Mum's friend turned up on Sunday to administer Holy Communion, she had been attending with a mask but not on this occasion saying it had been forgotten. I had to be quite firm in saying it was a must do thing, her reply was she had been told (by whomever) it wasn't of much use anyway. I disagreed stating that having been a clinician for seventeen years the evidence was strongly in favour of such measures; I also informed her that she was not being singled out and that all visitors were expected to wear one. As she only lived around the corner my mum's friend popped home to fetch one before returning ten minutes later... I was told there was no need to apologise as she understood my position - to which I replied I wasn't!! Don't get me wrong she's a good friend but it can be so frustrating sometimes.I’m disappointed that the country and system doesnt seem to have learned from the pandemic - especially in protecting the vulnerable. We know masks and distancing protect people so it does seem non sensical not to use them around the highest at risk. Surely the cost of masks at pennies is cheaper too than having some one elderly admitted for covid or flu.
Also I struggle that people are still determined to go in to the office full of bugs….many a time I have heard…’oh I shouldnt be here’……well that’s too late for the immunosuppressed person in the table over the way 😢
And the office thing? Bonkers! Especially if one's working in this field 🤔
