Not verified but there is a screenshot of a letter doing the rounds that pubs will not be allowed to open until 1st Sept at the earliest

I got a whatsapp this morning saying something like bars were to open in June 01st, some doctor or something. I can't mind what the accompanying text was. Pinch of salt stuff. Does the rounds on whatsapp generally false.

They'll have to wait till Karen on facebook gives the OK

They wonít need Karen from Facebook to tell , mannions, Durcans, creatons In ballagh , all closed for good now with rumours of another two also thinking about folding .

This covid19 could quite possibly be the final nail in the coffin of rural towns in the west .

A short sharp kill rather than the long drawn out one that's been underway for the last 20 or more years? :-\

61 more deaths have been notified on the island of Ireland in the past day. The highest daily death toll so far.

Perhaps for many of the current businesses in the short term but if working from home becomes mainstream in the medium term, it opens up the possibility of moving out of the cities for lots of people which could help reinvigorate rural areas to some extent

Another 43 in the 26 counties and 18 in hospital in the North (and likely several more not counted). This could be worse, but is still very significant. They really failed in the nursing homes.

They'll need a lot more fibre optic draped on poles to ensure good broadband.

If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Be potential for public order issues the day of the reopening. Men with drink in them from late morning.

Could try a 7pm opening the first night, close at 11pm, to let the steam off.

Number of deaths continues to drop in NY, down to 600, lowest in 10 days but still a huge number

NYC deaths in last 24hrs is 438
The normal death rate per day in New York City is under 200

So covid deaths are more than twice as much as all other deaths put together.

I think the solution for overcrowding is to only allow men into shops for the first week and likewise only allow women into pubs for the first week.

And that is only the ones they count.

Would lads not have enough drink in them this past month? Drinking in the house on a regular basis.  Offies flat out by all appearances.

I haven't been on here in a while but would like some advice if someone could be so kind.

A friend of mine works in Belfast but has been working from home at her parents in Fermanagh.

Today she received word that as of next week she has to return to the office and start working from there again. They are staggering workers back to the office.

She has very bad asthma and suffers with anxiety.

Can they enforce this given the UK governments stance of if you can work from home you must?

She does not feel comfortable with this plan whatsoever!

If she can do her work from home then she should continue to work from him.
But if, for example, she worked in manufacturing then her employer could make her go into work.
According to government guidance manufacturing should still be continuing in the UK, where social distance should be maintained as much as possible, but if it can't be then other precautions should be put in place.  These instructions are here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/social-distancing-in-the-workplace-during-coronavirus-covid-19-sector-guidance#manufacturing-and-processing-businesses

Once those companies are named and shamed on Social Media they might back down, but I thought the call from the government was work from home if you can... Strange one

If companies are working within the guidance (see my previous post) then why would they be named and shamed.  Keeping businesses closed for a long time is only going to jeopardise those businesses remaining viable.  Not sure why anyone would like that to happen.
