I was just wondering if people still wore masks when out and about like shopping and other places. I still wear a mask as I am Immune Compromised but I do get some funny looks now like why are you wearing that for?

Want more real mum questions sent to you?

  • No I don’t wear a mask.

  • i do wear if i am on public transport. not for casual visits anymore.

  • If I’m around my dad I do, he’s also immuno-compromised. He and my mum still wear theirs every where and get a lot of looks/questions. Whatever keeps you safe, I say!

  • No, but I have had five vaccinations and even though I know I have been exposed to Covid, I have either not had it or have been asymptomatic.

  • If I feel sick I will wear mask,or I need to go hospital.

  • No, but if I see someone wearing one it doesn’t bother me. That’s their choice. If it protects you then keep doing it and don’t worry about other people’s opinions.

  • It depends where I am and the season. I have an autoimmune disease. So cold and flu season I definitely wear a mask EVERYWHERE.

    At this time of year I gauge it on how I’m feeling (if I feel run down or am having a flare, I’ll wear a mask) and how crowded a place is, if i’m outside all that type of thing. If I feel it necessary I’ll wear a mask. Or if I go to place and they asl me to wear one I will.

    As someone who is immunocompromised I will do what I have to keep myself and those around me healthy.

  • I still wear one to see the doctor or in crowded places!

  • No. I rarely wore them when they were mandated. Some places still require the wearing of masks, eg my GP, and I wear one then. That’s it

  • No. I’m a nurse and we’ve only recently stopped wearing them at work! (Unless we need to).

  • Hey I am also immune compromised. I don’t wear a mask anymore unless it’s required by the place I am at, as an example the psychologist office.

  • I wear a mask myself when I am unwell to protect others. It also depends on the location I am going, when there was the Influenza flare recently and I had to go to crowded areas I wore one, but don’t regularly.

  • I think the living in fear is pathetic, but thay is different for the immune compromised

  • I only wear a mask at the doctor’s now. I was at a hospital yesterday and they didn’t request that you wear one, they did have some available if you wanted one but at the Cancer Clinic I went to last week you still needed to wear one, which I had no problem doing but I do not wear one the rest of the time.

  • It depends on the situation. Yes at the doctor’s or unfortunately at the hospital. Yes on planes & public transport but no pretty much other times. Mostly I think it’s because there’s often no visual cues to pull it out and put it on.
