Remember To Still Keep A Mask With You
I didn't enjoy wearing a mask, but I did it because I felt there was a chance it was making a difference in the lives of others. Did it make a difference? I don't know, I'm not a doctor. I personally didn't feel like it was a control thing like many did, but if there was a chance it helped even a little, I feel like it was worth it.
At the end of the day, I wasn't working in health care and didn't have to wear one like those workers did, and like many still do. So in reality, my days of mask wearing could have been a lot worse. I'm fully vaccinated now, and I haven't been bringing a mask with me anywhere. I basically just stopped, especially since once Minnesota announced lessened restrictions, most places put up the "mask optional" signs.
I've only been to one business, or rather tried to go to one that didn't want non-masked individuals inside. I didn't have one, I didn't need what they were selling, so I moved on. I actually meant to throw one back in my truck bust just haven't yet, and I should. It's not going to ruin my day to throw one of for a few minutes in a store if I need it. I know I will need to tonight, because I was told that this morning.
Tonight, the last of my younger siblings have their Duluth East High School graduation at Amsoil Arena. I can only relay what I was told second or maybe third hand, and that is there will be assigned seating, and mask wearing that is mandatory. So when I get home from work, first on my list is to find one of my comfy masks or I'll go to the old stand-by surgical mask box. Either way, I'll be putting one or two in my truck for situations like tonight. You can see the current Minnesota Department of Health recommendations for settings to wear a mask at HERE.
