Mandatory hand washing

I think it should be made mandatory for all All shops. businesses. Cinemas, churches, work places, sporting events etc. to have hand washing facilities at the entrance of their premises This should either be wash hand basins or hand sanitisation units and these should have a camera above them or monitored in some way to ensure appropriate hand hygiene is carried out before entering the building. I feel this along with face coverings is the key to controlling this virus and prevent spreading it further. I also believe the wearing of disposable gloves should be banned in public as people are using them inappropriately and unless they are removed at the proper times they are contributing to the spread of the virus. I think doing all of the above would make Scotland a safer place and help to build confidence back in society.

Why the contribution is important

My idea is important to stop the spread of infection from person to person surface to surface, and to make Scotland a safer place.

    Definitely the handwashing. Once the 'experts' decide on face masks being necessary and can be provided to the public then yes. Otherwise a non starter.

    I would suggest a hand santising gel instead as the majority of people would not wash their hands properly.

    Agree with your point on gloves - very often misused.

    Last time I posted about my disability a janny deleted it so let's see if this goes better. I've been wearing gloves for 8 years, forced to due to splints, allergies and basic pain. This means I have upwards of 40+ pairs of gloves in constant rotation for different tasks and different weather. I can switch out my gloves every day, I can switch out my gloves every trip and on top of that I can switch out my gloves multiple times on trips. I can wash them, wash them right and sterilise them no problem. What I can't do is wash my hands in a reasonable time due to how crippled my hands are and how utterly destroyed they are from years of being fractured and dislocated. If a store or business was to provide a hand washing station they'd also have to manage expectations for disabled people like myself who take upwards of 3+ minutes to wash their hands, rotate splints, dry their hands and put back on or change gloves. Now here's where a janny is going to get mad. Do you have any idea at all, any singular idea of what it's like to be judged for being disabled or being seen as taking up space or not fast enough? I used to feel that way against a certain class of people and by golly do I 8 years on view them the same as me now; for I have a worse skeleton than them. Sounds like a starter right? Actually a wee bit naff. Try a gel with alcohol instead or account for MULTIPLE stations and space dedicated to it. >I also believe the wearing of disposable gloves should be banned in public as people are using them inappropriately and unless they are removed at the proper times they are contributing to the spread of the virus. They're glove newbies; go easy on them. It takes a long time to perfect your glove-fu.
