is there any point in this web site anymore ? There are at least 2 others that actually have interesting information about what's going on in the area we love to visit.

So OK, you 2 wont wear a mask, we have got that so I am sure the rest of the posters on here along with myself have had enough.

Just one other thing, I don't think we will ever meet, but should we, don't be offended if I tell you to pi55 off

In the UK staff in shops, pubs and restaurants can wear whatever they want or no mask at all. I have seen a complete mixture, some wear a mask over their mouth but not their nose. Some wear tiny plastic visors over their nose and mouth, most wear nothing.

In Spain it has to be a proper mask with some filtration properties to a standard, although in practice I have seen the plain cloth designer ones used.

Even the chancellor of the exchequer in the mail had the same visor on that I purchased

Whilst I am no expert in face mask and don't want to contradict staff in chemist and supermarkets near us are wearing the same visor that I bought

Personally I find it impossible to stop touching my face as it is an unconscious reflex action. And if you watch people of TV they always touch their mask as it slips down their nose while talking. Most people here wear them round their necks in between shops.

In Spain you have to put it on in a bar when you are not eating or drinking, so between each course and each beer. So each time you would be faffing about with plastic bags and hand sanitiser.  I don't think so, especially after a few beers. On the other hand the WHO say not to take it on and off.

I prefer the UK where I don't need to wear a mask outside or in a bar. Outside is no problem as I keep 2m distance and not had a problem in six months. In a bar I accept the small risk of catching it because the risk is much less than the chance I will be dead in a year's time.

Common sense, you could use disposable ones or take sanitizer with you, but that would cost a few pennies extra, Oh that was daft of me to suggest that to you.

Maybe if you wear it properly but nobody does and no substitute for social distancing. Do you all follow these instructions religiously like your life depends on it?
  • Wash or sanitize your hands before and after putting on and taking off your mask.
  • Place your mask over your mouth and nose.
  • Don't touch your mask while wearing it.
  • If you accidentally touch your mask, wash or sanitize your hands.
  • If your mask becomes wet or dirty, switch to a clean one. Put the used mask in a sealable bag until you can wash it.
  • Remove the mask by untying it or lifting off the ear loops without touching the front of the mask or your face.
  • Wash your hands immediately after removing your mask.
Not very practical when you have to wear it all day when out and about and keep taking it on and off in bars and restaurants.

You 2 take the biscuit one day you might catch this virus and when you are ITU on a ventilator you might think, although that mask was uncomfortable I wished I had warn it.

And nophead don't give me the crap about it does not help those that wear them, the scientific advice is it can help wearing one

Unfortunately visors are not allowed as a substitute for a mask in Tenerife.
