On Friday 13 March, the news suggested we should be more careful with our social contact. We were all discouraged from going to large social gatherings. 

The children I teach were suddenly more aware of washing their hands and keeping clean. The idea of washing your hands to the song "Happy Birthday" was floated, to ensure you staid at the tap long enough to wash the virus away.

On Sunday, Hil and I cycled to the sea front. We enjoyed a beer at a table by the beach outside the "Tempest" PH. There were not that many people there, but that may have been simply because it's March and still a little chilly.
