    Very interesting comment / questions from one of the Westerner... regarding some other issue but seems very relevant.

    Quote - If the masks work then why are we social distancing?

    If social distancing works then why are we wearing masks?

    If masks and social distancing work then why are our businesses closed?

    if we can stand in line at the grocery store then why can't we stand in line to vote?

    DC order selling norms. What about bursting. Until 2 o clock in the morning? What about soind barrier and pollution? He should specify a place for general public to burst the crackers away from house holds in each area... like they kept a kiosk for smokers in Airports! It will be not only fun but also people.may enjoy together...
