Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Having had to use my passport on Tuesday afternoon during a visit to Celtic park I got my app ready on route and opened up the second dose QR code expecting them to scan it, got near the gates and the wife just took a quick look at the home page of the app and no other questions asked.

I've been double vaccinated as has the missus, we've both tested positive last week and had this confirmed by the NHS PCR tests that were sent out.

If we'd had to go somewhere and show a passport in the day leading up to the test when we'd have likely already caught it I don't see how it would have made a difference. We would have been let in anyway.

It's fucking grim by the way.

Off to Sunderland for a family doo this weekend. Got tickets for Sunderland v Charlton on Saturday and have the app up and running just in case. Got Belfast next weekend so will 100% need it there, this might be a good trial.
Hopefully I don't return from England like another poster did in such a blind rage that I feel compelled to post that I want the NHS immediately privatised !!!

You 100% will not need the app for the stadium of light or anywhere in the North East of England. You will hear the odd announcement about wearing masks and distancing in shops but no one bothers.

I went to the Sunderland v Newcastle under 23s game there on Monday night.  Neither team would sell me a ticket as it was category A game but a steward spotted me asking anyone if they had spares 3 minutes before kick off and said "are you a season ticket holder? to which i said no and he said "yes you are" and let me in for free. 

I was based in Newcastle and it felt odd checking into the room with no mask and the same going out and about but apart from seeing people getting off buses, masks are non existent.

Whilst I get Deepti Gurdasani's point RE: multi-layered approaches, it is still perfectly valid to question which layers actually work, and which layers are ineffective.

If experts wish to argue that masks are an effective layer, then (quite drastic) anomalies like Scotland & Wales require much deeper analysis and explanation than "they work, right."

If it is the case that masks only make a real difference if they are a "high grade" (whatever that means), and anything else is largely pointless then, if we are to continue to insist on mask wearing, we should ban the use of cheap fabric masks etc immediately.

I've not heard a single person (including Clownshoes or NS) advise against cheap pishy masks.

Yep - look at Raghib's tweets. Especially number 5 of the thread - utterly senseless. As pointed out in some replies.

I liked that John Burns Twitter guy linking to a study about two villages in Bangladesh and ignoring the mass experiment involving 60 million people in the UK.

The scientific equivalent of shagging a bird at your gran's bit.

Positive test, my imagination can really run riot now.

Hope it's not too bad.... You'll be able to glow in the love and respect of the P&B cognoscenti who can always be relied upon to express sympathy and support.

Full Steak Pie meal or just a few Sausage Rolls? Just so I know whether to take the day off or not

Quite a few folk on here and ones I know in real life have covid at the moment and are double vaccinated. Just shows what a mockery it makes of the covid passport system when these people could go to an event but an unvaccinated covid free person couldnt. The world is fucked...especially Australia

Only an uber c**t would go to any event knowing they had Covid so it's not much of an argument. That goes for a vaccinated or unvaccinated being. Not sure how many times you need to be reminded that the motivation is not an attempt to stop infected people attending events as you constantly keep thinking it is.
