I listen to Coronacast too, each morning with my coffee. I keep wondering why this obsession with Dr Swan's gym/no gym? Surely that is a personal decision he has made, based, as he says, on the knowledge & information he has to hand. I think some people are teasing him just a bit.
I've enjoyed listening to him for a long time, the Health Report, in particular. He explains things so well, with the extra added bonus of his voice & accent! 😸
My own PDr has been particularly cautious, but he has spoken to me about going into his place again next year. I'd be travelling again, via taxi, or I've been contemplating, having my helper drive me to & from. My PDr is intensely concerned that the privacy of all patients is maintained. When I went there, & when he would call me, he would lock the front door so no-one could come in from the street, so he has confirmed he would not be comfortable with my helper waiting there while I was in session with him. Even on his porch, it is not comfortable, & patients sometimes will wait out there, too, if they arrive early, & the front door is still locked. I've done that myself. It feels awkward when another patient is there, waiting for my PDr's colleague. So, I don't know, it may be too uncomfortable for other patients if my helper is waiting for me, whether in the small waiting room, or on the porch.
Because of varying attitudes people have, & whatever restrictions will be in place, I'm not assured taxi travel will be reliably available when I need. This is the biggest problem I have with going to see him at his place next year. I have been able to completely avoid the issue while we have sessions using telehealth.
