Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Can I just get a snapshot of info from you learned folks please? What are the current travel rules for Scotland? Am I right in thinking there's no need for test before re-entry but the Day 2 test still stands? If so, is it correct that this has to be done through the govt at a cost of 60 odd notes? Thanks in advance.
What you have said is correct for fully vaccinated from October 4th onwards coming from countries not on the red list.
The range of pcr test choice has expanded and it is really just to get yourself a reference number for your passenger locater form.
Therefore use the absolute cheapest as it does not matter if it does not turn up as it makes no difference to your trip.
Pcr to change to lateral flow for the English half term.

Dalkeith Miners basically telling the SNP to shove their vaccine passports. 

Didn't know that the Dalkeith Miners were like the Springfield Steel Workers tbh.

Guy in my work claiming it's now illegal to work in hospitals/care homes unless double vaxxed, we do a decent amount of contract work in these places and have a few engineers not vaccinated. Any truth to this? Reason I ask is the guy is an absolute slavering mess.

There’s the app for businesses using the app to scan folk’s vaccine status but not the actual vaccine status app.

 

Sorry, the one I thought was the app is actually a checker called NHS Scotland COVID Check. 

 

Edit: I've never had the NHS Scotland app or test and trace and I really don't want to get this one but if it means I get knocked backed from Pittodrie on Sunday, then I'll take the 'state surveillance'. It's not as if every major country and company haven't already got all my details already.

To quote Paul Weller.

Thought they were bringing that in in England but knocked it back in Scotland?  No idea what date it was supposed to start though.

It's a load of shite. A few private residential care companies are bringing it in but as far as I'm aware there are no plans for the NHS or local authority's to enforce it

Doesn't surprise me from this c**t, was claiming yesterday his pal was offering £54 an hour to joiners as they are in that high demand.

It's only just after 10am.

If it's not ready in reasonable time the test events should be delayed as the actual implementation was delayed. Otherwise they won't even be testing under similar enough conditions and they're just making it more likely that their test events will make their policy look unworkable.

Just got an email from AFC with this link.

Get a record of your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status | The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine (nhsinform.scot)

Not for the app though.

 

And if you request a paper copy it'll take 14 days to come. Pretty useful if you need tit for Sunday. 😆

Edit: AFC are actually asking you for a hard copy "to speed up the entry process". Also only carrying out spot checks. Hopefully only paying lip service to this pish.

BBC News - Covid in Scotland: Latest ICU patients 'largely unvaccinated and young'
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-58736720

Some strange claims in this BBC article. Their bar chart shows 3 x more unvaccinated over 60s being hospitalised as under 30s yet the Dr quoted (and hence the headline) is that most ICU patients are young and unvaccinated.

So in the unvaccinated cohort despite 3x more over 60s being admitted than under 30s, this article claims most folk who then end up in ICU out the unvaccinated cohort are "young". That makes no sense to me.

What's the vaccinated versus unvaccinated in intensive care? We're not telling you. 

Also George doesn't mention underlying conditions....

But apart from that very informative article from state media.

If you can't download a PDF you couldn't download the app. The paper version with the QR codes has been available for about a month.

No surprise unfortunately. Public Health can just about shit on everything and it'll pass. 

Unless you attempt to stop people going to church, of course. Then suddenly Public Health isn't important enough.
