Re: Will you be going to the pub tomorrow?

You're not at risk? Cool, would you like to share the reasons why with the rest of us. Cheers. Ok, I am fit and healthy, and thus at minimal risk from C19.

Re: Will you be going to the pub tomorrow?

I suppose you could say it's not 'your' risk, it's the risk of you passing it on to someone vulnerable. Absolutely correct. And if I was at risk, like my mum, I wouldn’t be going near the pub. But I’m not at risk, and I can only assume that anyone else in the pub is likewise not at risk. If they ar...

Re: Will you be going to the pub tomorrow?

Yes, I’ll pop down to my local. Not being in the ‘dangerous category’ in any way, I fail to see why it shouldn’t be life as normal. If I was at risk then I’d have a different view, but I’m not.

Some might see that harsh or callous. I just see it as managing risk - something I do daily.

I’d recommend using a laptop / computer camera, rather than your phone. You’ll get a little more functionality especially if you’re the host. That said, if you are on a phone then I’d suggest keeping it plugged in whilst you are on it. I’ve found zoom blitzed my battery on longer than 40 min sessions.
