Dreams of a respite from Covid over Christmas were cruelly dashed yesterday, with news of a return to Level 5 restrictions, but there are reasons to be hopeful.

Since restaurants reopened, I have dined out twice. Lunch with a friend, on the terrace of one city centre establishment, was relaxed and enjoyable. A separate dinner, inside a packed and cavernous space, was not a comfortable experience, however.
