The vast majority of people are enjoying going to pubs, restaurants, the theatre, cinema etc and generally getting on with life rather than spending tens of hours a week researching, reading and posting about Covid.

Have you got a better suggestion of what to do with your time while you're working?

We booked Portugal for beginning of October back in March, as far as I'm aware we haven't booked tests, I'll have to do some further investigations!!!

Looks like you won't need a test before flying out there if you're double jagged, not confirmed yet though.

You were promising us a statement from SG regarding returning testing rules by today.

Are you confident it’s coming ?

Just repeated what the FM said a couple of days ago, in the next couple of days, so hopefully today. Parliament's closed today though, so it might be later if it has to be announced to the MSPs first.

These countries with no Domestic (Still entry restrictions) legal coronavirus restrictions like Denmark.

I just double checked and apparently if you catch Covid in Denmark you still need to go into self isolation for a certain number of days.

Is that not a legal coronavirus restriction ?

 

Marshy does not agree !!  suprise suprise

Can’t see any reason it would need to be announced to MSPs first.
 

Hopefully she is good for her word and we get it today.

It's the same as any other highly infectious disease.

Affordable supermarket lateral flow tests could be introduced for travellers returning to the UK, transport secretary Grant Shapps has said.

SHAPPS HINTS SUPERMARKETS COULD SELL DAY 2 LATERAL FLOW TESTS

24 SEP 2021 BY WILL PAYNE

Affordable supermarket lateral flow tests could be introduced for travellers returning to the UK, transport secretary Grant Shapps has said.

Shapps said he was "still hopeful" the testing overhaul would be implemented in time for October half-term

Speaking to Sky News, Shapps highlighted how a selection of Lidl stores across the Republic of Ireland have recently put packs of five lateral flow tests on sale for around £20 each.

The government plans to replace the current Day 2 PCR test requirement with a lateral flow test next month, although no date has yet been set.

"I look forward to the expansion of lateral flow tests, perhaps into supermarkets and elsewhere, as we get on to the point where people can buy those for returning from holiday," said Shapps.

But, when asked if a supermarket test should be accepted rather than a more formal means of testing, the transport secretary said it will be up to the Department of Health to decide the new testing rules.

"With PCR tests, you didn’t have to be supervised, you had to get that test in advance, you had to record the fact that you’ve ordered it, but you were then trusted to get on and do it," Shapps continued.

"Obviously the Department of Health will put some guidance in place as to how they want this to operate and they’re still working on that so I won’t tread on their toes, but I have every confidence this system will be up and running in good time."

Shapps added he was "still hopeful" the testing changes would be implemented in time for October half-term.

"We’re working on the detail for this, and the private market is still having to respond to that shift to using lateral flows and of course they’ll need hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of them available," he said. "There’s a big task ahead, but I know my colleagues are working hard on that."

Scotland is too much of a diddy to have a seat at the adults table. 😢

 

But you can't leave your house in any of these countries if you have the Rona.

No freedom in that surely ?
