King County asks residents to wear masks in public, indoor settings

Seattle and King County announced Monday that they are urging residents to wear face coverings in all indoor public settings, and outdoors where social distancing is difficult. This includes grocery stores, pharmacies, and hardware stores, as well as picking up food at a restaurants or at a farmers market. The health directive goes into effect on May 18, 2020.

“By face coverings, we do not mean the N-95, surgical masks,” King County Executive Dow Constantine clarified. “We’re talking about fabric masks, scarves, a bandanna, and the disposable non-medical masks” that cover your nose and mouth.

Exceptions to the directive include children, people with disabilities, deaf individuals, and others who may not be able to wear a mask for health or other reasons.

There is no penalty for not wearing a face covering, and law enforcement will not be involved in this directive.

Avoid the comments section of the article. A lot of right wing crybabies.

1. We deafies don't need to be excused from wearing masks. Our problem is that it's hard to

read the lips of other people who are wearing masks. Our own lips are not the ones we need to read!

I just tell people I'm deaf and can't chat because their lips are covered. There's no reason why I should need to chat with a cashier anyway, but if we do need to verbally interact, they can write me a brief note.
