Guided by the science! Or not? SAGE has stated that ministers should be planning for a huge rise in Covid cases as schools reopen. The governments plan seems to delegate responsibility to schools without giving them any advice or powers. So no masks or bubbles, no advice on contingency plans for an outbreak other than – schools may contact public health authorities if certain thresholds are met. Does this mean that Williamson is on some extended safari somewhere secret and must not be disturbed? Maybe like Raab’s £40.000 holiday.
