MASK FATIGUE!!!! it would appear that it is a thing. The last couple of nights at the stadium there has been an underwhelming compliance with mask wearing within the stadium. We must still wear them, failure to do so could see individual fines issued and the WBA issued with a larger fine for not ensuring our patrons are wearing them.

We can all debate their appropriateness or otherwise but to ensure we continue to be able to play games we must ensure we stick to the current Covid directions.

We need to see an improvement please. Anyone not actively involved in a game must be wearing a mask, when your game is finished then the mask must be put back on. Your assistance in this area is appreciated

Last I heard the instruction was "if you can wear a mask, wear one" personally, I hyperventilate, get a headache, feel dizzy, break out in a rash and to top it all off, fog up my glasses so I can't see either. Many of us have valid reasons for not wearing them. Please don't exclude those of us who can't wear a mask from community activities.
