Corporate America is scrambling to get in line on the new lockdown and mask mandate thing.
While it only applies to employees for now, you can see it coming for customers as well...
Walmart is also encouraging customers to wear masks in stores located in areas with surging cases and will be adding back signs at the entrances. It will also bring back so-called health ambassadors who will be stationed at the entrances and hand out masks.
The mask Stasi will be back. It won't be long before Wal-Mart and the rest of the major grocers will require masks again which means once again I will rarely if ever go to the big stores. Time to make a big run to get canned and less perishable food items, and then rely on the local dollar store which isn't really strict about the masks for things like milk.
You will be squeezed on every side. No mask, no milk. No vaccine, no airline (and soon interstate road) travel. No vaccine, you can't work here.
Your choices are either-or. Either you find ways to sidestep this crap now before it gets mandated or you grab your ankles and comply to get along. Just know that once you comply once, they will keep making you comply with ever more dangerous/ridiculous rules just because they can. Humiliation is a major driving force for these people.
If you have a job where it is likely you will be required to be "vaccinated" to continue employment, you need to either plan on getting jabbed or finding a new job. Should you wait until it happens or figure it out now? That seems obvious.
The thing about a lull is that by definition they are temporary and the good times are screeching to a halt right quick. Don't be crying in a few months when you are out of toilet paper and getting an experimental gene therapy jabbed in your arm because you failed to make the proper preparations now.
