I think [social distancing] will remain 'best practice' for a long time, if not forever.

Will it, or does it just feel like it'll be ever-present after a year of experiencing nothing but this?
I know it's not exactly the same, but pre-2020, in extreme cases, people died of bad cases of the flu in winter and this was accepted as a sad inevitability. You didn't see people sitting metres away from each other every time the weather dipped below a certain temperature just in case one of their colleagues had it.
I'm not downplaying the seriousness of COVID-19, especially as I personally am one of the people deemed at high risk should I contract it, but now there are vaccines, and once the people who are offered them/want to take them have them (as per flu vaccines every year), I can't see why there'd be an expectation that social distancing would need to continue, certainly not forever.


Indeed. Social distancing won’t be in forever, in fact the government has already announced a review to work out when it can be scrapped.

On the desk, looks nice. But what’s with those weird moving rectangles on the backdrop?
