Not an SNP stan just a fan of reading things instead of getting into hysterics about the half truths and opinions bandied about on here.

If you live in S.Lan and work as a nurse/ teacher in Glasgow you can send your kids to a grandparents in S.Lan or Glasgow.

This is the case regardless of the tier of either of those LAs

What if you work in a coffee shop in Glasgow but live in Lanarkshire?

Huge numbers of people work in non key worker jobs outside their LA.

Banning household meeting initially even in Level 1
She had started out by equating Scottish level 1 to English level 1. That should translate as plenty authorities in level 1 same as England. This then trumps that ffs

Very good from Willie Rennie there

Rennie, Leonard and the Tank Commander all confirmed their party will support the bill though !

Hardly surprising, but it's interesting to note that there is finally some focus on asking the SG what the long term goal / exit strategy is, and an acknowledgement that Level 0 is still rather restrictive.

He also made an excellent point that businesses that have adapted to be "covid secure" are being allowed to trade, apart from hospitality business, whos efforts and expenditure in implementing the guidelines are being overlooked at every opportunity.

Then your work won't be open in Tier 4. Got any harder ones?

But Glasgow is in Tier 3, and their work would be open.

Try again reversing the direction of travel and with supermarket instead of coffee shop?

Glasgow isn't going to be in Tier 4.

No single measure to determine moving between the tiers, a "basket" of measures therefore you can fully expect that criteria not to be put into the public domain. This sounds utterly shambolic.

The criteria itself is in the document: https://www.gov.scot/binaries/content/documents/govscot/publications/factsheet/2020/10/coronavirus-covid-19-protection-levels-updated-draft-27-october-2020/documents/indicators-paper/indicators-paper/govscot%3Adocument/Indicators%2Bpaper%2B26%2BOct%2B1645.pdf

Parts 39 through 41.

Not sure all the info required by the criteria will be available publicly though.

Up here the midges are the apex predator and it was a good year for them. Given that the foreigners that come up here from the central belt also bring their alcohol, it makes for a feeding frenzy as the midges become addicted to alcoholic blood.

The blood drinkers must be satisfied.

NS reiterated that level zero is akin to where we were July and August and not where we would be with a fully rolled out working vaccine.
We will not be at the tier zero situation by the time the vaccine is rolled out so I suspect tier zero bleating will be moot.

So 5 key triggers but 3 of the 5 based on predictions and projections which are based on health board stats despite this scheme being LA based.
You can guarantee 1 of the 5 being met will put you up but it will require 3/4/5 to put you down !

Pretty much, aye.

I said at the time a 2 week circuit breaker wasn't going to be long enough to bring cases down. They may have been better legislating for a blanket 1 month to 6 weeks "circuit breaker" in the central belt in one go. Pretty much where we are gonna end up anyway, a lot less complex as well.

I think being on the border of North Lanarkshire is going to keep forth valley in level 3 for a while despite the numbers.
Fucking weedgies.

Nobody in Lanarkshire is going to traipse through to falkirk to go for a pint in the pub,
Nobody

I like this but it needs to be updated and published weekly at the minimum.

 

Edinburgh is punted into Tier 3 seemingly based purely on the test positivity rate. Other indicators are 2 (cases in population) and 0’s for all the projections. The same recommendation as East Ayrshire, which has 3-3-3-4-1. That’s complete madness by anyone’s reckoning, surely?

Problem is it looks likely Falkirk will be Tier 3 so pubs shut there too.

Pubs are basically shut until tier 1 anyway, are they not. 

Tier 2 is a drink with your meal only.

From the Guardian -

 

3h ago 13:50

Sweden registered 1,870 new coronavirus

Sweden registered 1,870 new coronavirus cases on 23 October, the highest since the start of the pandemic, Reuters reports.

The increase compares with a high of 1,698 daily cases recorded in late June. The country’s health agency has said the peak during the spring was probably much higher but not recorded due to lack of testing.

Sweden’s official death toll decreased with 15 cases since Friday, taking the total to 5,918 deaths. Reuters notes that while no explanation was given for the decrease but the death count has previously been changed after the actual cause of death has been determined.

I thought that was pretty obvious but obviously not.

You’re allowed drink outside in Tier 2? Not ideal in Scotland in November I’ll admit but a crisp day, beer garden and a patio heater. I’d take that.
