Surely if wearing a mask is so important to stop the spread etc then open football grounds up and make people wear masks. I’m sure people would rather do that than not see their team live. And if you don’t feel comfortable doing that then don’t go.
The supermarkets are not meant to be a “free for all”. Personally I can live without football but not without food.
It isn’t necessarily what you feel comfortable with. Even if you feel comfortable going to football grounds there is a chance that you could catch the virus and then,if you were a symptomatic, unknowingly pass it on to numerous other people that you contact while doing other things that you are comfortable with.
It is hard for almost everybody but let’s get the incident rate right down and then we can resume an almost normal life.
You should see some of the sights in our supermarkets. They want you to go in alone if possible yet we’ve got families of four strolling round like they’re on a day out, kids touching everything, people touching stuff then putting it back and they wonder why supermarkets are one of the highest places to catch it.
I have seen the supermarkets like this AND have walked out or not gone in if the car parks are too full or ( in lockdown 1)the queue outside was too big. I’ve worked all the way through, not from home because I can’t, and found it very frustrating not being able to get a few essentials on the way home. I’ve also found it difficult getting a suitable online shop due to having flexible work times. I tend to go early on either Saturday or Sunday.
