I've been on a few construction sites in covid times. I am the only one wearing an N95 mask (I have a box, there are a ton of strangers with various levels of non-compliance, distancing in many situations is impossible). Most people are either no mask or cloth mask (and 90% of the time it is under the nose).I was in Home Depot today, just walked in, sanitizer at the door. They had rearranged line ups for the checkouts. There was one customer in line without a mask and talking in a foreign language. No one said anything.
There was another who had lowered his mask to his chin while talking on his phone. I don't lower my mask to talk to my wife and she doesn't have a problem hearing me.
Compliance in the USA is poor and their infection rate is far worse than ours. If they don't get the point how do we get it across to Canadians that compliance is important? If we emulate what Italy was in the spring with more dead bodies than ambulances to take them away, more people will see the reality but by then it will be too late.
Short of gestapo tactics how do we get 100% compliance? I can see the wrong kind of altercation if individuals go vigilante on non compliers.
I can't see gyms opening as there is too much huffing and puffing.
Restaurants may open but with difficulty. A bit of an exaggeration but basically a fume hood over each table and distancing. The cost will be astronomical and heating costs will soar unless an air to air heat exchanger is used, adding to the cost. Throw in preheat to all the virus in the ductwork. $$$$$$$$$$$
Social bubbles are so misunderstood. Do we need I D cards listing our bubble mates? I wonder how many people could list their bubble makes and get a passing score on distancing.
Construction seems to be getting away without many safeguards. N95 masks were designed for them and are rarely used by cement workers.
