Some thoughts on next steps

Anyone leaving the country should be tested . All those entering the country should be tested and isolate if necessary. Anyone should be able to access a home covid19 test kit and our app should be linked with our countries like Europe are doing to create some level of movement in and out of the country eventually. We should be using the test, track and trace to more effectively stop the spread and this if people were using it correctly would help lessen our lockdown. Anyone who can work from hone should remain doing so. Work places should consider working times for all to accommodate new childcare arrangements. Schools should be re opened in a slow, phased approach. Starting with older secondary children. They should be part time to support social distancing and potential staff absence due to underlying health issues and self isolation. Children who can stay at home should continue to do so . Current restrictions in supermarkets and other shops should remain. Masks should be worn when outside. A phasing in of gyms to allow people to exercise. Identify set zones people can travel in and out of initially eg a 10 mile radius. People if stopped would have to show proof of address to ensure not breaking rules or perhaps a travel card showing you are allowed to travel like in other countries. Also allowing you to visit close family members in their houses. With a restriction of no more than say 10 people in a residence.

Why the contribution is important

It would allow some lessening of restrictions and help those who are living on their own some contact. Also allow people to travel a little further for exercise eg a larger woodland area etc

    People with Asthma have reported difficulty breathing with masks on, yet Asthmatics are not considered sufficiently vulnerable to access Supermarket priority delivery slots.

    I am asthmatic myself and have been lucky enough to get online delivery but I complete agree with you.

    Not schools first. Ease restrictions, like opening some businesses, allow more people to go out through choice and wait and see what the consequences are, but do not use children as guinea pigs. Home schooling should remain an option for children and their parents if this is the preferred option at the moment.
