    Coronavirus for real

    For those of you following the covid 19 events in Europe and its progression you may wish to be aware that France has extended its confinement (lock-down) to 15 April, this suggests that the UK may follow suit since the pandemic has moved northwards from Italy at a fairly regular pace. Hopefully I will be wrong but I'm not too sure.

    Enjoy Life you only get it once and there is no Apprenticeship

    I don’t believe that France has ever been a model for the British to follow but we’re already in a twelve week stay at home period so the French are a bit late.

    I'm not too sure you can say that they are late since I said that they have extended it, they were in fact 2 weeks ahead of the UK, not only that you don't have justification certificates to allow you to go out yet where if you dont carry one you get a 135 euro fine for the first offence rising to 3200 euros or 6 months gaol for the 4th offence.

    Here is the english version of the form:
    TRAVEL WAIVER CERTIFICATE

    In application of article 3 of the decree of 23 March 2020 prescribing the general measures necessary to face up to the epidemic of Covid 19 in the context of the state of health emergency

    I the undersigned:

    Mrs/Mr:

    Born on:

    At (ie.your place of birth):

    Living at:

    Certify my movement is related to the following reason (tick the box) authorised by article 3 of the decree of 23 March 2020, prescribing the general measures necessary to face up to the epidemic of Covid 19 in the context of the state of health emergency:

    - Travel between home and the place of professional activity, when essential for the exercise of activities that cannot be organised in the form of teleworking (on permanent proof) or professional trips that cannot be organised through remote working or professional movements that cannot be postponed;

    - Travel to make essential purchases for work reasons, or for necessary goods, in authorised establishments (list on gouvernement.fr);

    - Travel for health reasons that cannot be done remotely or cannot be postponed; consultations and care of patients with an officially-recognised, long-standing health condition.

    - Travel for imperative family reasons, for assistance to vulnerable persons or childcare;

    - Short trips of one hour, once a day, within a 1km radius of your home, related to the individual physical activity of people, excluding any collective sports practice and all contact with other people; and only with people living in the same household, or for the needs of pets

    - Judicial or administrative summons

    - Participation in general interest work on the request of the administrative authority.

    Completed at _____________

    On (Date): ____/____/2020 at (Time) ____ h (hour) _____ (minutes)

    (Stating the date and time of the beginning of your trip is mandatory).

    Signature:

    Footnote

    People wishing to benefit from one of these exceptions must, during their trips outside the home, have this document allowing them to justify their travel under one of these exceptions.

    Use the first reason for non-salaried or freelance workers, when they do not or cannot use the professional travel proof form filled in by their employer.

    Purchase of necessary goods also includes free distribution, such as food banks, and trips related to receiving state benefits, and cash withdrawals.

    Serious times but I think you’re worrying too much Pierre, all too soon the yellow vests will be out on french streets again gibber gabbering to themselves and polluting their own atmosphere by burning car tyres!

    Thought you went to Alice Springs which is in the same state as Tennant.
    Or am I missing something?

    Stay safe Mates! Have been on Asthma medication for 55 years. I take care with my shop dust collection/ventilation and proper breathing safety protocol. Now need to transfer those thoughts for the restricted foray for groceries - and only if truly needed.

    My wife and I "should" recover in good shape if we get the virus, but we assist in the care of my in-laws (both 94 and very frail). If we pass something to them the prognosis would not be good; to say nothing of the resultant guilt if we did not take precautions. I've always tended to plan for the worst and hope for the best.

    Best regards, Mark

    I am in south Aust for dads funeral, fortunately we were allowed to see him before he died, hospital total lock down, nursing home one visitor per day 1/2 hour visit only in persons room. funerals a max of 10, but may be changed to nil very soon.
    Dont plan a wedding.

    Wanted to pick up some supplies from bunnings hardware so much is out of stock.
    Did manage to get can of spray bog, and the last tin of bog in the shop.

    I am sorry to hear about your dad (wm460), and I every thing turns out OK for you and your family, an for everyone else no matter which part of the world you live in. Things are getting bad at this point in time, I just hope it clears up soon, and we all get our lives back in some order.
