We don't need no stinkin' masks!

That seems to be the attitude.

Microsoft News Poll: Do you think the CDC should recommend that the general public wear face coverings in public?

Yes — 48%
Possibly — 29%

So why aren’t people wearing them?

Example: I had a physical therapy appointment yesterday at a facility run by the local hospital. All staff members wearing masks. Total of 3 patients; I was the only one masked.

Since neither of us had been into town for about 5 days, I stopped at Walmart to pick up a few essentials. I was wearing my N95 mask and had a bottle of hand sanitizer in my pocket. Employees at the door were sanitizing cart handles, but in the entire store, I only saw one employee with a mask, and only 2 other masked customers, one improvising with a bandana. And maintaining distance was difficult.

Maybe the fact that our SW corner of New Mexico has zero confirmed cases gives people a false sense of security. But why take chances? And what about the hoarders who bought up all the masks? Are they actually wearing them?
