Travel issues aside, I am simply glad for the UK residents' sake to see that the death rate is falling in the UK. I am hopeful that we will see this start happening around the world soon.
It will be shocking for most of us to transition out of our "covid precautions" way of thinking and it is likely that we won't all be at the same place at the same time in our comfort levels. We will need to continue to show kindness and patience for our fellow humans who may manage things differently than our personal preference.
I know I find weekends particularly troubling. At work (I'm a teacher) I spend all week making sure that students are 100% mask compliant. Not only do they have to wear their masks, they are required to wear them correctly. They manage to do this with very little difficulties. They know the expectations and they follow them. Then the weekend hits and I go out in public and am apalled at the sloppy mask wearing (or not wearing) habits of many of my neighbors. I have to remind myself that the "mask compliance role" is only my job at work. I've learned to bite my tongue and just veer away from people who make me feel uncomfortable with their choices.
It can be frightening for a community (or country) to deal with tourists that don't seem to follow local norms for safety precautions. Our number one goal has to be the health and well-being of society. Travel will follow in its time.
