    I'm still here lol but then I am a Fools Book hater since Day One.
    From time to time FB emails me asking don't I want to join and see
    .....photos - usually the name of a grandchild. If that doesn't show
    how invasive they are, I don't know what will. Same grandchildren
    have been threatened with execution if my name is mentioned, far less
    any pics are there that I am in.

    Our sked here in Canada is different to yours, on as usual at the
    moment. We get two episodes on Friday night, I only watch one and pick
    up the other usually on Sunday nights. I was thinking while I watched
    scenes last night (Carla with Peter in hospital) how used I have
    become to 'social distancing' - didn't seem abnormal that she was
    sitting on a chair remote to him on the bed.

    So it would seem you can teach old dogs new tricks :-

    I am still here and celebrating the good turn Scotland did Wales in the 6N
    last night.

    I think I've finally convinced my partner I do know something about the
    thugby (I had to pack up playing before we met after doing interesting
    things to my left leg...) as the clock turns red last night I am screaming
    at the screen telling the half back to play open side and work it to the
    left wing no11.

    About 3mins into red time they play a long pass to open side and van de
    Mewre (no11) scores the winner...)

    Just to add to Gordon's post - we have got a tribute to Johnny Briggs
    between Mon's episodes, also repeated late night later in the week.

    True - I have become used to people oddly speaking to each other from
    what used to be unusual distances.

    One thing I find odd on Corrie is the way people wear masks (err, sorry
    the UK government refuses to use that word, so it's 'face coverings')
    when they are alone, especially outside, and then take it off while
    talking to someone in the Rovers or the Cafe.

    That is backwards to what people do around here. (Usually) no mask is
    worn when alone, especially outdside, and the mask goes on as one gets
    close to others or enters a building.

    And here to a great extent. We don't have to wear them outside. We do inside, but, back when pubs and cafes were open, it was - wear it until sat down at you table, then take it off. Put it on again if you get up to visit the toilets, or leave.

    So in some cases the scenes are fine. In others I have felt they have taken a slight liberty with the rules because there is a limit to acting with a mask on.

    The scenes in prison I think are fine, they have a screen.

    I find it particularly odd in the hospital scenes. People come in from
    outside and take off their masks yet a hospital is the one place that
    more than any other needs safety rules to be followed!

    It does look odd, doesn't it. They do tend to be in their own bubbles I suppose,
    but it isn't what you expect to see.

    Still, as I said, for the clarity of the scene, taking them off - for our benefit - does make sense!

    Oh, agreed. Given that they stopped filming for a while when the first
    lockdown was in place, using up episodes that were already in the can,
    it seemed as if the Covid restrictions appeared overnight in
    Weatherfield with people suddenly wearing masks and observing social distancing.

    I read somewhere that at the beginning of last year, when plans for the
    60th anniversary were being drawn up, one idea was for Tyrone to come
    down with an infectious disease from the last remnants of Jack's pigeons
    and for it to rapidly spread throughout the Street. The idea was
    rejected as being too far-fetched!

    Yes, I think I saw something like that too! The episode they did do was rather nice though, not as dramatic as the original planned one, and involved bubbles and quarantine to film. I think Kevin and Deb in the freezer involved testing, and the latest close contact is really clever.

    Of course, apart from being behind whatever rules are actually in place, they couldn't be too realistic or no-one on the Street would be doing anything.:-)

    Yes!! I had to visit a hospital back in December and that was one place
    where you kept the mask on all the time - they even issued you a new one
    upon entry.

    I can understand pubs and restaurants where the rule here (when open for seating) was to only remove it to eat or drink, but even then you are
    expected to wear it if you are just talking.
