If a store/shop/supermarket fails to enforce wearing of masks,could the employees have a potential health and safety case against the company?

Maybe worth considering to avoid some compensation claims.

I wouldn't think so how could you prove where you picked the virus up from?

I don't think so. The company I work for have said it's up to us but they actively encourage it.

No, because plenty of people are exempt from wearing masks as are employees. As there is virtually no scientific evidence that mask wearing is of any value no case would make it to court anyway.

If you haven't worked it out yet muzzle wearing is all about conditioning people to accept a vaccine. Big pharma doesn't want to miss out on it's payday.

The mask requirement is between the government and the individual. Not wearing one in-store is a criminal matter enforceable by the police. Its not something stores themselves are obliged to enforce so there's no personal injury claim through negligence.

I believe staff are still able to refuse to work if they don't think it's a safe environment.

The vaccine (when available) will not be obligatory - so your conspiracy is dead-in-the-water. Also companies like Astra Zenica have already said it will provide 400 million vaccines at 'cost'.

I think if and when a vaccine becomes available they'll be alot of people exempt from having to pay for it, key workers for one and high risk people for another I doubt will have to pay for the vaccine, on the other hand if a young/healthy person wants the vaccine I think they would have to pay (which I gladly would) as they are low risk of catching the virus and 9 times out of 10 would only develop mild symptoms if any at all..... I think that's a sensible way to look at it

In the UK, the vaccine will be free on the NHS. There is no real profit in vaccines anyway, vaccines prevent people from getting sick with ONE treatment... sick people need treatment over a long period of time.

Yep - a simple addition to the flu vaccine process that has already been in place for a number of years.

Quite likely, but H&S is the responsibility of everyone which would potentially make the militant employee culpable as well.

I don't make a habit of going to the shops, but those I've been to over the last week have had an employee at the door, wearing a mask, and a box of individually wrapped disposable masks alongside the hand sanitiser.

Haven't seen a single maskless person in a shop, so the message is getting through.

Face coverings have shown a range of evidence for them to be worn. As a small gesture to the safety of others, it's a huge leap to connect with the potential vaccines that may come. Put simply, if they may help to save an infection and death, most people will prefer to do it.

If an employer and business takes reasonable steps to help care for its staff and customers, when individuals are personally not prevented from following official and store advice, then it probably means that they are doing what they can, following a risk assessment. Staff and public would face risks if they challenge others.

Saw a few in Tesco in Eastbourne, what made me chuckle the most were people who are from the BAME groups. They are deemed at a higher risk of catching the virus, you would expect them to be more vigilant.

Masks are more about reducing the risk of you spreading it than anything else.

You’re not going to want to go shopping in a mask if there’s a risk of you sneezing, are you?

There "virtually is" scientific evidence that mask-wearing is effective, but keep peddling a lie because you're gullible enough to believe some Facebook post or alt-right news outlet

Wouldn't mind some expert opinion, ppe is facefit and hospital staff don't reuse masks. Papermasks are more for basic hygiene and disposed of accordingly. They don't wear masks or face coverings from old curtains (reminds me of sound of music ) Some blingy fashion ones out their but that's missing the point

Very very few people wear them in shops here

Of the small number I have seen seemto be the older generation, not worn correctly and fiddling with them often whilst being oblivious to social distancing. Not sure what benefit they feel they're having.

Even the governments own review of the mask evidence, before bringing the legislation in, states that the evidence for them being beneficial is weak.

So the evidence that routinely available, non-clinical face masks are effective at preventing aerosol spread of viruses is… “weak” and “limited”

Read it yourselves if you wish. You are being 'played'.

Firstly the person you are replying to is correct regarding masks, it even says it in black and white on the packaging that the mask doesn't protect against coronavirus.

Secondly why on earth do you "expect" a fully detailed and reserched response as to why he thinks we are being played.

How about you give a fully detailed and reserched response as to why you think hes wrong about being played about masks.

Instead of just throwing out the conspiracy word to anyone that has a different view to yourself.

The way you say you “expect a fully researched response, in all aspects” is not the way Internet forums work. As you well know. Are you asking for some sort of thesis?

