Unless you enjoy the drama too?
Just felt like throwing in a stupid pun.....!
With his vaccination now obtained he can return to his normal life again..?

Below 100 cases per 100,000 for the first time in months. Dublin commuter belt and Donegal are almost at the point they should be isolated for the rest of our good

Yesterday on the I am Waterford facebook group a well known busker in town posted she has being threatened by the council with a big fine unless she ceases busking Immediately.

Later on in the thread two sinn fein councillors posted that they sought clarity on the issue from the council and were told its in relation to the current lockdown restrictions.

I strongly disagree with the council on this' some days when Im out for a walk and passing through the town centre I quite like seeing busking during these difficult times its a way to brighten up some peoples day and take our minds off things.

Disgraceful carry on by the council, its doing no harm

Sure there's a cafe who have people sitting outside on tables and nothing is been said to them

These restrictions are getting ridiculous

Feels a bit off key, outdoor blowing a gale (as it alwsys does there) not likely to draw too much of a crowd at any given point

One of those Walk-in COVID test centres which having been popping up around the country will be in Waterford for 5 days starting tomorrow (Saturday). College Street Campus, you need to bring Photo ID and provide a phone number so they can follow up.

Full details are here: https://waterford-news.ie/2021/04/09...entre-to-open/

I wonder if this has anything to do with the schools being closed?

We'll see soon enough I suppose!

Not sure why anyone would voluntarily go and put themselves forward for testing if they have no symptoms.

Think about it . If you have covid but don't have any symptoms you could potentially infect lots of people so what's wrong with getting tested to check .it's been a success in other areas of the country and has picked up over 300 asymptomatic cases who then had to isolate . I don't see your issue with it ?

Each to their own I guess, I wont be rushing to put myself forward for testing anyway, as a family we mix in a very small bubble. Community transmission is actually very small at the minute also thankfully. In Waterford alone we had four LEA's with no cases in the last 14 days. If people are genuinely concerned, then Id imagine they would be getting referred to the test centre by their GP.

Apparently a third of people who have COVID and transmit it don't have any symptoms, and I presume that means unless they've been close contacts and/or referred for a test, then they probably have no idea they're infected.

That being said though, given that our numbers have (thankfully) been so small again over the last 2 or so weeks, I'm sure there's probably other areas in the country that would have benefitted from it more than us.
