No, they should expect you to obey this law like any other, and let you go hungry until you do.

I cant believe you are not a troll and actually mean what you are actually posting here.
Do me a favour a post a picture of yourself on here so I can personally go up to you if I see you in one of the shops I go to (or on the train for that matter) and scream as loudly as possible at you for putting others lives in danger by refusing to wear a mask.
I am over 60 and I work in a shop..I work in a shop because if i didn't go to work I wouldn't be able to live.
Read up on Covid..it is not only the over 60's or those with underlying health issues that die or become seriously ill with the virus.
Also there is NO guarantee that if you had it you are now immune or indeed that any form of immunity lasts longer than 3 months. Plus virus's evolve you could be immune to one strain but not the other.
Your attitude sucks...do you SERIOUSLY think any of us like wearing a mask? do you seriously think that shop workers such as myself enjoy wearing them for sometimes as long as 12 hours a day?
NO..I wear a mask to protect my loved ones (one of whom has asthma the other very elderly), I wear a mask to protect other workers and commuters.
I really cant believe you're not a troll but if you're not...I pity you.
life must be very lonely with an attitude like yours.

Scream as loudly as possible? Wow, you're quite the valiant do gooder.

If you work in M&S or Co-op on Lordship Lane, can you please explain why none of the staff wear masks and never had during this entire pandemic?

Masks make hardly any difference- our own government told us that long ago. It simply makes old/vulnerable people more reassured and confident (falsely) about leaving the house, and contributing to our economy through work or spending, like our government wants.

I don't know if don't be silly is just a vile person on a vile troll- not sure it matters. The callous attitude shown with no empathy towards people in genuine distress and crisis is too much. During the lockdown, I helped out an 84 year old lady who has no family, no access to the internet, no fridge and no freezer. She basically had no idea how to feed herself unless she made regular trips to the supermarket. She was well aware that she was putting her own life in danger but also incredibly anxious that she was also potentially doing something to put others at risk by getting ill and adding to the strain on the NHS. How would reading some of the comments here make her feel I wonder? In this sense, it's lucky she doesn't have access to the internet.

I would expect an 84 year old to not understand the internet- but no fridge or freezer? Pull the other one. i get the point you are making, but theres no need to exaggerate to win sympathy. Luckily there seemed to be plenty of people to help out the vulnerable and needy during the worst of the crisis, including yourself it would seem with the aforementioned lady. It was nice to hear, although a friend of mine cheekily messaged the number on one of the help flyers that came through the door, saying he was self isolating and got a neighbour to do all his shopping for him, when he was 100% fit as a fiddle!

dontbesilly is a troll, best ignored. A reaction like yours is just what trolls love.

We also know an elderly person who until lockdown did not have a fridge or freezer. She moved into a HA flat from a private rental which had inadequate electrical sockets. She moved to the new flat with the fridge which later 'died'. despite offers of help to take her to shops to purchase new fridge. she declined as felt that since she was able to go out daily to do local shopping. It was only by chance during lockdown she commented to a sales assistant that she had neither fridge or freezer, and was immediately contacted by someone who was getting rid of a fridge freezer. This kind couple installed it in her new flat free of charge.

Yes, similar story. I met her looking very confused in the shop as she was trying to work out what she could buy that would last a few days without refrigeration. Through nothing more than posting on a mutual aid site on facebook, some lovely people offered up a fridge and someone else delivered it and installed it for her. The crisis truly did bring out the best and worst in people.

So true...sorts the wheat from the chaff doesn't it?
At times like these little acts of human kindness makes such a difference.

Dontbesilly must be a troll but unfortunately there are others that share the views expressed. On the basis someone may read and reflect.

Face coverings / masks that most of us wear offer protection to OTHERS. Would you want to have the virus but feel fine and pass it on unknowingly? That aside its now law that they should be worn in shops - not everyone agrees with every law but they are there for a reason. An MP said its common sense / courtesy to wear a mask and then it became law and not everyone does - what does that say? Wearing a face covering shows you are willing to do your bit - I doubt there is anyone who finds masks comfortable to wear or who would choose to but is it that much trouble?

Staff wearing them - each shop will have its own approach and staff may not get a free choice. If staff are behind screens masks wont be needed.

let the younger generation- myself included, carry on living their life as normal. Now there are reports that its believed the younger generation may be transmitting / catching Covid19 more. Wed all like to live life as normal but to do that we need to follow some restrictions or we risk going back to lockdown restrictions for all. Is that worth not wearing a mask for a short while?

Good to hear of people helping others. Thats been a plus of this situation.

A question for anyone who thinks wearing masks or any other measures were asked to take are not for them. Do you want to go into a local lockdown?

Everyone in the North West, Luton and Leicester is affected by the restrictions that came in at very short notice. Not wearing a mask, not following social distancing, meeting with more people than guidance says has consequences for more than just you.

Ive seen all of the above locally and it wont matter if someone hasnt left their house, has used Click and Collect for their shopping if a local lockdown is put in place it will affect them as well as those who met in bigger groups or played football. The saying No man is an island comes to mind - no one can stop this virus on their own but together we can.

Next time you go to do something and ignore the law / guidance think What if I cant do this tomorrow?

As I said before that I'd love shops to turn away lawbreakers and let them go hungry, I must add a quick "don't feed the troll".