You say that studies show that face masks “may” reduce the spread of the virus. The virus that is so lethal that many of the “sufferers” don’t even know they have the bloody thing! Well ....

So you care so little for other people that you aren't even prepared to put a small piece of cloth over your face that may prevent someone dying cause it makes you a little bit uncomfortable.

As long as the government makes every single person, place and circumstance a disease vector, you would have no hope of winning any kind of legal complaint against a specific proprietor in this case.

I questioned a security guard at a small Tesco’s store as to weather people still have to wear masks as people were walking around without them on.

His response I don’t know and I’m glad I don’t know.

Another response at a major Store When I was taking my elderly mother shopping.

We aren’t allowed to tell people to wear masks.

Fecking useless waste of time.

I have put a small piece of cloth over my face. I’m wearing a mask saying “”I CANT BREATHE”. I have done so because it’s the new law and because I need to get my food shopping! I’m fairly well convinced I don’t have Covid, I don’t present a risk and I am not at risk.

I absolutely 100% disagree with it, and I will never EVER accept having my face covered as acceptable.

Every asymptomatic carrier is "fairly well convinced" they don't have it. That's why people are still dying or being left with lifelong damage to organs and brain tissue.

Seems to me that the small places aren’t that fussed - probably because they are independent business that they want to nurture and grow - they aren’t going to ruin their business over a mask... this is actually a really good opportunity to support local retailers over the big bosses of the supermarket world

But when you look at the stats, that just isn’t true. Yes- at the height of the virus in March/April, it was true. Now- they are scratching around trying to find cases, let alone ICU admissions.

I disagree with it, I do not really enjoy it.

I have not been tested and I have shown no symptoms even though I have worked right through.

I wear the mask when required including at work to protect my mother and those more vulnerable around me.

"

If you haven't worked it out yet muzzle wearing is all about conditioning people to accept a vaccine. Big pharma doesn't want to miss out on it's payday.

The vaccine (when available) will not be obligatory - so your conspiracy is dead-in-the-water. Also companies like Astra Zenica have already said it will provide 400 million vaccines at 'cost'.

I think if and when a vaccine becomes available they'll be alot of people exempt from having to pay for it, key workers for one and high risk people for another I doubt will have to pay for the vaccine, on the other hand if a young/healthy person wants the vaccine I think they would have to pay (which I gladly would) as they are low risk of catching the virus and 9 times out of 10 would only develop mild symptoms if any at all..... I think that's a sensible way to look at it

In the UK, the vaccine will be free on the NHS. There is no real profit in vaccines anyway, vaccines prevent people from getting sick with ONE treatment... sick people need treatment over a long period of time.

Cal"

Exactly this .. the intelligent persons conspiracy theory ..an economically sound argument ..

I'll make sure I pass that on to my friend that is currently helping care for 10 people in ICU. And in case you haven't seen a news report from almost any country on the planet at the moment, there are very much still people dying. How big does the number of dead need to be for you to accept a tiny bit of discomfort, 100, 1000, 100000? Or does it have to be someone you care about rather than just some random face in a supermarket that you can go home and forget about?

Great- I will also discuss it with my friend who is a technician working on the ventilators keeping people alive in the ICU. I’m glad we both have friends who work in the same sort of business. Hopefully your buddy is keeping his and your head together while the rest of the country follows the government in running around like headless chickens.

I’m not going to answer questions about “around the planet”. I can only answer questions about our country. Statistically, the majority of cases are left without any kind of long term damage, or even death. Some don’t even know they had it!! If you can provide statistics to suggest otherwise- be my guest.

Some of the frontline staff deserve a bloody medal... not only have they kept our basic human survival and dignity needs available - they have sometimes been the only human being I have seen and spoken to in the flesh for days.

Yes they do get paid for it It just makes me think I can wear one for 20 minutes if they are wearing them for so long. If people don't want to wear them, for whatever reason, don't wear them, it's quite simple

No, because plenty of people are exempt from wearing masks as are employees. As there is virtually no scientific evidence that mask wearing is of any value no case would make it to court anyway.

If you haven't worked it out yet muzzle wearing is all about conditioning people to accept a vaccine. Big pharma doesn't want to miss out on it's payday."

