I get that sense in and around where I live.Maybe elderly/vulnerable people continuing to be very careful? When the virus first hit they would have been packed into pubs, churches etc and allowing grandkids climb all over them. I get the impression most elderly people have radically changed their behaviour and will continue to do so for a while. Also, care homes have much betted procedures in place to protect them.
Having said all that, once enough young people are infected it’s inevitable that a proportion of the most vulnerable will too.
And shielding may have officially ended, but I (like many others) am continuing to curtail my usual behaviour.
I do worry about the elderly population in particular. My grandmother hasn't left her home since March and you can see it has really take its toll. And we're only in August.
