@jayeless Yeah, I share your concern about people getting together even thought they shouldn't (although I'm seeing this already anyway so 🤷). But it is good to see some restrictions being lifted.

@lmika Yeah, people in my neighbourhood are definitely already gathering in groups much larger than 5 adults from 2 households, and have been for ages. I'm personally unsure that our vaccination rates are enough, but I think the government had to do something because if the rules are too different from the situation on the ground, people just won't even try to abide by them. Hopefully this minor easing of restrictions doesn't have too much effect on our ability to contain the virus. @Miraz
