    I would fully support this idea. Other countries make use of this, especially those with experience of SARS like viruses. Should be mandatory.

    Distancing is clearly incompatible with many important activities: work, travel, shopping, school, etc. While distancing should be used where possible, effective masks would greatly increase the range of safe activities. Wearing masks in such situations needs to be compulsory, there needs to be clear and justified guidance on appropriate standards for masks, clear guidance on how to use them properly, and they need to be readily available.

    know that the benefits of face coverings/masks are disputed, but they are increasingly being used by countries coming out of lockdown in Europe, and their use is already prevalent in Asia. I believe that, to be effective in mitigating the spread of droplets from sneezes, coughs and breaths, their use in a population needs to be more or less universal. So, I would urge that the current recommendation to consider wearing a face covering in potentially crowded or busy situations like shops and public transport should be toughened up to mandatory status, with the customary range of enforcement provisions. Why the contribution is important I think that the wearing of face coverings/masks in appropriate situations is important because: 1. It is beneficial in preventing the spread of the virus. 2. It will publicly and visibly reinforce community commitment to a disciplined approach to emerging from the crisis. 3. It will be acknowledged by the our neighbours in Europe and the wider World as a reassurance that we are taking the threats of a "second wave" seriously and responsibly.

    yes I think masks in public areas may be a way of being able to ease some restrictions. If everyone wears one it would reduce the chance of infection. JMack makes a good point. I worry about going out in case I am asymptomatic and spread it to someone who may be more vulnerable.
