Delivery men!

AIBU to expect delivery men who enter my home to wear masks?
I had a new sofa delivered today as I was in dire need of furniture. I only had two chairs in my sitting room due to moving house and one of those had collapsed so no choice but to take the risk.
When they turned up they weren’t wearing masks and I asked them to put them on, but they didn’t have any. I only have one reusable mask which I was wearing so I couldn’t give them any either. Their excuse was that carrying heavy furniture and trying to breathe through a mask was too difficult.
I kept out of their way but as I have only been out the house once since March I am very worried that I’ve exposed myself to corona.
At least I have something soft to sit on whilst I’m ill. ?

A pathetic excuse for not wearing one Bluebellwould.
I wouldn`t over worry tbh especially as you were wearing one,but i would complain to the company.
Happy loungeing.

Why do you expect to be ill ? Chances are slim
But as trustgone says only way is to complain to the company if you are not happy with their service

The company policy should, at least, to be that the delivery men ask the customer if they would like them to wear masks. It's only courtesy.

I also doubt that you are in any danger from such a brief and distanced visit.
