Face Masks

Hello 

I am currently undergoing chemotherapy & today I went for my blood test before chemo tomorrow at the cancer clinic. To my surprise I was only one wearing a mask, I am not sick just wanting to protect myself re covird 19. The nurses, receptionist, other patients not wearing them! I would of thought with myself and others being immune compromised everyone entering would/should be wearing them?

Morning @Lisy!

 

Interesting, did you happen to ask the staff there at all?

 

What do others here think? Have you been wearing masks to treatment or even out and about?

Re: Face Masks

Hi Lisy,

I always wear a mask when I go out, & lately, disposable gloves. My understanding is at the moment, the authorities don't think it's airborne & so don't consider wearing masks a necessity. Pretty silly if you ask me.

Take care
Budgie
