Gov Newsom orders mandatory face masks.

https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/california/newsom-orders-people-to-wear-masks-in-most-indoor-spaces/2311887/

https://www.mercurynews.com/borenstein-newsom-coronavirus-strategy-accepts-60-plus-daily-deaths

"Hospitalizations have never come down substantially. Rather than a bell-shaped curve, we’re witnessing a plateau, with a likely rise in the fall when cold weather brings more of us indoors, if not sooner because of the economic reopening."

"Statewide hospital coronavirus patient counts remain at about 4,500 a day and daily deaths hover between 60 and 70. Since the start, more than 5,200 people have died in California from COVID-19."
*************
"Until now, the Democratic governor had let local governments decide whether to mandate masks, an issue that's become politically fraught as some Americans resist orders to wear them. He said he's issuing the order now because too many people are going out in public without face coverings as businesses, restaurants and other sectors of the economy reopen."

2. I agree.

Masks should be mandated for everyone outside of their homes or yards, unless they can be sure to be way more than 6 feet from others.

7. Yup.

I see too many folks out here in Riverside County going maskless.

3. About time. What is going to happen if it's not enforced?

4. I personally give a dirty look and I DO say something.

I am sick of this shit! I stay inside and wear a mask and gloves when I go out, once every two weeks. I guess the non-mask wearers think I am doing it because it is SOOOOOOO much fun and/or I want to wear them only for MY health alone, not theirs. Actually, if they catch it and don`t wear masks I say...

I wish they were fined a lot of money and publicly shamed.

5. I work with an individual who refuses to wear a mask at work even though everyone is required

to wear one. It's one thing to decide for yourself, but it's a whole other ballgame when your actions could be deadly to another person. I'm tired of them getting away with it. Basically everything is open here because the police and mayor said they would not enforce any of the regulations.

6. I wish our governor would do the same, but that's highly unlikely.

8. My county robo call system kicked in and delivered the message yesterday

And it's a good thing, too, because the masks were disappearing everywhere, despite my county announcing 125 new cases the previous day.

Things got so complacent, the catholic church resumed Saturday mass last weekend, then, BAM, five days later, the priest was stricken, and is in a bad way in the hospital.

A lot of people question how you enforce Gov Newsom's order, but I'm thinking it will be determined by the individual stores, and I'm guessing our independent Mexican grocery store, whose customer base is front loaded with middle age Catholic women will will be strictly enforcing it.

9. I know that restaurants and bars can lose their

liquor license if they do not enforce the rules. They already made an example of one in San Diego. Hit them in the pocketbook if you can (as a business) or shame the non-wearers by posting photos I guess. How else can we make them do it?
