Return to work? 8th June? 29th June? 20th July?
« on: May 01, 2020, 08:05:04 pm »
At a glance: What restrictions are going to be lifted and when? (RTE)

Phase One makes no mention of anything 'indoors'.

Quote
Phase Two (8 June)
Up to four people will be allowed visit other households for a "short period" while maintaining social distancing

Quote
Phase Three (29 June)
Phase in the opening of all other non-essential retail outlets on basis of restriction on the number of staff and customers per square metre so that social distancing can be maintained

Quote
Phase Four (20 July)
Commence loosening restrictions on higher-risk services like hairdressers and barbers that involve direct physical contact for periods of time between people and for which there is a population-wide demand.

We work in a small enclosed metal box.  I'm interested in the number of staff/customers per sq.meter idea (29 June).  Would that apply to us?  As I mentioned in another thread, it's approx 60cm & 90cm from me to my front seat and rear seat passenger, respectively.  And my taxi is 1.5 meters wide on the outside.

After the 12 weeks, then the sharking and pillaging will begin.

He was ill prepared for the Late Late - actually had to fumble through his pockets to find the one page summary in words of less than 3 syllables that the civil servants had produced in pretty colours. To be fair, I guess it was Tubridy so he was probably expecting to discuss how his sourdough starter is going and how good his boyfriend's fairy cakes taste.

However, he made a couple of interesting (what we can only describe as) observations in noting that the payments can't continue for much longer at their current level before suggesting that they will probably have to be extended in respect of workers who aren't permitted to return to work. That last bit may well exclude us as we are, as essential workers, allowed to work. Might be a good time for older drivers to get in touch with Age Action and/or Vinny Kearns.

The grand doesn't interest me but it's there for those who want to work full-time. It was Vinny who got us the €350 (well, €203 back then) so I'm hoping his advocacy will keep me on that for a while.

My guess it will be reviewed every 4 weeks so we may get the first 4 --they will knock of the wage support earlier --workforce will claim health and safety risks if they can so they can stay home and enjoy the summer on full pay !

If one followed the advice in that graphic, we won't be going back until the end of June?
