Health experts will then assess the latest outbreak data.
“We’re at a critical crossroads right now, and on the one hand we’re going to have to consider whether we’re going to adjust the current measures when the holidays come, but on the other we’re going to have to think about the impact of changing those measures,” Peloni said. We need to plan for longer-term summer goals. “This partly reflects the difficulties facing the government.
