And if they don't, why are they required? Why can I go to Costco and Walmart, but not my local mom and pop shop or restaurant? If the six foot separation helps prevent transmission, why can I walk right past someone in the grocery store, but then have to stand way behind that same person at the check stand? And what happened to wearing gloves? That was a thing when this all started, and then suddenly it wasn't.
