Irish people should continue to wear face coverings even after the worst of Covid is over, says Anthony Staines (above), a professor of public health at Dublin City University
“I would continue to wear a mask well after Christmas. To make it unnecessary we need to bring viral transmission and case numbers down a lot.
“A shift to outdoor culture and more mask wearing and working from home are not bad things. Mask wearing could be a permanent change in our behaviour like the Asian culture.”
