Government should be setting up temporary detention centres for morons like this where they're kept in cages for the duration of the lockdown.

I think the police should be given the powers to give such people a good shoe-ing to the bollards as well as a fine.

Having a curve slightly below Italy counts for little when it's all going the same way.

As a result I have had to temporarily stop seeing my mum in hospital.

My sister had it confirmed we can visit.

A update, we maintain C-130 parts, the US DoD and Lockheed Martin would like us to remain open as far as it is possible. The RAF said we are a key organisation and it is envisaged that the RAF C-130s will be key in the assist to combat Covid-19.

If we are ill we will get a full wage, if we have to self isolate because a member of the house is showing symptoms you will only get £94 per week

Well, you’ll have to be "ill", then...

https://digital.nhs.uk/news-and-even...solation-notes

Quote:
People unable to work for more than seven days because of coronavirus (COVID-19) can obtain an isolation note through a new online service.
Isolation notes will provide employees with evidence for their employers that they have been advised to self-isolate due to coronavirus, either because they have symptoms or they live with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work.

As isolation notes can be obtained without contacting a doctor, this will reduce the pressure on GP surgeries and prevent people needing to leave their homes.

For the first seven days off work, employees can self-certify so they don’t need any evidence for their employer. After that, employers may ask for evidence of sickness absence. Where this is related to having symptoms of coronavirus or living with someone who has symptoms, the isolation note can be used to provide evidence of the advice to self-isolate.
