If I do catch, (assuming I haven't already had it in January) I don't think I will be troubling any doctors or nurses because I don't have any preconditions that I know of, so the chances of me being ill are vanishing small.

I don't like the face masks at all they make you feel hot and breathe less

On the market stall they were visors which I bought one and they are 110 percent better

No sure of the safety though

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

What type of mask you have to wear, when you have to wear it and how effective it might be at protecting you seems totally relevant in a discussion titled "Restrictions" to me.

Yes with schools open it has gone crazy in the UK because with 1 in 1400 of the population having it most schools are more than likely to have cases. Also with everybody isolated for so long they are all getting colds to confuse the issue.

I won't wear a mask, hence I've stopped going into shops and have cancelled my el sombrero holiday for December. I agree with nophead. Masks are useless as 99 per cent of population don't wear them correctly.

If everything is closed and there are no holidays the only thing we discuss is the recent upgrades to the area and the proposed car park in the pablado marinero area

Please let me know what else is happening

I was hoping this mask subject would be finished but alas

nophead, you are so clever you don't even realise to wear a mask is to try and safe guard others.

Sandy Lea, I am sure the people in Tenerife are glad of your decision, & what are you going to do if it is made law in the UK or Tenerife

Georgie, why do you want the information, like Sandy Lea you also have cancelled your booking.

My wife & myself, can not wait to have our 3 months in Tenerife if we are allowed

And finally will somebody please close this mask subject

If you didnít wear a mask correctly in Tenerife a hefty fine might concentrate your mind.
 I wear a mask, both in Tenerife and Uk because if I have Covid and am asymtomatic or if it is discovered in two or three months time that wearing one limits your chances of catching the virus then I figure I've lost nothing, And in the meantime, I am doing everything I can to ensure I donít infect someone else. Doesnít cause me inconvenience, doesnít bother me to wear a mask even in 40į in Tenerife compared with what damage I may be inflicting on someone else. Iím not a scientist, epidemiologist, virologist or in any way qualified medically so I am ignorant and therefore respect the advice from people more qualified than myself.

Iím over 70, have buried a daughter at 32, have a husband with Alzheimerís and so daily I do everything I can to make life a bit easier. Wearing a mask compared to daily problems is such a minor inconvenience I canít be doing with all this chest thumping about how hard it is to wear a piece of material across your nose and mouth, and yes I do have asthma before anyone else starts. For heavenís sake, how do you think people managed in ww2, or cope now in some of these countries where war ravaged your homes and very existence. What a load of wimps weíve bred, who find wearing a mask so uncomfortable, against their human rights etc.etc. MAN UP, GET A GRIP and stop winging.

Yes I know they are mainly to protect others, that is what surgical masks are designed for, but I was replying to:

So make up your mind.

They make some sense in places you can't distance and that is where we have to wear them in the UK. Shops and public transport, etc. They don't make sense outside if you can distance.

In bars and restaurants you have to remove them to eat and drink, so not much point in wearing them in the brief periods in between. People don't need to go into bars and restaurants if they want to avoid catching it. Those are the only places I go I consider there is some risk.  People who are vulnerable should avoid them.

angiebabes, sorry to hear about your daughter and husband. Both my parents had dementia and my father had Alzheimerís when he was younger than I am now, when I was in my teens. It's a much bigger problem than Covid and it is far more likely that or cancer will kill us but governments don't put anything like the money or effort into finding cures. I wonder why.

Sandy Lea, as a resident of LG for more than 25 years I can assure you that we would love to welcome back the tourists but just not you and Nophead with your negative opinionated attitudes.
