Regent Street, London, 16 March 2020
In the UK we have been very slow to bring in restrictions on movement and social mixing. In London yesterday, it was quiet but many were still at work and a few were shopping. Apple stores were one of the first to close down, though staff were still on site to help their customers remotely. Many other shops have joined in now, as have theatres and restaurants. We still haven’t moved into total lockdown, but most people are now limiting their mixing.
For me, yesterday was my last day of in-person business meetings for some time, and I was amazed to see an empty Apple shop. The added confusion of reflections in the day’s bright sunshine seemed to go well with how everyone is feeling at the moment.
Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
