Rory asks the following questions about the wearing of masks…
On the 24th July, so next Friday now new legislation in the UK means the wearing of face masks will become mandatory in shops as in it will become law no choice you have to do it. Failure to comply will result in a £100 fine for non-compliance and will be enforced by the police as well as staff in the shops themselves.
Now the question is actually two fold about masks with a twist.
1] Are you currently wearing face masks when you go out into public wherever you are in the world and 2] what type of masks are you wearing? [As in practical or stylish?]
Also how do you feel about the wearing of masks? Do you see it as a protection or an infringement on your civil rights?
I do wear a mask when I go out and about. I wear them in shops, and on public transport. Or in a crowded place. But then, its mandetory here now.
Failure to wear a mask in a store, or on public transport automatically means a 2.500 euro fine and you could be sent to prison for up to six months.
I think its better to wear one as its better to be safe and keep others safe…better to be safe than sorry IMO!
I wear either a disposable mask like they use in a hospital, or else I do have some cotton ones that you can rewash although I almost prefer the disposable ones.
Its hard to breathe when wearing them but I persevere.
I am tired of people banging on about their rights, do they want to get sick, or worse still pass something on to others? Whose rights are they infringing on then?
