Face coverings

Should wearing a mask not encourage us to touch our face more than usual. Taking it off once back in car after being at supermarket. Adjusting it once on. It just seems pointless to me. Maybe some protection against a sneeze but the pay off is the touching of your face.

    Masks should be compulsory and people need to realise they are protecting others from the germs they could spread, a bit of discipline and education is all that's needed but the masks need to be available to all, not just key workers.

    I have tried a mask and it just does not work as you are removing it so many times in a day with hands that may be contaminated. There is also no outlets that will sell more than one mask so a huge shortage unless bought online and most are fake rubbish

    The touching face aspect is being completely overblown when in low risk environments, Without a mask you can still contaminate your face.. Just be sensible when taking it off and on, Keep washing your hands regularly, your face too with care, and wash you non-medical mask regularly. If everyone does this it could be as effective as lock down according to some studies.
