As of Tuesday, Apr. 27, the CDC says fully vaccinated people and unvaccinated people (in certain situations) alike, no longer have to wear a mask outside; however, I still see many people walking outside while wearing a mask.

The CDC says that whether they are fully vaccinated or not, people do not have to wear masks outdoors when they walk, bike or run alone or with members of their household. They can also go maskless in small outdoor gatherings with fully vaccinated people. -AP

Three questions come to mind.

1. Do they not know that the guidelines have changed?

2. Do they just want to be EXTRA safe? Compromised immune system etc. etc.

3. Or...Have they just become accustomed to wearing a mask? AKA they just LIKE IT!

Marjo and I were discussing this on the air this morning. So, masks, although their primary reason for existing is to protect one, in this case, from getting COVID-19. But..they seem to also serve another purpose...avoiding social interactions or engagements of some kind.

In a world of internet trolling, political divisiveness, and overall general hostility, a mask can provide some sort of invisibility, right? Masks can't sort of say, "just stay away from me."

You can also hide the fact that you are snickering at someone, or possibly hide bad breath.

WHATEVER THE REASON, we wanna know if you still wear a mask when outdoors.
