I don’t think they’re brave, I think they’re stupid and selfish. Do I resent having to wear a mask now when we didn’t have to before? Yes. Do I resent the fact that I have to wear a mask when I volunteer at my local charity shop now, for 3 hours straight? Yes. But I still wear one. Because I know that in the end, it doesn’t protect me, it protects others. And it’s just common decency. Unless you’ve got a good reason to not wear one (like a health issue or likewise) then wear one. End off. No ‘it’s brave to not wear one’ or giving ego boosts to idiots who don’t.

I only wear it because I have to and I'd rather not stand out and get indirected by angry Brits on twitter. It's a shame that it doesn't help and is arguably damaging to health but still was mandated.

Not really. If you are able to wear one, you should. They aren't there to protect you from the virus. They're there to protect others.

The risk of catching it and giving it to someone else is very low since you aren’t talking to people in the supermarket.

I wear one because we have to and so to avoid the hassle of possible confrontations if you don’t wear one

Maybe they can’t afford them

IMO I think shops should have some disposable ones

it’s stupid.

even if you don’t believe masks are effective, just wear one for the 5 mins you are in a shop. please don’t harass retail staff and all those people who have to work in places where masks are required.

wear them or shop online.

Ngl, giving people who don't wear masks in shops and look like they aren't exempt dirty looks is super fun

I went into store a few times without a mask, usually late when nobody was about. Hardly anyone wore masks, so not much good me wearing one while shopping I would be one of a few in the entire store.

Now everyone wears one because its forced, but people seem to be ignoring social distancing because of it.. masks especially the crap people wear can't filter ****.

False sense of security.

The thing is that it's a legal requirement to wear a mask when you go in a shop. Sure, the police aren't going to be called for every single person who doesn't wear one but by not wearing one you're just unnecessarily putting yourself and everyone else at an increased risk for no reason. I always like to say that being "brave" is very different to being "stupid".

I don't wear one because it just increases the chance of me contracting the virus. You have to constantly adjust it and touch your face after touching the basket and trolley handles (where the virus is more likely to spread from). It's also bad for you to prevent the toxins leaving your body and moist air is how people get asthma. The CO2 isn't good for your brain either

Get a better fitting one. I don’t touch my mask once it’s on, and I’ve had no problems with it moving around or fogging my glasses.
Clean the basket handle/trolly handle at the beginning of your shop and sanitise your hands regularly throughout your shop.
Get a breathable one. I personally recommend one made with tana lawn cotton. Surgeons wear masks for several hours and are fine.

Problem solved

1. You can adjust masks without touching your face

2. Wipe the trolley/basket down before touching it, This isn't actually an issue because you don't need to touch your face to adjust your mask - but even if it was an issue, the solution is incredibly simple.

3. What toxins? The only 'toxin' you breather out is carbon dioxide, and I can guarantee your mask isn't keeping you from breathing out CO2. In fact, masks unquestionably reduce the toxins in your body - that's why they're frequently used in areas with serious air pollution.

4. I can't find a source for the claim that moist air causes asthma, although it does seem to trigger asthma attacks. I'm not sure why air would be moister if you're wearing a mask, though.
