GREAT NEWS 

REASSURING THAT THEY ARE ALREADY IN ISOLATION, HOPE THEY GET BETTER SOON 

17TH DAY OF NO UNEXPLAINED CASES 👊

REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT

ACTIVE CASES ARE LOW, IT’S CLEAR WE ARE HEADING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION 

THANKS TO THE REMARKABLE WORK OF THE 111 LINE AND CONTACT TRACING TEAM 

AND OF COURSE, THE GREAT MANX PUBLIC, TAKE A BOW 

DR HENNY 

NO COMMUNITY TRANSMISSION FOR 17 DAYS, V REASSURING 

ALL IDENTIFIED LINES OF TRANSMISSION ARE CONTAINED 

NO SURPRISE CASES ASSURES US THAT WE’VE PUT A LID ON IT 

WE WILL PICK UP TRAVEL RELATED CASES

TESTING DOESN’T CONTROL ONWARD SPREAD, BEHAVIOUR DOES. STICK TO THE GUIDANCE IF YOU ARE ASKED TO SELF ISOLATE 

IF YOU ARE A RETURNING TRAVELLER – STICK TO THE DIRECTIONS BY THE LETTER DO NOT THINK YOU CAN DEVIATE, YOU CAN’T

WE’LL PUSH ON WITH VACCINATIONS AND THEN WE CAN TRY AND GET BACK TO A COMPLETELY NORMAL LIFE LATER THIS YEAR 

HOWARD – COMIN MEETING 

NEW CHAPTER

ALL MEASURES TO BE LIFTED AT ONE MINUTE PAST MIDNIGHT ON MONDAY 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? WHAT CAN WE DO? 

THINGS WILL LOOK AND FEEL LIKE THEY DID PRE LOCKDOWN 2.0 

BUT THINGS ARE BETTER THIS TIME ROUND AS WE HAVE A VACCINE PROGRAMME 

ON MONDAY GOV WILL STEP OUT OF YOUR LIVES 

BUSINESSES CAN OPEN, SOME CONSIDERING A PHASED RETURN – THAT’S OK TOO – READY FOR YOU TO OPEN WHEN YOU ARE READY 

SCHOOLS ARE BACK ON MONDAY – YOU CAN FEEL CONFIDENT ABOUT RETURNING, BUT CHAT TO YOUR HEADTEACHER IF YOU HAVE ANY WORRIES 

THANKS TO THE TEACHERS AND PARENTS 

FROM MONDAY YOU CAN SEE YOUR MATES AND LOVED ONES 

NO RULES ON FACE MASKS – PERSONAL CHOICE 

RETURNING BORDERS TO PRE-LOCKDOWN (4) REGS

HOW PEOPLE REACT WILL BE DIFFERENT. SOME WILL BE ANXIOUS, SOME WILL WANT TO WEAR A MASK – RESPECT OTHERS CHOICES

AND IF PEOPLE WANT TO STAY AWAY FROM YOU – RESPECT THAT TOO 

NOT EVERYONE WILL BE READY FOR A HUG 

WE ARE CONFIDENT IT IS SAFE TO GET BACK TO NORMAL 

BUSINESSES SHOULD MAKE DECISIONS BASED ON THEIR STAFF AND CUSTOMER NEEDS

DAVID WILL EXPLAIN HOSPITAL, WHICH IS MORE COMPLEX

DAVID’S POINTS

POINT 3: VACCINES 

AIRPORT HUB IS A GO 

SOME TEETHING PROBLEMS. EAGER BEAVERS WERE TURNING UP AN HOUR EARLY 

PLEASE ARRIVE 10-15 MINS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT IF YOU CAN

SECOND PRIORITY GROUP – OVER 80s AND FRONTLINE HEALTH, SOCIAL CARE STAFF 46.6% HAD FIRST DOSE

STILL, SOME WAY TO GO, BUT MAKING GREAT PROGRESS AND THE PACE IS PICKING UP 

LOTS OF GOOD NEWS 

“YOU’VE BEEN AMAZING”

LET’S KEEP OUR WITS ABOUT US AND GO BACK TO THE BASICS: WASH YOUR HANDS – CALL 111 IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS 

THERE’S A PANDEMIC GOIN’ ON AROUND US 

SELF ISO – MEANS WHAT IS SAYS ON THE TIN – NO CONTACT 

QUESTIONS

HELEN: PROM – WHAT HAPPENED TO UK CONTRACTORS?

