Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The most effective way of keeping Covid out the office is to ensure that people displaying symptoms of it don't come in. 

Sanitising your hands on entry is a marginal gain at best. Weird if it's being insisted upon tbh. Certainly isn't in my office but it's there at the entry points if you want it. 

I'm actually the opposite from Inanimate Carbon Rod and prefer the sanitiser to the soap and water - a lot of the soaps used in public/communal toilets dry out my skin after repeated use, whereas hand sanitiser is usually fine.

Hand sanitiser is fine but can sting. Good old fashioned petroleum jelly is a far better lube imo.

I absolutely hate Sting.  I can't remember if it was John Peel or John Walters from Radio 1 years ago who once said the biggest regret about the Peel Sessions was that we asked The Police to do a session and didn't ask the Sex Pistols.

Back on topic, a woman at my work managed to set her hands on fire after putting on too much sanitiser gel after on leaving the locker room (just to be sure), went outside and lit a cigarette. So the company did a risk assessment and now every sanitiser station has a flammable sticker on it. Its typical that in life people only figure these things out after something goes wrong.

I generally dont have an issue with hand sanitiser, but that said, using it 10/12 times a day has been really bad for the skin on my hands/fingers. Ive found instead of using the sanitiser actually just nipping into the bathroom and using soap and water is better for my hands. 
Either is acceptable - in fact soap and water is better.

It's sad that there are still clatty b*****ds that need reminded.

Washing your hands and personal hygiene aren't restrictions.

They seem to be treated as such by some on here.  Otherwise discussion of vaccines etc would be redundant. 

It’s sad when you get so far down the rabbit hole you think being asked to clean your hands is an invasion of your privacy.

Now that Hand Sanitiser is only about 50p for a huge tub and 70 proof.

I am astonished the Jakies have not caught on yet it is  the cheapest route to getting bladdered.

No 50p a unit charge on this.

Who's complaining about cleaning hands?

Quick way to winning a Darwin award as they are finding out in America.

Maybe our Jakies have a bit more class?

Reading there about SAGE are left scratching their heads on why the case numbers are plummeting and why there are so few in hospital and so few have died. When you look back over the last few months with all the fear porn, scare stories, even some of the experts having no faith in the vaccines, how wrong they were. Maybe some are glad they were wrong, others will have staked their credibility on their contributions to mainstream media and social media and will now have to explain.

Could SAGE and other modellers have vastly underestimated how many people in the UK have been infected often with no or very mild symptoms and have the anti-bodies, add this to the vaccination rollout and quite clearly for the vast majority their immune systems are cigaring this delta variant.

So a simple request to sanitise your hands on entrance to your building and you are outraged ?  Hope your not in the health or food industry.

Do you ignore said protocols in hospitals etc ?

Because food handling areas and hospitals are exactly the same risk environment as an office. 

Another absolutely gormless contribution from yourself.

Email gone round at work about people not sanitizing their hands when they come into the building. Get fucked.

 

 

So where exactly does he say office ?

Another absolutely gormless contribution from yourself.

I can’t see the government briefing on BBC Scotland TV or radio channel. I thought I heard the reporter say at lunchtime on the news it was on the tv channel?

Move beyond level 0 on 9th August will be set out next Tuesday.

Various factors will come into it, some give optimism, others remind us to remain cautious.
