Did people really think that the vaccine would mean that everything would just go back to normal? Covid mutates in the same way that the Flu does. A vaccine doesn't make it go away, it will always be here, like the Flu. Sometimes the vaccine will not be great at protecting against different strains, again, like the Flu. It just happens that Covid is making people a lot more ill than the Flu is.
The situation at the minute is a lot better than it was a year or so ago. People are able to be back at work, to see their families and have some sort of semi normal life, and not be in isolation. Though even in the job I do, I am wary of being in large groups or meeting lots of strangers where I have no idea of where they have been or what they may have. Social distancing is still a thing. It's not unreasonable to understand where Steps and their management are coming from. I mean, Lee has a new baby, they all have kids and families they have to protect as well as themselves and the crew and the tour.
Saying all that I think that at least a partial refund maybe should have been offered at least to appease those that thought they could sit on the their laps while they signed their entire singles and Steps dolls collection.
I really really wanted to do a meet and greet but in the back of mind I knew that this would be what would happen.
