Have You Purchase a Mask yet or Are You Going to Make One

Ask a Question

Do you plan on getting a face mask? If so are you going to buy one or make one yourself? If you are making one what are you going to use ?

I tried to get some black reusable face masks from Boots earlier in the week. However, I visited six stores and they were all out of stock. I ended up getting a pack of three from an adidas shop that were ยฃ2.50 cheaper than the type I wanted in Boots ๐Ÿ˜ท

We bought a pack but haven't been out other than to the local surgery & chiropractor. They both require you to wear a mask but I wore my snood (from being on the bike) to the surgery last time and they didn't complain - they couldn't really as they didn't even have masks on themselves! ๐Ÿ˜ท ๐Ÿž

That is quite bad really, would think all medics should be wearing them given that they are mixing with sick people!

Lynibis We were shocked and although we collect prescriptions through a window, if we have to wear one then so should they... One rule for all ๐Ÿž

Lynibis Some confusion here - masks should be worn (by those possibly infected) to prevent them passing on the infection, So it is the sick people who should be wearing them. Health care professionals (if screened regularly) are highly unlikely to infect their patients.

The "simple" masks people are required to wear give them very little protection - they're worn for the benefit of others.

It's my opinion that if simple masks had been mandatory from the start (especially in enclosed places) thousands of lives could have been saved.

Lynibis It is confusing I know - it was supposedly one of the reasons masks were initially discouraged, too many thought it might give the wearer protection. From what I have seen many still do. It takes quite sophisticated masks to give the wearer much protection.

IMO there should be more emphasis put on enforcing the regulations, I see buses passing my home where many passengers are ignoring the rule, it isn't very fair on the drivers who it has been shown are VERY vulnerable.

My partner bought us both fabric masks at the start of lockdown - he is not bargain savvy so bought them for ยฃ8 each ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and has now bought a third for his son ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ so Iโ€™ve been using that because itโ€™s compulsory most places in Scotland now

I bought a couple but they were far too hot an unbearable to wear and we've since learned that stretchy fabrics are useless anyway so I made do with a few of the blue papery options. I'm currently making a few from some cotton 'fat squares' I bought last year from Lidl.

Loislane I found the mask clung too closely to my face and it was a bit claustrophobic. You, Lois are clearly just hot stuff! xx ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ˜‚

I made mine (only worn about once a week when I shop) from the sleeve of an old shirt I was turning into dusters.
