Day 110 of self-isolation - Free at last!

Free at last!

No, not really. It's just a bit of opening up, and if that leads to an increase in the virus, the reversal in Leicester can happen elsewhere.

Here are the new guidelines.

  • You can meet in groups of up to two households 
  • When you are outside you can continue to meet in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines
  • Additional businesses and venues, including restaurants, pubs, cinemas, visitor attractions, hotels, and campsites will be able to open
  • Other public places, such as libraries, community centres, places of worship, outdoor playgrounds and outdoor gyms will be able to open
  • Stay overnight away from your home with your own household or support bubble, or with members of one other household
  • It will be against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people, except for a limited set of circumstances to be set out in law
Pubs. That's the important thing. And why can we do this? Cases are down from 5000/day to a few hundred per day; deaths down from 1000/day down to a bit more than 100. Still too high, of course.

 At Drsolly Towers, we now have our part time cleaner coming in two days each week, and we're having picnics in the back garden with daughters and family. So, we've opened up slightly, but not as much as the rest of the country. We closed down before Bojo the Clown said, and we're opening up later than he wants.
