I think we're going to be stuck here for a while. It's encouraging, though, given most people seem to have decided Covid was 'over' on 19th July. We're nearly a month on from that, and cases haven't really gone up by very much.
The proof of the pudding will be in the schools going back.
My performance diary is looking healthy (in the post-pandemic sense of 'healthy') for the rest of 2021 and into 2022, and my face to face students are starting to come back. I haven't been pinged. Yet.
