A key worker & Covid-19 :: Shared Description

I certainly don't consider myself to be a key worker and I confess to not liking the term. However, throughout the Covid-19 pandemic 'lockdown' I had to work and was allowed to travel from home as I was termed a key worker. During March & April 2020 this was at times quite a surreal experience. The images which share this description are a small record of my experiences. Looking back on the early weeks I never quite knew what to expect each time I left home as the railway network adjusted and very few people were out on the roads. I kept expecting someone to come up and challenge me, they never did.

I have also included a few images taken close to home during the lockdown on days when I was not at work, I've tried to ensure that they are clearly linked to the pandemic and not just another photo which happened to be taken during the lockdown. Among the last few images with this shared description are those taken when I went to receive my first vaccination, almost a year to the day after the first lockdown was imposed.

NOTE: For my own record I consider "Day 1" of the lockdown to have been 23 March 2020. I have not made any distinction between the first lockdown and the second. The official government website referred to the second lockdown as 'New National Restrictions'. These ran from 5 November through to Wednesday 2nd December 2020. From this point on I have not kept count of the days as the 'Tier' system was put in place with different regions being placed under different tiers at different times. I for one quickly lost track of what I could and couldn't do.
