Indeed it does, but these decisions are still being made in a virtual knowledge blackout. Nobody knows for certain that one courseof action is better than another and I doubt that will be known for some time after the crisis during the wash-up.Whoever is running the Government, they're not doing themselves any favours with this ongoing dithering and very public debate about the wearing of face coverings. I suspect that it started out as the usual "kite-flying" of policy to try to determine public opinion, but it now just looks like muddled indecision.
However, why are people making such a huge fuss over this? It does not need government dictat, if you feel wearing a mask helps then wear one.
For once I am with Ms Sturgeon when she says this is not an excuse to go off in one with someone not wearing a mask. Basically telling folks to get a life and let their common sense kick in.
