Allow people to make an informed choice: organise proposals by Covid risk

Any measures we implement must make sense to people. As an example, most would agree that providing PPE so that care workers entering care homes were at very low risk of bring Covid into the home was a sensible measure addressing a relatively high risk. On the other hand, removing lone sunbathers from remote beaches feels like a measure that addresses a vanishingly small risk.

So organise proposed measures in terms of the risk they represent and explain the thinking. Then, tend to implement the measures that have lower risk first.

Why the contribution is important

People will back proposals if they seem to make sense. If the measures are demonstrably low risk, then people will be on-side when these proposals are introduced.
