The same could happen from a Play off team winning to get into the Championship. Fans are fans and all rules get broken unfortunately.
It’s a little all over the place back here but non-essential shops are opening from Monday and I’m led to believe that would include Barbers.
This effectively is the ‘New Norm’ as a way of life as the Pandemic could be stuck with us for longer than a year maybe even more.2nd August 2020 at 4:43 pm #139777Brian blueParticipant487 pts2nd August 2020 at 5:23 pm #139803AdlabParticipant306 pts
Nike 19. Whereabouts are you?2nd August 2020 at 5:30 pm #139808AdlabParticipant306 pts
Govt communication is so poor that idiots are seeming to ignore the fact that the virus is still here as bad as ever. Personally I would not have allowed pubs to open but politics would get in the way of that.
One thing I cant understand. How can cinemas be allowed to open but not theatres? They are virtually identical venues!12nd August 2020 at 6:13 pm #139835
Adlab, in the Leicestershire Region.2nd August 2020 at 6:19 pm #139837
Adlab @ 5:30, that’s been part of the problem as people don’t know whether they are coming or going. With that in mind though, the 2 Meter Rule itself has not changed nor mass gatherings so I don’t know why there’s ignorance coming from some quarters.
What’s been weird though is still not being able to visit relatives/extended family, yet, you can go to the Pub and be in a place full of complete strangers.2nd August 2020 at 8:30 pm #139914Brian blueParticipant487 pts
As a society,we all must put safety first…you should not need anybody let alone Govt to tell you that. We can only beat this thing with a disciplined approach and it does not take many idiots to kill us all off. I am just like anybody else, miss my family, grandchildren but there is a responsibility on each and everyone of us. Common sense was there before any rules and for those who have to be guided and still do not understand then stay in and stay safe. If we all do that we will beat it before a cure is found.6th August 2020 at 11:17 am #143121
Very disappointed to read Arsenal are planning to make 55 members of staff redundant…. even after players accepted a 12.5% pay decrease to safe guard non playing staff jobs ….may be good business reasons but it still looks and smells very bad to me
Ashamed of the club reading that news9th August 2020 at 8:32 am #145815
Hopefully the Covidiots that invaded our beaches, open spaces, pubs and streets due to the great weather will note that they are not immune from getting Corona virus with 50% of all the new cases in Preston being under 30 but I doubt it they will get even that!

Sadly 9er… the amount of unknowns about this virus still persist. What we know it attacks and kills people who are sick, or have immune systems compromised. It is also documented that recovered patients have respiratory conditions, scar tissue on lungs, still no taste or smell and even psychological issues, which again means they are weekend. Those who have recovered are at a weaker point than they were before the virus. Given people are not developing long term anti bodies, those who have had it are more likely to be affected by it more seriously the second time around, that includes young people. I think thats the thinking in the NHS9th August 2020 at 9:57 am #1458759th August 2020 at 11:23 am #145932
442, far too technical for me mate. 😊
But the rules are clear and tens of thousands of people aren’t following the rules as the news coverage demonstrates.
I’m not sure though that the recent spike in Preston is young people catching the virus again from what I’ve read about it it’s under 30’s going out on the town and not social distancing?9th August 2020 at 1:05 pm #145999442Participant71 pts
9’er.. basically, if you’ve had a serious case of it before and have been hospitalised, you are more likely to be susceptible to death the second time death comes knocking your door to collect.9th August 2020 at 1:14 pm #146006
Just back from a walk down my local park
Beautiful, 2 lakes. Loads of open space and trees and it was deserted!
Guess they are all down the beach 🙄🤣9th August 2020 at 1:36 pm #146022maverick1973Participant627 pts
Buffy-Its Sunday,they been drinking all night,probably.9th August 2020 at 1:43 pm #146027
Well it is Essex…🤣9th August 2020 at 2:31 pm #146063
442, I’m sure you’re right mate but that’s not what has driven 50% of the cases in Preston being in the under 30’s age category and there has seemingly been an attitude of “this pandemc only strikes the old or infirm” which is why we are seeing such a poor attitude to social distancing from the under 40’s all over the country and Preston confirms you can’t just lead your lives as if there’s nothing wrong because it does strike the under 30’s.

Personally, I don’t see the appeal in immersing into such large crowds that otherwise leave you exposed being so close in distance. All the advice given out is being ignored and clapping for the NHS on a Thursday Evening seems to be forgotten.
They still and always will have a lot to deal with and these people ignoring the guidelines are selfish.
To see it from their lens, I understand the unstable and unsettled life we’ve all had to endure and a routine that’s had change for all connected. Plus I understand it’s the summer, it’s humid and people want a bit of escapism from their daily struggles, but granted we’re in for a long haul with this. It’s not just going to disappear overnight and people out there need to accept and take responsibility.9th August 2020 at 2:47 pm #146076
I have experienced face to face individuals that have been furloughed expressing their joy being paid 80% whilst basically being able to live with more freedom.
There are many different circumstances and some involving people being forced out of work of have had to self isolate. Of course, health is paramount. Our livelihoods come with that to be able to survive and that involves the economy and able to find a way of recirculating it.
It’s ultimately going to be down to the Taxpayer to take ownership of the Bill whilst the current Government appear to be giving ‘handouts’.
