So, things are getting back to some sort of normality but how are we all feeling about it?
In the treatment room I am still asking clients to wear a face covering where possible, I feel that we are not quite at the stage to remove all of the PPE just yet. I have had 4 clients cancel appointments this week because they have been pinged by the track and trace app which just proves me that sadly COVID hasn’t gone away and is still out there.
People do say to me “you’re young you’d be fine if you got it”, which of course I would hope I would be, but that is not the reason I am being careful. In the tax year 2020/21 I worked 4 months out of 12, how mad is that! I am self-employed, yes I got grants from the Government (thank you!) but those are now gone and if I had to isolate or get COVID that is me closed down again. My partner is also self-employed so we would have ZERO income for the time we would have to be off work.
Therefore, please continue to wear masks, take regular lateral flow tests, social distance. It is not just for you, it is for the people around you – protect everyone and we will get out of this sooner, quicker and safely.
P.S. this isn’t a rant it is just a place for me to express how I feel – others have other options, but this is mine so please respect that 🙂 Be Kind
