I read with interest your article on page 1 and 5 (CCN August 7) re masks being used by Woolworths staff.
When I visited (mask on) the Umina Beach store on Thursday August 6 I encountered a staff member in the vegetable section who was not wearing a mask.
As Woolies have gone out to say that their staff will be wearing masks, I asked this man if that was not true.
He looked at me rather defiantly and said, “it is not compulsory”.
I said “but your management have encouraged customers to wear masks”.
“It is not compulsory.”
Bad form, I think.
The virus does not discriminate.
I won’t be going back.
