My understanding of the new measures is that most of them are due to kick in by April 21st (and a few others like theatres opening up again and football matches by July).If the scientists had their way we'd have restrictions until the end of the year and never totally release us at all. Even Patrick Vallance at the press conference last night said we may have to have some restrictions in the winter/early next year.
You simply cannot live life like that. Life revolves around social contact, personal responsibility and perception of risk. Don't feel safe in somewhere that's open don't go, carry on keeping your distance and wear a mask if you like. But you cannot keep this restrictions forever.
Social contact. if it involves the potential spreading of new variants of the virus would be potentially lethal for some.
I'll go on wearing a mask in public as long as I'm legally obliged to (as in Spain or France).
Social distancing and other safety measures are likely to be with us for some time to come.
