I'd like to leave you with one thought, but I'm not sure you have anywhere to put it!

It's a good line, but you should cite your source....

So  questions/thoughts about stores requiring masks:

 

Whose job is it to tell the customers to wear a mask?

The employee, the supervisor, the owner or.....?

If the person fails to put on a mask does the store call the police, the public health officer or the by law enforcement officer?

 

My employer requires face masks to be worn if you are not in your car or eating. However why would I get within 6 feet of someone to tell them to put one on?

Isn't it a lot easier to get the virus from being too close to people?

 

given news stories of violence or verbal abuse towards employees trying to inform people of a mask policy, why would any employee risk it?

 

goes back to, who enforces a no mask policy; answer almost no-one?

Do it yourself, G....just make sure your phone is ready to record the response:

Don't have a cell phone, but not a bad idea.

Wife of a co worker was on the receiving end of a 5 minute tirade from a customer at a upscale corner store here in Powell River. Also one employee at a chain super market was spat on by a covidiot.

 

My cat, even with his nightly crazy time, is more rational than a lot of people

it is most likely the employee's responsibility, but im sure a supervisor will tell you whose responsibility it is. if a customer fails to wear a mask, you refuse service and ask them to leave. if the customer refuses to leave and is causing a disturbance you would call the police.

 

if you take on the responsibilty of telling people to put on thier mask, you have every right to do so at a safe distance. you can always refuse unsafe work, you will not be penalized for it.

 

there is almost zero risk to inform them to wear a mask as long as you take precautions. 

 

sadly many people dont wear masks despite the rules. many people also have trouble/wont enforce for many reasons. you would be doing your part by intervening and many would appreciate it.

Getting tired of Dr. B and Horgan tell BCers to do our part..... keep blaming people for spreading a highly contagious air born virus.....

 

How about Horgan and DR B  DO  their part for a change and come with a MANDATORY mask law for people in stores and for highschool students.....

Fine, but who enforces it?

Cops, by law officers, or public health inspectors. Maybe all of them?

I hate headlines like this. This $&!# just contributes to our collective dumbness. There's no evidence of a link, at all. 13/19,000,000 people :picard:

Store employees - level 1

Store Security  if they have onsite - Level 2

Store manager - level 3

Police - level 4

 

Basically just tell the customer to leave the store.....    Tell them the cashier will not  ring up your item...  police are being notified and you will be fined.

 

I think quickly customers will step up and reinforce this message.

 

This is alrealy happening in pretty much across Canada today as we speak. My relatives back east tell me... every single person in their town is masked on in stores...

KICKED out with no mask.   100% compliance in their town.  BC is a joke.

well, you'd hope in a rational society, you would for yourself. 

 

But, we're in the golden age of bull$&!#. People are choosing to risk death cuz a meme said so.

My point is, you're the exact type of person that generally thinks you're smarter than those around you as evidenced by your posts.  But endlessly and inevitably you rely on one tangent to get your point across and refuse any other potential avenue of thought.

 

As I said, you think quite highly of yourself and it's obvious

we're joking, but its actually true. 4/10 Americans (and probably Canadians) have facebook as their primary news source. 

 

I'd say our collective intelligence in North America is at about a grade 5 level but that would be an insult to kids in grade 5.

I'm with you on the social media part. Watching public discourse go into the toilet over the last 20 years has been depressing.
