Since face masks will now be compulsory on public transport (with fines for not wearing them), I thought I'd ask who's wearing masks when they go out and about, and what sort they're using. I've made a few from cotton layers and elastic. I always wear one when I go shopping because I feel less threatened when other people are wearing them, so I think I should do the same. I know they don't protect the wearer as much as they protect others, but I want to do my bit. After all, I might not know if I'm infectious. I really can't imagine being in school without one but no other teachers at work are wearing masks of any sort. Only a very few children are wearing them, too. I don't understand how masks can be compulsory for everyone (bar the very young or disabled) on public transport, and not compulsory in schools. Why do they think there is less need?
