The Second Lockdown in the UK


Forums Admin
We are going into a countrywide lockdown again, starting Thursday November 4 until December 2. It will not be as severe as the first one in March through June, and will be shorter. Our Covid numbers are rising and projections look like it will be worse than earlier this year. Even where we live, in the southwest, numbers are rising when we were not really hit before.

No travel out of the UK, no travel within the UK, non-essential shops closed, restaurants and pubs closed except for takeout. Schools stay open this time. No socialising but it is a bit more open than the first lockdown (you can meet-up with one person outside). Outdoor exercise is encouraged!! - as it should be.

We’ve been living lockdown-like anyway so it won’t effect us much, but it will be a big change for many.

Hi Pauline
Yes we're in a similar position of already fitting within these same restrictions with the exception of having met one household once, outside in the garden between the lockdowns.

A key relaxation vs. the earlier lockdown for us is the ability to travel to work where this can't be done at home, as my partner does some conservation work on an old farm that is now a retreat. It's actually very good work for her mental well-being, so she would have resented losing that.
