    Covid-19: Tightening the screw..

    Well we have just had our daily briefing from our (Isle of Man) government and it looks very much now like the gloves are coming off. The following will be in place from tonight:


    • Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine. But even this must be as infrequent as possible - shops maintaining a 'one in-one out' system of shopping.
    • A brief period of exercise each day, for example a run, walk, or cycle - alone or with members of your household only
    • Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
    • Moving under 18s between the homes of separated parents
    • Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home. The Island is, more or less, in total shutdown.
    • No flights, commercial or private, into the Island from 19:00 tonight
    • Apart from essential infrastructure personnel, no-one is permitted to arrive on the Island by sea. All goods and mail will continue to arrive.
    • POLICE WILL LEVY ON THE SPOT FINES AGAINST ANYONE DEEMED TO BE IGNORING THE SOCIAL DISTANCING PARAMETERS

    And I can't get to the range as it is now shut for the foreseeable future...!! Oh well, Keep Calm, Drink Tea.
    Happiness is like peeing your pants. Everyone can see it, but only you can feel the warmth.

    Very similar to the new restrictions passed by our City Commission. Access denied to all except residents, non-resident property owners, (quite restricted), and essential personnel.

    As property managers for a rental condominium complex we were required to cancel all reservations "for the foreseeable future", which we defined as the rest of March, April and May. It may go beyond that, or be lifted prior to- we'll have to wait and see...

    Meanwhile, we observe our social dispersion, wash our hands, try to not touch our face and hope for the best.

    I think part of the problem in Italy is that the people have gone to market every single day of their lives. Good luck to you folks in the British Isles, this too shall pass.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself.

    My wife and I ahve been self isolating simply because it makes sense to us. The only going out is to the grocery store and that is it. No point in going out when pretty much everything around us is closed for the foreseeable future.

    At least they are not closing all the businesses. The virus is bad enough on everybody's finances let alone if the authorities destroy the economy with careless decision making.

    I heard on tv news (it must be true) that your govt are making £3 trillion available to the population in this time of need. A friend of mine, less discerning than I am and certainly more cynical, suggested to me on Facebook that the amount would work out at about $1200 per person. His actual words were "that's an awful lot of guns about to be bought..".

    My bank sent me an email announcing that they are suspending all overdraft charges from today (Thursday) until the end of April.

    That can be arranged here now..!! Check this out (at the bottom)

    Today's Government update:

    634 tests have now been done 26 cases now. Now two in hospital - They were at home previously, the individuals currently have respiratory issues
    The Chief Minister Stressed that it is also affecting young people
    Review of yesterday’s update
    Borders closed for21 days, people can leave. All returns will be carefully assessed and very limited.
    Lockdowns around the world have created some issues, advice and support will be available.
    None essential shops will close tonight.
    Take away food will continue to be available
    Taxi advised separately on behaviour, some will continue to operate.
    Construction - From 1 minute to midnight tonight construction will end. A very limited time to make safe, emergency repairs will be possible.
    The key message is now go home if you can.
    A full presentation for construction workers will be made available by the Treasury Minister tomorrow, which will include reference to support.
    Social Distancing now appears to be taking place as a natural process. Also the care for others remains important.
    Chief Minister makes specific reference to the community response.
    The first on the spot fines will be issued soon if necessary, an update tomorrow.
    25000 additional masks on the way additional swobs have arrived enabling tests to be brought forward and to increase.
    Testing is there to break the chain. As is trade back, this process has enabled 144 contacts to be made and these people are now self isolating at home. Without trace back these people would still have been out there.
    The prison is now ready and has isolation areas.

    We had an island like that in the United States.
    It was called Alcatraz.
