    Default Face Masks and wearing Glasses

    Ok, today was my first day back at work after a minor op, and first day wearing a face mask (Victoria), I also wear glasses. Well it was a clear day, but anyone seeing me would have thought it was foggy.

    Has anyone found a solution to your glass's fogging up while wearing a face mask, its even worse when wearing safety glasses over top of your normal ones. I ended up mowing without my glasses, but that was a blur because of my eye sight.

    Any suggestions.

    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    Had the exact same problem. Bought a face shield form Bunnings like this. Gives you eye protection as well as complying with the mask rule. So far so good. https://www.bunnings.com.au/protecto...hield_p5821922

    Got Wolfsnout's for all of our guys & girls. Got a heap about 12 months ago. A little fogging occasionally

    Wear them while working, surgical type masks while driving & P2 while shopping etc

    What a classic.! Probably got dobbed in by locals. Had a similar thing happen the other day but no cops. All it takes is someone passing by and take a photo of your trailer, signage and post it on social media and you’ll be famous for the wrong reasons.

    Now that’ll be good for business Don’t know what the problem is with these anti- maskers. Just wear the bloody thing and get on with it so we can hopefully get over our lives being on hold.

    This thing is highly contagious. Assume that everyone has it.

    It's going to take a bit more than a few cops being hard on people to get this under control now!
    Too many people will stretch the limits when partial lock downs are in place for the second, third, fourth times. Need a total lock down, zero tolerance and the Vic & Federal government to dig deeper into their pockets to look after the people who are really hurting.
    Get it under control, get back to covid normal, (keep masks etc) get the economy going again and throw money at investments such as critical infrastructure, encourage business to manufacture things back in Australia with incentives and tariffs etc(then who cares if my air filters for the husky take 6 weeks to come into Australia)

    Unfortunately its the younger generations who will pay for this in the long run so we need to look at a whole lot more to take the burden off their shoulders. This unfortunately will likely be handled like the covid 19 situation. The powers to be wont go into seriously enough to really make a difference.

    I'm only a lawnie though, many educated people are making these decisions to look after the average aussie then they retire on a average parlimentary pension

    Anyway off to work, hope its a little warmer than the brisk 4c at 7 am yesterday

    Unfortunately, the educated people are the doctors, but the pollies are more interested in economics than doing the right thing for us, the people who put the mongrels there
