Dr Susan Hopkins, from Public Health England, said: "The consensus view is very strongly to not advise school children of primary school age to wear face coverings."They can have difficulties wearing them and keeping them on all day, and it’s really important they can see facial expressions in order to develop their communication and language skills."

Running with a mask? Are you kidding me? That’ll affect the health of the runner, this is even more ridiculous now. No one should adhere to this unless they want to kill themselves So don't puff and pant then 😜 Interesting !!!!😷 +🏃‍♂️= 🤣🤣🤣 Get real as running too much with face covering can cause cardiac arrest think c...s as once everything is back to normal, these crap things are fit for the history books

And gyms are going to open 😂 you could’nt make it up ! Mabey they should shove a cork up their ass to stop them farting as well. More disinformation from the globalist funded fake news broadcaster. Runners who wear masks deserve to asfixiate Aw ffs 😡😡 just naw what the fuck Yeah this isn’t happening on my runs, I want proper oxygen flow.

No chance No they shouldn’t.........! They have been running for the last year. Infections have dropped massively. They are obviously not spreading the virus. This is stupid Awful paper 💩 And they want gyms open 😂😂😂 Imagine the bird who's spent 2 hours to do her face and then to put a mask on to spoil her work of art.

Scaremongering click bait Still airborne COVID-19 fart as well from bum😆 Don’t see footballers playing in masks OH SURE ! YOU CAN RUN IF YOU HAVE COVID .... ITS A RESPIRATORY VIRUS RIGHT ? Have you ever run anywhere ? Naw, telt ye earlier, stay indoors if folks without masks offends ye. 🖕to that idea and all the other rubbish they keep coming out with

Prefer wearing a mask when running, some of the people you see who clearly are going to die from obesity related issues are potential carriers. Pointless staying in shape and no being protected against those who cba looking after themselves. Gym too? What about farting?🤔 Oh ho thought everybody had to stay home be OK eventually when all industry gone and UK massive leisure centre job done Boris !!!!!

Must be many documented cases of joggers causing infections otherwise this wouldn't make sense. This is getting silly now 😂😂😂😂😂never Puffing and panting into a mask doesn't seem like a good idea to me. People would be hyperventilating and collapsing all over the place. Seriously 🤬🖕🏻off with these idiotic articles!! I’ll run without a mask if I want! I want proper oxygen flow when I run!

You also have to run with your arms behind your back just incase your running arms waft the covid about🙄 🐑🐑🐑🐑 😂😂😂 idiotic fact Thought all dogging sites were closed subsidyjunkieuk Jog on Loooool the world is going fucking mental 😅 help If you are racing at a decent speed wearing a mask, eg Sprinter doing reps at sub 11.00 on a measure road, or somebody running a four minute mile, it just isn't really possible, if you are leisurely jogging then yes.

Gonna stop that now Why. They should make all and everyone in supermarkets employees were a mask. Especially when there dealing on shop floor. Runners are outside Local brothel says not needed. They should wear this. Better. Can't wait to see all the competitors in the Olympics wearing masks in training and competition then.

If you say the masks work then why not the others makes sure they wear one so as not to catch anything passed by the runner. I hold my breath when I get a puffing billy cycle or jog by but I wholeheartedly agree mask up you buffoons Maybe in a gym but not outside The W.H.O say otherwise, so..... 🖕🏻 does that mean they are running for covid and not for democracy

Cool. So are other 'huffers and puffers' going to have to do this too? Cyclists? Skaters? Children in play parks? Footballers? How about if you exceed a certain weight because even walking makes some people huff and puff. Fuck off with this shit. I run in low traffic areas. Give it a rest ffs 😅😂🤣😂😅😂🤣
