The primary school kids are kept apart in "bubbles" who don't mix. Staggered lunch times and play times etc.

The reasoning for that is exactly what has happened there, closing down one classroom instead of an entire school.

If the neighbour's kid had any symptoms then his sister's class would be brought in to the conversation.

Yeah I have two primary school age children so know how it works.

Still think its fucking stupid.

In my daughters Primary School she is in a class bubble. Except for other lessons of English, Maths and science, where the classes are mixed due to which level they are at. And lunch time, where it is staggered, but not enough to the point where she has often been sat on the same table, less then 2m apart, with kids from other year groups.

But she is still in a bubble though 😒

Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

I'll eventually work through all the messages but I'm safe. Thanks folks. I'm still an absolute mess but safe all the same.

I'm an NHS employee so I am to able access the vaccine now. I say that but the line for booking has been down since Friday morning and we've been told not to phone again until this Friday.

I'm not massively concerned about a slight delay but it did make me chuckle when they communicated that they had been caught out by the number of staff phoning up. I mean did they think people would wait a couple months to book. 

Telephone line for booking...what is this 1998? Seems horribly inefficient.

Question because I'm unsure. When the initial those who have underlying health conditions are at higher risk information came out in March, Autisic Spectrum was included in that list. Does this mean with my Aspergers I'm more likely to be vaccinated in the 6th wave wit other 16-64 or will I still be classified in the age bracket I'm in? 

 

I've got another job interview tomorrow at a school, so it's mass preparation for travel and making sure I don't come into contact with too many people, which itself may be difficult as if I remember correctly Cheltenhams train station is narrow and tiny. But a little stability work wise for January onwards would do wonders for my anxiety levels for sure. 

Good luck with the interview. 

Cheltenham station isnt narrow per se but the roof makes it seem smaller and more, cramped than it is. Amazing what being lit correctly does mind.

Welcome to the NHS. Reactive rather than proactive.

Have had to cancel my interview. I've been laid up since Sunday night with just zero energy, migraines, dizzyness and just in pain whenever I move. Stupidly went to work Monday morning and did 5 hours of lifting stock as well which hasn't helped how bad I feel. 

Teaching is now on hold again for another 4 months as I can't risk losing this job by trying to get days doing substitute work, schools won't be employing now until April term either. 

I'm just gonna watch cartoons all day once I sleep off this sadness. Everything in my watch list is depressing as fuck so I won't be going near that today.

At worst its just a flu bug, it'll be fine. I'm not about to stress myself further thinking it's something worse, I know lugging stock around for 7 hours a day isn't helping my aching or exhaustion and one of the other guys has been off with simple flu so I expect I've caught the headaches and nausea from him.

That isn't true though is it. The bubbles are mixing right now in my neighbours house. Lots of people have more than one kid at the same school in different classes. They are not going to remain in their bubbles at home, it is not possible.

Lots of people also have kids in different schools (one in primary, one in secondary), so if one sibling tests positive do they shut both entire schools?

If reopening schools is to be feasible at all (and some would still argue it isn't), then you have to draw a line somewhere between levels of risk that warrant sending every single child back home. Making the households and classmates of infected kids isolate is one level; extending that to the classmates and presumably co-workers of those other household members (who only might be infected) is a level further, at which point why stop there? If those co-workers are at risk then so are their families and all their co-workers and classmates, so that's half the town shut down.

I don't know the right answer exactly, I just think it's more complicated than comments so far reflect.

JUST TAKE THE FUCKING VACCINE

😃Damn it, it just occurred to me today to sign in here out of the blue and post "JUST TAKE THE FUCKING VACCINE YOU PEASANTS" and then saw I had a notification that you'd already done it. Well played, sir.

BASTARD! That would’ve made the whole pandemic, lockdown and everything all worthwhile. And I went and ruined it!

My nan has passed away, covid has taken her, devestated

I'm very upset, not really hit me yet

Trying to not be too upset visibly for my mums benefit

Never dealt with such a close loss before, any tips greatly appreciated 

She was 90. I have To go to her house soon so I will once again turn back the clock and enjoy her biscuits she would laugh and smile knowing I am, if it was up to her I'd be morbidly obese! 

She was one of those nan's who fed you at least every hour,,! 

I feel a bit better having typed that last bit

Sorry to hear mate. Thoughts with you
