Re: Burnaby store’s mask requirement feels like a sales ‘gimmick’, NOW Letters
Contrary to what other customers might think, I applaud T&T's new requirement that everyone who enters the store has to wear a face mask.
All other supermarkets should have the same policy. It's definitely not a gimmick as the virus is highly contagious and not a joke.
T&T has a right to protect its employees and as a customer I feel much safer knowing that everyone is wearing one. Just look at Hong Kong and Taiwan, where keeping the two-metre social distance is next-to-impossible and yet there are no mass outbreaks, due no less to the fact that residents there wear masks.
Charging those who come in without one for a measly one dollar is reasonable and why should the store subsidizes those who don't wear one? I doubt if T&T would be losing any business over a policy designed to protect all concerned.
