But social contact doesn't have to be close up. Even just a casual interchange in the street or in a shop, even with a stranger, is quite a lift to the spirits. Or a very small group socially distanced in a quiet location.
Obviously not the same as an intimate natter with friends, but not as bad as being totally isolated.

paulh. Antisocial distancing works a well as the Social kind

I like casual interchanges in the street or in shops, but my psychiatrist thinks it's not enough. I think he's procrustean, wanting things a certain way regardless of what the other person is comfortable with.

SashaQ - happysad and 'slightly mad'

"I think the big mistake was allowing pubs & restaurants to open with '1 metre plus' distancing."

Yes, that's what confuses me, that social distancing doesn't seem to factor now... Six people at a table in a restaurant is not equivalent to six people two metres apart from each other in the open air...

Glad you felt comfortable at the choir rehearsal, Teasswill - sounds well organised indeed smiley - ok

Hearing some of our acquaintances pondering how to manage groups of 6 with their various children & numerous grandchildren, we feel for once, grateful that we have no choice in the matter. With one single offspring now in our social bubble & the other with their family living on the other side of the world, no contest. Sadly, even my mother's death relieved us of a social bubble dilemma.

Grateful, but but we'd rather have the dilemma...

At least four companies are testing potential vaccines. Johnson & Johnson is the latest to announce tests.

Mr T has taken the plunge & downloaded the app because he's going to an event where they want people to use the QR code. I have pointed out that although he has to give his contact details, it's not obligatory to use the QR code.
As it doesn't log you out until midnight, or until you log in somewhere else, seems a bit dodgy to me.

Can't be bothered to look back down the thread to see if this has been posted before, but before after he was Dennis Pennis and before he was Thoros of Myr in Game of Thrones, look at this:

Gosport. Looks like I'm living in a tier one area as from tomorrow.

How's it looking where you are?

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

Tonight we will probably get a layered response system as well. So everything we still want to do freely will have to take place before seven… (which is probably not a good idea)
