Explain It To Me
I've written about it numerous times: https://bfthsboringblog.blogspot.com/2021/02/the-virus-diary-frustrated-friday.html, https://bfthsboringblog.blogspot.com/2021/02/to-man-in-teal-jacket.html, https://bfthsboringblog.blogspot.com/2021/03/this-man-is-angry-at-me.html and https://bfthsboringblog.blogspot.com/2021/03/the-virus-diary-responsibility.html are just a few examples. I bet you are tired of reading about it. I'm a little tired of writing about it. HOWEVER, during this pandemic (and we are STILL in the middle of it), we ALL need to act in a responsible manner. That means WEAR A MASK even if you have gotten the vaccine. (Don't take my word for it: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html#:~:text=After%20you've%20been%20fully,places%20until%20we%20know%20more.)
Now I realize that there are some states that no longer require you to wear a mask. (Pretty darned stupid in my opinion.) I do not live in such a state. I live in a state where you need to wear as mask. (Again, don't just take my word for it: https://covid19.nj.gov/faqs/nj-information/slowing-the-spread/should-i-wear-a-mask-to-stop-the-spread-of-covid-19)
What I want to specifically call out (and you KNEW this was coming) is that masks are REQUIRED "in indoor spaces open to the public, including retail, recreational, and entertainment businesses, government buildings open to the public, and on public transportation." That comes from my state's website and furthermore, every establishment I've been in has signage of some sort saying that masks are required for entry.

- Get vaccinated (when you are eligible)
- Wash your hands (you should have been doing this any way...you know that)
- Stay socially distant (no matter how much you want to hug someone and we ALL want a hug)
- WEAR A MASK OVER YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH!
