I am still putting on a mask when I go into a shop etc, even just for my morning newspaper at our local 'One Stop'. Infection rate on Wirral is now about 420 per 100,000
Infection rate in this part of London is similar: 418.9 cases per 100,000 and rising. The rate has almost doubled in recent weeks. We were intending to visit Birmingham for a couple of days this week, but went off the idea when we heard that only 55% of Brummies have been vaccinated.
There was a time when we would check train services or car parking before visiting somewhere new - now we check infection levels and vaccine rates.
The rate round here is 826 per 100,000. We have 10 schools in a 1 mile radius.
