Boris to discuss easing lockdown as he returns to No 10

Guidance on coronavirus and a place to share concerns and support
we got a text from dr surgery saying ..

i hope you are well . i have received notification that you completed the goverment self referral form to be added to the shielding list for patients at very high rish of complications of covid 19 infection .i have reviewed your medical records and i think you are at moderatley higher risk .but you are not in the very highest risk group . this means you should adopt enchanced social distancing measures. although shielding for 12 weeks is an option you might choose . it is not mandatory for you . call to discuss

all though we have got copd , asthma , broncoextitis , sleep apena , keep getting infections , we have been in isolation since 15 th march with no or very little contact from the outside world not even from mental health all though contacting them all the time ..
Denis,

Please don't take my earlier response as an attack on your views as was not my intention and I sincerely apologise if it was taken as such. You absolutely should be able to express your opinion without feeling judged, that was the whole point I was scratching at, we don't do that here and I am sorry.

I appreciate all perspectives/opinions on subject matter because it allows you to think outside of the box and not completely tunnel vision, honestly I would be far more worried if we were all saying the exact same thing. I enjoy being able to converse on something because it keeps you sharp.. more importantly it keeps you open minded, which I strongly feel is something we as a society have lost. I cringe when I see public figures (or anyone) shouting the other side down.

This situation just stinks, helping people out is in my bones, its how I was dragged up.. it is frustration beyond words to see so many people having a difficult time and not being able to do anything for them. Sometimes that frustration creeps through.

I hope you are able to get out with wife after the weekend but please do take care (same for everyone else)

Neck deep in it this week unfortunately, just wanted to clear that up.

Best wishes

It is right that this forum has moderators who will weed out inappropriate comments, e.g. comments that may be perceived as hurtful or insulting, or salespeople masquerading as carers, trying to peddle insalubrious products.
Providing that everyone respects each other's point of view, keeps on topic and abides by our Community Guidelines then we Moderators will not intervene - we will only intervene when/if topics start to get nasty to the point of name calling (oh yes, we've had that in the past :( ) or making comments that could be construed as libellous.
The lockdown continues here in Wales for a further 3 weeks as Mark Drakeford announces some very minor changes for those not in the shielded group. From Monday exercise will be allowed for more than once a day as long as it is taken close to home, garden centres will allowed to reopen as long as they can stick to social distancing guidelines and local councils are being asked to look at how they can reopen local libraries and recycling centres. Those in the shielded group are still being asked to follow the guidelines they were sent in the recent letter from the Welsh CMO.
Strange . . . There were two conversations with exactly the same title, but now they seem to have coalesced. I hope readers do not find the interspersing of the posts too confusing.

I merged them into one as I thought it could confuse people if they were getting two lots of notifications with the same title (it certainly confused me :roll: :roll: :roll: ) especially if they replied on one conversation and then couldn't find their post !
Think there's a lot of confused members of the public right now.

Am really surprised by the announcement Boris made on sunday about some people returning to work etc.The language of the goverment since lockdown has been so cautious and they have been quite cagey about their plans for the future and the announcement seems at odds with all that.I don't think they should have changed the slogan yet.I agree with Nicola Sturgeon on that.The whole thing about being able to drive as far as you want for excercise too..Some regions of the country have lower infection rates and obviously if you have people driving in from different areas then that could cause issues.Why not ease the lockdown region by region depending on each situation?I figured that's what they'd do
The government wants us to get out there and start working again. Expect some outbreaks.

Who only knows how the London Tube , train and buses will be. What did happen to the notion of reducing separation distance from 2 meters down to 1?

I too have reservations about about driving as far as you like and am surprised that this restriction has been relaxed.

So, let's see! A family decides to drive to the Lake District to take exercise - do some hill-walking maybe. They are not going to be able to avoid social interaction are they! For a start, if they are are going to be absent from home for several hours, maybe overnight or more, they are going to need to draw on various services. They will need refreshments, use of toilets, etc.

And what if lot's of others have the same idea? Can you see where we are going?

My advice to readers is don't think of long journeys just yet.
Basically

The government needs to get some money coming back in fast...

They are missing all that stamp duty

We are not going to drive anywhere that's not local.

Still the same applies if you break down..you need to be rescued.

Or if you have a car accident could end up in hospital.

No thanks.

We are staying put.

One close walk a day and thats it.

Second wave on the way, unfortunately.
