When will we seniors enjoy the end of lock down safely?

Hi

Following our PAIL committee meeting today it became clear that for many older Londoners it is still not seen as safe to go about our business as normal yet. There are a lot of concerns around travelling by public transport, about the safety of going back into town for shopping, socialising or working / volunteering. The new COVID D strain seems to be very toxic and infectious and there is doubt about how effective different vaccines are to protect us from it, while the government message seems to chop and change.

Therefore we are hoping to try to raise these concerns with the key decision makers and try to pull together both an online guide about coming out of lock down plus we hope to organise some webinars with experts around how best to overcome the very real barriers many of us face in feeling safe to engage fully in London's life again. For more details go on the www.pailondon.org.uk site.
