It is becoming more likely that the UK population will be required to mask up in more public places such as shops and supermarkets. It does beg the question as to why it has taken so long for the government to adopt this position considering the rest of the world is already doing so.
As for investigators in the private sector, this can be a double edged sword. On one hand, it can become even tricker when trying to identify a subject, so we can only hope they remove their face coverings or not wear them at all to give us a better chance at making sure we are tailing the correct person. But on the other hand, we will be wearing them as well which masks our identity for the duration of operations.
