Mask-wearing becomes a new battleground in England as Covid rules are eased


Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, many countries have introduced laws forcing people to wear face masks and coverings in public places in an effort to stop the spread of the virus.

While for some, face masks are not unusual and have been adopted without complaint, a vocal minority have railed against what they see as an imposition on their personal freedom. Proponents of face coverings cite studies that prove they prevent the spread of Covid-19 and so potentially save lives.

Now, as countries loosen restrictions, the wearing of face masks — or not — looks set to remain just as contentious an issue.

The debate over mask wearing heated up in England Monday after the British government announced that it would become a matter of “personal responsibility” rather than a legal requirement once Covid restrictions are removed, as planned, on July 19.

The move immediately provoked a strong response from people on both sides of the divide, who soon took to Twitter to share their views.

On Tuesday morning, the #WearAMask hashtag was trending on the social media site with debate raging between members of parliament, medical professionals and the public over whether they will (or rather, should) wear a face covering after restrictions end.

Currently, face masks or coverings must be worn in all public indoor settings in England, such as stores, supermarkets, theaters, museums and on public transport unless an individual is exempt for medical reasons. British police have the power to fine anyone £200 ($277) for not wearing a mask.