Well it’s interesting that you can’t answer my challenge with a number of your own. Presumably because, like me, you don’t have one.

I can tell you this. Until I am convinced that I personally have the Rona, and that I am a risk to other people, I will not be willing to wear a mask.

I will look forward to seeing you on rallies supporting the burqa, and any other type of freedom restricting garment the government decides on a whim that we wear.

But when you look at the stats, that just isn’t true. Yes- at the height of the virus in March/April, it was true. Now- they are scratching around trying to find cases, let alone ICU admissions.

I'll make sure I pass that on to my friend that is currently helping care for 10 people in ICU. And in case you haven't seen a news report from almost any country on the planet at the moment, there are very much still people dying. How big does the number of dead need to be for you to accept a tiny bit of discomfort, 100, 1000, 100000? Or does it have to be someone you care about rather than just some random face in a supermarket that you can go home and forget about?

Great- I will also discuss it with my friend who is a technician working on the ventilators keeping people alive in the ICU. I’m glad we both have friends who work in the same sort of business. Hopefully your buddy is keeping his and your head together while the rest of the country follows the government in running around like headless chickens.

I’m not going to answer questions about “around the planet”. I can only answer questions about our country. Statistically, the majority of cases are left without any kind of long term damage, or even death. Some don’t even know they had it!! If you can provide statistics to suggest otherwise- be my guest.

You forgot to say how many dead are acceptable to you before you put up with a tiny bit of inconvenience in your life? As for statistics, I don't need to provide you with an exact ratio of dead to living to ask why your needs and comfort are so much more important that accepting the most basic bit of protection you might be able to offer towards your fellow human beings. And no, my friend is not doing ok, they now have borderline PTSD from watching body after body after body head for the morgue, including a number of their colleagues.

So if you don’t need to provide a ratio, why do you expect me to provide a ratio?

Because everyone knows people are dying, I want to know if you are prepared to say how many need to die before you will take basic steps to protect someone else at the expense of nothing more than your comfort. Or is there no figure that is more important than your own needs?

Well it’s interesting that you can’t answer my challenge with a number of your own. Presumably because, like me, you don’t have one.

I can tell you this. Until I am convinced that I personally have the Rona, and that I am a risk to other people, I will not be willing to wear a mask.

I will look forward to seeing you on rallies supporting the burqa, and any other type of freedom restricting garment the government decides on a whim that we wear. "

Well, I can say it's been an absolute pleasure to add you to my block list. The fact you have just said until you get sick (by which time you could have infected dozens) you aren't prepared to do anything at all to help protect another human being because you don't feel like it says all I and probably a large number of other people need to know. I'll also just point out to you that you can move half way round the world to get away from our government and find others that are also saying people should wear a mask. So glad you know better than dozens of governments with their insistence that in the middle of an unprecedented global pandemic that people should have their "freedom" restricted by being asked to try to avoid killing someone else.

"I just wonder whether an exceptionally militant employee might claim that the company was failing to ensure health and safety in the workplace.

Quite likely, but H&S is the responsibility of everyone which would potentially make the militant employee culpable as well.

I don't make a habit of going to the shops, but those I've been to over the last week have had an employee at the door, wearing a mask, and a box of individually wrapped disposable masks alongside the hand sanitiser.

Haven't seen a single maskless person in a shop, so the message is getting through."

I have seen people without masks in shops, yes they may be exempt but they should be carrying the excemption card

Ok, conspiracy man, what are we being played for? I expect a fully researched response, detailed in all aspects. The reasons for playing us! (does that not succeed only if everyone 'falls' for the 'play') What's to be gained by playing us and the whole public falling for it? What IS the big conspiracy?

Firstly the person you are replying to is correct regarding masks, it even says it in black and white on the packaging that the mask doesn't protect against coronavirus.

Secondly why on earth do you "expect" a fully detailed and reserched response as to why he thinks we are being played.

How about you give a fully detailed and reserched response as to why you think hes wrong about being played about masks.

Instead of just throwing out the conspiracy word to anyone that has a different view to yourself.

It goes both ways.

