I voted YES, but it's kind of a broad question. Maybe add "if social distancing is not an option."

I read the CDC's recommendations for using facemask....

CDC DOES NOT recommend that people who are WELL wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of disease to others.

The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers.

Not until the City Government starts publishing some data that are actually useful and contain some actual content about hospitalizations, area hospital capacity, demographics (particularly the age distribution of positive tests). The current dashboard is crap.

That should be a 100 percent vote. Anything that is so painless and sensible should happen.
