I think it will become the norm for alot of people but i guess alot of people will be glad to see the back of them no doubt. I'll continue to wear one as it just seems the sensible thing to do

Yes, I did at the start when very few people did however, I did notice then that people got too close thinking the mask makes everything safe. I hope the masks continue after the vaccine rolls out, just until we know for sure it's safe again x

I would definitely still wear one. Not only do they protect me, but I'm protecting others too, and personally I believe that (unless you're exempt) it's selfish not to wear a mask. It's not a guaranteed shield of the virus, but it's the best way I can help πŸ™‚ .

PhilipMarc Yes it's SELFISH, a mask gives minimal protection to the wearer so those who don't wear a face covering, where required to, are SELFISH individuals willing to accept the protection afforded them by others but too SELFISH to return the favour.

For those who still haven't got the message, a person using face covering won't project their breath, which might contain droplets containing the virus, as far as anyone who isn't wearing one. The face coverer has very little protection from the COVIDiots, they still need to inhale.

* Compulsory

If they weren't required in establishments? I wouldn't use it.

Governments around the world are also looking to make vaccines compulsory, but under the Universal Declaration of Bioethics and Human Rights they can't or else they're violating the rights.

Quite true but it doesn't prevent a country refusing admission to those who haven't had the vaccine. if and when one becomes widely available. Logically that could be easily achieved if all passports needed an official stamp confirming the holder was innoculated, without the stamp the passport would be useless.

Remember you first read it here ☺

I hate wearing them but I do. What annoys me is that they are compulsory in our work, fine, but then I find all those we have interaction with are NOT wearing them, so I am protecting them but they don't give a hoot about protecting me, even though I am in an older at risk group.

What I don't understand is why some people are wearing them when alone. From my kitchen window I see loads of people walking their dog with masks on, driving alone in a car with mask on, are they protecting themselves from themselves? It just proves to me that many folk haven't a clue what this virus is or how it spreads.

Those on their own in a car who wear a mask are perhaps hoping to reduce the risk of their car interiors from becoming too contaminated if they are carrying the virus, or it could be that it's getting cold and they want to keep their faces warm☺☺

Moonstone22 I'm having the same issue and, although I always wash them, it is difficult to get the stronger stains out. Yesterday I ordered the mask supports so that the mask stand further away from my face. I'm hoping it also makes it less claustrophobic.

SAdeals I thought of doing the same. Everytime I stand in front of the mirror I say to myself. All I need is some cream and maybe some mascara, nobody's going to look at me much anyway. And then I find myself half an hour later with the full make up on and wondering how I can never stop with just the cream

sunny101 It is such a pain when the stains don't come out. Especially when it's a red lipstick. It's a good idea to get mask supports. I saw a quior on the news with 'duck' face masks. Apparently they help project peoples voice and not feel so claustrophobic, and it would be the end of mask lipstick transfer

Moonstone22 and SAdeals The mask supports have made a huge difference! It keeps the fabric away from my mouth and makes me feel more comfortable but still makes contact with my face top and bottom. Definitely worth buying. I shared one recently that is still holding it's price and great if you can share with family or friends. (works out to 70p each) https://www.latestdeals.co.uk/deals/10-pcs-3d-mask-support-frame--amazon

I don't wear make-up, but I do wear a bit of aftershave every so often because my OH likes it.

I've recently had a heating system installed and I had a mask on, even though 3 of the 4 workers didn't. Only the boss man had a mask on throughout the installation, but he was coughing throughout.

I caught a bad cold soon after, but maybe it was a coincidence.

You might find a transparent face visor easier to wear than a mask, in a few ways they're better than a mask for some people and are quite acceptable under regulations (as a face covering) They were available at Aldi and cost Β£1.99p.

HollyDolly22 If you are exempt from wearing a face mask (which you should be if they cause panic attacks) then this is what I found "If you are exempt from wearing a mask but are able to wear a visor, you could still do this as it may be better than nothing".https://www.bhf.org.uk/informationsupport/heart-matters-magazine/news/coronavirus-and-your-health/coronavirus-and-face-masks#Heading5

It's my opinion that anyone wearing a visor is attempting to comply, and not just totally ignoring the regulations, when they exhale any breath is not projected as far.