HQ: SOME STAYED, SOME WENT BACK, WE’LL NEED TO GET THEM BACK. WILL MEAN A FURTHER DELAY

HELEN: BASICALLY, GERMANY ARE SAYING OXFORD VACCINE SHOULDN’T BE GIVEN TO 65+

DAVID: ADVICE IS THAT IT’S FINE TO BE ADMINISTERED. GERMAN EVIDENCE IS BEING WIDELY DISPUTED 

DR HENNY: SAMES. PUBLISHED TRIAL RESULTS DO SHOW EFFICACY IN THOSE OVER 65+. UNDERSTAND THAT THE EU BODY HAVE ALSO APPROVED IT FOR USE WITHOUT RESTRICTION. 

AL BELL: JUST ONE 2ND DOSE WAS ADMINISTERED YESTERDAY. HOW COME?

DAVID: DON’T FORGET THAT ONCE DEFROSTED THEY NEED TO BE USED WITHIN 5 DAYS FROM DEFROST. 

AL BELL: DO WE HAVE A FIRM NUMBER OF THE COST OF A PCR TEST TO TAXPAYER?

DAVID: ABOUT A HUNDRED QUID A TEST. BUT IT’S BALLPARK AS THERE ARE HIDDEN COSTS LIKE STAFF TIME. 

AL BELL: CAN WE HAVE A COST TO DATE?

DAVID: LOTS TO TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION, WOULD BE INTERESTING BUT IT’S A WASTE OF TIME WORKING IT OUT 

SAM: BUSINESSES WANTING TO PREPARE, CAN THEY GO IN THIS WEEKEND?

HQ: YES, BUT PLEASE RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING 

DAVID: STAFF CAN ENTER TO PREPARE BUT DON’T SERVE PEOPLE. TAKE PRECAUTIONS 

SAM: WHAT ABOUT THE NEW VACCINE? HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT US?

DAVID: EXPECTED SECOND HALF OF THIS YEAR, WE’LL RECEIVE THE SAME RATIO. LOOKS VERY POSITIVE BUT WANNA WAIT CBN (CAUTIOUS BY NATURE) 

DR HENNY: NICE ONE DAVID. THESE ARE PUBLISHED TRIAL RESULTS SO NEED TO GO THROUGH REGULATOR FOR AUTHORISATION. THEN WE NEED TO GET THE PAPERWORK SIGNED OFF AND SORT THE SUPPLY CHAIN 

LEANNE: UPDATE ON COMPASSIONATE TRAVEL GROUNDS?

HQ: CONSIDERED AGAIN FROM THE 26TH JAN. 

DAVID: SHOULD BE A SERIOUSLY SICK RELATIVE OR FUNERAL ATTENDANCE 

LEANNE: DATE FOR CARE HOMES RESIDENTS TO BE VACCINATED?

DAVID: FIRST DOSE BY MID-FEB. SECOND DOSE BY THE END OF MARCH FOR FULL VACCINATION 

SIMON: EVERYONE IS BUZZING TO GET BACK TO NORMAL. WAS THE COMIN DECISION UNANIMOUS?

HQ: COMIN WERE DELIGHTED TO MOVE FORWARD. DATA SHOWS WE’RE IN A GOOD POSITION. NOT GONNA SHARE THE VOTE, IT’S CONFIDENTIAL 

SIMON: HAS THERE BEEN AN INCREASE IN DEMAND FOR MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES?

DR HENNY: NO HARD DATA. IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY CATEGORICALLY AS WE DON’T HAVE THE DATA. WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO LOOK BACK ON IT. NOTHING TO CREATE A STRONG SIGNAL OF CONCERN

ALEX W: 2ND DOSE CAN CAUSE MORE SIDE EFFECTS. ANY ADVICE FOR PREPPING?

