could have implications on fan return if announced:

Has to. If they're cancelling the pilots, sets the whole thing back. Taken together with the Spain (and other countries to come) quarantine, the hastily announced localised lockdowns, there's clearly an upsurge in cases they're worried about. Fair play, at least they are taking action, might be handy if they explained it though, all seems a bit haphazard

that's the point. it probably statistically has validity. They think it will be enough to keep it in check.

but all people see is inconsistent messages all over the shop. The message risks getting diluted

They're trying to reopen the economy, but clamp down on on outbreaks. This is the "Whackamole" strategy that Johnson talked looks like. A bit haphazard.

TBF it's better than the "let it sweep through the population and let thousands die" approach they went with in Feb/March.

Pubs and restaurants are only fine as long as they are only populated by strangers, if any family or friends are there you are breaching the rules.

It's been odd round here, masks etc being worn impeccably but we went to town the other day and frankly apart from the few masks being worn outside you wouldn't have known anything was going on.

How soon until we're all locked down again? Signs are there that this is going to escalate. Not that it's any shock. People are selfish morons and the government are totally useless after all.

The measures they're implementing now are the ones that should have been put in place when easing lockdown. Obviously these latest measures are to try and stop another countrywide lockdown but it seems all too reactive and ill-thought.

Iím struggling to see the correlation between getting the schools open and having to close the pubs to achieve that.
