Corona Lock down Diaries – Day 428 – Relaxing the rules

A slight change in the lockdown rules. Probably. Maybe.

So today sees something of a relaxation of the lockdown rules here in England. As long as you can figure them out. We can apparently go out and meet with other people outdoors, but must maintain social distancing. Oh and we can only meet one on one. I think. So you could potentially meet one of your parents but not both at the same time.

You could though leave one locked in the car (with a window cracked for safety) and then enjoy alternate visits with them. You cannot however see both at the same time. Unless they both stay in the car and you roll the window down fully and maintain a safe distance from the pavement. That you can do.

They cannot though give you a lift home if it starts to rain and you’ve forgotten your umbrella. You’ll have to just get wet.

On the plus side, the government have extended the furlough scheme meaning 7 million people will be guaranteed 80% of their wage, from the government, until the end of June. Beyond that it will continue until the end of September, though at a reduced rate.

I do fear that people will go out and throw caution to the wind though. There will then be an inevitable spike and those back to work will then have to return home under a second lockdown and they will all resume their government funded lie ins, scrolling through Tik Tok and vigorous masturbation.

Maybe that’s the hope. Who knows.

  1. Same here, more or less…
    I imagine there’ll be a new surge of cases and then all the people who are already outraged will be outraged all over again… meanwhile, I’ll keep working from home and being mostly oblivious to all of it…

  2. Michael – Hmm. Well that is clear as mud isn’t it? On social media today I saw a large group of people exiting a very crowded red double-decker bus … it was as if they wanted to buck the system. I have no doubt that will happen here as well. Look at them shutting down the park I go to daily. One person screws it up for others. Every. Single. Time.
