Supermarkets

Three days ago I was in Sainsbury’s picked up a few things I needed and was shocked at the lack of people shopping. Today I was in Tesco a typical Sunday would be packed and again shocked at the lack of customers. For me since masks have been introduced I only shop from my list, no browsing no extras in and out. Nor do I shop in town now as I find the whole mask issue unpleasant and ruins the shopping experience. It’s crazy that I work all day in a healthcare setting NO mask and have to wear one to shop. These masks are useless offering protection from 5 microns upwards when the virus is less than a micron ...... I’m done with this government and it’s corruption .

I have to disagree with you there, regarding masks. I always wear them when out and about shopping and even outside in the town centre. I don't think there's less people out shopping due the masks, but rather due to all the over shopping people know they can find everything whenever they want.
My daughter lives and works in Japan, she's used to wearing a mask when out and about in crowded areas. Even if she has a slight cold she wears one ,out of respect to others, something I think most don't understand here. It's not to protect you but to protect those around you, you may even be asymptomatic but still be a super spreader. But you surely know that since you work in a healthcare setting.

I want to wear a mask and obey the law but my experience with several different types of mask including a bandanna is that i am too hot, my glasses are displaced so i cant see well, i have to constantly stop them slipping off and they quickly get damp from my own breath. I feel distracted and confused such tha ti dont take in what is on show and can barely see the price tags. My eyesight has deteriorated during lockdown (dont know why) and i am having difficulty seeing more than a few feet anyway so the stuff on my face is making a bad thing worse. Reply

I haven’t been this week, I would usually go shopping on a Friday but thought I would leave it a bit longer as I am overheating in the heat with the mask! I could probably request permission not to wear it as I have health conditions but don’t want to risk aggression or an argument! Reply

I just love it when I visit Sainsbury's ~ very few other shoppers to avoid ~ I was in and out inside 20 minutes ~ but I do tend to go in the evening when I know it will be quieter !
I wore my mask ~ yes it is a little uncomfortable ~ but if it stops me from spraying my germs over another shopper, then it's done it's job !!

I have not been into a supermarket this year as Mrs B is the shopper and reports that Waitrose is always quiet now,so much better and the reason is that people are topping up locally and buying online. Reply

I’ve vastly reduced my trips to the shops since masks were made compulsory... Reply
