Pubs. Working in the trade, there is a lot of concern that Saturday was the wrong day to open. We are leaving opening till Monday 13th July in Billericay. If you are planning a visit to the pub , I know a lot are not opening on that Saturday. So check before you go. Most are closing before 10p.m. What rumour is going round is that Weteherpoons plan to open at 8 a.m. on Saturday 4th July. Unbelivable we need a 14/15 hour drinking day, after 3 months closed. Most non spoons pubs will have table service only, and a few I know a limited time either open or you are allowed to stay at the pub. Yes I am going to the pub with the missus that day, but I am away in Caister/ Great Yarmouth, so should be a little more space. Yes I do have contact's to get a decent pint of local real ale sitting outside a pub.
Despite the fact Florida is having a surge in new positive cases in many parts, they still dont want us going there yet.Doesn’t surprise me at all, with our numbers I don’t see how any country would allow UK flights in.
I don’t want to **** on your chips mate, but I think America could be in for a bit of a shock.Despite the fact Florida is having a surge in new positive cases in many parts, they still dont want us going there yet.
Virgin announced few weeks ago, they were resuming flights to Miami & Orlando on July 20th.
Last week, this was put back to Aug 20th & 24th respectively.
Flights to NY are still ontrack from 20th July with Delta from Heathrow. I've got flights booked end of Sept, fingers x it will happen.

Vegas is taking a bit of a hit over the last week or so, with their rate of infection increasing steadily again.

Govenor Sisolak only made it mandatory to wear face coverings in public, a few days ago.
Half the strip’s Casino’s have reopened, and the ones that were scheduled to reopen in the coming days, are now being put on hold for the time being.
At least one restaurant has been forced to close again, due to an outbreak of covid amoung staff, and now the unions are getting involved and threatening to have their members go on strike.
It would appear that the feeling over there, (in Vegas at least) is that a second wave is imminent.
Fingers crossed for all of us, that it doesn’t happen
I don’t know if it’s factual, but there seems to be rumours flying around that one of the most expensive Vegas resorts - The Cosmopolitan - is giving it’s workers a choice; come to work, or get fired. That is despite there being an outbreak in that hotel where - again, rumours - nearly 50 staff have tested positive for the virus.America are in real trouble. Workers have always been treated poorly in the US with very few rights but they are now being forced to put their lives at risk just to survive.
It is going to turn very ugly.
Bloody China AGAIN! Seriously, is it the wet markets?It would seem that not only do we have to live with COVID-19 which, I fear we may have a surge of come the winter months when we all return indoors with closed windows we now have to contend with more aggressive Swine Flu this year.
By all accounts it is in China at the moment and is causing some concerns.
I fear this may be a hard winter
Just read through the first 11 pages on this thread from late Feb / early March. Obviously hindsight is 20-20 but this one post did stand out as particularly wide of the mark.Considering what? That the media have hyped up the British public into a frenzy again.
4 people in the UK have died due to Corona virus and they were possibly ill with a low immune system in the first place. 4 people out of some 60 odd million
1000's die of Cancer, malnutrition, Influenza and other viral infections every day. I'm not concerned with Corona Virus in the slightest
