On another, more local note, what's protocol for mask wearing when dealing with delivery drivers? Tesco man had one on even though he didn't enter the house and I didn't. Should I have?

He was protecting himself and you so, your choice really,  I would have wore one to be honest, but no big deal as one was wearing one. Imo.

i thought masks protected the wearer and the person they are in contact with ?  they can't just be one way can they ?

I suppose if both parties wearing a mask gives that bit more protection to either concearned.

He just stacks up the trays and I take them in. I pass back empties so we are two arm lengths and a tray between us? Close to 2m id guess and he's outside.

 

But I'll wear one in future, didn't not wear one because I'm an arse. One chap stacks them all up, knocks on the door and legs it to the top of the drive and waits till I'm finished. Don't blame him!

If thats there routine stay as you are, fetch the the stuff in and if I were you I would wipe items with a damp cloth and wash your hands,  I wipe my post with a damp cloth then wash my hands,   in the two domestic situations mentioned a lot of people are thinking more about mask and keeping a safe distance and forget about the hand wash routine which is just as important. I mentioned in previous post that I spotted people walking towards shops too busy concearned with fitting their mask and grab a trolley/basket and forget the other equally important part of the routine, sanitising hands and their trolley handles, done it my self,  Ive even had to walk back to the car on some occaisions to get a mask.  :hihi:

I have been in Sainsbury Jackson at Gleadless Townend twice in the last few days and each time there was a different young man without a mask. They were both in their 30s and should know better. How would they feel if their parents caught Covid 19 off them and died.

But are we turning into snitches yes they should know better but is the crime as bad a  robbery .

There are plenty of covid snitches about.   I was on hold for a 999 police call trying to get help for two gangs beating each other with golf clubs, really hope people are using the number correctly.

Not disputing that, the  question was, is someone comitting robbery worse than spreading the virus.

Or speeding/dangerous driving?

 

No MOT = £100 fine

Coronavirus fines in England = £200 for the first offence, lowered to £100 if paid within 14 days

Scotland and other nations = £60

 

Is a speeding fine different in other nations or is the difference political?

Perhaps because the flu season hasn't started yet?

 

https://www.bupa.co.uk/health-information/childrens-health/flu#:~:text=In the UK%2C people usually,and as late as May.

 

Seasonal flu (influenza) is an infection caused by a virus that can affect your nose, throat and lungs. People tend to get it around the same time every year. In the UK, people usually get seasonal flu between December and March, although outbreaks can happen as early as October and as late as May.
