    Masks are currently required in all Illinois state office buildings.

    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.
