I'm confused by this mass testing of NHS critical workers.
If you test positive, are you sent home to self-isolate ?
If you test negative, are you cleared to carry on working as normal ?
But, presumably, you could be clear on Monday and then show symptoms and test positive on Tuesday. Are the tests repeated ? I doubt it.
[ I understand the value of antibody tests to determine whether a person has had CV.19 virus and is safe to resume normal life (but AFAIK that isn't available yet) ]
@andyc It would have been funny if you'd put.

With hindsight, I blame myself.
A year ago, I gave a demo where I used 'Global search' across all fields across all records, case blind with wildcards.
Incredibly easy and useful for the end-user but heinously inefficient from a database performance perspective.
It might take 50 seconds but it always takes 50 seconds and it's worth the wait.
A year on, I suspect most users *know* what field they are searching on so another Zoom session (with the Bay bridge as my background) may be useful.
Was researching an end-user issue about visibility of key reports. As I'm a Admin, I had to create my favourite test user account. The customer admin noticed and remarked:
'It's weird. We appear to have hired someone called 'Aaron Aardvark'. 😃
[ I normally use this name to I can easily identify his sessions and he's always at the top of the user directory ]
Analysing user behaviour in an APEX application delivered a year ago. I think more end user training would have been useful.
Global, case blind searches on a large data set that take 40 seconds, constantly and gradually being refined to identify the necessary subset of interest is probably sub-optimal. Interesting though...
Meanwhile down under, Ruben gives us an update.
I find it amusing, bizarre and quite worrying how some IT sales people (including my own daughter and colleagues) are adopting to a prolonged period of working remotely.
Endless, 'funny' C.19 videos, dressing up in dinner jackets for 'Happy Hour', having a morning 09:00 calls to ensure people to be up and dressed, tweaking Zoom wallpaper.
