOR THE MANX SOLIDARITY FUND TOMORROW (NOT THE TT CHALLENGE)

NO ONE CAN SAY THAT THERE IS NO RISK 

BUT OUR ISLAND IS AS AS SAFE AS IT CAN BE, BECAUSE OF YOU

KEEP ON MAKING RESPONSIBLE DECISIONS 

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND GUYS X

THEY DIDN’T PLAY A LITTLE MUSIC VIDEO AT THE END TODAY. IF THEY DID IT COULD HAVE BEEN;

TOUCH MY BODY – MARIA CAREY

TOUCH ME – THE DOORS

EVERYTIME WE TOUCH – CASCADA 

HUMAN TOUCH – BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN 

SOMETIMES WHEN WE TOUCH – DAN HILL

BUT NOT

I TOUCH MYSELF – THE DIVINYLS
