    As in the title really .

    With over 26 million people in the UK having both vaccinations ( source BBC ) isnt it about time we said good bye to the face coverings . Thats why 26 million of us plus a small number that are naturally immune anyway sacrificed various side effects in an effort to regain some of our liberties .

    The 26 million people are about as immune as they will never be and some who have had Covid as well are "Super Immune" ( quote Patrick Vallance) . Yet despite this there is no let off for face covering wearing and some like me find wearing of these unbearable for long periods when the weather is hot.

    Just to add more weight in the debate , the USA have now withdrawn face coverings for those who have had both vaccinations.

    I think its about time we did the same.

    My mate was in the waiting room of a hospital radiology department yesterday, watching a grown adult have a screaming temper tantrum because she wouldn't be admitted without a mask.
    In my county, less than 1 in 4 got vaccinated; they never wore masks and still adamantly refuse, regardless of CDC guidelines; they'd rather contract (or spread) a potentially debilitating or fatal disease than to risk being mistaken for a hated Democrat. Therefore when I go out in public, I simply assume nobody's vaccinated, and mask up accordingly. Besides; I certainly do not want to be mistaken for one of them.
    I don't know that Europeans can even begin to grasp the level of willful ignorance and intentional stupidity among the populace of the United States now.

    Thanks for your input .In the UK all the vulnerable people have been offered the Vacinne and the double vaccine of this group is expected to be completed by the 21st June .
    For hospitals though that would be an exception for me .But for pubs supermarkets and shops ,there is no real need .That's the whole idea of having the Vacinne to get back to normal as best as we can .

    Some people should never take them off.

    In the US. The state I'm from exempt people who got both shots from wearing a mask. There are exemptions of course. Those who are not vaccinated. Must wear mask when indoors except in their home.

    ^^^^^
    Same here, I see some with a mask, some not, I see no issues with wearing a mask if you choose,
    Those that add politics to the mix = ignorance

    All things considered I'd rather not wear a mask, though the inconvenience is small to me. I'm fully vaccinated so I shouldn't have to wear one. But if someone insists I wear one, or a reputable, scientific authority recommends I wear one under certain circumstances, I won't throw a hissy fit about it.

    Well its not just the face coverings its everything else that should be returned when you are double vaccinated . Thats one of the reasons to be vaccinated so that we are not locked down for the rest of our lives tip toeing around others.
