Are none essentiak shops going to close?

As I understand it it starts tonight. According to the government guidelines all shops including non essential can remain open.

Nothing has changed for me either - only go out for shopping these days - just had a few cans while doing housework and playing music.  Local supermarket and off-licence staying open, so I reckon I can survive.  No pubs and usual conversations, so mental health questionable, but then, it probably always was!

 

Broadband, TV, and the phone still work.  Neighbours handy if they need me or I need them, so that is covered as well.  The Government have not found a way to tax Oxygen yet, so we can all breath free and easy!

 

Yes, we are in a war, but ....  Keep smiling folks!

The following makes me puzzled.

"The FDA has moved forward with Remdesivir as the first -and the only-approved drug for treating Covid 19. "

 

It doesn't work.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/10/15/health/coronavirus-remdesivir-who.html?utm_source=nl&utm_brand=wired&utm_mailing=WIR_Science_102320&utm_

 

Is the  FDA content with backing a useless drug that is administered to patients ? Which side is the FDA on ,Big Pharma or the Public?

 

What progress is there being made in the direction of finding a standardised treatment for Cov-19 ? We need one -and quick.

 

It looks like whatever treatment Trump got, did in fact work.

Why not roll it out into the public domain?

 

I suppose the poor and huddled masses can creep off and die.

Whilst the powerful troll off into a healthy future.

 

When you're smiling.The whole world smiles with you.

After 3, join in the song.

Same here.  Nothing has changed for us.  Only change for me is that the bookies aren't open for a month so I can't put any bets on.  I don't have & don't want an online account, so I'll keep my money in my pocket for a month.

Does anybody know what the travel restrictions are now that Sheffield has come into tier 3. All that I can come up with is that the government says we should cut down ( not stop ) non essential travel and stay in the area. What is the area? I live in S6, does this mean I should just stay in S6,or does it mean I should stay in the Sheffield postcode area? If it is the latter that would mean I can travel as far as Hathersage but Castleton is just out of bounds. More clear as mud instructions from Doris.

Within the boundaries of Sheffield city council. But as Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster are all tier 3 it doesn't really matter if you went there.

 

Where do you want to go?
