I'm not convinced that wearing masks makes no difference. I wear a mask when I go to the supermarket. Most people don't. My understanding is that the mask isn't so much for self protection as to prevent an infected person spreading the infection to others. There has been government over-reach here - an over-reaction after their initial carelessness. We can't travel more than a couple of miles from our homes but there are no restrictions on travellers from abroad. Anyone can come in through our sea or air ports and move around the country at will even on public transport. It has been months since some of my older relatives have seen their children or grandchildren. Video calls from family is not the same as a visit no matter how the media try to tell us otherwise. Volunteers delivering groceries does not prevent or cure loneliness. I don't like our government but I respect their right to govern so I obey the laws. I associate masonry with stirring up dissent from lawful authority both in the Church and in society.
