Lol I do think it is a bit weird. Even my dad who is very obsessive doesn't wear it in a car by himself. Why dont you wear in it the shop? You work for the nhs don't you surely it would be better to? Not having a go there are times where I feel I should wear it and dont i just wondered

I don't have to wear one if I want with my COPD & asthma but it all depends on the weather if its hot & humid then I wear it only covering my mouth in case I cough or sneeze as I suffer from hayfever,  sometimes if it's hot then my breathing suffers so I take it off but if I go into a shop I will do the latter mentioned and just cover my mouth.

If your breath were to reach as far as my imaginary car Stanley I could wear 100 masks on top of each other and they still wouldn't do the job

I do, although during the pandemic I'd sometimes leave my mask in my car and run back to get it whereas now I just risk it and go without. 

I'd say I'm 80/20 in terms of mask wearing as I don't mind them at all and wear them not just for Covid, but just so I don't catch anything else from scruffs around me.

It's still during the pandemic though...

I only wear a mask now when I'm entering someplace that requires me to wear one - right now there's no mask mandate where I'm living as long as you're vaccinated (although I'm 100% sure unvaccinated people are also not going around wearing masks)... but private businesses here can have their own requirements on whether you're required to wear a mask or show proof of vaccination before entry.

It's still required here in shops, public indoor areas and public transport etc. Even if it wasn't required, I think I'll keep wearing it in those places. Haven't been sick at all since wearing a mask, and it's not really a big effort.

Me and the wife has got used to it now and tbh with my conditions I will still try and wear it if possible, just my luck I would stop wearing it and BANG...I will get hit with the virus.

I saw one of these people the other day. We were at a standstill at the traffic lights and i just burst out laughing at him. His reaction didn't look great, but then again i could only see his eyes.

No. Mainly as it seemed vague & debatable if they were useful. Way back early on, ITVs Dr Hillary thoroughly rubbished the suggestions before it eventually became obligatory in England.

It feels like those who still do wear them are those that were involved in the most nervous shielding. Or just making sure all know they don't vote for a certain party.

But I enjoy fresh air too much to care for anyone applying excessive political slants to it all.

I have to in work whenever I get up from my desk.

Overall I'm a little bit more relaxed about it - now I will briefly take my mask off in a relatively large space like a train station to drink or eat something away from other people, which I wouldn't have done before.

Otherwise I am still pretty much 100% about wearing my mask in any indoor space, and there are moments I will quickly put it on outside if I have to walk through a crowd of people, like at a bus stop.

Seen that a few times. Think they should all be loaded into a rocket and shot into the centre of the sun myself. 

As for me, Wales has slightly different rules around face masks, so I have to wear them when going into shops, to healthcare settings like hospitals and on public transport as it's still mandatory (same with going into the office, though they can be taken off when at my desk). However, pubs, cafes and restaurants don't require a face mask at all now. 

Interestingly, I went to see my folks in Exeter back at the beginning of August and could see that despite face masks being optional in England from 19th July, most still wore them when inside shops and the like. I'm heading down again on Wednesday so will be interesting to see if people are still doing that or not so much now.

I stopped wearing it shortly after I got my second dose of the vaccine in April.  But recently with cases picking up again I started wearing it in shops, etc.  Don't have to wear it at work as the vaccine was mandatory for all employees (and we got paid to get it!), but I have a private office with a door so there's no one near me for the majority of the day.

My wife has worn it religiously throughout all of this mess and she was the one that convinced me to go back to wearing it again.

For the most part, I'm not wearing a mask now. The only time I am doing is if there are a lot of people in a small confined space so I wore one at both gigs I've been to lately and sometimes in the supermarket if it's particularly busy.

Its still mandatory to wear a mask in Melbourne, anywhere outside of your own property, regardless whether outdoors or indoors, with a $400 fine if you take it off.

Recently the rules were relaxed to allow you to pull your mask down to take a sip of coffee whilst at a playground, as that had been prohibited. There is talk that this week they will relax it to allow you to lower your mask to consume alcohol.

My bigger peeve is that schools will reopen next week and all kids in grade 3 and above are mandated to wear them in the classroom. It's strongly recommended for younger kids to wear them but not mandatory.

Good smells don't travel unfortunately, just farts and coffee breathe xD

Funny you should mention that we live behind the local sewer works (Seafield) and if the wind is blowing the wrong way it stinks, all the locals have kicked up about the smell but the complaints just fall on council fucking deaf ears.

Anyway, about 6 weeks ago I let off a silent fart and it bloody stunk to the high heavens, I could see the wife twitching her nose and then she said "Bloody hell, did you just fart or is that Seafield I can smell?" I just smiled and said "Seafield darling and I can tell you have not got Covid as your sense of smell is still good..."

She then got up and closed the flat window then realised it was not Seafield but me and my silent fart, she then yelled out "that bloody stinks..." and rushed and opened the window again holding her nose. xD

There is a very influential group of scientists here called OzSage who are still driving for covid to be mostly eliminated here and seem like ideological extremists to me. They were in favour of masking down to 2 years old, as is being done in some parts of the US.

I should imagine you would be getting unlimited fines if you were out there...

Our upper management are a bunch of tossers in that regard....

We just recently had a meeting where a lot of the staff are asking to not have to wear them anymore but in typical HR fashion they are keeping them in place under the guise of 'duty of care' to it's staff which would be fine if they were not so full of shit... For example only staff downstairs working in the factory have to wear them for 11 hours a day where in the office they have given themselves special exemption if they are sitting at their desks.. I was not aware that the virus knows not to stray beyond the boundary of a desk.

Also they recently changed the finish times from 6:30pm back to 7pm which now means all the staff coming in and leaving gather in large numbers in the changing rooms and this can be between 70 and a 100 people at any one time, They had the early finishes in place to keep social distancing and the risk of shift interaction reduced but have now abandoned that because in typical work fashion getting an extra half an hour from each person works in the company's favour of course... 

At the same time they were asked if the bars that have been put up in the smoking areas can now be removed to allow more people to sit down during their breaks ( they have blocked off half of the seating areas with bars and barriers for social distancing ) and they were told a risk assessment would need to be carried out first.. And they wonder why people are pissed off and leaving the business, We have had 5 people leave in the last shift alone.. they will never learn
