I was one of only three persons on the entire high street wearing one, and to be honest, I drew what I could only describe as suspicious looks from quite a number of people, almost as if they thought that I had the infection and shouldn't have been out.
It will be interesting to see what it looks like on Friday week. We'll all look like drug dealers or bank robbers and be considered pillars of the community
Apparently plenty of stores (Aldi, tesco,JD Sport - y'know the big chains) are saying that they won't insist customers wear a mask and obviously the police aren't remotely interested in enforcing it.
We went to our friend's lovely pub in the country on the edge of town last night. It's killing them even though they are doing everything they have been asked to do.
There have been a mere two C19 related deaths in our area and we have lots (lots!) of elderly people in this part of town- so many that we still have decent local shops where people wait politely outside. Yet it's looking like Sheffield is a gnat's chuff away from being locked down like Leicester.
We also hear today that HMG haven't published postcode level data because of pressure from council's
who are worried about backlash that "communities" will look like they aren't performing very well. Frankly I couldn't give a toss about the feelings of the Roma living 20 to a terrace house if we lose our local shops and pubs because of another pointless lockdown.
