Facial coverings

The only ones I've found that are good are the proper face fitting ones, with a valve and a wire for your nose bridge.

But we're not supposed to wear valved masks. Yet I'm seeing more people wearing face shields and masks that are open under the chin, which has the same effect.
You mean the masks that actually work? ;) lol

Surgical face masks have initially always been used just to stop blood splash. I have very little faith in them given they hardly form any type of fit/seal around your mouth.

However at least the evidence is semi-reassuring as asian countries seem to use similar masks (albiet theres look far better quality and thicker).

If it flips up or down and makes a sound when it does it, I'm totally jealous.

If not.

But people are still doing this.

I'm also noticing a large increase in exemption neckbands: a month ago I never saw any.

Yellow and green they are. There's probably some place you can order one, no questions asked.

Cynical? Moi?
Friend of mine just got one. He has no disabilities or health conditions that require exemption. Just doesn't like wearing them, so he got both a neckband and a badge. So I don't believe most of the people wearing them actually have/need exemption, they just don't like wearing them.

I would agree.

If that's legal then there is no need for all the anti mask protesters to protest, everyone dont ir want to wear a mask can just get an exemption badge/neckband.

Absolutely anyone that has a debit card or credit card can buy it. No proof of any disability or exemption certificate required.

Note - I'm not endorsing it or it's use. I'm just pointing out that absolutely anyone, with no proof whatsoever, can get an exemption card/lanyard/badge.

I cant see any ID, photo or anything so it looks very possible to clone.

There is a market out there.. all the anti mask protesters would be a target market.

Thought as much.

Just went in Aldi though and got to the sweets aisle and realised I want wearing a mask.

I put one on from my pocket. Next to the Durex in case I see anyone I know

Very rare for me to forget but of course nobody challenges you. Especially at fifteen and a half stone.

So why am I buying sweets? Exactly. :rotfl:

55p a pop? If people are so desperate to catch COVID I'll only charge 50p to cough in their faces if / when I ever get it.

Yes, I know you wear them to protect others.
