Relaxation of Restrictions, Part XII *Read OP For Mod Warnings*

    No it's 1st class and up I think which would imply 6/7 year olds. Technically they are "rules" but to my knowledge Teachers haven't been enforcing them in the past and won't start enforcing it now

    It’s not 1st class up the advice is 3rd to 6th Class

    The argument for keeping Masks in certain places is that if you are in a vulnerable category can "choose" to stay away from Pubs/Nightclubs etc. but you may have no option but to travel on Public transport , go to a shop or indeed go to school/work.

    So they are keeping the masks there for a little while longer which I can see the logic for.

    I can understand the mask part but students must still sit 1m apart in classrooms (2nd level), can't do group work, can't use dressing rooms for PE or sports etc etc. Masks would be the least part of it

    Well fair enough, that would be 9/10 year olds so if I recall my primary school days?

    They will not tweak any remaining measures; they will either stay in place as they are or go in their entirety. February 28 may be a good bet for the end of them.

    Yes, 2 pubs I was in over weekend were back to normal pre March 2020 as per the new regulations. And it was a fecking joy to behold.

    But one restaurant / pub still had (mask needed, table service only etc) Like WTF? This was yesterday afternoon.

    They have won this battle because dispite the best efforts of the media and Politicians the general public never turned against the unvaccinated, the unvaccinated have as much freedom today as the vaccinated, footfall was down substantially in pubs for the last 6 months

    That's mad, I'll stick to the Oxford or definitions (I know they changed the wording slightly on MW but that was a minor update on what was already there).
