    I say keep things as they are as we could blow progress made so far

    Will be a blow to business but least not stop/start like before. 

    Having a soften gives confusion. (bad enough as it is with advisory vs policy vs rules)

    It's not going to make much difference to me either way.  But I think they should be able to ease restrictions in some areas, especially outdoor attractions etc.  If they wait further into the summer, seasonal businesses will lose so much money they may not survive the winter.  It needs to be a balance, as it always has needed, they'll never please everyone.  As much as I hate doing it, I think masks in crowded shops should remain for now though so I'm not for lifting ALL restrictions.
