44. I turn my back and essentially hide from customers

If they won't wear a mask, and I make sure they understand that I'm avoiding them. Most do wear one, or put one on when we ask "do you have a mask, or do you need one?" But we do get some who refuse to wear one. We have a barrier at the checkout counter, an extra line of defense, especially for the rare occasions the customer is not wearing a mask.

I'm in NC. Even with a Dem governor, he didn't impose penalties or fines and left it to businesses to manage their own compliance. Many states do the same, but some impose fines which seems to increase compliance. I work downtown, in a tourist and retirement town. Many businesses have signs requiring masks, but many have no sign and those store owners or workers aren't wearing one. Our current sign says "please wear your mask over your nose... it's a mask, not a chinstrap" and many come in chuckling as they read it.

On an unrelated note, I was supposed to be in Texas this weekend for my cousin's 75th birthday, bought tickets last December, cancelled my flight last month when cases started to soar. Been looking forward to it a long time, even though I don't like to fly in general. I was going to wear goggles and medical grade mask for my Flight, if I ended up going, if cases were declining.
Meanwhile, I knew I wasn't getting on a plane any time soon.
