9 out of 49

That’s how many people wore a mask when I took a jog today.

I counted everybody I saw where I could clearly distinguish mask or not. I didn’t count:

  • small children
  • people in their yeards or in their cars
  • people about to enter stores
  • children on bicycles.

And that in one of the best-educated places in the country (Silicon Valley) where new COVID-19 cases per day are now higher than ever. Just how much bother can it be to put on your mask? You didn’t forget your pants either.

Words fail me.
