A subjective note about masks

In the local (central KY) Walmart this morning, it seemed to me that virtually no men were wearing masks (except the employees), while most of the women were. No doubt this would prove something profound if the sample pool were more diverse.

1. I was at a Walmart a few days ago in Wisconsin

About 80% of shoppers were wearing masks. Of the 20% of shoppers who weren't wearing masks almost all of them were men. I think I only saw two women who weren't.

2. Thanks for posting

These local first-person accounts by DUers are helpful for knowing what's going on out there in different regions of the country.

4. Necessary food shopping in Louisiana yesterday

Higher end grocery (more reliable for milk, eggs and meat): lots of masks
Regular grocery (for dry goods at better prices): *many* fewer masks, mostly worn by women and non-whites

6. my wife went shopping...

.... at a smaller Walmart and a smaller Kroger last Thursday. The first thing she told me when she got home was that she didn't see anyone at either store who was not wearing a mask, customers and cashiers included. Seems we're doing pretty good in our little neck of the woods.

5. I just came out of Aldi in eastern TN.

Mostly women shopping and only a few wore masks... one on her chin. One man, plus my husband and the cashiers, wore a mask. One of the women without one had one of those tacky flag t-shirts on. I am beyond disgusted by the stupidity of the people around here.

7. Mostly non-mask wearers here

in red eastern Washington state. Even at the hippie local natural foods stores. Disappointing. Tourists, of course, too.

Will only shop where masks are required - Costco, local produce market, and maybe one where employees wear them more consistently.

I appreciate that they are thinking of customers' safety.
