Melaque Mask Mandate
Posted by Lynne on August 2, 2021, 4:20 pm
About every six weeks I take the 1:30 bus to Melaque to take advantage of Farmacia Similares' 25% discount and do all the shopping that I can't do in La Manz. Today, I was rearranging packages and having a smoke on a bench in the Jardin when two men came up and offered me a free mask, stating that wearing one was now mandatory in all public places, both indoors and outdoors. I pointed to the mask that was hanging from my wrist like a bracelet, they agreed that I could finish my cigarette before putting it back on since I was sitting nowhere near anywhere else. Then, on the 3:00 bus back, a woman tried to board at El Ranchito without a mask and the driver wouldn't let her. Never in my almost 20 years in Mexico have I witnessed this level of enforcement or compliance. I'm so flabbergasted that I need to take a nap!
