Just two days left until it becomes compulsory for us to wear a face-covering or mask in stores, and I’m not seeing any evidence that people are proactively changing their behaviour. Earlier today, in Asda, I didn’t see a single person wearing a face covering of any kind.
I struggle to understand it. It’s such a small thing to do. Whether you agree with the science or not – at the very least it shows some respect for the people who have to work in the stores with thousands of people milling past them.
It did feel weird at first, but I’m used wearing one now. I feel safer with the mask on than with it off, even if the purpose of it isn’t to keep me safe. I’ll feel much safer when everyone else is wearing one.
Don’t be a twat. Wear a mask.
