The funding will also help pay for the Covid-19 mitigation measures that we will need to put in place to ensure Cropredy 2021 is as safe as possible for everyone – our crews, traders, artists and of course you, our loyal festival-goers.

Do you think we'll all be expected to wear masks? There HAS to be a Cropredy one!

What do I think about Covid restrictions ten months from now ?

I've had a good old rummage around the internet over the last few months - not Facebook - and I don't like what I found.

One part of that is this, from California, and similar to the sort of thing we can 'look forward to', wherever we may live or whatever we may do :

Even if a vaccine exists by then, only the wealthy will have access to it.  Personally, I suspect unsocially distanced gathering of 20k will be a thing of distant memory.... But I'm always a glass half empty kind of a guy!  Remember when we thought gigs would obviously be happening again properly this Autumn?

I can't anticipate what's happening next week far less next August.  However I have a neighbour who manages a theatre and one of the pieces of research they have been using to risk assess events shows that aerosols from singers projecting their voices can travel 9 metres.

That would make for some very different socially distanced performances - one half of a duo stage left and the other stage right ?  Its also one of the factors against live sports crowds.

I can't see masks working - unless we are all going to drink 6x through a straw...

I think there will have to be some kind of effective treatment or vaccine before any live events get anything like back to normal frustrating though that might be.

Even if a vaccine exists by then*1, only the wealthy will have access to it*2.  Personally, I suspect unsocially distanced gathering of 20k will be a thing of distant memory....

*1 - From what I am hearing it almost certainly will
*2 - No, it will be made available to everybody. There is no sense in restricting it. The economy cannot recover if half the population are still susceptible to infection. It is not in the interest of the wealthy to hobble the workforce on which they rely for their wealth.

Two caveats however. 1. The infrastructure may not be there to roll out the vaccine to sufficient numbers of the population in time for large summer events to be organised without risk. 2. Unless vaccination is enforced (which won't happen), a significant number of people may choose not to have it, which gives organisers of any event something of a headache in terms of ensuring it is safe.

Of course the infrastructure won't be there...have you been paying attention recently?   Wink Smiley

In any case it's almost certainly irrelevant.  I'd love your 1) to be true, but very much suspect it won't be.  Most virologists I'm reading talk about 3 to 4 year lead ins to vaccines like this, if indeed they can be created in the first place.  Most Big Pharma capitalists I'm fairly sure suggest otherwise.  I know who'd I'm more likely to believe.

However, this is a bulletin board and we don't gave to follow Winston's beliefs.

Which is why there will always be discussion and 'speculation'.  That is literally why it exists...a bulletin board without discussion would be a very dull place to be.
