I have changed the way I work since lockdown as I'm taking in calls at my home, Im only take the booking if the client pays a deposit. I've been very lucky and had lovely regs do long bookings this week.

As I promised earlier, the gov/NHS info about testing:

"Anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can get a free test to check if they have the virus. Some people without symptoms can have the test too."

https://www.nhs .uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-an-antigen-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/ (REMOVE SPACE AFTER 'NHS')

Scroll down that page to get to the bit where you apply for/order a test. "This service is for everyone."

So yes, you, me, we are all entitled to a test. Just need to ask for it.

Surely it is only one in 1700 chance of catching corona.  So why has somebody written that they would eventually catch it?  I dispute this.

Then again I only see a handful of clients weekly and right now nobody until September.  I will be checking their occupation and their lifestyle a bit before agreeing to see them.

Leaving aside the fact that 87.3% of statistics are bollocks ;D, even the above doesn't mean that you can snog 1699 punters before you catch anything. The first person through the door could be contagious or none of them at all (and you could then catch it in Tesco Express on the way home anyway, assuming you're not one of the vast number of people who've had CV19 without knowing it).

One post so bizarre and bereft of critical thinking it went beyond off topic removed. Lets stick with sex work, please :).

Has anyone attempted working in hotels yet? I can only tour or do outcalls, but really need to get back to work soon  :(

There's an update coming up on BBC any minute, for anybody who happens to be near a TV because they thought Pointless was on.

I don't know if anything about when we/close contact businesses can work again is part of it but it you never know :).

Tattoo parlours can open, as can beauty salons, spas and tanning salons from Monday.  Cant see anything about massage, but I assume that will be OK, as they are saying as long as treatments are not done on the face it is allowed.  Locally the chinese massage parlours have been blatently open for a while with no issues.

I will take this as a green light to open up again

When was this. I know some months ago this was procedure, however it's changed.

There was also something about people in high risk jobs being able to access tests if they wanted them - I can't find out anything further about it yet, but I can't imagine that sex work wouldn't qualify. It's probably worth some digging around in the next few days - maybe somebody at one of the projects would know.

Indoor Gym and Swimming Pools will open from 25th July.

More traffic to hotels so doing incalls will not be an issue.

Yes I've just read this--

Beauticians, tattooists, spas, tanning salons, and other close contact services can reopen from Monday 13 July in England.

Let's hope it means us ha!

Plus the 15 day travelling quarantine to the UK ends tomorrow, tourism is back! which means a big influx of people slowly coming back to the hotels in the next couple of weeks which is good news.

Hopefully AW and VS will take their warnings off now.
