Why is Scotland so much later? We need to be allowed to get back to work.

Never really understood this or bubbles.
One person I know has 14 bubbles. Shielding, was that locking someone up?

Thank you HMG but I think I will decide when I think it's safe for me to stop self isolating.

I don't think anybody is telling you that you shouldn't or can't stop isolating mate.

You can lock yourself away for as long as you like.

We all want to get on with our lives.

As shielding people emerge into the wider world everyone needs to remember that though the vaccinations make the difference between life and death for some they will not totally stop some developing covid.

Everyone must still wash their hands, wear a mask and social distance. And it must be enforced so that life can resume.

I still wont be going out, till I know how effective the vaccine has been on people like me, who are taking Immunosuppressant medicines, it has stated by the government & vaccine manufacturers, that some immunosuppressed patients may have a suboptimal response to the vaccine and should therefore continue to avoid exposure unless they are advised otherwise by their doctor or clinicians.

I don't call mask wearing and anti-social distancing life resuming.

It's not a case of HAVING to stay at home, it is a case of feeling safer doing so.

Then I'm sorry to say that in that case you'll never go out again. The only thing you have to fear is fear itself.

But hospitalisations have started to go back up in some areas (following the re-opening of schools). Add to this a slowdown in vaccinations (for whatever reasons) and we will need to be careful we follow the data, not dates.

You want to stay at home fine. I have and will continue to refuse to so, as have a great many others. With the "surprising" result of still been perfectly healthy.

Ditto, even my job exposes me to it daily, never a symptom, never a +ve test

Telling clinically vulnerable people to stop shielding when they haven't had both jabs and not fully immune... What could possibly go wrong?
