The rules are very different over here. The Welsh government sticks to the scientific advice that masks are of very limited value. But we do have to wear them on public transport.I was in Wales for a few weeks with work and combined it with a summer holiday went around, nobody there I see wears masks at all no one in shops or anything, just as they were I was pretty amazed actually
Personally I think this is wrong. Masks may be of very limited value, but the twats refusing to wear them identify themselves as the sort of twats unlikely to follow any advice. Therefore you know to stay well clear.
(EDIT: Quick switch of "advise" to "advice"; I can never get that spelling correct first thyme )
