I totally agree that we need to be very careful about increasing contacts with other people but I wonder, when the time is right, if as a start we could have contact with one other household. This could be a mutually exclusive arrangement initially, but it would mean that isolated friends could see each other and families could see each other at least in a limited way, It would be a fairly simple message to convey and a fairly simple restriction to re-impose if it proved necessary. If it did not lead to a spike, it would also be fairly simple to gradually expand. I think this would make a massive difference to how people could cope with a continuation of the current limitations.

Why the contribution is important

I think it is important for our general mental health, but a limited and controlled expansion of our social circle will also help us to cope with these limitations for longer if that turns out to be necessary.
