Mask Noncompliance

I was at Home Depot last night and a delivery person was not wearing a mask. Several employees were walking around with either their masks pulled down below their noses and/or off completely, as well as several customers without masks. At Whole Foods there was an employee stocking shelves with the mask below their nose. No one said or did anything. Is there anything that can be done about this or do we just avoid patronizing these businesses for now?

Stay home order online. I sympathize for workers having to wear mask for 8 hours+. Can’t wait to take these damn things off.

Thanks 3:28 I absolutely wear one in stores that require them because duh, I would get kicked out and I need groceries, clothes etc. I don’t wear it outdoors though. I like fresh air, not hot recycled air.

@ 12:45 - 420722 Never said they weren’t complying, they stated they couldn’t wait to get these things off and sympathized with those having to wear them 8 hrs a day. That would seem to mean they are wearing one but dislike it. You seem to be a little touchy about someone’s opinion. Do you enjoy wearing a mask? I certainly don’t but I wear one when I go out, which is not much because I hate wearing it. I too can’t wait to get these things off. And there is no way I’m wearing it if I’m walking on the pier or in a parking lot.

420722 if they bug you so much then maybe you should be the one staying home and ordering online. I am fine with wearing one.

420722 if you don't want to comply and wear a mask for the good of everyone around you then YOU stay home and order online.

In terms of the general public, the mandatory mask order goes into effect at 5pm tomorrow (Tuesday). Even without it, there is absolutely nothing you can do about another customer wearing a mask or not. Wear your own and walk down a different aisle if you feel frightened. In terms of employees not wearing masks, I would call and speak to a manager directly about your concerns.

good luck ever actually enforcing that. I actually DO fall under the exemption, but thanks for assuming, buddy.

JAYKAY these exceptions are very very narrow and most would not fall into them. YOu have to wear a mask.

maybe you should read the actual Health Order. It clearly contains lines about Exemptions for not wearing. I'm actually rather disappointed in the city for taking so long to include those lines in their mask policies. This is the first Public Health Order from SB which has contained them - https://countyofsb.org/uploadedFiles/phd/PROGRAMS/Disease_Control/Corona/Health%20Officer%20Order%202020-10.pdf

It's a new County wide rule. City rule has been in place for weeks

As far as I know SB's mandatory mask order has been in effect for at least a week now, and Goleta followed suit recently. Where are you getting this at information? Every store I've gone to including Home Depot and Whole Foods has clear signs saying masks required to enter.
