In Albuquerque everyone is still expected to wear a mask, that never changed since March 2020. The businesses are doing their best to stay open and I think it helps that we do (most all) still wear the masks. One thing that is a very bad habit in the U.S. is going to work when you are sick. That is how offices of 30 people get down to a skeleton crew because one person went to work with the flu, and people have done it knowing they have covid19 as well. Some bosses set up an atmosphere where people are afraid to call in sick, others just think all that over the counter medicine is supposed to get them through the day, without ever thinking about whether they are contagious and what the effects of that are to the people they interact with. If you are sick stay home.
