Supermarkets were facing a mask backlash from shoppers on Monday amid complaints that staff, rather than customers, were failing to follow face-covering advice.

Many retailers have said they will continue to ask customers to wear face masks when they shop after legal requirements were lifted.

Guidance from the Government says the public are "expected" to wear face coverings in enclosed indoor spaces to stem soaring Covid infection rates across Britain.

However, as shops opened their doors on what has been called "Freedom Day", it soon became clear that the announcements had created confusion around the use of face coverings.

Customers from dozens of Sainsbury's branches across the country flooded social media with complaints about the number of staff choosing not to wear masks.

I Call True: The problem is that this is not enforceable so the staff can do what ever they want and not be prosecuted (as can customers!)

So expect to hear a lot of stories like this

No way should the staff be forced to wear masks all shift. And neither should anyone else for that matter. People should realise that they can't control the behaviour and lives of others.

Cant be one rule for one and one for another, Johnson may like to think it is that way but it's not.
Its now down to personal choice, like it or lump it.

As I predicted the other day this was going to cause problems for businesses and customers alike when the government said what they 'expected' rather than enforced https://bit.ly/3iaE1V7
