Unique Vibes: Every Wednesday!
Latest News in London – Lockdown Life
There has been talks of a five days release from restrictions so that extended families can celebrate together, but in doing so it could mean England will have an extra month in lockdown.
Senior Medical Director / Adviser Dr Susan Hopkins informed us that: “We are very keen that we have a Christmas as close to normal as possible, it requires all of us to make every effort over this national restriction period and even in early December to get the cases as low as possible and to reduce the risk of transmission within households and between families”
Dr Susan Hopkins added: “This would come at the cost of tougher rules before and after 25 December, initially claiming that every day of relaxed measures would need to be counterbalanced with two days of restrictions.
