We wore masks properly throughout our time in Crete and in the U.K. Not this “mask over mouth only”, “mask on chin” or “no mask” stuff you often see in Crete (more so than where we live in the U.K.).
Our house in Crete is in a field - cramped housing is likely a major cause of transmission given the places in the U.K. where infections have been going up recently. The isolation of the house and basic sense made social distancing easier to achieve..
I haven’t been to a mass gathering for a very long time. I did get taken to a football match at Fulham in January but that’s a somewhat loose description of “crowd”.
My daughters follow social distancing with great attention - the younger one didn’t go out of the house, apart from to go rowing with her sister, from March to July. Not all young people like to party in mass groups.
We continue to social distance now back in the U.K.
There is probably a balance between going back to how things were and never travelling or mixing again. Both the extremes will reduce life expectancy either because of the virus or because of the economic impact. Finding that balance is hard and I don’t envy anyone in government trying to do so at the moment.
