People with breathing issues etc who cannot use a face mask must surely be able to wear a visor? 

I use a visor purely because my specs mist up when I wear a mask

I read this too Roobarb and am pleased to see things are getting tighter as I felt some stores were getting lax!
The Lidlís I usually shop in was very good but slowly slipped and last week when I went I was horrified to see so many Ďcouplesí shopping... fine if one needs help but most didnít... granted I usually go early morning when itís empty but my c n c was between 2-3pm at Waitrose....
I hope they tighten things up although Iíve decided for next few weeks to get all from Waitrose I think... although more expensive to do so... unless I get up at the crack of sparrow...
Iím sure others will follow Morrisonís & Sainsburyís lead... 🤞

CaroleW, I would think that people with breathing issues would be keen to do so to protect themselves. The requirement is for a face covering rather than a mask in particular so I'm sure that would be acceptable to the supermarkets.

I've worn a mask since it started, but most didn't at first, now they do though in the one and only shop I use.
But it doesn't stop people reaching over my shoulder to get something from the shelf. I've had to remind more than one person what 6ft is  ::)

I, too, am pleased to see this.  My local Sainsburys has been very good at checking people in and reminding people to keep a safe distance.  Even their people doing orders move out of the way for customers. (I do go at 8am for the session that is priority for older ones)

In contrast, Tesco, which is a much bigger store, allows couples in.  Annoyingly their staff cluster in groups to chat. Almost as if the fact they are wearing masks means they can get as close as they want.  Interestingly, that is the store in town that has had a confirmed Covid case, and as a result several more staff had to isolate.

I shopped last week, and even though I am running low on some things I have determined not to shop this week, but to use what I have.

I'm happy to do my bit and just wish that others had the same feeling of responsibility.

Unfortunately you see those who wear their masks to enter the shop but remove them while shopping.

I wore  a mask right from the beginning, then I bought a visor and was told we were not allowed to wear them in church, so I have been making my own which comes right underneath my glasses on the bridge of my nose and if I have it high enough my specs don't mist up but I have to get it just right, I took the strip out of an NHS mask and put it into my home made ones, I can press it to the shape of my nose to make it secure

I just want to stay safe, we are all getting so much more worried about the situation now, if everyone was to adhere to the rules it would be so much better and we might return to near normal by Easter time and possibly less deaths of our loved ones
