Are they gonna go the step further and require that people wear those masks over both their nose and mouth?
Or are we just gonna go through the motions in an attempt a enforced social compliance?
I see many folks (oddly, especially folks with an african ancestry) wearing a mask….over their mouth but not their nose. Lots more wearing them on their chin, but not covering their nose OR mouth. Sadly, these folks get away with it because every one else is afraid of being called “racist” if they point the failure to wear the mask properly.
(Note: I wear a mask only under protest, but that is just me me being stubborn…I beleive they are somewhat effective at preventing people from spreading sneeze and cough borne droplets of spittle, but they really don’t do much else…)
Make no mistake, I think that if a business chooses to require a mask on their property, the choice is theirs, and that is their business….It iws not the purview of the State, however. In my state, the only person that can issue “wear a mask” orders (in public streets) that are legally enforceable is the Governor, as LaPorte County has found out…..they can make all the ordinances they wish, but they have no real force of law. (But the business is in a bind if they don’t cooperate).
But if yer gonna hassle businesses and people about masks, then make people wear ’em properly…or don’t do it at all.
