Mask Wearing in Illinois..Everyone does it, at least at the foodstore I went to today.

...I left the Jewel in the suburb of Skokie about an hour and a half ago.. Everyone wore a mask. There
is a sign upon entering that says, "Masks are required to enter" All employees had masks, children
had masks and comers and goers had them. (Yes, I had one too, double mask & gloves)..This is not a
game, and people who don't wear them are not only stupid but don't really care about their own health.
...Right now in the last year and 2 months..(is that correct?) in the time that Covid 19 has been around
over 500,000 have died...that is 14 times the number killed in auto accident.. To prevent the disease
from spreading, you wear a mask...all the time you are somewhere with strangers...
....Is wearing a mask that much more difficult than wearing a seatbelt? How hard is it to put on a seatbelt?
You didn't know this, but from research....55,000 were killed before seat belts became "The Law".
.Now even though there are twice the number of cars...35,000 are killed...40 percent less..
....How difficult is wearing a mask if wearing one saves your life?..Think about it...& pass it on to
those who do not wear masks.. I do guess that everyone puts on a seatbelt when you get into the car...
Is that correct?

Illinois.

Here, most stores post a notice that "Masks are required". Some even have an employee at the door to tell customers that "Masks are required". But, many who enter wearing a mask immediately remove it once they are past the check point. Others just ignore the he ssd's ign and the checker and enter maskless.

The result is that maybe one in three people in the store are wearing masks---AND THAT INCLUDES EMPLOYEES.

I am not sure I will be able to keep my big mouth shut much longer. I have never abided fools gladly and it seems only a matter of time until one gets on my last nerve.

5. Yes, I am "downstate", and I'd say less than half wear masks around here, including employees.
