IOM GOV UPDATE – 25 JUNE

HOWARD AND ASHY

WELL GOOD AFTERNOON 

PERFECT SUMMERS DAY ON THE IOM 

THE HOTTEST DAY IN NEARLY TWO YEARS 

ASHY AND HOWARD HAVE BEEN STUCK IN MEETINGS BUT THEY HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SUN 

PRE COVID WE WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU TO WEAR SUNCREAM AND DRINK WATER 

NOW WE ADD ‘ACT RESPONSIBLY’ TO THE LIST 

NUMBERS

NO NEW CASES 

UPDATE

WE MUST REMAIN VIGILANT AND LISTEN TO THE NAGGING VOICE IN THE BACK OF OUR HEADS – “THIS MIGHT NOT BE OVER”

WE DON’T HAVE A CRYSTAL BALL 

WHAT DOES STAYING RESPONSIBLE MEAN?

  • WASH YOUR HANDS

  • RESPECT THOSE WHO WOULD RATHER STAY AT HOME

  • PAY ATTENTION TO THE VULNERABLE 

NATURAL TO FEEL PROUD OF OUR COLLECTIVE ACHIEVEMENTS 

OUR PRIZE HAS BEEN FREEDOM 

WE CAN MEET MATES IN THE PUB 

THE MANX BUBBLE IS A REALLY NICE PLACE TO BE 

COMIN HAVE AGREED A 5 STAGE FRAMEWORK ABOUT THE BORDERS

5 = CLOSED

1 = OPEN 

CAREFULLY CONSIDERING WHEN INCREASED MOVEMENT MAY BE ALLOWED. WE LOOKED AT LEVEL 4 TODAY 

SO WHAT IS LEVEL 4?

NON ESSENTIAL TRAVEL FOR IOM RESIDENTS AND ESSENTIAL WORKERS BY AIR OR SEA

14 DAY QUARANTINE ON RETURN AND GOOD HEALTH DECLARATION 

WHEN WE REACH LEVEL 4 RESIDENTS CAN LEAVE AS LONG AS THEY SELF ISOLATE ON RETURN 

BUT NON RESIDENTS CAN’T VISIT US 

WE ARE NOT YET QUOTE READY TO PRESS GO

NEED TO WATCH UK NUMBERS FOR A LITTLE LONGER 

COMIN WILL CONSIDER EVERYTHING AGAIN NEXT THURSDAY,  HOPE TO BRING YOU MORE NEWS THEN 

WE’VE KICKED JERSEY OUT OF THREEWAY, SO WE CAN CONCENTRATE ON GUERNSEY…

DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT IOM AND GUERNSEY ARE FORMING AN AIRBRIDGE 

IDEA HAS BEEN BATTED ABOUT FOR OVER A WEEK, THERE ARE MANY BENEFITS AND FEW RISKS

GURNSEY ARE AN OFFSHORE ISLAND – IT’S A NO BRAINER 

YOU CAN HAVE A LITTLE ISLAND HOP TO TRY A NEW RESTAURANT 

WE LOOK FORWARD TO LETTING THE GUERNSEY LOT CHECK OUT OUR SPECTACULAR ISLAND 

2 FLIGHTS A WEEK TO START WITH, AIMING FOR MID-JULY 

TRAVEL AGENCIES WILL WORK ON PACKAGES ETC

GUERNSEY AND IOM ARE IN A ‘NO CASES FOR AGES’ VIP CLUB 

WHY NOT SHAKE THAT CABIN FEVER OFF IN ST PETER PORT 

QUESTIONS 

CAN’T COMMENT ON THE JERSEY VISITORS AS IT IS BEING LOOKED AT BY  THE POLICE

EXEMPTION FROM SELF ISOLATION FOR KEY WORKERS DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN GO THE PUB, IT’S JUST TO GO TO WORK. THOSE PEOPLE MUST SELF ISOLATE WHEN NOT IN WORK

PEOPLE CAN’T JUST ROCK UP TO THE ISLE OF MAN AND GO ON A BENDER

IF THERE’S AN OUTBREAK IN IOM OR GUERNSEY THEN WE’LL REVIEW EVERYTHING 

HOPE THAT WE GET TO THE DAY WHEN WE CAN OPEN OUR BORDERS TO THE REST OF THE WORLD

UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE ARE DESPERATE TO SEE UK GRANDKIDS, WE JUST NEED TO MAKE SURE IT’S SAFE 

STEAM PACKET WILL HAVE MADE A LOST BUT THEY WILL GET A LITTLE BOOST WHEN WE GET TO STAGE 4

YOU CAN DO GOOD BUSINESS DEALS IN A GLOBAL RECESSION. GOV BOUGHT THE STEAMY TO PROTECT LINKS BUT THE PEOPLE @ STEAMY MAKE THE DECISIONS

TESTING NOT REQUIRED FOR THE GUERNSEY HOLIDAYMAKERS AS THEY HAVEN’T HAD ANY CASES FOR AGES 

WOULD BE NICE TO SEE SOME MATCHES BETWEEN IOM AND GUERNSEY. CROWN DEPENDENCY CUP?

AVERAGING 76 TESTS PER DAY, BUT IT’S VERY INTRUSIVE AND THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE ANY COMMUNITY SPREAD

1,500 PEOPLE HAVE BE REPATRIATED INCLUDING PATIENT TRANSFERS. ONLY 2 COVID CASES FROM REPATRIATION SERVICE, ISOLATION MEANS IT HASN’T SPREAD IN THE COMMUNITY 

CLOSING 

LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING, READING (GEF’S UPDATE) AND HEARING HOW TODAY’S NEWS GOES DOWN

PLEASE RESPECT EACH OTHER AND DON’T FORGET THE SUNCREAM  

BYE BYE
