Default Orange County contemplating masks to enter grocery stores.

I wonder if this will spread throughout the state?

Miami-Dade went with it effective yesterday.

I'm assuming that, if you can't find a mask, a properly tied bandanna or some other nose and mouth covering will be sufficient...maybe someone can weigh in and clarify.

Most cities are implementing it. Entering a gun store is not an issue. They ask you to remove it for the camera then you can put it back on. All of the employees at the gun store are wearing masks & gloves.

Heck I am all for whatever gets us back out and working. My wife and grandkids have made a couple hundred masks and distributed to friends family and hospital workers. shes waiting on a roll of elastic right now to finish more. I personally don't want to wear them but its the only way she will let me go anywhere.

Follow CDC guidelines.

The mask is NOT to protect you. The mask is for you to not infect others, mostly for those that have no symptoms.

I went to the store this morning in palm beach county and I would say 80-90% of people had some type of face covering

Ive been wearing a buff pulled up in public to be polite. It feels crazy and very odd at first but when you realize 90% of people are also wearing masks you start to feel normal pretty quick. I also believe its not necessarily to protect yourself but to protect others from people who possible might have it who could cough or sneeze it acts like a shield.

You have it part right.

Breathing, normal breathing, expels droplets. If you are asymptomatic, and are breathing, you are possibly infecting others. Having any type of covering over your nose and mouth lessens the chance that you'll unknowingly infect someone else.

About 60% wearing masks at Publix today. Some counties have chosen to implement it but I seriously doubt anyone is following Orange Co. I've only seen a couple of cashiers wearing masks and very few employees.

They are talking about a cover for the face. You shouldn't have a hard time finding something for that. This should have been done on day one, but we have to many weak minded people in this country that wouldn't be able to follow the bouncing ball. The mask shortage would have hit the medical community harder than it did.
