Local paper reports the invention of yet another new tier. God only knows what else they can close without it being a lockdown.

The problem is it is all quite marginal stuff which people are often doing already.

Something like compulsory mask-wearing outside when people are already socially distancing, minimising the time spent outdoors (thank you sh.tty weather) and often wearing masks voluntarily already will make a rounding error's worth of difference.

In comparison keeping schools open vs closed is something like 0.5 on the R number.

It is madness to even persist with ever-tighter penny-packet measures while the big ones remain unaddressed.

If they like partying so much - how about a new compulsory 6 month Isle of Wight festival??? :mrgreen:
Could they cope with that much Hawkwind?
I think Hawkwind would pose the biggest threat of the spread of the virus yet given that they would probably get through about 20 new members during that period.
Does face paint count as a face covering?

True, but they're all probably immune to all known diseases, although more by good luck than good management...
It first was a rumour dismissed as a lie, but then came the evidence none could deny:
a double page spread in the Sunday Express — the Russians are running the DHSS!
