Better safe than sorry! Wearing a protective face mask in Croatia has been the norm, in fact the law, for the past week or so, but this is taking protection to a new level. Face masks must be worn in shops and on public transport, but wearing them in the Adriatic whilst swimming isn’t on the list of must wear destinations.
Actually swimming in a face mask must be tricky to say the least. Get that mask wet and you have a soggy mask dripping on your nose, and breathing whilst swimming must also be a challenge. But this over-protective swimmer in Cavtat yesterday wasn’t taking any chances. We can only presume that she didn’t decide to go scuba diving later.
Hats off to the swimmer for setting a new high point in the fight against Covid-19.
