Police Department Enforcing Mask Mandate
This one caught my eye. I'm a firm believer in masking up to move on. And, I still FORGET to mask up when I leave my car to enter a business.
Now, the Pullman Police Department will be enforcing the state's mask mandate. The City of Pullman issued a press release indicating that people who are found in violation may face a fine up to $5,000 and could face jail time.
I don't wear a mask in my vehicle. I feel that it's just me and my husband. We don't wear masks in our home.
I did go to a gathering of fewer than 10 people last weekend. We did not wear masks. It was a barbecue and it was great to be able to enjoy the small-talk with total strangers. I felt safe. No mask needed for me. Everyone is different.
I bring a mask when I walk the path along the river. I make sure I carry a mask with me when biking. I see some people biking with masks.
Whenever I know that I'll be encountering people, I have a mask with me. I have a stash of disposable masks in my glove box. I carry two cloth masks in my purse. Masks to me are almost as important as my reader glasses.
Never the less, there is a mask mandate in the state of Washington and the City of Pullman Police Department will be enforcing guidelines.
