UK is OPEN from AUG. 2nd to fully vaccinated adults (children exempt) from amber and green countries in the EU and also USA. We hope Canada and other amber countries follow soon. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING NOW ?
ANSWER : VACCINATIONS. 70% of UK adults are fully vaccinated and 88% have had their first jab. Vaccinations started in Dec 2020 and the NHS (with military advice) gave them in strict age order starting with over 90’s and the most vulnerable. 18/30’s are currently being vaccinated.
” Thanks to the protective wall of the vaccination programme, we have made huge advances”. (Sajid Javid, UK Health Secretary ) . The pandemic will not go away but “there is a much wider element of public immunity ” and “this is the permanent route out…” (Prof. B. Wren , vaccinology professor, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). The young unvaccinated will continue be most likely to test positive but vaccinations should be complete soon. Boosters will be given from September.
SO : assume life is near “normal” : theatres, clubs, sports venues with full specator numbers are open. Some excellent productions soon to be on stage both musicals and dramas.
BUT masks and social distancing may still be mandatory in some areas, most likely public transport, medical centres and some shops . ” We cannot eradicate the virus —so if not now—when?” (Sajiv Javid on when to relax the rules). This is life WITH the virus and its variants.
So – better times are here at last . . If you have queries about an upcoming booking , do ask. Important dates for 2021 are : THEATRES open from now on ; the Chelsea Flower Show has been postponed to September ;London Marathon 3 October.
SPECIAL OFFERS. We have good discounts for bookings for Aug/Sep 2021. Central London 1 bedrooms from £75 per night , 2 bedrooms from £115 per night . For details ask us by email now .
