  1. Currently sitting under this with a Ricard.
  2. If it means between the actual square, rectangular or round tables it makes no sense. We should see the details of the décret this weekend.
  3. Didn't pick up yet whether 1m social distancing rule still applies generally? Cinemas? Restos etc 1m between tables which I guess means between the people at adjacent tables?
  4. The expected topics include, as above, the 100 km limit and restaurants, cafés and bars. Whether the 100 km is replaced by a wider, but still limited restriction will be known later, we hope. What exactly is announced for the restos etc will please some and anger others no doubt.
  5. Just for additional info on French government position. Reciprocal quarantine will be applied to any country which puts such a policy in place for arrivals from France. Spain is currently in this situation from Monday 25th May.
  6. Please forgive me using the word, but it is a pity that political reasons are taking priority over sensible public health ones, and threatening a longer period of inactivity for BF and their ships. I suspect some back channels will open?
  7. She made it almost entirely from wool from Shetland breed sheep.
  8. A sheep my wife made earlier, doing a round Britain cruise with the most Malouin Russian couple on their charter yacht, last year. Thank heavens the money has been found to build a new research centre after the last one burnt down. A major resource for understanding nature, birds in particular. A smashing place to visit if you ever get the chance.
  9. The latest from the French government is that if indeed the UK apply quarantine to all arrivals from France, they are ready to apply a reciprocal measure.
  10. Auntie again. What about France exemption? Asked why there's no longer a quarantine exemption for people coming to the UK from France, Priti Patel says there are "limited" ones, details of which will be published later.
  11. Quoting Auntie : So what will be required of people going into self-isolation? People will be expected to travel by car, where possible, and not use public transport They should not leave their residence for 14 days They should not go to work, school or visit public areas They should not have friends or family to stay or visit, except to provide essential support They should not go out to shop where they can rely on others. They will be encouraged to download the NHS Covid-19 app at the border Sort of messes things for those hoping to escape, and thinking they can promise to behave when they come back. One thing PP is good at is threatening ...
  12. Well, she who must be obeyed has just said 14 day quarantine from 8th June. Exemptions for CI, IOM, Ireland, with fines for refusing to fill in the "contact" form and heavy fine for breaking quarantine. Fines in England only, other nations to decide on that aspect for themselves. Are BF really going to open much from 15th? One route taking passengers, acting as a trial perhaps?
  13. I think this will depend on reciprocity. Not much good if France and Spain are open, but everyone arriving in UK is subject to 14 days quarantine. I have an itch that says the reason they say they will review UK quarantine, is to coordinate with a potential 15th June date, yet to be agreed, with all 3 countries mentioned.
  14. Without reopening all the other aspects of the effectiveness of masks, I ask myself whether I would rather someone, physically close to me, perhaps even in a confined space who coughed or sneezed, was wearing a mask or not?
