    Are people here still masking up with in shops and public transport?

    Wondering if people are still wearing face coverings when indoors in public places, or have chosen to unmask now they are double jabbed?

    I noticed in shops now, where you can choose, most have now ditched the mask.

    Yup still masking up for most stuff where it's not hugely inconvenient. Still in the habit more than believing I'm helping contain the virus though I'll admit. We'll also wear it when entering a restaurant for example but not for a night out etc. Just about to go to the local pub to work for a few hours and I'll walk in with it on and when I go to the loo but not the rest of the time.

    Brother in law and his daughter caught covid and despite being double jabbed he felt crap. Also know a handful of other people that have also caught it being double jabbed so we aren't in the mindset 'it's gone away' as some people we speak to think.

    Granted in nearly every case there is a teen child involved so guess it's them that got it and through the very close interaction of family life they've passed it to a parent so that's a very extreme situation. Not like it's been passed from a random shopper in an isle.

    But yeah, usually the only one in the (small) store with one on nowadays.

      If they make it clear they would prefer me to, I do. Otherwise I don't tend to bother. e.g. Screwfix has a sign on the door "please wear a mask" but none of their staff do so I don't bother. 90% of people in our church have stopped so I did too. But our local micropub prefer people wear them when not seated so I do. And the doctor is strongly in favour.

      It's merely a courtesy to me at this point, it's hardly a problem.

        M & S have a sign, masks, your choice. I notice none of the staff wear them
        Tesco says please wear a mask if you can.

        I think it comes to the stage that if you look around and all you see is unmasked people, you have to think, they aren't protecting me, do I really need to look like some kind of hygiene freak?

          Still a requirement in Wales.

          Even the sheep are wearing them.

                  Yep mainly 90% of people seem not to now.

                  I have relatives at significant risk so try to avoid catching it

                    If your self-identity is very fragile I suppose that is a consideration.
