I must admit I’m suddenly having second thoughts about getting onto busses or the tube. Before we first heard of the Omicron variant a few days ago, I had grown fairly relaxed about using public transport. As I’ve said before, it’s not really practical for me to wear a mask, but I nonetheless think they are vital if we’re ever going to get over this pandemic. If you can wear a mask, you should. The problem is, these days, everyone seems to have grown so lackadaisical about mask wearing, these days I struggle to see more than two people wearing one on a bus these days. The result is I have begun to think twice about going on my usual trundles, preferring to keep within easy powerchair distance, or not going out at all.
