Many restaurants have poured thousands of dollars into making outdoor dining areas both comfortable and safe - amid expert warnings that some structures could pose higher risk for virus' transmission than others. NYC: Restaurants around the United States are getting creative with their outdoor dining set-ups as winter draws near. In Los Angeles, which has not permitted indoor dining of any kind since the spring, a ban on all outdoor dining is set to go into effect on Wednesday night. San Francisco's rules for outdoor dining areas are far less extensive than the Big Apple's, in part because temperatures are typically much more mild so heavy insulation isn't as necessary.

The Government has attempted to resume contact with the support group representing women affected by the CervicalCheck controversy after talks on the planned tribunal collapsed last week. Sources have said the group is unwilling to resume talks unless there are substantive solutions on the table around the issue of the statute of limitations and recurrence of cancer. The support group say some women may be left outside the tribunal as the two-year statute of limitations has passed for a small number of women. The group also want women who suffer a recurrence of cancer to be allowed to return to the tribunal. When asked if Mr Donnelly has requested the tribunal to resume its work, a spokeswoman said she could not comment.

THE full cost of the coronavirus crisis has been laid bare with the UK economy set to shrink by its largest amount in 300 years, one million people forecast to lose their jobs and borrowing to reach levels not seen in peacetime. Deplorable indeed.”Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, also took to social media, branding the aid cut “shameful and wrong”. He explained he could “not justify a significant, across-the-board” pay increase for all public sector workers given the difficulties faced in the private sector. Alison Thewliss for the SNP said it felt like the Government was “punishing people for working in the public sector”. A public sector pay freeze takes £4bn out of the economy, squeezes living standards and starves the economy of investment at the very worst possible time.”
