    It Is Enough to Put You Off Flying

    Where are Scotland tracing figures that show household transmission are the major transmission route?

    Neither do I

    At the FM briefing today, the question was asked why were pubs not closed?? Answer - that is not where the issue lies - it is household based and not necessarily large parties either.

    The maximum permitted in a household is 8 - 2 families of 4 all socially distancing the required 6 feet and no hugging?? I have suspicions that a few families I know don't follow that guidance.

    He definitively stated that the uptick in cases is not all down to the 'ravers' (his word) but the Track and Trace data suggested it was households coming together for a 'cup of tea' who were obviously not following the 2 metre rule.

    Why do I think It’s Ludicrous? because once people have a few drinks everything goes out the window, compelled or not. They’ll forget to social distance and start shaking hands or give cuddles.

    the only other people we’ve had in our house several times since lockdown are my 2 daughters. My SIL and grandsons have visited twice and that was when the weather was good and we all sat in the back garden.

    Anyone with Alzheimer’s, dementia, severe LD living at home or in a nursing home will of course find it difficult to social distance and of course toddlers.

    You are compelled to socially distance in bars, restaurants but I bet very few follow the 2 metre guideline between households in their own home.

    Lack of social distancing and the virus jumps between households.

    PS The people who will find this very difficult are those in care homes and hospitals.

    Our 2 daughters live in Lanarkshire so can visit each other but they cannot visit us as we’re in Glasgow. Hubby will be allowed to sit close and personal with his pupils from different households in the car but he cannot visit his mum!

    It's OK the grandstanding against non compliance, but what are the penalties?
    A slap on the wrist and ''don't do it again'' means nothing.
    Their penalty should be more than a slap in the wrist especially if they are tested and are positive.

    Hi all
    Hot of the press..........
    ‘Nicola Sturgeon has announced a ban on household gatherings in three local authorities in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area for the next two weeks after a surge in coronavirus cases.

    Scotland’s first minister said the localised restrictions, which come into force at midnight tonight and will affect an estimated 800,ooo people, apply to those living in West Dunbartonshire, Glasgow and East Renfrewshire, where infection rates have risen in recent days.

    Those resident in these three areas should not host people in their homes or visit someone else’s home, regardless of where they live.’

    Anyone affected?

    We have been walking to our local airfield to watch the light aircraft coming and going. There is a lovely little cafe with home cooked food and outdoor seating.

    Our friends have been laughing at us!

    I wont be going to an airport any time soon.
