We ask the people of Liverpool: Is it the right time to end all COVID restrictions?

The government has set out ‘living with Covid’ strategy that will see all remaining legal coronavirus restrictions scrapped from this week, including self-isolation and free testing.

You will no longer be required to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19 or if you have had contact with someone who has tested positive.

The move has been criticised by Liverpool Medical Committee secretary Dr Rob Barnett who insists the move, originally pencilled in for the end of March, comes too early.

So we hit the streets to ask the people of Liverpool, what do you think of the changes?

‘We've got to learn to live with it’

Francesca tells us if this is the right time to end all Covid restrictions

Francesca says: "It's just another disease as far as I'm concerned, and we've got to learn to live with it. We've got to cope with it and do whatever is necessary we have to protect ourselves."

‘I think people should still isolate’

Chris tells us if this is the right time to end all Covid restrictions

Chris says: "I think people should still isolate because if you tested positive and you're not isolating, it means you're going out in the community, and people are just going to get sick."

‘I think it should stay the way it has been for another two months’

Nicola tells us if this is the right time to end all Covid restrictions

Nicola says: "I think it should stay the way it has been for another two months, at least, in my opinion. My future mother-in-law is a registered nurse; she's worked in care homes on the NHS front line, and she agrees with me."
