SafetyNet 582

Welcome to the July 1 edition of SafetyNet.  

Those getting the journal via email will notice that instead of posting the journal on Wednesday afternoon, this week, and for the next few weeks, we are testing a different post time: first thing Thursday morning. Let us know what you think - and we'll keep an eye on 'open rates'.

The news this week has again been around COVID - and in particular the growing number of outbreaks around the country which have led to further criticisms of the vaccine rollout and lack of supply. These in turn have led to announcements by the Prime Minister to make vaccines mandatory for certain workers.
