Rushing around while wearing some FFP rated masks can be a somewhat restricting experience, but you shouldn't have a problem with a surgical mask or using a knitted scarf as a face covering. It's warm at the moment which makes things a little more difficult, but not to the levels that you're talking about if you have a sensible face covering.
I think mandatory face mask wearing in shops [at this point] isn't going to do a whole lot of good
mate I don't know anyone who has had it or will get it. Its a stupid rule. I saw my friends today and yes we didn't really socially distance. Im following the rules if I have to in public but not in public i couldn't give a **** about it really
You may not think you know anyone with it, but you may come into contact with someone who has it. It's for your protection just as much as everyone else's. What about the vulnerable people you know? Or the elderly people you know? What happens if you or someone you care for has an underlying condition you/they don't know about and they end up severely ill with it or they die?
With people I don't know I am keeping socially distancing. With my 2 friends today that I saw we didn't really keep socially distanced, we didn't hug or anything just sat, had a takeaway but I don't think we sat 1-2 meters apart from each other
As I do not want to pay a fine, I've also been forced to wear one, but the feeling of not being alone does help. Though I still dislike wearing one, but it is something you and I will just have to deal with, as there is no other alternative.
