The Covid-19 pandemic has affected most Americans in ways we would never have imagined, but it seems to me we have quickly lost focus of its impact. I have generally not left home during the past 3 months except to run "essential" errands, and for the most part have found that the stores I have visited have been quite observant of practices to prevent or minimize the spread of the virus. Recently, however, to obtain supplies we needed, I visited 3 separate stores in our area (Rye-Colorado City), and was surprised that the majority of customers and staff did not wear masks and were not observing adequate social distancing. Since it appears that the greatest risk of infection occurs from close contact in enclosed spaces, this experience made me extremely uncomfortable, and made me question the understanding that those in our community have of the spread of the virus.
