Coronavirus - July 17 - Weekly update
The news on most people’s lips at the moment (not that you can see) is masks are to be made compulsory for shopping, with shoppers who fail to comply risking being slapped a £100 fine.
While some see this as a positive step forward, many are arguing the rule should have been implemented months ago.
My own feelings are this has been a supply issue, rather than a sudden awakening of the risks from the government.At home, during our weekly online grocery shop over the last two weeks, we’ve been buying supplies and they seem to be readily available.They don’t seem to fit particularly well and mainly prove as a gesture of solidarity to other shoppers.
