The Spanish Health Ministry has said it will be compulsory to wear a mask when you go out from Thursday this week but British expats are having none of it and say they would rather stay in!
FACE masks are to be worn at all times from Thursday is the message we get from the official bulletin, the problem is that the vast majority of local expats, already suffering from so-called ‘cage syndrome’ who can’t or don’t want to wear masks and would rather stay inside until the crisis is over.
A quick search through social media bought up some interesting quotes…
Ex Pub Landlord, Margaret Hanson, from Benidorm: “What? Nah, forget it, they (the Spanish government) can stick their masks up their a***s, I’m not doing it, I’ve been stuck here at home for over two months now, all I want to do is walk up the paseo with a fag and take the air in. How can they expect us to have a drink and a chat with friends while keep moving a daft mask out of the way? Tt’s crazy, stuff em, let them fine me!”
Liam Andrews from Marbella said: “Here we go again, do this and do that, we may as well be in China. Just let it go now, I work in Puerto Banus and the bar is still closed, no-one is going to come in when they have to wear masks. Of course, I understand the reason but why move us into Phase 1 and introduce this compulsory law? I read on the internet the other day that a jogger collapsed and nearly died through wearing a mask while running and a driver in America fainted and crashed down a hill through wearing a mask.”
Sandra Evans from Fuengirola, is another expat that can’t wear a mask because she claims it scares her cat!
Sandra: “I was telling my friends on Facebook, I had a kit delivered last week from Mijas Town Hall, great I thought, I’ll put it on later when I go for my walk. I didn’t think it would scare the life out of the cat! It took two days to get him back!”
