Using some sporting events as testing before the official date for the return of 25%/10k max. League Cup and FA Cup Finals could be used.Doubt I'll be able to go till 2022, wouldn't expect full capacity till then....depends on the numbers I suppose
am I being too namby pamby? All seems a bit soon to meUsing some sporting events as testing before the official date for the return of 25%/10k max. League Cup and FA Cup Finals could be used.
Full capacity's could return from the 21st June. That will be reviewed of course.
There is a reason the Government are trying to get the Euro's over here as they think they will be able to have near full attendences after the Group Stages and might be able to invite a small amount of away fans (rumoured at 3000) for the knock out games. Presume those attending from outside the UK will require vaccine passports to gain entry
Its finding the balancing act isn't it. It probably should go out further but then the longer it goes on the more and more businesses that go under etc.am I being too namby pamby? All seems a bit soon to me
Problem is the virus could run wild among the people who haven't/can't/won't be vaccinated and cause loads of mutations.One for the main Covid thread really but once the most vulnerable are sorted (most of them are) AND you've done the over 50s as a double barrier then you're really not risking much.
Dreadful for those who literally can't have the vaccine but we can't keep society shut for <1% of the population. Anyone who actively chooses not to have it, fuck them, your problem if you die.
Maybe I'm just too cautious....but the thought of going into another lockdown in late Summer makes me shudder.....I simply don't trust people to behave properly I suppose.......hopefully my concerns are unfounded.Maybe, but we can't live on the basis of vague possibilities. Because this has lasted so long (far too long, caused by failures at the top) people are sort of accustomed to it now, but it's not sustainable. Viruses always mutate, it's what they do and why it's a different flu vaccine every year.
We also can't have the "just a little bit longer" model for any more time as we've heard it far too often and it's always bollocks. Like when my Da promised me that Machynlleth wasn't that far from Aberystwyth when we first went, "we're in Wales now, it's not far". Well, in comparison between here and New York, no. But it bloody isn't close.
Zero Covid isn't a thing in the UK (we can't operate like NZ for a number of reasons, one being they have competent people in charge and we broke that stable gate some time ago) so we have to push the button when the risk is low, which it should be.
Given they have to make very few decisions from here, unless they deliberately try to be clever* then it should be fine.
*They are not clever and they should never attempt this.
