Seems like this is the direction of travel
Once we achieve herd immunity through vaccines we need to start reducing restrictions and getting on with our lives, not adding new ones.
Completely practical, test takes less than 20 seconds and you have the results in 10/30 minutes. Could easily do this 2/3 days before attending a public event. Clearly its never going to be 100% effective but it will make a differenceHow recent would you expect the test result to be? Do you think that’s practical?

Agree, although both mentioned were trending upwards pre-pandemic, Covid has simply accelerated them.As a short term measure on the trial events, which will hopefully lead to a return to normality in June, then it makes sense, beyond that once we revert to full attendance then it's going to be impossible to enforce especially for those who have not been vaccinated due to age or health restrictions, we obviously have to be careful and the process will be ongoing but the noises from PHE seem to be that this will be the last of the large scale Covid related lockdowns, I think the adjustment will take some time to get used to and it will be interesting to see whether any lock down norms will continue back into normal life, I see a lot of remote working practices and a continuation of online retail.
No, never going to completely take away the risk, but regular testing is a very cheap, easy and effective way to track and stop the spread. Only suggested 2/3 days because its what is currently suggested by other industries, but again it could be on the morning of attending an event. The more people test, the easier it is to stop transmissionAnd then so you isolate for those 2/3 days?
