Clever idea I thought
Wouldn't really do for me Ian. Although the accident was about a year ago the "cut" part of the ear is still incredibly sensitive despite being tidied etc by a plastic surgeon, the cartilage was trimmed and skin closed over it. I still can't bear anything touching the cut face hence the top elastic on the mask going over the top of my head.

It is a very difficult situation and I think we need to be more tolerant when asked to wear a mask, no matter how silly or frustrating it may seem.
I don't think others should be mandating dress. I thought this was made clear with head scarves? What happened to 'my body, my choice'?

Seem? There is barely any evidence that wearing a nonsurgical mask in a nonsurgical setting is in any way useful (never mind if it outweighed the negative effects of doing so).

So I would be relaxed about that. People who are not always have the option of masking or deliveries too. Maybe a mask-free day?!

your body, your choice.

What about my body, and my choice?

Let's flip this. If I was in the final stages of recovering from Covid-19, how would you feel that I wasnt wearing a mask, around the magic 2 metres of you, and somehow you were aware of it, perhaps even walking by you in an aisle? Is it still my body, my choice......

Or how about if I was feeling the beginning of the symptoms and rushed out to buy provisions for the next fortnight, but had no mask? This is a selfish reality of some sections of our society. But hey, it is my body, I do not want to wear a mask.

A mask is useful, physiology and physics dictates this. You sneeze or cough, the majority of any expelled moisture/air is absorbed or at least its expulsion is heavily retarded by the covering, thereby reducing the risk. It does not eliminate it, and I do not think anyone has said it did, but it will reduce.

I do not know any figures, but even a 1% reduction in this risk of transmission is surely better than none.

It's amazing how regulations change with the wind. I've yet to see a motorcycle helmet being worn in a shop. It is constructed similarly to the mask but in a more effective way.

The mouth area is absolutely impervious to THE VIRUS. The whole face is absolutely impervious to THE VIRUS. I wonder how far a wearer would get into a supermarket before being told face coverings are banned. Yet the area covered by a mask is just as effective a disguise as the helmet. Especially those huge black ones the cover the bridge of the nose down to the epiglottis.
