    Yes, manage the risk and let's avoid the painful separations we're seeing.

    Agree with the above totally. I live 78 miles from my partner, we usually work in our own areas and then spend weekends and holidays with each other but even if guidelines were eased so we could meet up then the distance limitation should be removed.

    Apply WHO guideline of 1m physical separation, not arbitary current 2m limit.

    I agree with this I think the majority of our society are able to sensibly socially distance amongst close family and friends. I believe this would be very beneficial to everyone's mental health. The bubble expansion idea is to0 difficult - what if I choose someone and they don't choose me? Allowing people to take responsibility for social distancing would I believe work well so long as it is made clear that any big spike in cases would mean that this would have to be pulled back
