I've been back working in the building for 4 weeks. We have to show notification of negative LFT to access the building and mask in common areas but in the classrooms I'm still face to face with 80-odd people for hours at a time. So far only one of them has gone off with confirmed covid, with a handful of others off 'sick' at any time. I'm encouraging anyone unwell to get a PCR but only one has sent in a negative result so far. I'm more than a little suspicious that only 1 has covid, given the general prevalence and age range (18-25 with most at the lower end). I don't know if this is because of the ineffectiveness of LFT in picking up cases, or that people aren't doing the tests properly or at all. Obviously you don't actually need to do a test to upload a negative result.
A couple of weeks ago I cancelled a trip to see my dad for the weekend, he'd just had his booster but too recent to be at full effectiveness. It just feels like too much of a risk. It's a little frustrating not being able to control my own isolation, like I've been used to doing while WFH. After 4 weeks I do still get a bit euphoric and occasionally overwhelmed from being around people.
