Just like that, on Friday, May 14th, 2020, our governor lifted the statewide mask mandate.
Alan and I went on a date to a local restaurant yesterday and didn’t wear a mask inside. None of the customers or employees were masked. I couldn’t stop smiling. I almost felt giddy at the sight of everyone’s beautiful faces and SMILES! It was a major mental health boost for me and probably everyone else, too.
Medical facilities and schools are still mandated to wear masks, but hopefully that will end soon, too. Private businesses can still require that masks be worn, but city and county facilities are mask-free now. Anna and her friend went ice skating indoors without a mask yesterday–imagine that!
Freedom is good. Hallelujah.
