Business recovery after relaxation?

Commenting to the Warrington Guardian following publication of the Government's 50-page COVID-19 recovery strategy document, Liberal Democrat Group Leader on Warrington Borough Council, Cllr Bob Barr said:

During the pandemic crisis, which the UK entered inadequately prepared, the 'difficult decision' to lock down was relatively straightforward and relied on clear messaging about risk. In Warrington businesses, the voluntary sector, Council employees and care and health professionals responded impressively. In particular much has been done, successfully, to protect the most vulnerable.

However, coming out of the crisis is going to be much harder. The government guidance is of little help. Warrington businesses, carers and individuals are being told, effectively, to assess the risk themselves and follow "common sense". We fear that the most economically and physically vulnerable will find that hardest to do and will suffer as a result.
