I went through a village once that had an old red style phonebox repurposed into a mini library.

Thats quite common. the other is to house a defibrillator.

@Mississippi Bullfrog Where my Wife works in the midwifery unit ( She's in parent education nowadays rather than deliveries) they wouldn't have to isolate if one of the team caught it as they are always wearing ppe and stay a metre apart at all times. I wonder if its the same for your Wifes friend? :scratch:

In a school, no. No PPE, and the kids don't social distance. So those who have been in close contact with the person who tested positive are in close contact with everyone else.

A friend of my wife works in a different school. One of their team has tested positive. The rest of them are being required to work. Surely if one of the team has got it they should all self isolate? 

according to the government guidance .. Yes they should!

Any direct contact with a Covid positive person should provoke isolation. This is why schools should be creating ‘bubble’ of people so that things can function with small group isolations occurring. 
the contact needs to be direct so those two people in contact with each other without PPE.

Type motorbike into the search and itll bring up at least 30 mins of entertainment 😆

 

Tuned in my noo Humax freeview player a couple of weeks ago, it amalgamates the recommended viewing from all the channels you subscribe to or watch. It recommended  The motorbike show, fight club, breaking bad, one flew over the cuckoos nest and  indianna jones! 


Hope your procedure is minor and your recovery fast.

You’ll be dandy, fortunately the days of jumbo sized tubes are behind us.. behind us... 😂 I crack me up 😆 

On the up your bum stuff I’d suggest you get some super soft flushable wipes (kandoo used to be the brand of choice), some for home and take a few with you. 

‘The Great’ on channel 4 shows some promise for a laugh or two.
One and a half stone ay, well that sounds like new bike gear territory to me! 😆

Figures today are stark. 1500 plus deaths, daily infection rate 47k

does anyone know what the daily new infect rate was three weeks ago? 23rd dec ish? Average deaths over a thousand a day over past seven. Peak expected in about three weeks, my sources (sake as everyone else’s) suggest the acceleration in infections is slowing.

I did not know that. I was just starting to allow myself hope for the future. For the past 10 months I have been thinking we need to develop a long term way of living with pandemic life. Maybe I was right.

universal income, half working weeks, no group entertainments in person, no pubs, no theatres. More remote working. We may have to decide do we as a society value family contact more or less than work contact.

I think that presented to me for the second time in my life over the next month.  Not certain I want another inforced career change due to X-wife.

 

Presently being held responsible for 3 households self isolating...

 

Mine the x-wife's and her parents (not certain legally how they can blame me for her parents in lockdown).

@MarkW am I right in thinking the more infections the greater chance of mutation? 

I was wondering with the mutations on this scale if killing off the weaker variants just leaves us with the stronger ones, it's not an advantage for the virus to be overly deadly but Its not got the memo and as far as it's concerned there are plenty of us to go round.