DAVID: SIDE EFFECTS ARE WELL KNOWN AND NOT UNUSUAL. EVIDENCE IS SYMPTOMS LAST 24 HOURS AS BODY BUILDS UP THE ANTIBODIES. PERFECTLY NORMAL. 

DR HENNY: NICE ONE DAVID. INFORMATION YOU ARE GIVEN GIVES SOME ADVICE. WELL DOCUMENTS AND TO BE EXPECTED. CHECK THE LEAFLET FOR MORE 

ALEX W: DOUGLAS COUNCIL HAVE HIKED THEIR RATES. LIB VAN DON’T THINK THEY SHOULD, FACEBOOK AREN’T HAPPY EITHER?

HQ: I’M ALRIGHT JACK, I LIVE IN MAROWN. 

NEED TO MONITOR THE SITUATION TO PROTECT THE VULNERABLE. WE’VE ALREADY SHELLED OUT £200m TO HELP INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES. WE CAN’T FUND EVERYTHING. BUT WILL LOOK AT IT IF PEOPLE ARE STRUGGLING 

PAUL: WHICH BUSINESSES DON’T WANT TO OPEN ON MONDAY?

HQ: PRIVATE BUSINESSES WITH TEAMS WFH, IT’S THEIR CHOICE. 

PAUL: ARE GOVERNMENT GOING BACK TO WORK?

HQ: YEAH, THEY MIGHT STAGGER IT, I’M NOT IN THE DETAIL THO

PAUL: GONNA BE MORE CAUTIOUS THIS TIME. IF WE DON’T SHAKE HANDS WE WON’T GET FLU ETC SO MAKES SENSE?

HQ: HAVE SEEN A REDUCTION IN WINTER FLU, INCREASED HAND HYGIENE HAS HELPED

DR HENNY: TRUE DAT, RATES OF FLU ARE LOWER THAN USUAL. IMPROVED HAND WASHING HAS WORKED

PAUL: ARE LESS PEOPLE DYING AS WELL?

DR HENNY: HAVEN’T REVIEWED THE DATA YET, BUT WE WILL SOON 

DAVID: IT’S OK TO BE NERVOUS, IT’S NATURAL, DON’T DO ANYTHING YOU’RE NOT COMFORTABLE WITH. 

JOSH: HOW LIKELY IS IT THAT WE WILL START TO SEE SPREAD AGAIN?

DR HENNY: AN EVER PRESENT RISK. WE ARE ONLY AS COVID SAFE AS THE LAST PERSON ACROSS THE BORDER. WE ALL NEED TO TAKE THAT MESSAGE TO HEART. IF IT GETS INTO THE COMMUNITY IT CAN SPREAD QUICKLY, LIKE GUERNSEY.

WE WERE LUCKY THAT WE COULD IDENTIFY LINES OF TRANSMISSION BACK AND MAP AND CLOSE OFF LINES OF TRANSMISSION. IF THOSE INITIAL PEOPLE HAD BEEN ASYMPTOMATIC IT COULD HAVE SPREAD FURTHER AND FURTHER, THAT’S WHERE THINGS CAN GO BADLY WRONG.

JOSH: ARE YOU CONFIDENT IN THE SUCCESS LOCKDOWN 2.0? WILL YOU FOLLOW THE SAME ROUTE IF WE NEED TO?

HQ: YEP, SUCCESS THANKS TO THE GREAT MANX PUBLIC. 

ON A CASE BY CASE BASIS. SHOULD THERE BE ANOTHER OUTBREAK WE MIGHT LET CONSTRUCTION CONTINUE BUT WILL BE CASE BY CASE? NEED TO LEARN FROM EXPERIENCES. LEARNING ALL THE TIME. 

DELIGHTED THAT WE WORKED TOGETHER TO STICK TO THE LOCKDOWN, IT SEEMS TO HAVE WORKED, SHARING EXPERIENCES WITH OUR MATES IN GUERNSEY 

CLOSING

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING EVERYONE 

GREAT MANX PUBLIC HAVE DONE US PROUD 

ALL BEING WELL, MONDAY SHOULD BE A WELCOME RETURN TO THE NEW NORMAL, ENJOY IT, YOU’VE EARNED IT. 

AND PLEASE BE KIND TO EACH OTHER.
