I've got a friend who stayed home all day the other day and got 10 notifications that he'd been exposed, so he sounds to have decent range on his Bluetooth. 

That's a big open question I believe, how reliable the Bluetooth logging is that people have genuinely been in contact. 

In addition to the aforementioned staff in banks and supermarkets behind glass who I'm sure won't all switch off there's a question on it picking up people in other cars when in traffic or office or meeting rooms where basic room dividers are in place. 

There's also people who leave their phone somewhere, a desk or by the coffee machine in an office, then fuck off for a bit. It's logging someone being near the phone and not the person so gets everyone getting close to the phone and not "social distance" from the device rather than the person.

Just been in the smaller of the two Tesco in Lincoln. Things were pretty much in stock apart from loo roll and pet food. Did see one guy at the till getting told by the checkout girl that he couldn't

People have lost any sense of good social etiquette. I nipped into my local Aldi the other day before lunch for a second bottle of whiskey and some scrote started shouting to get away from him.

Isn’t there also an issue for people living in flats? It doesn’t distinguish between floors so thinks everyone is in the same room

Depending on the building construction again it's an open point still as I understand it. The app won't care if someone is in range vertically rather than horizontally. 

It certainly would have been a problem in my old house with the people next door where we both had a sofa on the same adjoining wall so were technically 6" of concrete apart for most of a weekday evening but never met face to face more than twice a year.

I was supposed to be getting married today but we’ve postponed it until March (which is looking doubtful now, too). Although yesterday, a few miles down the road from me, a couple went ahead with their wedding of 120 guests which swiftly got shut down by the police and the venue got fined £10,000. 
 

Telford for you.

Question someone may be able to answer as the Internet is fucking useless. 

I'm struggling with my aspergers and wearing a mask (I have since March, the idea of something on my skin and around my mouth and nose just causes me to go into a complete sensory overload) and I've applied for one of those sunflower passes that excuse you from wearing a mask on public transport. I don't know if I'll use it (most my journeys are short enough and as long as I have music on I can kinda zone out) but does anyone know if it works/applies for the new rules about walking around pubs/restaurants to use the bathroom etc. I've already got a serious anxiety issue with public restrooms due to people being around them, people too close in a cramped space, the sound of the stupid air dryers etc, I had a case last night where I struggled with even using the room with a mask because everything was just in full overload. 

Does it cover it or am I more likely to just have to hold my piss until I get home? 😂

For reference I'm somewhat okay with wearing a mask indoors to places as long as they can sit me down quickly so I can get the thing straight back off and then attempt to never leave my seat. It has meant I can't do long shopping stretches or going into most stores though which is proving difficult. I'm almost glad with teaching and supply work I can take it off once I'm in a classroom now.

@Shy Dad I don't know the actual answer, but just from personal experience there was a woman down my local last night with an exemption card who didn't wear a mask and the gaffer seemed happy enough with that.

Thanks Lorne, I only go to two or three pubs who know me and are like my regular places to go so it may be that case too, only asked as I kinda ended up nearly arguing with the manager of one of them last night as I didn't have a card with me at the time, forgot to put the mask on when going for a piss and words were said about me breaking the rules. All got sorted and calmed down but put a bit of a dampener on my evening when having to explain my Aspergers again and again as well as my issues remembering things.

In that situation surely you don't need to explain anything. "Sorry guv, slipped my mind". Job done. 

Was more I think the manager running into the toilet in a blind panic shouting I needed to be wearing a mask probably startled me like a dog with fireworks. At that point it can go a multitude of ways, none usually helpful.
