New Mask Rules

Finally, I got a sport mask for running.  You see.  I have resisted wearing a mask while running for a while. Don’t get me wrong. I am not  anti-mask. Just when I run, I seldom come into contact with people within 6 feet.  Plus, mask inhibits airflow.

Today, in response to the rising Covid-19 cases,  my local government tightened its mask rules.  Specifically, it ordered that “face Coverings must be worn outdoors.”  [Prior, it was a guidance to wear mask if physical distancing not feasible.]  Further, “coverings must be worn unless a person is actively engaged in eating or drinking.”

So unless I am eating or drinking while running, wearing a mask is mandatory.  The “sport” mask, made by Under Armor, is spacious, 3-layers, and light weight. I must say, I still prefer no mask if given that choice.  But at least, I have a workable solution which allows me to run outdoor.

Is mask mandatory where you are?

    I’m pretty sure masks are required at all times when outside. They change the rules once in a while and our city moves from red to yellow and back again.
    So depending on the week, you may risk getting a ticket if caught running without a mask.
    I usually keep mine off when no one is around.
    Now that it’s getting cold I don’t mind wearing a mask as much. And I’ve gotten used to it over the past 8 months.

    Yes Andy, that is why I got the sport mask. Before it, I had tried the muffler which worked okay, but it’s a bit thin. Certainly do want a ticket.
