Carry on wearing a mask? For now I will. An example today reinforced my opinion. I was posting a letter near a shop, a van was parked outside. As I walked past it, an elderly chap stuck his head near the open window and coughed non stop, very forcibly. I thought he would make himself sick doing so. My head was within 3’ of his but I had already put my mask on thank goodness.
Once home I gave the mask and my face a very good wash. You just don’t know do you!
I will carry on wearing it in shops or close quarters if too near other people. I currently have no need to use public transport but if I did, would wear one. We still don’t feel comfortable eating inside but have tried to do so, especially if it isn’t too busy.
It seems masks and social distancing are to go, a very big mistake in my opinion but there you go. It feels a political and financial gut decision rather than based on medical need. Whitty and Valance didn’t seem impressed at all.
The NHS may not be overwhelmed by Covid but to all intents and purposes it is. Things are nowhere near back to normal, it seems impossible to get appointments and operations anytime soon. We need to be ready for others to invade our personal space once more. We always have hand gel available and will keep it close by still.
What about you, will you carry on wearing masks, social distancing and hand washing?
