I have noticed a big difference between Indianapolis/donut counties and most of the rest of the state.Neither of the Aldi stores I've been to in the Indianapolis area has ever enforced this mask madness.
They all have the signs, but I have never heard a single comment about me not wearing a face diaper.
I do my shopping fortnightly.
In the ~10 months since the executive order, I saw 12 people without a mask.
I pretty much remember most of them, they are that rare.
If there are, say 50 people in a store at a given time, this means I came across (10 * 2 * 50 =) 1000 people over this period of time and thus that mask compliance in grocery stores in Indianapolis is nearly ( 100 * [1000 - 12] / 1000 = ) 99%.
Ninety-nine percent compliance. This blows my mind. I always thought of the Midwest (notable exceptions notwithstanding) as the bastion of American individualism filled with liberty-loving people.
Been there several times in the last week (much to Mrs Monkey's dismay) and this is true. I dont think there is even a sign, and its about a 70/30 mix of masks to no masks on customers.I've been in the Cabela's in Noblesville a handful of times without a mask and never had anyone working there say anything about it. And that was prior to the state wide mandate being lifted.
I havent worn a mask at either place. No issuesUp in Lake County everyone still seems to have the signs up but around 1/3 to 2/3 of the patrons are wearing them and no one seems to care. I asked a few store managers and they say corporate says the signs stay but the managers often with their masks under their chins tell me to do what I want. It might make more sense to list the places that will turn you away if you don't wear one. I keep a mask in my pocket just in case but want to see who is making an issue of it.
I am anxious to test out the home improvement and supermarket chains to see who will get my future business.
Anyone been to Cabelas or Bass Pro without masks?
