There should be no further reduction of covid procedures on June 21. If there is we will be heading to more restrictions within weeks. Until Both jabs is at 70% then things should stay as they are. Otherwise by august we will be in trouble again.
A suggestion I have heard and agree with is postponing the June 21st relaxations to the end of the school summer term. By then many more people will have head jabs, and there will be less human mixing once the schools break up.

I'm the opposite of people enjoying table service. I go to a local pub every Sunday and I've never been able to successfully order from the app yet, something goes wrong every time. Eventually we give up and try to flag down a passing bar person. This weekend we were told if we didn't order via the app then our wait for drinks would be upwards of an hour and those around us who'd ordered via the app were still waiting for their drinks over half an hour later. So we promptly left. Roll on when we can take control again and go to the bar when we want a drink.
I think it's bad when organisations show blatant favouritism to people with smartphones. :(

We've had a few issues with the apps, both signing in and placing orders, one was in a 3 rosette restaurant bar. The experience has been a bit hit and miss.
I don't think we've quite mastered the table service just yet, nowhere near comparable to the French for instance.

Things I will miss "Not having Colds"

Having spent 2020 and the first part of 2021 cold-germ free, catching a cold from my 5 year old niece was a bit of a shock.

Even though the cold has just about gone, the cough remains and now people on the tram to & from work are looking suspiciously at me :)
