Everybody is likely to feel differently about the lifting of most coronavirus restrictions in England. Some people might be relieved to see the end of restrictions. Others might be anxious that measures to help protect people are being relaxed. There is no right or wrong way to feel. It is understandable that you might have mixed feelings, particularly if you are clinically extremely vulnerable.
