Just came from Walmart

For the most part everyone had on a mask, the exceptions always had the same look (white male with a goatee or beard, with a stupid looking hat on wearing sunglasses or the sunglasses was on the hat), all had an arrogant look to them.

1. Well so did I. About half the people had masks.

People wandering around not paying any attention to social distancing or anyone else. I will agree on the general looks of those wh won't wear masks.

Gawd I hate going into Walmart, but they ran everybody else out of business....

2. Have not been to walmart for about a week ( so nice )

but every time I am there most are not wearing masks and a lot give you dirty looks for wearing a mask. If you know western Washington state and tell you I live in Lewis County you know exactly what mentality I am talking about.

3. Local Walmart about 20% wearing masks, maybe 50% of workers. Big drop in last two weeks.

Even though cases are rising fast in my county, a lot of folks have decided "it's over".

Big outdoor concert last night just down the road.

7. Downstate Illinois. Folk were taking this seriously until a couple of weeks ago.

Oddly, our county's confirmed case rate (and death rate) went up five fold in the last two weeks.

I think Spring weather is a big factor.

9. It is really hard for people to stay locked down.

But people need to realize that wearing masks while in public or on the job starves the virus and gets us to the day when we are free of it much faster. It took several years for scientists to develop an H1N1 vaccine, but it largely vanished in a year due to the strong plan that President Obama executed. Leadership matters in situations like this.

10. All Walmarts in US have policy

All associates have to have on masks while in store. No exceptions. Report to 1-800-Wal-Mart if they aren't. I am a screener at Walmart (usually an Optician) during this pandemic.

4. What state are you in?

I went to Publix in North-Central Florida, roughly 55-60% of customers were wearing masks. All employees were wearing masks and the cashiers were behind plexiglass.

8. Look like the only way that some people will get the message is to get sick.

I have wondered about people that get infected and don't show symptoms. Could SARS-COV-2 set a marker in them? Maybe their first dose was not large, but SAR-COV-2 "prepared" their system for later. The reason why I have that thought is that in 1918-1921, the virus was not remotely as damaging on the first wave, but once in humans it mutated to become more deadly. Could it have been that instead of mutating, it simply revisited the people that were asymptomatic the first time around and killed a lot of them?
