There is surely something odd about the criteria for re-opening. Where we are in East London, everything has now pretty well re-opened – chicken shops, cafes, food shops, hardware stores, bicycle repair shops – and the street outside is busy as normal. I now read that commercial galleries and auction houses can re-open on June 1st, subject to the rules of social distancing. But museums, cathedrals, concert halls and churches – great cultural and public therapeutic spaces – which ostensibly can be visited relatively safely (it’s all relative), with high ceilings and established conventions of social distancing, remain shuttered and closed. I suppose it’s a reasonable way of re-booting the economy, but it doesn’t feel like the best way of controlling the spread of the disease, nor rational in terms of the risks involved.
