Q. Where do you live and how do you feel about it?

My area has been a Covid hotspot during the pandemic - I have been shielding throughout as I am clinically vulnerable (although not recognised by my GP and the government) and have not succumbed to Covid-19, but I know of two people in my circle who were so ill they needed critical care intervention otherwise they would have died, plus 4 others who contracted it but didn't require hospitalisation. In my local area, the community appeared split along the lines of those that followed the guidelines and those that didn't to the point they didn't appear to give a flying fig about it - freely mixing households despite the guidance, which I found really infuriating.
