Masks

Enforce Masks on Public Transport , Supermarkets and where people cannot social distance safely . People need out more to exercise with there kids as long as you can social distance properly . All non essential works that are still carrying on on a daily basis when being told to stop should be Fined ! Non essential shops should be shit at the start of lockdown .

Why the contribution is important

My ideas are important because these are the reason the virus can still be spreading . It needs to stop

    Absolutely not. There is overwhelming evidence to suggest not wearing masks .

    Definitely masks must be compulsory IF there is to be any easing of the lockdown. The last thing we want is a 2nd wave of infection.

    TreeGarland why would you Absolutely Not want to wear a mask where you can’t possibly social distance ??

    Wearing of masks should be mandatory when entering shops, transport or in confined areas. Its a matter of having some respect for other people

    I agree that there should be greater use of masks to help prevent spread of Covid 19. Treegarland, I have not heard of or seen any evidence of “overwhelming evidence” that suggests we don’t wear masks. Nurses are advised to wear them; doctors are advised to wear them; carers are advised to wear them; indeed Government supplies them to these groups. We are constantly advised to sneeze or cough into a tissue to prevent droplets spreading - indeed a tissue is merely a very short term mask for that moment. Unfortunately, many people don’t reach for tissues in time. The only reason government has previously played down using masks is due to shortage of supply of them, naturally wanting to keep then for key workers. However, I’m certain that if we had endless supplies of them we would be forced to wear them. There is a good reason why government is now advising that we should wear masks, albeit homemade ones - to stop spreading the infection.

    There is scientific evidence that masks protect you and to a greater extent others around you. They are mainly used to catch droplets outgoing

    Absolutely must wear masks in enclosed areas, workplaces, shops etc. They help to prevent the spread of germs and viruses to others. If everyone wears a mask then it reduces the risk for everyone. A small benefit then becomes a bigger benefit. Surely even a small benefit is better than no benefit?

    Yes, face coverings should certainly be worn outside the home with any lifting of lockdown, by everyone over primary school age. (Not necessarily medical masks- just simple face coverings to leave medical grade masks for professional carers.) This stops people touching their mouth and nose , and inhibits droplet spreading. No brainer. This will save many lives and slow the spread while we try to get back to work and patch up the economy.

    I 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.

    The problem with masks (the same with gloves) is that folk then think they are invincible! There’s definitely been an increase in folk wearing masks or covering their face with a scarf. All of that is useless when you keep touching it. Wearing a mask on your chin just makes you look like an idiot and having you nose hanging out of it is of no benefit! Rearranging and touching it constantly defeats the purpose of wearing it in the first place!! Removing it and scrunching it up in your hand just transfers what’s on the glove to your hand! And for the folk who are discarding their disposable masks and gloves in the supermarket car park......there are no words!

    We used to look askance at Asian visitors wearing masks. They had already experienced pandemic SARS, MERS and HK flu. Now they look at our unprotected faces with pity and alarm.

    Please make masks mandatory, hardly anyone is wearing them in supermarkets. People are out and about more, despite the lockdown not being lifted, and it’s getting harder to socially distance so what will it be like when lockdown is eased/lifted?
