bee Posted July 15, 2020 #1 Share Posted July 15, 2020 At the moment I feel that this is an unnecessary and draconian move - that will loose the Government Support... After everything - to bring this in now feels like a backward step to me... I understand that there are arguments for and against but I think making it mandatory will not sit well with many of the public... There are lots of variables to all this.... like how efficient are masks anyway...?..... or are they more symbolic.....? Does a beard make a mask useless because a virus can easily get in or out...? Does wearing a mask cause harm in terms of breathing in more carbon dioxide - breathing in less oxygen and normal fresh air...? Why do some people think they need to wear a mask when they are alone in a car, walking over fields and /or in open spaces...? etc Random link for basic information (BBC) Wearing a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England is to become mandatory from 24 July. Those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100, the government has announced. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said it would "give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops". The move will bring England into line with Scotland and other major European nations like Spain, Italy and Germany. Since mid-May, members of the public have been advised to wear coverings in enclosed public spaces, where they may encounter people they would not usually meet. Mask-wearing has been compulsory on public transport in England and at NHS facilities across the UK since 15 June. 2 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
