Quarantine’s End

AS of the 1st August shielding from Covid-19 has been suspended in Scotland so this means no more lockdown, and no more quarantine so back to work this week, around a month after most other people returned. So no more being forgotten about.


Frankly, I don’t think people know what to do with people shielding. We can’t isolate until a vaccine is maybe found but we can’t be put at risk so we all face a hard discussion as to what to do. Now I’ve been talking about a return to work for a month, and I hope things work out otherwise I’m going to have to find something that involves working from home assuming my health, both mental and physical, holds up. Four months of lockdown and more or less isolation will leave a toll, but as yet I don’t know what that might be.

So we’ll see how things go in whatever the world is now, but I have a feeling that before spring, we’ll be back on full lockdown again in a pattern of loosening and tightening that’ll be with us til, if, we find a vaccine.
