  1. Presumably each of these people is isolating.
    And presumably those who have associated with them are also isolating.
    So, they will not be going to work.
    So, their colleagues will be trying to cover for them, as well as doing their own work. In these times, it’s difficult to find replacement workers at short notice.

    And remember – these are all people, real people, feeling worried about their situation.

    How was opening Orkney up early last year good for the economy – or good for the people of Orkney?
