At the moment its where 2m distancing can't be done, but they are scrapping that so its bound to be full stop once that goes

Compulsory on public transport.

You are encouraged to wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing is problematic.

Do non visor cloth masks stop the particles from any type of virus known to man?

Clear face masks, hiding your face makes you anonymous

Not convinced cloth can stop 150 nanometer sized virus particles.

it's long overdue. Other countries with fewer deaths was compulsory some time ago.

Another Government shambles in the making? every where I go business is spending  time and money on 2m signage in preparation for opening on Monday, only for the Government to abandon it a few days later.

Boris backed down as Whitty and Valance threatened to resign if 2m lessened,so 2m it is for the time being it seems.
Desperate attempt by the media to convince people the shops are safe by showing what looks the the only available queues outside obviously Primark.

2 metre spacing is useful for one metre spacing

You just draw lines one metre from 2 metre lines
in between the two metre lines

The media have gone from terrorising people with docu soaps from "inside a warzone", to telling everyone its perfectly fine and you should go out shopping

I knew they'd pull this stunt, these people outdo themselves weekly nowadays

From coffins being shown and telling us that's you and I, to "go and shop and save the economy" within 2 months

Crazy

I believe a 2m social distancing measure is only for a short while, and will be reduced within weeks; Germany exercised a social distancing policy of at least 1.5m during lockdown too.

I think those businesses that have been allowed to trade at present just need to do their best for the time being. Others eg hairdressers/pubs, etc, have yet to be allowed to resume trading.

I didn't realise the "Race to the Bottom" for levels of journalism would be over so quickly, but it appears that we have reached the nadir.

Two metres was probably a Government adviser's "best guess" at an acceptable level of risk that the GBP would accept.  Now it is proving difficult to remove it, and in the meantime the printing and marketing people have been running presses at double speed to generate all of these ridiculous stickers that we are now having to  endure.

Will they ever admit that all of these measures were pointless?  I doubt it in my lifetime, but who knows after that...

Yes,when you stand back and look at it,you have to almost laugh despite its tragic outcomes,i believe there is a media push/"nudge" to keep the high street alive.
It seems to me and hope i'm wrong but a certain "look we have to chance it as the well is nearly dry" is coming into play, other countries taking simlar steps have a lot less cases, a kinda martinggale system now.

I'd take the advice and social distancing measure from government and health experts with a pinch of salt. Instead try and follow what's been happening in other European countries and the Far East. Nothing beats proven measures in tackling Covid-19.

exactly what I have been saying for months to the "there's no downside to wearing a mask" brigade

take your fkin masks off idiots
Report lapsy pa June 15, 2020 4:11 PM BST
Don't think anyone said there wasn't a downside,certainly not a "brigade",prolonged mask wearing as in the poor girl above is a different thing.
Most i think advocated using one in a public place like a tube,train,supermarket for maybe an hour,that makes sense. Prolonged use ought not to be allowed by employers maybe?

So it wasn't a freebie after all, and what about extra Universal Credit payments as well? are they going to have to be paid back as well?
