From the BBC Website

 

The idea is for Covid marshals to advise and support members of the public and businesses on following social distancing rules.

They cannot enforce the rules, but it is hoped they will take some pressure off police and council officers, who do have powers.

or put another way.  no powers at all.  zero.  ziltch. nada.

 

and a smack in the nose for their trouble.

So rumour has it Sheffield is now tier 2 unless of course it isn't but numbers are going up it could be tier 3. Or 1.

 

More information as it comes in from her majesty's government.

Well, according to my test and trace app, S8 is Medium  - which is tier 1 🤷‍♂️

if you were to read the government's website on who is exempt from wearing a mask. You would see that simply deciding that you feel unable to wear one as it would cause you severe distress is enough.  No evidence needed, just your opinion.

 

This is a direct quote.  Notice the last sentence which I have highlighted.

Quote

 

Exemption cards

Those who have an age, health or disability reason for not wearing a face covering should not be routinely asked to give any written evidence of this, this includes exemption cards. No person needs to seek advice or request a letter from a medical professional about their reason for not wearing a face covering.

 

 

 

So its very easy to 100% follow the rules,  while not wearing the masks!    Just wake up and decide that being a sheep is not for you.

Currently it is 1, as it was prior to 3:30.  I thought Dan Jarvis was still "negotiating".  We may not even hear until Wednesday.

Seems a tad too easy to understand for my liking.

 

I think the system warrants breaking down further, such as tiers 1a, 1b if you're near a park and fresher air for example, or 1c if a council official happens to live nearby.

If an area straddles a postcode or council voting area, we could have 1a1, or 2a3 for instance.

Then there's the case where one side of a road might 'qualify' for a 1, but the other side a 2...or 3. Or be under a totally different region. Or not.

Perhaps there's a pub that serves meals....or is that a restaurant....but it might be a gastro...erm...pub. They'd obviously be allowed to open from 1am to about 5am, but not to serve food. Or drink.

 

I think it's a lost opportunity to confuse, divide and conquer, and shows that the government are not in complete control of the situation. Or might be. There'll probably be a Cobra meeting called to decide that. Perhaps tomorrow. But possibly not.

Wetherspoons gets to stay open because it serves food apparently.

and how many of those are dead?

i was once admitted to hospital with tonsilitus.   i was in a packed ward of other kids with the same
none of us died.

admissions are like cases.      not deaths. 

I never mentioned deaths? 
 

I was responding to a post about admissions.
