IOM GOV UPDATE – 18TH JUNE

HOWARD AND ASHY 

WELL GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE

WE CAN SAY, THAT WE ARE COVID 19 FREE

A MILESTONE OF GREAT IMPORTANCE 

ASHY WITH NO NUMBERS

COS WE’RE COVID FREE 

DENTISTRY 

SPENT SOME TIME REDESIGNING DENTISTS

TO START WITH THEY WILL ONLY CARRY OUT URGENT TREATMENTS 

PPE AND SOCIAL DISTANCING WILL STAY IN PLACE TO PROTECT STAFF AND PATIENTS 

ALL DENTISTS ARE TAKING IT STEP BY STEP 

UPDATE 

WE’VE BROKEN THROUGH A SIGNIFICANT BARRIER

THOUGH THERE HAS BEEN THE TRAGIC LOSS OF 24 PEOPLE, AND SUFFERING FOR MANY 

THE PERSONAL PRESSURES MUST NOT BE FORGOTTEN

28 DAYS FREE, SIGNIFICANT – DOUBLE THE COVID INCUBATION PERIOD 

LOCAL ELIMINATION 

IT’S AS GOOD AS IT GETS 

WE WERE THE FIRST IN BRITISH ISLES TO REMOVE SOCIAL DISTANCING 

DON’T FORGET YOU CAN HAVE A PINT TONIGHT 

GO TO THE THEATRE OR MARVEL AT THE LATEST BLOCKBUSTER AT THE PICTURES 

PUSH UPS TO POPCORN – GO FOR IT GUYS 

ENJOY YOUR FREEDOM AND BUY LOCAL, THEY NEED OUR SUPPORT NOW 

THE KIDS ARE BACK ON MONDAY

THINGS ARE STARTING TO FEEL NORMAL 

THANKS TO PARENTS AND KIDS FOR YOUR PATIENCE 

THANKS TO SCHOOL LEADERSHIP FOR GETTING KIDS BACK TO SCHOOL TO RECLAIM A BIT OF TERM 

RETURN TO NORMALITY WON’T BE EASY FOR SOME 

SOME WILL NEED SUPPORT 

GREAT VIDS ON THE COVID WEBSITE 

WE HAVE ALL LIVED A DIFFERENT EXPERIENCE, SOME STILL WANT TO SOCIAL DISTANCE 

WE’RE GEARING UP TO SUPPORT PEOPLE MORE, THE SAMARITANS ARE JOINING US TOMORROW

WE MAY SEE OTHER CASES, LOOK WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW ZEALAND. IT’S NOT A SIGN OF FAILURE BUT A TIMELY REMINDER THAT WE NEED TO BE CAUTIOUS WHEN MAKING CHANGES TO BORDERS 

IF WE SEE THE SAME THING HERE WE ARE READY TO GO 

BUSINESSES – STAY PREPARED AND READY TO TACKLE AN OUTBREAK IF IT DOES HAPPEN 

SO WHAT COMES NEXT?

  • 60MPH SPEED LIMIT WILL BE LIFTED ON THE 22ND 

  • 23RD JUNE THE STATE OF EMERGENCY SHOULD BE LIFTED 

AND OF COURSE BORDERS

CLOSURE OF THE BORDERS HAS KEPT US SAFE 

MANX BUBBLE – WE CAN HUG, AND GO TO THE PUB NOW

KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THE UK

GUY’S, WE’RE JUST NOT READY TO OPEN THE BORDERS

QUESTIONS 

BORDERS WILL BE A STAGED APPROACH, FIRST STAGES WILL BE MAKING IT EASIER FOR LOCALS TO LEAVE THE ISLAND AND THEN COME BACK. 14 DAY QUARANTINE AT HOME WILL BE THE MAIN PROTECTION 

WE’RE CHATTING WITH GUERNSEY CHIEF ABOUT A CORRIDOR, AND WE MIGHT LOOK AT OTHER JURISDICTIONS THAT HAVE NO CASES 

IF A NEW TEST COMES ALONG, IT COULD BE A GAME CHANGES AS WOULD A VACCINE 

3 REASONS WHY WE HAVE DONE SO WELL – GREAT MANX PUBLIC, TEST TEST TEST / TRACE TRACE TRACE / 14 DAY QUARANTINE AND BORDER CLOSURE 

NOT LOOKING TO REDUCE 14 DAY QUARANTINE PERIOD ANYTIME SOON 

IF HOWARD WENT TO WESTMINSTER FOR A  MEETING AND CAUGHT COVID WITHOUT REALISING AND THEN TUBED, THEN CAME HOME AND WAS TESTED HE COULD SHOW UP AS NEGATIVE FOR A FEW DAYS BUT STILL HAVE IT AND BE WALKING AROUND, CAUSING A SECOND WAVE UNINTENTIONALLY 

WHAT IS THE POINT IN TAKING MEDICS AWAY FROM NORMAL HEALTHCARE TO SEND THEM TO THE BORDERS

PCR TESTING IS GOOD BUT NOT AN ABSOLUTE SOLUTION. BEST DEFENCE IS 14 DAYS 

BUT THIS IS NOT A TABLET OF STONE, DEPENDS ON HOW THE RISK PROFILE OF OTHER NATIONS CHANGES

SOUTH KOREA HAVE AN APP, BUT NO ONE USED IT. 

ASHY WITH HIS TECH HAT ON WILL BE WATCHING TO SEE HOW THE LATEST APP UNFOLDS

PAUL: I CAN FOLLOW UP ON MY ASHY SUNDAY SPEC…

HQ: NO PLUGS PLEASE 

PAUL:  IT FEELS LIKE IT’S THE END OF TERM FOR THE PRESS CONFS. YOU’VE GOT NO NEW NEWS?

HQ: WE’RE DOWN TO TWO A WEEK NEXT WEEK. I’D LIKE TO SEE IT CONTINUE, WE’LL MONITOR THE RATINGS AND SEE WHAT FEEDBACK WE GET

ASHY: IT’S NOT HALF TERM, ITS MID TERM 

PAUL: WHEN CAN I GET IN A ROOM WITH YOU AGAIN? TALKING TO YOU DOWN THE END OF THE PIPE ISN’T IDEAL…

HQ: DUNNO PAUL 

ASHY: LOL

ADULT SOCIAL CARE IS BEING REVIEWED, GOOD INNOVATION SO FAR. LOOKING TO RELEASE RESTRICTIONS NEXT WEEK. I KNOW IT’S BEEN FRUSTRATING FOR FAMILIES, BEAR WITH US 

REPATRIATION TEMP CHECKS – THEY ONLY PICK UP THE TEMP – ONLY ONE SYMPTOM

THE BIG GUN WE HAVE IS THE 14 DAYS. IT’S PROTECTING THE ISLE OF MAN 

WE WON’T FORCE PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS ON THE BOAT. IT’S NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO TELL THE STEAMY WHAT TO DO ON THE VESSEL

WE HAVE DEXAMETHASONE ON ISLAND AND CAN ACCESS UK SUPPLIES IF WE NEED TO. IT’S NOT A CURE, IT REDUCES THE RISK OF DEATH THOUGH 

SHOUTOUTS

POLICE WOULD LIKE TO THANK STEVE AND MARK FROM THE PARAMEDICS 

LET’S HOPE THE WEATHER HOLDS UP 

WE HAVE AN ISLAND AS SAFE AS POSS 

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND 

STAY SAFE
