Having seen the enormous gathering of people, huddled together around the door of the Moor Market about 9am on its last trading day, It'll be interesting to see how they cope with social distancing when they reopen? 

Was saying something similar to a friend yesterday when told the will be reopening tomorrow as I honestly thought this would be the final nail in its coffin.

its looking more and more likely the 2m rule will be reduced to 1m to bring it in line with most of the Eu, so many businesses will have to re-do all their signage , what a waste of money.

 

i imagine most businesses and most people will retain 2m regardless. 1m only really helps pubs and restaurants and they aren't opening yet

in fact the whole distancing thing is pointless anyway unless someone is literally in your face and spitting and slavering at you.

you have met some of the people off here then

Even when the pubs do open, I think I'll give them a miss for a good month or so.  I'm not dying for a drink.

Sounds sensible to me,   bar managers and staff unfortunately having to act like school teachers ensuring people are keeping the correct distance,  I wouldn't like to be in their position , some people  after a smell at the barmaids apron I think some people  will get a bit stroppy when being reminded to keep to the distance rule,   Ive seen how some people react to the simple shout of last orders and come on havn't ya got homes to go too,  :hihi:

Exactly, @PRESLEY. I'm not overly concerned about the 'risks' - they seem to vary on a daily basis - but   as I rarely go to the city centre unless I have a specific reason, it isn't going to make much difference to me.

Don't shop in Lidl , Chesterfield Road, Sheffield, or any other Lidl.

They do nothing to promote mask wearing in store.

Furthermore, the manager and staff there have been instructed by head office to 'not get involved'.  

 

I spoke to a customer not wearing a mask. He didn't take much notice and we parted without any further words.

When I approached the staff and manager the above information given.

 

Its my opinion that they are responsible for the conduct of their store. Their bumf says they are co-operating with the government coronavirus conditions - this is simply not true.

Thanks - I was planning a Lidl store visit as a treat for myself.  It's not my local supermarket, but close enough and would have been a change to do my weekly shop somewhere else - almost like a holiday!  Oh well!

I've had the opposite to that and found  Lidl one of the better shops (Mexborough anyway) 

A blanket ban on all Lidl's seems a little harsh.

 

I did go to IKEA the other day for the first & last time. (conned into going for one of the Daughters while I was in Sheff)

I must admit to this is not my type of shopping anyway and I'm proud to say I've only ever been to Meadow Hall 3 times since it opened.

The parking was easy enough at IKEA and the queue's both in and out were pretty fast moving but the silly one way system and blocked connecting routes taking me into every department rather than alowing me to go straight to where I wanted to be was about as daft as you can get. 

Like I said First & Last.

 

Keep safe 

Rocker.

Why would they get involved?

 

People have hidden disabilities, not everyone can wear a mask for various reasons. What right does a store manager have prying into the personal business of one of their customers. Do you really think that some checkout operator or stock stacker on minimum wage is going to put themselves at risk by confronting customers entering the store.

 

There is only so much that any business can do.  Signage, provision of supplies for sanitation and possibly some gentle reminders but that's it.  

 

The rest is down to us taking our personal responsibility for ourselves not the police the others

Just a rant!

 

If you want to better your chances of catching Covid 19, just pop along to the local shop on Foxhill Rd,. 12 customers in there today, 1 other person and me wearing a mask, 11 others not !
