When will this shit end?

I appreciate this is just one example, but  in my local co-op earlier today I saw 100% customer compliance with masks (Children excluded) and 0% staff wearing masks, so not quite sure how my local co-op could legitimately call out a customer for not wearing a mask even if they wanted to.

I don't think shop staff have to. Isn't that right?

Sorry yes you are right, they don’t have too but it seems odd that’s all, in a small shop where they are in the aisles restocking, I fully appreciate they don’t have a choice where they are as it’s their job but I can reconcile it with shops (potentially) telling customers to wear masks (which obviously customers should be doing).

I don’t get why in other countries they get on with masks just fine and in this country people have to kick and scream and make a fuss like babies. 

Wearing masks in these enclosed spaces can save lives, I just don’t get why some people are so selfish and don’t care about anyone else but themselves so think they are entitled not to stick to the law.

Me me me culture and don't like change would probably sum up a certain contingent of the UK :(

Is that actually the case?  I don't have loads of personal experience of this, but what I have heard from a German friend is pretty much similar to here.

I have a German friend who says everyone just gets on with the masks, and apparently they have a contact tracing app which is very good as well. She was shocked at how relaxed the rules are here compared to over in Germany.

Thats correct but completely bonkers 

I agree t's nuts, if they are on the shop floor they should be wearing a mask. Above used Co-op as example, my local one is small with narrow aisles yet staff stocking up never wear a mask but ones behind the till with screens do - go figure :huh:

I guess it varies from area to area then.  There have been protests in Berlin, according to my friend lots don't wear masks on public transport there.

maybe it's just to try and get customers back shopping,,,rather than public safety?

I see it having the reverse effect for some shops like high street clothes shops...not so fun going clothes shopping with mates now have to wear a mask.

reasons not to today from colleagues were .....1)  I had a test last week , I dont have it and im not wearing it until its mandatory ... my response was that it protects others ... im still not wearing it until its mandatory .........2)  I wore them at the beginning and people laughed at me ...3)  they are too hot I cant wear them 4) and I dont know how many people told me today that it should have been done earlier .... like thats some kind of reason we shouldn't do it now !!!

Not being able to try anything on has definitely put me off, I've just ordered some stuff online.  Less hassle to return by post than to the shop. I understand why the rule is there obviously, but I can see it having a negative impact on the high street.

I was just coming to post about this. Basically a one-day festival innit? If stuff like this is going ahead this year, things would have to get very bad for festivals to be totally off next year.

It's a tough one - I'd feel sorry for shop workers on minimum wage having to wear a mask for 8 hours a day when customers are only having to wear them for a few minutes while they are in the shop! I can't wait to take mine off as soon as I'm out of the shop (especially when the weather is warm - sweaty face & all that).

I would feel safer if they were wearing them though!

whilst nightclubs and pubs and socialising non existent ... this will be more of an issue where that is concerned than mask wearing I would of thought ... no point having a new outfit and sitting on the sofa

It is socially distanced...maybe other events will have to adjust to that.

ive been wearing shields since ive been back  3 weeks now ... although they dont offer the same protection as masks an 8 hour shift is very possible in them ...  so they should be required as a minimum
