THE ECONOMIC SHOCK CONTINUES TO BE FELT LOCALLY, WE KNOW UNEMPLOYMENT HAS INCREASED AND SOME SECTORS ARE STRUGGLING

PUBS ARE FULL, SCHOOLS ARE BACK, SHOPS ARE OPEN

ONLY THING THAT’S NOT BACK TO NORMAL IS…

THE BORDER

BRODER RESTRICTIONS ARE OUR NEW NORMAL 

EXTRA FLIGHTS TO GUERNSEY 

THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC IS SADLY FAR FROM OVER 

AT COMIN TODAY WE DISCUSSED INTRODUCING  A 7 DAY ISOLATION. EXACT DATE DEPENDS ON THE UK INFECTION RATE 

THIS WILL BE FURTHER REVIEWED AT THE END OF AUGUST 

MEASURES IN PLACE PROVIDE THE RIGHT BALANCE TO PROTECT THE ISLAND 

OUR MANX STATUS QUO… 

SOME PAIN 

BUT A GREAT DEAL OF GAIN 

WE’RE STILL AT LEVEL 4 FOR NOW – 2 WEEKS ISO UPON RETURN 

ESSENTIAL WORKERS ONLY FOR NOW 

THE FINAL CONFERENCE CURTAIN 

NO CHIEF MIN WOULD WANT THESE BRIEFINGS, THO I HOPE THEY’VE HELPED AND BROUGHT THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER 

THEY’VE BEEN A BLAST BUT THIS IS THE LAST BRIEFING FOR THE TIME BEING 

CHECK OUT SOCIAL MEDIA INSTEAD

VIGILANCE MUST BE OUR WATCHWORD 

YOU ARE THE REASON WE ARE HERE TODAY 

WASH YOUR HANDS, SNEEZE INTO YOUR ELBOW, CALL 111 IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS, BE CAREFUL IF YOU TRAVEL 

QUESTIONS 

  • POTENTIAL 7 DAY ISO CHANGE – YOU COME BACK AND QUARANTINE, ON DAY 7 YOU GET A TEST, GO HOME. IF YOU ARE NEG THE FOLLOWING DAY, THEN YOU CAN GO INTO WORK. BUT YOU CAN’T GOT TO THE PUB, THEATRE OR ANYWHERE TOO BUSY 

  • WE NEED EXTRA MACHINES AND PEOPLE TO DO THE TESTING. PLAN IS FOR IT TO BE AVAILABLE IN SEPT IF UK IS IN A GOOD PLACE. HANDY FOR PARENTS TAKING THEIR KIDS TO UNI 

  • BORDERS MOVE FROM 4 TO 3 IF UK HAS AN INFECTION RATE OF 1 IN 5,000

  • HOPING THE UK GO FROM PLATEAU TO IMPROVEMENT. HOPE THE LOCAL LOCKDOWN AND SPAIN QUARANTINE WILL HELP

  • ON OBESITY – WE’LL BE PUSHING MORE HEALTHY LIVING CONTENT 

  • OUR OBESITY SITUATION IS SIMILAR TO THE UK. BUT OUR OBESITY SCHEME WILL BE UNIQUE TO THE ISLE OF MAN AND FOCUSSED THROUGH EDUCATION

  • 7 DAY PERSONAL ISO TEST WILL COST ABOUT FIFTY QUID 

  • WE’LL LOOK AT MASKS AGAIN IF COMMUNITY TRANSITION RESTARTS. YOU WON’T NEED TO WEAR ONE IN A RESTAURANT THOUGH 

  • NOT AWARE OF ANY 14 DAY ISO BREACHES OR PROSECUTIONS 

CLOSING 

THANKS TO THE GREAT MANX PUBLIC FOR TUNING IN 

HQ – “IT’S GOODBYE FROM ME”
