The roadmap back to normal

Post by Richard Petty » Mon Feb 22, 2021 4:03 pm

So we now have the basis for the route back to normal, the dates for steps 2,3 and 4 are targets based on everything going to plan.

Step One
8th March - Schools back and you can meet one person outside of your household outdoors

29th March - The rule of 6 returns for outdoor gatherings including private gardens (two households can meet outdoors even if more than 6) and outdoor sport facilities like tennis courts can open.

Step Two
12th April (at the earliest) - Shops, Barbers, Gyms, and outdoor hospitality (with rule of 6) can reopen. Also Holiday Lets for one household can open.

Step Three
17th May (at the earliest) - Indoor hospitality can open (with rule of 6), Hotels can open and spectators will be allowed back in limited numbers again.

Step Four
21st June (at the earliest) - Restrictions should mostly be lifted and life a lot more like normal :D

Yes I noticed that as well. Its unlikely to be delayed because The Euro' start on the 12th June and the first game at Wembley is on the 13th when England play Croatia.

Bearing in mind our season does not end until the 29th May I cant see how they are going to be able to hold the Play Off final at Wembley as they wont be able to get the earlier rounds played in time.

So we might get to see our last home game of the season on May 22nd, or another on the 25th May if they rearrange Chesterfield or Eastleigh for that date

They can squeeze these games in if they tried I reckon Richard, they can do anything when it suits, the FA Cup always makes me laugh since they started the replay 10 day nonsense instead of the old 3 day thing for example you could have a 4th qualifying round replay between someone like Notts county v Wrexham played 3 days later and yet in the first round because they’re league clubs due to buying promotion crap like Salford v Crawley would be 10 days later

Update on my earlier information, it has been confirmed that International Air Travel will not resume until Step 3 (17th May) at the earliest. So Summer and Autumn holidays (if you feel like risking it) are a possibility but nothing before then.

I do think that date could get put back though for some countries because not all other countries are on track for the high level of vaccine rollout that we are seeing in the UK. If high infection rates or additional variants are moving freely in other countries then there would have to be restrictions left in place such as quarantine to stop travellers bringing those variants back to the UK

All of this relaxing of current restrictions will rely so much on the public doing their bit. Having the jab, keep social distancing, observe any lockdown restrictions that are applicable both now and when they’re eased.
This easing isn’t an excuse to jump the gun ‘because a couple of weeks early won’t matter’. Normality (or as near as we’re going to get to it in the near future) is starting to be within reach, let’s not screw it up now because of impatience.

In that case we’re snookered then birdy, I can see quite a few misses before we’re back to normality 🎱

You could well be right, Bob. We’ll just have to 🤞 a lot.