Simply put in language you understand 'he who alleges must prove'. The overwhelming body of science agrees to their limited help but to quote Trump on hydroxiquoriline 'what's to lose'. We're talking about face mask her ffs. For me to respond properly I need to know what the actual conspiracy is, who's perpitrating it, who's to gain, who's to lose etc. Not some answer on the back of a fag packet. Capeesh!

The way you say you “expect a fully researched response, in all aspects” is not the way Internet forums work. As you well know. Are you asking for some sort of thesis?

You say that studies show that face masks “may” reduce the spread of the virus. The virus that is so lethal that many of the “sufferers” don’t even know they have the bloody thing! Well .... I’m not prepared to accept something that is dehumanising and uncomfortable, anti-social and against all democracy!! Against a “may”.

Dehumanising, ask the veterans who hid in Londons subway during the blitz with gas masks on. Democracy, your a laugh, the majority I would suggest would wear face masks in a shop, as they're sheep!

Londoners during the Blitz faced a very real and extreme danger. Although if the Germans had done to London what we had done to Dresden during the war, a gas mask would have melted straight off of their faces, just like their flesh. But I digress.

As for democracy! Before the new mask rule came in, pretty much written on the back of a fag packet, as someone said above, barely anybody was wearing a mask in shops. If it was such a supported measure- why weren’t they wearing them before it became “illegal” not to do so?

It is not the stores job to enforce mask wearing. As a store manager I ask everyone who is able to to please wear a mask to protect other customers and my staff. My staff deal with hundreds of people a day, our health shouldn't be put at risk for the sake of your shopping.

Pleased to say every shop I went in today, all staff were wearing masks. I find them uncomfortable, but it's about mutual respect and hopefully not spreading the virus. We may be asymptomatic, so we don't know for sure if we can pass it on. People have to do what's right for them I guess...

They make you wear a mask while ordering, when you sit down you can remove the mask.

These two had joined the queue, and were gobbing off about wearing one.

"Even the governments own review of the mask evidence, before bringing the legislation in, states that the evidence for them being beneficial is weak.

So the evidence that routinely available, non-clinical face masks are effective at preventing aerosol spread of viruses is… “weak” and “limited”

Read it yourselves if you wish. You are being 'played'.

https://phe.koha-ptfs.co.uk/cgi-bin/koha/opac-retrieve-file.pl?id=5f043ca658db1188ffae74827fa650d9

Ok, conspiracy man, what are we being played for? I expect a fully researched response, detailed in all aspects. The reasons for playing us! (does that not succeed only if everyone 'falls' for the 'play') What's to be gained by playing us and the whole public falling for it? What IS the big conspiracy?

Firstly the person you are replying to is correct regarding masks, it even says it in black and white on the packaging that the mask doesn't protect against coronavirus.

Secondly why on earth do you "expect" a fully detailed and reserched response as to why he thinks we are being played.

How about you give a fully detailed and reserched response as to why you think hes wrong about being played about masks.

Instead of just throwing out the conspiracy word to anyone that has a different view to yourself.

It goes both ways.

Simply put in language you understand 'he who alleges must prove'. The overwhelming body of science agrees to their limited help but to quote Trump on hydroxiquoriline 'what's to lose'. We're talking about face mask her ffs. For me to respond properly I need to know what the actual conspiracy is, who's perpitrating it, who's to gain, who's to lose etc. Not some answer on the back of a fag packet. Capeesh!

The way you say you “expect a fully researched response, in all aspects” is not the way Internet forums work. As you well know. Are you asking for some sort of thesis?

You say that studies show that face masks “may” reduce the spread of the virus. The virus that is so lethal that many of the “sufferers” don’t even know they have the bloody thing! Well .... I’m not prepared to accept something that is dehumanising and uncomfortable, anti-social and against all democracy!! Against a “may”.

Dehumanising-how?

Uncomfortable-first world problem right there. Mask on in a shop, mask off out of shop. Big fucking deal.

Anti-social--how? Kids who cause vandalism and annoy old people, that's anti-social.

Against democracy - if the majority of people wear them, is this not showing democracy not against it. Are you going to wear one if your in the minority, if not then your against democracy.

When someone throws away a line on Facebook about conspiracy theories, without a shred of evidence, this is how misinformation is spread.

