Transparent face masks: Where to buy clear coverings for people with hearing problems | INDEPENDENT
Wearing one that covers your mouth can make lip-reading impossible and hinder the 12 million people in the UK who rely on it.
The coronavirus pandemic has meant that face masks and coverings will become part of daily life. The UK government and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have both advised wearing face coverings in a bid to reduce the infection transmission of Covid-19.
As well as on public transport, face coverings are now mandatory in all shops, supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, banks, transport hubs and post offices in England. People who don’t wear one will face a fine of up to £100, apart from people with medical conditions, children under 11 and anyone who has a disability meaning they are not able to use one.
