Is anyone watching the coronavirus update? Apparently things are going back to normal by no later than middle of May. Back to school in a few weeks and phased opening of non-essential stores, socials etc. after that. everything should be back to normal by no later than 17th May apparently.

UPDATE: Another update: all social restrictions will be lifted by 21st June. Night clubs, pubs, venues, weddings etc.

If anyone's interested, Boris Johnson is outlining it here right now - video source:

Apparently schools and colleges / unis will be back to normal in a few weeks. They're doing some sort of phased plan - March, April and then May (almost everything back to normal everywhere).

UK... Boris Johnson is the prime minister in the UK. Joe Biden is the U.S president.

This is primarily a UK based forum.

BoJo said he doesn't want to go into another lockdown, but isn't able to outright deny this won't happen.

Schools and universities will be allowed to go back to normal by June. That doesn't mean they will, often universities will be far more cautious than the government and many schools are being extremely careful with social distancing measures etc. especially to protect its own staff - since Teacbers are not a priority for the vaccine.

BoJo is saying by 8th March, we will have face-to-face teaching again (in England). Unfortunately Wales is an unknown.

"Face to Face teaching" and "back to normal" aren't the same thing. In October I was teaching with a visor on my face, unable to cross a piece of tape on the floor of a classroom. That is what I expect to be doing until the summer at the very least.

It sounding like it's all gonna be fine, they will do tests twice a week for all the students and should all be okay. I think this is a bit optimistic tbh, they are still advising that for working people they should continue to work from home...

Wales will follow England, they have been in step for the most part or a bit more cautious.

NI will follow England.

Scotland is more interesting because until the second wave Sturgeon largely copied England but two weeks later to feign reckless Boris however since last Autumn she's tended to gamble more aggressively than England and she may well do so.

I think back to normal is a bit of a misnomer though, stuff like masks and tier 1 type stuff will probably stay for a year or so. The economy at least should be let loose the end of furlough aside.

With two loads of council seats (about 6500) up for grabs though I think we can all agree that the timing for Boris could not be better. Far from a major threat, this could be a massive boon to his fortunes.

If they're saying that by 21st June, all social restrictions will be lifted - including places like night clubs, pubs, weddings etc. then I don't see what wearing masks will make any difference?

I'm suggesting it will likely be a false dawn. As alluded to I can see potential restrictions next winter if only out of fear.

They've been optimistic for 11 months, and made poor decisions in my personal view for the majority of that time.

There is plenty of scientific evidence to say that wearing masks reduces transmission.

Yeah masks make a difference I know that, not a conspiracy theory nutcase lol. I meant that, in nightclubs for example and social settings where people are exchanging fluids and touching each other I don't see the point of masks?

I'll repeat the phrase used by Chris Whitty when asked sometime last year about the effectiveness of social distancing, masks etc...
Anything helps.
