We may well be in a (temporary) situation where the current high infection rate has to trump legislation covering disabilities for the greater.Compliance relatively high in stores but some customers react badly to compulsory face mask ruleswww.theguardian.com
An interesting article in the Guardian. This quote from a security guard is concerning.
“Some customers wear the flower lanyard [to signify hidden disabilities], others will produce medical papers as evidence. But with people who seem relatively young, healthy and able-bodied, it can be very difficult for us when they have no proof that they are exempt,” said one member of staff. In these cases, however, they are asked to leave, he said.
As I understand it the law says that you do not have to provide proof and should not be routinely challenged. In any case doctors are not giving out proof. So if like me your relatively young (mid 30's) have no apparent dyabilities, based upon my appearance and no proof am I not allowed to go shopping?
It's a sad situation that we are in when people are being discriminated against like this and a large part of the population is stood behind cheering them on. People would do well to think that one day they may have a hidden disability themselves and think how they would want to be treated. 10 years ago I was in good health and believe me a disability can happen to anyone, with no warning and nothing you can do about it.
Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
To be blunt letting people in without masks could lead to the death of someone. Not allowing a few people who won't declare an exemption won't kill them. They could get someone to the shopping for them or shop online etc.
I hate masks but am happy to go along with them during the current legislation. I also find those that kick off about masks and refusing to wear them are generally those without any real reason except belligerence.
