The mask-wearing conventions are completely ridiculous at this point


There's virtually no evidence that there's risk of transmission from passing someone in an aisle at a grocery store, yet in many places people wouldn't be caught dead not wearing one in that scenario. I suppose it might make sense if you assume masks are effective if you're the type of person who spends most of the trip to the store talking with people you happen to see there.
There's a decent amount of evidence that indoor dining is a source of transmission, yet people seem to feel as if wearing a mask while walking to and from the table offers sufficient protection and that the mask is no longer necessary when sitting at a table for an hour or more.
As for gyms, I get the sense that most people who are fearful of the virus have reverted to just not going.
