    At Sunset in HP, it seemed to be 80-20 masked to unmasked.

    Wilmette is pretty much 50/50, but Fresh Farms on Touhy is 80-90% masked. I think it's required in Evanston based on a carry-out experience, but I haven't shopped at any of their stores at all recently.

    I think that a lot of stores have gone back to a mask policy for their employees. At costco today in mettawa all employees appeared masked. Heinens, Sunset, Walgreens also. Not Marianos. It seems like customers may mask up more often when it appears that all employees are masked.

    Chicago now requires all people to wear masks in stores even if you are vaccinated. Evanston strongly encouraged people that were not vaccinated to wear masks indoors. Now they strongly encourage everybody including people who are fully vaccinated to wear masks in the stores. The mayor of Evanston just sent out a good news, bad news newsletter yesterday. Yes the number of people coming down with COVID has gone way up, but the majority of them are in the 20-29 age group, and not as many people are ending up in the hospital, and the death rate has remained stable for months.

    I was at the Jewel on the Chicago side of Howard this afternoon, and probably 90% of the customers were wearing masks. The last time I went to Sams Club in Evanston, the majority of the customers were wearing masks too. Probably 50% of the people at the Chicago Avenue Jewel were vaccinated on Saturday, but I did not get there until 10:30 pm, and so the store was not very crowded.

    I think Walmart and Sam's Club now require all of their employees to wear masks.

    General Mills (GIS) notified retail customers that it's raising prices in mid-January on hundreds of items across dozens of brands. They include Annie's, Progresso, Yoplait, Fruit Roll-Ups, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charm's, Wheaties, Reese's Puffs, Trix and more, according to letters General Mills sent to at least one major regional wholesale supplier last week. For some items, prices will go up by around 20% beginning next year.

    Must be by state. I am in SC and that was not true here earlier this week.

    Apparently the governor of South Carolina is anti mask mandate.

    From this article from October, 2021, these states have no mask mandate:

    These are the U.S. states and territories without mask mandates:

    Alabama | Alaska | American Samoa | Arizona | Arkansas | Colorado | Delaware | District of Columbia | Florida | Georgia | Idaho | Indiana | Iowa | Kansas | Kentucky | Louisiana | Maine | Maryland | Massachusetts | Michigan | Minnesota | Mississippi | Missouri | Montana | Nebraska | New Hampshire | New Jersey | North Carolina | North Dakota | Northern Mariana Islands | Ohio | Oklahoma | Pennsylvania | Rhode Island | South Carolina | South Dakota | Tennessee | Texas | Utah | Vermont | Virginia | West Virginia | Wisconsin | Wyoming

    We live in one of the eight states with mask mandates.

    Of course this is all subject to change.
