We must get back to reality.

I think this is the nub of the issue. People don't take sensible precautions. They seem to think that the transmissibility of the disease has somehow reduced just because the rules have been changed. Whereas in fact all that has changed is the potential burden on the NHS.

The boozer next door to us started serving drinks "outside" in a tepee as soon as they could. The cacophony from there was not that of small groups of sensibly distanced people having a quiet drink. When the place opened again as a restaurant, we got the usual loud music from the kitchen, chefs screeching for service over the noise of the extract fan. Unsurprisingly they had an outbreak of Covid amongst the staff and had to close for a week.

It's extremely arbitrary, some businesses allowed to operate, others not, but in the end people need to keep their distance and not shout in each others' faces. I don't think we'll see the old normal for a very long time.

It’s not untrue to say that the general public are becoming a little complacent. I’ve noticed this out and about at the shops, doing the school-run, even queuing up for an ice-cream… people are generally assuming it’s already over when it’s not yet. Throw in a few England games and some decent weather and it’s not hard to see how/why the numbers (comprising a more transmissible variant) are on the rise again. We know from past experience that it takes a lockdown to suppress - the fiasco over London and SE being upgraded from Level 2 to 4 in a matter of days springs to mind - and let’s not forget that the majority of those more likely to be socialising and out and about probably comprise a higher percentage of those who’ve had only a single or no dose yet.

So I’ve got a feeling that it’ll be a 2-week delay announced on Monday at least; followed by a further one to allow for vaccinations to catch-up. My second one is due at the beginning of July, and I always had a feeling that we wouldn’t be returning to normality until the more median age-groups (where I sit) are fully vaccinated.

Hope the wedding goes well Lurkster. With a bit of luck, I’m wrong in the above.

Nope: The advice this week was not to book a wedding for more than 30 after June 21st in case the date of no restrictions is pushed back.

I reckon the potential date will move back 4 weeks.

Hardly a massive shock. The government, via the press, have been priming us for this for a while.

 That’s the first publication stating 4 weeks I’ve seen.  Be my guest to link me to an earlier one.
