South Yorkshire mayor has been in talks with government Friday and over the weekend. On Friday’s Question Time Dan Jarvis gave no indication on how the region would respond to the application of tier 3. ie follow Manchester or Liverpool. Either way it looks as though many of the major cities in the North will face the severe economic  consequences of the tier system. So much for Boris promise of levelling up

I think he meant levelling up to the same level as Hell, Hull and Halifax.

I reckon that Sheffield will be in tier 3 by the end of the week to coincide with our half term break?  We've also got Halloween & Bonfire Night coming up, so that also might reduce the numbers out & about on those two nights?

I see the police are to get access to some of the track and trace data to be able fine people who break isolation.

 

I guess that will solve the problem of people not being able to get tested as many people just won't bother now.

Why would you want to put people off from  using the track and trace system?

I don't want anyone to be told to isolate and not be able to work and be left with no money based on a pcr test.  Now the police are getting involved there's even more of a reason not to agree with track and trace.

It’s a stupid idea to involve the police, and we do need proper support for those required to isolate. However, we also need to track, trace and isolate, that’s how dangerous viral outbreaks are usually overcome .

Does anyone know if the places that require you to scan the QR code for the track and trace app allow you to leave details in a pen-and-paper way, or do they only allow people who have smartphones to enter the premises?

Everywhere that I’ve been has offered a choice of signing in, or using the app.

2 week half term coming up I guess...

 

And levelling down...

So much for the liar's election promises.
