Whitmer Extends Face Mask Requirement in Michigan
I don't think it will come as a big surprise but Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is extending the face mask requirement through July 15.
This means shoppers will continue to be required to wear a face mask or covering at grocery stores and pharmacies in Michigan.
Whitmer made the announcement Wednesday evening:
This executive order will help us continue to protect employees and customers at grocery stores and pharmacies. I encourage all Michiganders to practice social distancing and wear a face mask when they are out in public so we can protect the heroes on the front lines of this crisis and avoid a second wave of COVID-19.
According to ABC12, It applies to every shopper who can medically tolerate a face mask or covering to wear one over their nose and mouth while inside. If a mask is not available, customers can use a bandanna, handkerchief or other cloth.
Personally, this doesn't bother me one bit. I know some people get so bent out of shape for simply having to wear a mask. Does it prevent the spread of COVID-19? Hell, I don't know and honestly, it doesn't matter what I think because it's not all about me. If by wearing a mask, I make others feel more comfortable, then I'll wear it.
If you don't want to wear a mask, then don't. I see people all the time in grocery stores without masks. I honestly don't care. Just don't throw a fit when you walk into a store and they require you to wear a mask. The other day I watched this guy explode on this young girl who was just doing her job. She told him a mask was required if he wanted to come in and shop. The dude lost it and started going off about our rights being taken away blah blah blah. Do what you want, just don't be that dude.
