    I'm sorry, but I have to chuckle. My area is experiencing a major uptick in Covid infections since students returned to the area - including restaurants. So I'm not going out to eat anymore. We went out to lunch yesterday and four punks made a scene because they wanted to fly their "freedom to infect" flag and enter without masks. I didn't want to make my girlfriend uncomfortable or make the situation worse, so I just stared them down as they walked past. None of the little twerps would look up. Weasels! Knuckle-dragging breeders and weasels! So when I see stories like this, I cheer. Send 'em back home and keep their money. And that's right kiddo... this disciplinary action goes on your academic record. Suuurprise! Good!

    What's the point of wearing a mask when you enter a restaurant? You'll remove it anyway when you eat and drink.
    Our restaurants were closed all the time and will open next Monday under the pressure of those who work in this industry.
    And on Sunday I'll risk another 3 hours trip by train.
    Sometimes when I say "I'm okay" I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you're not".

    Those are just the regulations in my state. We're in Phase 3 (one step from the end) of the reopening where I live. In Phase 1, our restaurants were closed too. Where my uncle lives (same state, different area), seated dining is still prohibited. There, you can only go into a restaurant or diner and get take-out food. Some chains have elected not to allow seated dining, no matter what. McDonald's and most of the fast food chains statewide aren't allowing seated dining, no matter what the local regulations allow.

    As for the mask requirement when entering or leaving restaurants, I guess they don't want people walking by (and breathing on) other people without masks on their way to and from their table.

    All of the servers and other employees have to wear their masks at all times, unless they go outside to take a break.

    What I detested about those young punks is there were a lot of older people (wearing their masks, as any reasonable adult would do in these times) dining there yesterday. And it's the younger people who are mostly responsible for spreading the virus here. And I'm sure these idiots were too dumb to know that wearing the mask protects others from getting it from them - not protecting them from getting it.

    I just read that the police broke up ANOTHER college party. Once these kids realize that they're still going to pay the tuition bill, even though their dumb butts are sitting at home for the next two semesters, maybe they'll learn. I hope that I wasn't THAT stupid when I was 18 or 19... but yeah, I probably was. But they say that a hard head makes for a soft @$$, so there ya go.

    The usual rule is wearing when not sat at the table, which is what I stick to.

    Sorry to hear about the lockdowns that are hitting the UK and Europe again. Stay safe, folks.

    As the U.S. approaches a quarter million dead Americans and the world approaches one and a quarter million dead, hopefully we can do a better job of looking out for each other and not just thinking about ourselves. Also, let's hope for one or more (effective) vaccines and better therapeutics very shortly.
