Another four videos were played on my TV this weekend which showed closely packed crowds of people dancing, laughing, having a good time.  It's noticeable that the ones who are refusing to heed any warning belong to the twenty-thirty age range.  These are the ones who are most vociferous with complaints that their rights aren't being met.

This type has been responsible for causing lockdowns at various times in various places and which had meant that the remedial operation on my eyesight originally planned for March 2020 has not been able to be carried out  The first delay was caused by a national lockdown.  My driver/son, myself and the hospital are in three difference towns, which have all had to lockdown during different months.   I am holding my breath that there will not be any further lockdowns prior to my last ditch appointment on 28th September, when the NHS/private contract runs out.

Personally I think it is more noticeable that this is the age group they choose to display to all and sundry as flouting the rules - i very much doubt it is just that age group.

Face masks are to blame. People are emboldened by them and think they're immune when wearing one.

I agree that the media are probably stirring things by blaming the young and their socialising. It'll just be a minority, as always.

I've just been watching the US Open tennis from New York on tv and they did a marvellous job. No spectators other than player's support teams and officials. Everyone seemed to be keeping their distance and - yes - wearing face masks, except the players of course. I felt sorry for the ball boys and girls running about wearing those face coverings all the time but they didn't need to do it if they were allergic to the damn things.

Having been deprived of my tennis fix for all these months, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it all seemed to go very well. I suppose only time will tell: hopefully there won't be lots of covid cases amongst those who took part or officiated in a couple of weeks time.

The delayed French Open is due to take place in Paris in 2 weeks and I've heard that they are going to allow some fans in to watch, so I suppose the two events together might act as a kind of social experiment. Good for the French! No doubt the spectators seats will be like our buses: ticks where you can sit and crosses where you can't, and no doubt they'll all have to do their impressions of bank robbers and hide their faces.

(Actually, when I got on the bus last week, I had to look around for a 'ticked' seat as there were a few more people on than has previously been the case - I was wondering if all the 'ticked' seats had been occupied (there aren't that many), would the driver have thrown me off or let me stand?)

I doubt if many, if any, of the attendees were wearing face masks at this event

How on earth can you have a silent disco? I've read the link - and still none the wiser.

I had to look it up as well ;D
Apparently the participants wear earphones and the sound is sent to them wirelessly so they all dance to the music in their heads. That way no sound leaks from the building and these gatherings are more difficult to detect

All becomes clear! Thanks, LizzieL.  I wonder why the article assumed we all knew that?

I still think these incidents are the exception rather than the norm but the media are swooping on them for a good story.

The thing I really fail to understand is when did 'keep yourself safe' change to 'keep everyone else safe'?  I can (and do) keep myself and my OH as safe as possible by doing all the things we are supposed to (washing hands, social distancing etc) but as soon as we try to keep everyone else safe by wearing a face covering, then I fail to see how that can work.  People with breathing difficulties, disabilities etc. are exempt but are also the most likely to suffer serious complications from the virus.  So, I wear a mask to keep them safe but they don't have to wear one to keep me safe.  Some disabilities could wear a mask with no real issue but they are still exempt.

Can anyone tell me how many 'grannies' have been killed by their grandchildren during this pandemic?

Since face masks were required, there has been a noticed change at Supermarkets, to Social Distancing.

I have an average size furnished front room and with 2 metre Social Distancing 6 persons would be a maximum.

My Wife has met up with her friends and this 2 mtrs+ has been very strictly adhered to, in her Conservatory (access via back gate). Because her Son is a Medical Photographer.
