Current situation re openings / conditions

I will quickly respond to my learned friends as I know this is a beer forum. And it's hard to explain everything. As Andrew alluded to, I am not suggesting reckless behavior. It's just a tricky balance. Bamberg has had 500 cases since March. And anyway, as I said I was referring to the 'younger' people. The chances of being badly infected whilst being outside are seriously slim. At the end of the day I don't have a (deserved) pension, I have a job. I and other people of my generation have had a pretty shocking time of things compared to the generations after the war. And I'm just trying to a) hold onto my job and b) hold on to the quality of life many people here have enjoyed for 50 years uninterrupted. They have property (something that most of my generation can only dream of without parental help) and jobs for life. Healthcare, benefits, bonuses bla bla. No wonder people are angry when you have these same baby boomers telling us all what to do. But I digress.

I've said since March that reopening could happen quicker if you keep restrictions on the risk groups. Because to be honest, being out in beer gardens this week, they are the ones not adhering to the rules. But that's probably an unfair generalization. If I recall correctly Barry, you were against this 6 weeks or so ago. Sorry, but I don't want to live with the economic fallout of this for the next 10 years (after the last recession), people need to get back to work in countries where it's sensible. 

re masks I agree. Even if they help a bit. Perfect should not be the enemy of the good.