And to add, no one has any human right to wilfully spread disease.

You would have to have it and know you have to wilfully spread it

The stroke of a pen could make it a criminal offence. Going to fight for your selfish rights then, which of course will no longer be a 'right' .

I live in Wales so don't have to fight for anything

It is perfectly legally and acceptable not to wear a mask to a store

But your use of the term wilfull was incorrect in the context you used it

Have a very nice day "

Remember, stroke of a pen. They could make the law, where the burden of proof could ly with you to prove you haven't got it, if you're not wearing a mask.

"I just wonder whether an exceptionally militant employee might claim that the company was failing to ensure health and safety in the workplace.

Quite likely, but H&S is the responsibility of everyone which would potentially make the militant employee culpable as well.

I don't make a habit of going to the shops, but those I've been to over the last week have had an employee at the door, wearing a mask, and a box of individually wrapped disposable masks alongside the hand sanitiser.

Haven't seen a single maskless person in a shop, so the message is getting through. I have seen people without masks in shops, yes they may be exempt but they should be carrying the excemption card "

I work in a retail area with "exempt" punters telling me they cant /dont need to wear a mask (they should be the ones who should ) as they are more vulnerable health wise ...and should wear a visor (like me) at the very least ....but they seem oblivious and ignorant to whats going on .....maybe they should go to the hospital my daughter works in ICU with C/v patients rolling up over the last months and see how they can end up

If you haven't worked it out yet muzzle wearing is all about conditioning people to accept a vaccine. Big pharma doesn't want to miss out on it's payday.

The vaccine (when available) will not be obligatory - so your conspiracy is dead-in-the-water. Also companies like Astra Zenica have already said it will provide 400 million vaccines at 'cost'.

Astra zen alreasy have imdemnity. They cannot be held liable for vacinne damage!

You can buy face masks online, make your own out of old materials (instructions online or have been in newspapers). Or, go to a shop, use a disposable one that many places are making available, buy a few, then you've got your own. Et voila!

The wearing of masks in retail premises is conditional of age and medical exemptions. Otherwise it is mandatory. Like all premises the management reserve the right to refuse entry to any person who they believe is a threat to the security , health and welfare of the staff , customers or visitors. Therefiore the management have a duty of care . If they flagrantly fail that duty of care , Then staff may have a grievance. Further more the occupiers liability act places similar provision as to the duty of care by owners of the property. And by vicarious responsibility to the management ..just my opinion ..lol

Staff should be informed immediately should there be a breach of the rules where upon the perpetrators wil be restrained and forcibly ejaculated from the premises..

"If a store/shop/supermarket fails to enforce wearing of masks,could the employees have a potential health and safety case against the company?

Maybe worth considering to avoid some compensation claims.

No, because plenty of people are exempt from wearing masks as are employees. As there is virtually no scientific evidence that mask wearing is of any value no case would make it to court anyway.

If you haven't worked it out yet muzzle wearing is all about conditioning people to accept a vaccine. Big pharma doesn't want to miss out on it's payday."

Fortunately, what you think is immaterial to the situation.

You either wear a mask when and where it's deemed as being required or face service refusal or a fine.

"I have put a small piece of cloth over my face. I’m wearing a mask saying “”I CANT BREATHE”. I have done so because it’s the new law and because I need to get my food shopping! I’m fairly well convinced I don’t have Covid, I don’t present a risk and I am not at risk.

I absolutely 100% disagree with it, and I will never EVER accept having my face covered as acceptable.

Every asymptomatic carrier is "fairly well convinced" they don't have it. That's why people are still dying or being left with lifelong damage to organs and brain tissue.

But when you look at the stats, that just isn’t true. Yes- at the height of the virus in March/April, it was true. Now- they are scratching around trying to find cases, let alone ICU admissions."

Have you considered the reason why there are less cases is because MOST people are keeping their distance and wearing masks.

That's the whole point.

No but they can refuse entry if not given a valid reason not to wear one.

I think it's about time we made it to show a doctors letter or something along the lines.

If your lucky enough to look under 25 you have to produce id to buy a packet of fags or a bottle of wine...so if you cant wear one through health reasons...back it up and take this fucking serious ffs.
