    Are you serious? Key workers can't vote for it having an impact on their lives? I am a mental health nurse and this has been such a stressful time as loads of my colleagues have had to be off while I man the fort to manage the anxieties of the people I nurse, but then I can't even see my friends and family to destress afterwards. Yeah that's a complete walk in the park...

    This poll is for people who are staying at home, it would be a completely different poll if they were asking the effect of still working. 
    I am still able to work but i enjoy my job so it's nice to not be stuck at home all the time and still able to go to work as normal.

    As @Takmon says, being a Keyworker, you aren't locked down

    Im also a key worker and tbh Im finding this all very easy tbh, because I am still getting out and getting on with work. Now if I was stuck at home 24/7 my answer would be completely different
    if you lend someone £20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    It’s been brilliant. Home all day with no work to do playing video games. What’s not to like?
