Where do you stand on the mask issue? Do you think wearing one should be enforced for the public like some states/counties are now doing?
I think it makes sense to where face masks everywhere where you can't reasonable social distance. That would be inside gas stations, grocery stores, retail stores, restaurants and fast food places, and certain parts of workplaces if your office or business is trying to go back to normal. I think that covers a majority of essential places most people are going right now.
I will admit to feeling confused and changing my mind a few times on wearing a mask in certain situations, mostly because of the initial double speak from health officials. And then, being in Texas, the relative low numbers in cases compared to other hot spots, (at least until recently). And the fact I don't get out and about that much anyways. So I went back and forth in my head a few times if I needed to not go into XYZ gas station because I forgot my mask at home. That sort of thing.
I do think enforcement is super tricky nationwide. I don't support fining people for not wearing masks, and I also think its a near impossible task to police people not wearing face masks in all 'necessary' situations, especially when health officials and people in general can't decide 100% on when they should and should not be used.
One example and question I have - why do children under 10 not have to wear them in certain states? Is there a medical logic to this or is this just accepting that young children won't comply? That's just one example among many of discrepancies states and cities seemingly arbitrarily set.
I think it makes all the sense in the world for businesses to require workers and customers to all wear masks inside their establishment until social distancing is possible, and to try and enforce this rule at the door. I do support that.
Lastly, it does appear the spread of COVID-19 is far less an issue outside during the day in general. So if and when I am exercising outside or just going for a walk, as long as I stay at least 6 feet away from others, I do not feel the need to ever wear a mask when outside, or in my car by myself, or of course at home. Some are taking mask wearing to a degree beyond logic.
