Thoughts go out to you, Wellington.

Unfortunately there are others who do NOT believe that it exists.  I met someone at a garden centre a couple of years ago, and she did not believe that covid existed and was not prepared to take any precautions!  :-X :-X  Perhaps she and her family are still alive  :-\
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

It's just an out of date board header that underlined the situation at the time it was written, it's not an instruction from Tristan and Sarah! You do seem to be taking it rather seriously.....

I agree.

If you have an issue with it, don’t look at the board or the “blurb”. I’m sure Trystan and the others have plenty of more important things to do than spend time changing words which one person objects to.

Surely it is time to move on?

We have moved on. A current thread is about autumn 2022 boosters.

I don’t contribute as often as I used to but I do read the thread every day…

At the time when Trystan first wrote the diary it was a life saver for most people who contributed to it and helped enormously knowing how others felt..and is still continuing to do so..

I agree that for a few words, which incidentally I’ve never read, at the beginning are irrelevant really..

Just reading the news app this evening they are talking about numbers on the increase and secondary school children going to be monitored more closely… so it’s not gone away and we are now entering into having a further vaccination..

Masks still worn in surgeries and other places too… caution still taken, shopping deliveries from supermarkets still happening …

I feel very fortunate that neither I or my OH have had covid… whilst others around us have… many of whom have got on aircraft to go on holiday… or cruise ships..

The, now, weekly thread still keeps us informed about how everyone’s coping, comparisons with symptoms of vaccinations etc etc..
No one is obligated to contribute so personally I don’t see that the wording matters and definitely the thread shouldn’t be removed.

Although much lower than before, cases are going up again:

Watching the Queen’s funeral & looking at the crowds - I immediately thought of the risks of spreading Covid. 

The warnings we were given back in 2020 should always be in our minds so I endorse all the favourable comments for keeping the “Stay Safe” board

I had the same thought. Some people wore masks at the lying-in-state.
