About 1/3rd of Leeds’ citizens are wearing facemasks on public transport and in shops. I recently had a mini-break in Liverpool, travelled by coach and I was the only passenger wearing a mask. I made my choice; other passengers made theirs. I don’t mind wearing a mask at the AGM.
I hope the IoP won’t be directing spotlights at the audience and view screens as done previously. We’ve been spoilt by meetings on Zoom and YouTube, seeing the speakers’ excellent slides in all their glory, instead of squinting through the Bortle 9+ glare of the brightly lit lecture theatre trying to glimpse the washed out screens. Heaven help a speaker who shows a deep sky image. Please switch off the spotlights and dim the theatre lighting during presentations.
