Not so stupid if they want the AC on.

Wearing a mask can limit taking in a massive breathe of the shit and not giving your immune system a losing battle from the off (especially if you have a weakened immune system).

Shitloads of people walking round Sweden asymptomatically and killing the older population. Not that different here to be honest and scale might be as large as there come winter.

Not so certain they don't make it worse, most shoppers out there are constantly touching their masks then man-handling goods Sticking out tongue

What are the best light weight options?

Got a cheapo cotton Amazon one just now but my face is roasting when wearing it for more than 5 min.

Seems to be a blanket refusal to wear masks on transport by yoot sisters in the east London area.

Weird. Suppose they don’t wanna mess up their make-up.

I was on the district earlier at Wimbledon, only say 70% take up. Nobody to police but it’s a dead quiet line

Lol, one; most ffp3 masks at these type of places are sold out or only shit massive ones that no one else wants.

Two; you don’t need that level of protection to get your coco pops down Sainsbury’s local. Completely unnecessary imo.

1. you can still find them, though admittedly more expensive than usual.
2. That's debatable and obviously subjective.

if you're wearing a valved ffp3 mask you may as well not bother

Not valved, but even if it was it still protects you. If others choose not to wear a mask then thats their choice.

erm, thats not how it works.

None of the fabric masks people are wearing protect you from catching it, they're not airtight. They reduce transmission to others. The more people reducing transmission, the better.

If you wear a valved airtight mask then you are effectively protecting yourself but noone else.

My cousin is making masks (she makes them herself, inserts for filters, great quality). More info here:

Valved airtight mask with a cloth one over it seems to be the way to go then Smiling
