There are many states that are extending mask mandates, or even moving back toward closures. As coronavirus cases rise again, it is becoming even more clear that we can’t all just do what we think is best. This goes for individuals, and for states. Expect that in January, there will be some version of a nationwide protocol. It will certainly involve masks, and it may involve a true lockdown, which in spite of all the complaints about being on lockdown, we have not actually experienced yet. But clearly, we need to be more organized about reducing exposure, and dare I say it, stricter with those who flout the rules.
So, do be prepared. But prepare sanely, and with consideration. Over the coming weeks, stock up responsibly. Buy what you reasonably need to get through a few weeks. Leave the rest so that others can do the same.
