With our latest "Circuit Breaker" lockdown now in force, local residents are encouraged to wear face coverings when out and about and in public places.
Our local GP surgery has posted on social media that face masks must be worn when attending the surgery. They had put out a box of 250 masks at the main entrance on the first day so that patients could put them on before entering the reception area. Unfortunately, it seems that many people appear to have taken rather more than one at a time and these have all quickly disappeared. They have not had 250 patients in one day!
The masks have had to be removed from the main entrance now and patients have to bring their own, or request one from the reception desk when they book in.
It is very disappointing to realise just how selfish some people have been already. It is only planned to be a 21 day lockdown for goodness sake.
