Still fuming here.
Businesses that can stay open are closing or finding new ways to work to reduce risk to employees.
NHS workers are still refused use of masks unless a patient has symptoms of coronavirus.
THIS IS UNEQUIVOCALLY NOT ACCEPTABLE WHEN SOCIAL DISTANCING IS IN FORCE FOR EVERYONE ELSE!
edit: this means that nhs staff are not allowed or permitted to wear masks when breaching the personal space of non symptomatic people. Gps might get away with breaking this enforcement. Hospital staff will not.
.... I am therefore clueless and consider it a disservice to my profession that elderly (at risk) retired health care workers and clinicians are putting themselves on the line without demanding ppe by contract... Its not heroism IT IS STUPIDITY!
