59. The CVS drugstore that I go to has a sign

requiring masks, but employees have been told not to mention it to customers without masks because they fear violent reactions.

The grocery store that enforces masks is privately owned, not a chain. The owner is well known and respected around town. This is a small city, although there are chain stores here, too.

I don't think police here would get involved in mask issues unless someone made threats or got violent. But, NY does have firm regulations in place and Cuomo has authorized businesses to refuse service to non-compliant customers regarding masks and distancing. Some bars and restaurants have been closed down and their licenses revoked for non-compliance with coronavirus health regulations. The local (county) health boards can also close a business that does not follow the rules on coronavirus. So, when I report the 7/11 near me, the complaint will be investigated. If the public health dept finds them in violation, they will get a warning. If it persists after that, they can be closed down.

I avoid stores that are lax about masks and distancing. When I see someone with their nose hanging out of a mask, or wearing the mask around their neck, I make an obvious point of moving away from them.
