Not surprised if it was the Charlottesville store. People here are masking

up pretty much in every store, not just Whole Foods. I saw it today in Kroger Rio Hill---vast majority were wearing masks. Remember, in Charlottesville, UVA & the Medical Center are, by far, the dominant entities in town. More so than the Navy in 757, & more so than the state or Federal governments in Richmond or NOVA, though they are substantial influences. Still, they're not all about health & they're not universities. I'm all about freedom & individual choices but, living in Charlottesville, I conform to the prevailing attitude that as long as covid & this new variant is a threat, wearing a mask indoors is the polite, proper & responsible thing to do. I have to live in this town & that's the way it is & I'm OK with that. It doesn't hurt anyone to wear a mask but it might hurt someone if I don't, even though I'm fully vaccinated. I wouldn't go around anywhere inside without a mask any more than I'd go around anywhere wearing a VT T-shirt. Both would be equally bad & earn me the disdain & dirty looks that I would get.
