We took advantage of the early opening hours at our local supermarket and we practiced safe shopping.
This particular Harris Teeter had toilet paper, paper towels and rubber gloves, so we scored big on the necessities of life for this season.
Approximately 80% of the people in the store were confidently wearing masks as though they had been wearing them for years. The people without masks did not look comfortable and I expect they will be in masks for their next shopping trip.
I know this epidemic has permanently changed our own attitudes toward personal protection in public places, and it may have lasting effects on our behavior in times of widespread infection.
I saw a lot of plain masks like we were wearing, but there were a small number of masks with eye-catching designs. I think we will be seeing more of these fashionable mask designs very soon.
