The government position in this and our previous lockdowns is to not worry because essential services including supermarkets are still going to be open.
And I have to say things have run surprisingly well. The supermarkets have stayed open, along with the mom and pop shops. The buses still run. And all the free health care is still there and still free.
But this time, delta variant time, is harder. Some infectious people visited our local store, potentially exposing almost all the staff. They are self-isolating for 14 days, so no store. We’ll have to go down the road!
