Default LU staff shortages?

TfL 'Weekend travel information

The sub-surfaces are reporting "no service due to unavailability of
control room staff"

The effect on the Met and District is slightly less severe than yesterday's
newsletter suggested, so it looks like the staffing situation has improved

I wonder if there's been a wave of Covid infections among control room
staff, who are now having to self-isolate at home? Is TfL perhaps doing
more staff testing?

The W&C is reporting "No service until further notice."

What's up?

The Drain has been and remains shut since the Pandemic started. Ditto the
Night Tube. No word on when either might re-start, but the W&C could
re-start at short notice if required. Essentially, its drivers are shared
with the Central line, which currently needs them much more.

The Night Tube won't return till after London's night life gets back to
normal. Who knows when that might be?
