Now that the country is being immunised against the covid pandemic, do skaters need to wear facemasks.
Welcome to your blog post.
Skating in any format is a form of exercise that increases our heartrate and breathing pattern which can induce coughing and heavy perspiration that may spread COVID from an infected Skater, So masks should be worn at all times when skating in a group. This is also likely to be Mandatory at all Leisure centres and places of exercise for many more months to come.
I don't think it should be necessary for skaters to skate with a mask on whilst outdoors, unless in a skate group or a heavy pedestrian area, Common sense and personal safety should tell to keep your distance and wear a mask if you feel threatened. Let us know your thoughts on this delicate subject.
