Rules for all
I have recently been informed by a young supermarket worker that a significant number of shoppers are not wearing face coverings.
She queried why this wasn’t being addressed and was advised by her manager that profit was the main consideration and there was a concern that shoppers would go elsewhere if there was insistence on compliance with the face covering rule.
The answer to this seems obvious and straightforward.
All shops should have a worker at the entrance reminding customers that the wearing of masks/ face coverings is mandatory.
Those who are genuinely exempt should have evidence to that effect.
If all shops take responsibility for compliance with the rules then going elsewhere to flout them will be pointless. — MARIAN GREEN, Elston, via email.
