Despite the governor's mandate that we wear face coverings in public, many shoppers at grocery stores still were not. I asked the clerk, "Is it not mandatory that all shoppers wear masks?" and "Wasn't there a sign on the door?" She replied that people were getting mad. So what, if all the stores adhere to the new mandate, then those shoppers would have to comply or go on a diet.
