The only place where I live where masks are mandatory are on public transport, it's discretionary elsewhere,

...Buuut, I've waited 37 years for an excuse to walk around in public wearing a Ninja mask, and I'm not passing it up,

I've ordered two, they should be here by Tuesday,

Mask wearing has become a "Thing"...sadly.

More than that ..... Its become a 'fashion statement' varied fabrics and some

even diamantie encrusted!

Do all countries mask? Does yours?
Does your country mandate keeping distant from others.....I abhor that PC term, but feel free.

We in the UK are masking and distancing however the rules are all over the

place, and dont make any sense. Litter in car parks are 25% disposal masks

as they are 'unsocially ' dumped.

The US does not have a federal mandate for issues such as these are regulated by the states.
My state is one where you must wear a mask indoors, unless you are at home or are seated at a dine-in place.

UK too.....However being masked in a dine in is ridiculous because it has to

be removed when you eat, at that stage all your collected in the mask

infection is released into the air surrounding you to others? and all those

hands touching the condiments?

I AM NOT CONVINCED ........Theres more to this than meets the eye.....and

I'm not a conspiracy theorist!!!

Idaho has been late to the game on masks. Now that we've become a hot spot, masks are being mandated in the worst areas- like Boise. It's still just 'recommended' throughout most of the state. Schools will be opening on time.

I ordered a plague mask for myself. I don't go to town often, but if I do I'll be wearing my mask to comply with store policies.

Damn, I am glad I live in Georgia , U.S.
Here it is against state regulations for any local government to mandate masks.
Private owned businesses still can, but I know of only Walmart and a couple of others.

And BJs, and Costco, and Sprouts, and Whole Foods, and... almost everywhere I go it seems. I'm in north Atlanta (Cumming/Alpharetta/Rosewell areas).

Some places don't enforce it though, some make half-hearted attempts but don't push it if I resist... but some have mask natzis.

I've been wearing them when it comes to a choice between that or telling them to piss off, but I'm about sick of it though, and very close to just telling the natzis to arrest me.

See, that is what's wrong, right there.
I get folks want to make the masks as pleasant as possible.

But not fashionable...please not that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, just not the same.
I crave the real thing.

And I miss a lot of what people say.
Cannot hear some of the words.
Inflection is muffled.
Communication is suffering.

I am so much missing expressions that I'm toying with painting a smile on

mine where my mouth is
........ but I hope I wont have to and we can

be rid of them fairly soon.
