On Monday, November 16, I went grocery shopping at the Rosauers on Third Ave. I was upset to see a young man shopping in the vegetable department not wearing a mask. Buying groceries for the week, I walked down most aisles in the store. I saw two more mask cheaters, (masks pulled down under their nose).
At checkout I asked why this was allowed? I was told that these people needed to buy essential items. So then I asked, “How do you respond if someone is smoking in the aisles of the store, or not wearing shoes or a shirt in the store?” Well, they’re escorted out of store! So how is not wearing a mask in the grocery store (in accordance to our new virus restrictions) any different? My checkout staff said, “These are confusing times.”
Hmmm. I’m not confused. Are you?
