Make sure she wears rubber gloves before she touches your Mickey, better still everyone should put on a hazmat suit the second before she walks in the door.

On top of that, apparently there some virus going round so you should take measures to protect yourselves from that too

Many pubs in Cork closed yesterday or earlier today voluntarily.
All pubs bar one in my area were closed today and don't even open.

I don't think anyone strongly disagrees with any of that. However, what you posted is almost word for word identical to a WhatsApp message my wife was sent earlier.
The problem with this sorry of messages is that it can lead to panic and cause large clusters of people to congregate at supermarkets leading to a higher risk of the virus spreading. I really don't know why people do this sort of stuff.
I didn't get my info on WhatsApp. I received a text from this Garda officer. In the text he specified 11am announcement about the Tuesday lockdown. His text says access to shops will be limited because trading hours are to be reduced from Tuesday and customers will be restricted from buying quantities of the same product in each store.

Apparently this was agreed at a meeting at Garda HQ tonight

If true, I imagine that he's broken the Official Secrets Act and put his job at risk, and you've probably also committed a crime by reporting here.

Sure many did but many more didn’t . Lots of pubs packed to the rafters all weekend. Any pub making the announcement today didn’t really make the decision voluntarily in the public interest, they made it in light of a strong social media campaign to get them to close and in the knowledge that the government was taking action to force them to close in the coming days

Yes they fucking did. There's no pubs open in Drumcondra, Phibsboro or Glasnevin today( I gave up at about 12). I said it already in the thread but a lot of their owners/management and staff will be in the high risk categories. And it's been happening up and down the country.

No think about it. If 50% of the pubs close the crowd will squeeze into the remaining 50%. ANd it gets worse the higher % of the pubs close. If you were over 50 handling cash in a bar all day you'd basically be resigned to getting the virus.

Nah, that wasn’t it

The majority of pubs were open on Friday and Saturday after government advice on social distancing was issued. Many of them were packed as evidenced by the videos circulating on social media. Sure , some pubs closed but they were firmly in a minority. That has all changed today obviously now that every publican knows what’s around the corner. The point is that when it was largely left up to them it was basically business as usual

Not sure why you think so many pub employees are in the high risk group ? (as a % compared to other sectors)

I have thought about it , and there’s no way 50% of the pubs in Dublin were closed on Saturday. Anyway this conversation was initiated by Ruckinhell’s assertion that 99% of the public were following government advice and pubs were all closing down voluntarily, meaning lockdown was completely unnecessary

I disagreed with the premise of his argument, I don’t disagree that some publicans may have made a conscientious effort

The issue with the video from Temple Bar isn't that it was packed, as such, but the behaviour of the people where they were throwing two fingers up to the advice.

Not enough direction was given in terms of pubs but going out of your way to touch other people's hands? Ffs.

99 was a poor choice of a figure but the level of compliance is a large enough percentage that the idea that we bring in martial law is daft. Temple bar organisation shut down the pubs when asked, the idea we need troops on the ground to impose order is comical because it's not necessary at this stage and we don't have enough to do it effectively on a nationwide scale.

I think this is the type of thing the army will be needed for rather than stopping regular people leaving their houses. Civil unrest in the group that's been turned into sociopaths will need to be contained.

There was loads of places open today, many only decided to close when they realised the backlash from last night would take the power to reopen again out of their hands. There was a couple of places in the city centre open at 7pm this evening.

The army won't deal with that sort of stuff. It's not constitutionally allowed.

Anyway, saw a post on Instagram earlier from a family we know in Atlanta.

Ruckinhell I think you’re greatly underestimating the rate of compliance required of the general public to make social distancing effective. I also believe you’re greatly overestimating the number of people who have shown a willingness to comply with the guidelines without having their arm forced on the issue

This is a unique, unprecedented situation we find ourselves in andwe know we need social distancing at any cost to slow the spread of the virus. I certainly wouldn’t be writing off martial law at this stage as stupid or unnecessary when we don’t seem to have a grip on public compliance and we don’t know
how many of the public will react to new restrictions being placed on them

No, Smyths was the only pub open in Ranelagh today and even it had a sign saying only 100 people at a time could be inside. I didn't go in to check.

I did notice that Nightmarket was using its side outside space for people to collect take aways.

I see Richie Barratt is offering beds in unopened nursing homes he's developed to the state at cost. These would be quasi-hospital beds with full hospital bed head facilities.

Much better than hotel beds.

Spoke to my older brother yesterday and he was devastated that he won’t be seeing his grandkids for a while. He and his wife are the childminders for his daughters three kids in particular and they have daily contact, and while he understands that this is being done out of concern for his welfare, he said he was almost in tears when his daughter gave him the news on Friday. It’s a shit time.
