Shocker for anyone about to return / travel.. they are the lords of chaos indeed...YOU COULDN’T MAKE IT UP (Version 500+)
Chaotic UK government has instituted a mandatory 14 days isolation for those returning from Spain.
Dominic Rabb on “Sophy Ridge” programme said it was up to employers to treat their staff fairly if they couldn’t return to work and it was illegal for them to penalise they as a result of government regulation. He offered no form of payment to those affected such as “statutory sick pay”. There will be lots of small employer who simply cannot afford to pay staff wages. Another example of policy on the hoof.
When asked how this quarantine was to be policed he said it was the law and there were penalties for none compliance. He was relying on people to “do the right thing”.
There will be no testing for coronavirus at airports of those returning and therefore no Track or Tracing.
It seems to me that this isolation requirement is almost totally pointless if there is no enforcement or funding for those involved.
Just another example of the half-assed knee-jerk policies enacted by this bunch of clowns. (My apologies to professional clowns.)
