Even after government rules that shoppers must wear masks in supermarkets, there is always the small minority who walk around without one (and will probably say it causes them distress or whatever if questioned). The idea is that if everyone wears them, it will limit the potential spread, so we are helping each other out. Most can’t seem to get that into their head (or too selfish). It’s a conformity/conspiracy issue - “we are not doing it because you say we have to.” “Govt. are controlling us through fear.” Etc. Etc. What I don‘t get is the amount (around various different supermarkets) of staff who don’t wear any PPE whilst on duty? How can you expect shoppers to abide when the staff are not doing it? I’ve not been to a supermarket since the new 08/08 update to the rules to see if that has made any difference.
I'll never understand why shop staff don't have to wear PPE either. Perhaps it is because they would have to wear it for 8 - 10 hours straight. The places that do wear PPE I'll happily shop there. At least they are making an effort to protect their customers.
I went shopping the other day and I kept my mask on for the duration. In shops, in shopping centres and outside on the street. One I have it on and I'm comfortable I'd rather just keep it on.
I popped down my Dad's the other day. Mrs rang me and asked me to pick something up from the shop on the way back. I couldn't because I didn't take my mask (it is a pretty quiet village).
