 The response at that time for these Govt workers was that it was a personal choice whether they wear a mask /  face covering

That how it should have been all along rather than making one rule for some and another for others.

So every individual makes up their own mind as to wearing a mask,locking down,maintaining social distancing?

 

I can’t see how that works in exerting any control on the spreading of the virus.

And yet you defended DominicCummings to the hilt when everybody else stayed at home / in their locality. Certainly a case of "one rule for Boris's boss and one rule for the rest of us".

Notice how I bolded the bit I made a reply to and it was specifically about face masks/face coverings!

Again my reply was about face masks/face coverings which were not mandatory when the Dominic Cummings fiasco took place..... Do keep up!

Meanwhile the Patron Saint of the Islington Allotments Society has a sudden recollection of being told about " herd immunity" back in March.

Would have been kind of handy if he'd said something at the time..........................................

I witnessed 3 youths sharing a mask this afternoon, going into the food shop one at a time, and then swapping the mask outside.

Stupid, yes, but didn't it also occur to them that youths 2 and 3 could've simply asked youth 1 to shop for them?!

So what in your opinion should be / have been mandatory?

 

Face coverings / masks, social distancing / lockdown etc etc

The import of this article appears to be banging the drum for caution when returning 

kids back to school. In addition, the author is saying, wearing of face coverings/masks,  and social distancing has to be tolerated for some time ;even after a vaccine is rolled out to the public.

 

I notice that it is hard to find the research papers that allegedly support the pronouncements by the endless list of "Experts",  authoritatively commenting

on vaccines and treatments for Covid-19.

WHO hope to put an end to the pandemic "In less than two years."

But the 'R' rate may have increased to above 1 in a number of UK areas?
