Based on our experience yesterday, we think the pandemic could last ‘for ever’. We walked around the Square at the end of the morning and we were struck by an almost total absence of masks, and the surprisingly-large number of people apparently ignoring social distancing and the ‘one-way’ system around the mall.
It’s not our job to preach. But, honestly, if people want things to get back to normal as soon as possible, then they have to take the necessary precautions now. In the meantime, as we’re one of those ‘at risk’, we’re going to stay out of the shopping centre as much as possible.
