This is somewhat abstract as it relates to a food and drink site but then again maybe not. One day I’d like to visit restaurants without barriers again as well as feel safe to get on a plane to foreign food destinations. As such, it behooves me to wear a mask so as to help put an end to Covid.
You overhear people in conversation saying how it’s uncomfortable; imagine how health care workers feel or staff in shops wearing masks all day compared to the 15 minutes you might be required to. Twice in the last couple of weeks I’ve been to places where they have mandatory face mask rules in place and I’ve seen people defying it.
Perhaps you don’t believe it’s necessary? Have you checked the stats on fatalities around the world? Do you know people who are immunocompromised? Think of how they feel when you hesitate. That’s of course if they take the chance of being out in public around the doubters.
As I wrote in “The 10 Commandments for Being a Better Customer”, if you’re going into a business where they have a mandatory rule for wearing a face mask or even just request you do so, IT’S THEIR BUSINESS NOT YOURS. You don’t like it, don’t wanna wear the mask, then open your own store. I sure won’t be shopping there.
