In a detailed interview on QUAY-FM 107.1 this morning, Alderney Week volunteer Ronnie Cairnduff explained some of the many considerations and challenges facing the Alderney Week Team since the identification of a COVID-19 cluster on Alderney.
Ronnie explained that a “GO/NO-GO” decision had not been made yet, and would probably be made tomorrow, Thursday.
“We have been consulting with Public Health, and will follow the science.” said Ronnie this morning. “A full risk assessment will always be carried out, taking COVID into account. In any event that this is a requirement of our insurers.”
Local opinion appears to be somewhat divided on the matter. “The AW Team are in an unenviable position” said one resident after hearing the interview. “Whatever decision they make, there will always be criticism of it from some quarters, particularly from the Facebook Keyboard Warrior cohort”.
