    Scott Allan - diabetics to be isolated for up to 12 weeks

    If or when Ďat-riskí groups are asked to self isolate for up to 12 weeks, this would see the end to Scottís season.

    The health minister today stated that those with conditions that require/are recommended the flu vaccination would be asked to self isolate for a period of up to 12 weeks, under current guidelines.

    I am also a diabetic, told today to stay home from work and work remotely... before these new measures came into play.

    Unknown times ahead for many, stay safe everyone.

    Shame for Scott, but heíll train and keep fit in the time he is isolated. I think the season is over for all players, fit, unfit or those in vulnerable groups. Scott will be back playing for Hibs as well as he is at present.
    Iím 73, widowed and type two diabetic and am resigned to a few months of isolation. Iíll make sure I get out and about during this time and will play plenty of golf and walk a lot. Iíll still meet friends and family at a very safe distance. The thing Iíll miss most is cuddles from the grandkids. Life will go on.

    Hope the sun shines, and you have a record score at the golf!

    My gran and my mother in law also face this next hurdle alone, so I really feel for everyone faced with the next few months spent isolated, thankfully we do live in a world with caters phones and the like. I know itís not the same but hopefully softens the blow. All the best to everyone out there, regardless of your point of view on current matters. Stay safe, be healthy and persevere.

    Thanks for the kind words, guys, but this post is not about me, itís essentially about Scott and everybody facing challenges in the next couple of months. What we all hoped might be a wee inconvenience a month ago is now a major issue for us all so I think a big group hug is in order.

    Good luck Jim.

    My wife is in the same boat as sheís type 1 diabetic and Iím currently not sure how we are going to deal with it.

    I wasnít sure what the Ďrulesí were on going for walks in quiet places where there wonít be much human contact, Iím sure I heard that was still a bit of a no go but I canít think why?

    Iím also conscious that Iíll be going out to work and our boy is going to school and coming home to her, Iím not sure how that can be avoided though.

    Itís a hell of a scary time, I just keep trying to remind her, and myself, that in the greater scheme of things itís not a huge amount of time, the next three months will feel like an eternity though.

    Communication from govt. is confusing as usual. Social isolation, for those with symptoms is different from social distancing

    What is social distancing?
    Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce the social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

    They are:
    Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough;
    Avoid non-essential use of public transport, varying your travel times to avoid rush hour, when possible; 3.Work from home, where possible. Your employer should support you to do this. Please refer to employer guidance for more information;
    Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs
    Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media.
    Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.
    Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is pragmatic.

    For those who are over 70, have an underlying health condition or are pregnant, we strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can, and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with friends and family if possible.

    This advice is likely to be in place for some weeks.

    Handwashing and Respiratory Hygiene
    There are general principles you can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
    washing your hands more often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use a hand sanitiser when you get home or into work, when you blow your nose, sneeze or cough, eat or handle food
    avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
    avoid close contact with people who have symptoms
    cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin and wash your hands
    clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home

    Here is a link to the official version of the updated guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-on-social-distancing-and-for-vulnerable-people/guidance-on-social-distancing-for-everyone-in-the-uk-and-protecting-older-people-and-vulnerable-adults

    We are advising those who are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) to be particularly stringent in following social distancing measures.
    This group includes those who are:
    aged 70 or older (regardless of medical conditions)
    under 70 with an underlying health condition listed below (ie anyone instructed to get a flu jab as an adult each year on medical grounds):
    chronic (long-term) respiratory diseases, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema or bronchitis
    chronic heart disease, such as heart failure
    chronic kidney disease
    chronic liver disease, such as hepatitis
    chronic neurological conditions, such as Parkinsonís disease, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), a learning disability or cerebral palsy
    diabetes
    problems with your spleen Ė for example, sickle cell disease or if you have had your spleen removed
    a weakened immune system as the result of conditions such as HIV and AIDS, or medicines such as steroid tablets or chemotherapy
    being seriously overweight (a BMI of 40 or above)
    those who are pregnant
    Note: there are some clinical conditions which put people at even higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. If you are in this category, next week the NHS in England will directly contact you with advice the more stringent measures you should take in order to keep yourself and others safe. For now, you should rigorously follow the social distancing advice in full, outlined below.

    People falling into this group are those who may be at particular risk due to complex health problems such as:
    People who have received an organ transplant and remain on ongoing immunosuppression medication
    People with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radiotherapy
    People with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia who are at any stage of treatment
    People with severe chest conditions such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma (requiring hospital admissions or courses of steroid tablets)
    People with severe diseases of body systems, such as severe kidney disease (dialysis)

    Thanks, b70. Weíre all pretty much in the dark but Iím confident that fresh air and walking in quiet areas is fine and, in my opinion a good thing for physical and mental health and getting rid of cabin fever. Best wishes to you and your family.

    I'm also 73, Jim. if you swap your diabetes for my COPD, we are in the same boat.
    I don't know if I'll be able to handle 3 or 4 months of isolation, with no football or other sports.
    Like you, Jim, I'll try to get out for a walk, but my lung disease means that won't be too far.
    I understand that I will be helping to ensure that the NHS is not overwhelmed, but my biggest problem is what exactly happens to the likes of us at the end of this 12 or 16 week period. The disease is still going to be around and it will still most likely kill me if I catch it.
    That's something to look forward to after a long isolation

    Sorry to hear about your illness mim. Iíll miss sport as well but, although Iím on my own, I think I will be able to fill my time. I like painting and reading and really enjoy cooking. I watch a fair bit of telly and listen to the radio a lot. I think looking after your mental health is as important as physical health so keep your mind active and keep a sense of humour. Of course thereís always Hibs.net for a good old moan and at least some interaction with other folk. Take care.

    Cheers, mate. Itís quite ironic and strange to read your words, because, as quite few on here can testify, I have been and, on a good day, can be one of the grumpiest and most negative barstewards on this board when it comes to chatting about Hibs, football and humdrum life in general . But, letís face it, all thatís trivial in the bigger scheme of things. This crisis is a huge boot up the arse in terms of taking a serious look at the really important things in life and I am focussed on my and my familyís quality of life. Football might be in hibernation but weíve all just got to get on with things as best we can.

    A great thread. So often threads on here can turn negative with people having a go at each other but this thread probably sums up .netters better than most and is a ray of light on a cloudy day.

    i'm diabetic as well, work already put the feelers out last week to see if anyone had underlying health issues and if they could work from home.

    would prefer working from home for a bit tbh

    I’m also type 1 diabetic and the thought of being stuck at home for 12 weeks is absolutely soul destroying. Hope it doesn’t come to that. I’m an electrician so working from home is pretty impossible so wouldn’t even have work to keep me occupied

    That's the main problem, working from home only suits a very small percentage of the population.

    I actually have that option, but I really don't want to do it. I couldn't stand the thought of only having me for company for weeks on end.

    The way Iím playing? Iíll still be hacking my way round the course, but youíll wait long enough for a wee refreshment in the clubhouse.

    Both my parents are diabetic, and so's my wife who was sent home from work today to self isolate. As a result I'm off work for 14 days. I feel really sorry for her, she's had 2 major operations recently and now this. And to make it worse she's going to have to put up with me 24/7 for at least whole week! Nae luck.
