Do You Plan On Wearing A Mask?  In case you haven't heard, Menard's in Bismarck starts requiring Corona Virus Masks today to enter the store.  Whether you're in favor of wearing one or not, Menard's has the right to require one to be worn and people have the right to not patronize a business that may require a mask if you don't want to wear one.

But in today's "New Normal" (I really hate that phrase), how long before Corona Virus masks are required almost everywhere?  After Menard's, next up is Starbucks and that brings us to today's SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Starbucks Requiring Coronavirus Masks: Business Insider says Starbucks is going to become the first national restaurant chain to require customers to wear coronavirus masks. Their new policy goes into effect on July 15th.

They released a statement saying, "In our continued effort in prioritizing the health and well-being of partners (employees) and customers, beginning on July 15, we will be requiring customers to wear facial coverings while visiting all company-owned café locations in the US.''

I did ask, how long before masks will be required almost everywhere.  What if they ARE required everywhere?  If you step out of your home, a mask is mandatory.  Many places have been debating mandatory masks, but Englewood, CO has actually gone there:

City Will Jail People Who Don't Wear Coronavirus Masks: The NY Post says the city of Englewood, Colorado is requiring all residents to wear coronavirus masks. First time offenders will receive a $15 ticket and $25 tickets after that up to a maximum of $2,650. After that, they will be headed to jail for a year.

I won't be heading to Englewood anytime soon, but how do you feel?  If masks are mandated at certain businesses, will you patronize them?  If masks are required everywhere in public, will you leave leave your house?  Will you shop online even more (you don't have to wear a mask while shopping on Seize The Deal)?  I'd like to hear what your thoughts are on mandatory, public mask wearing...SOMETHING YOU/I NEED TO KNOW!
