There is no blanket requirement to use a mask outdoors, but if you haven't already had COVID or been fully vaxxed, right now you'd be crazy to go outside without one. Similares with it's open air front has not been enforcing their mask requirement...they have just been enforcing a distancing metric with tape of 1.5m but that could change quickly.
Do not enter a busy store without a mask... remember some folks can get COVID and be asymptomatic, and this virus, the Delta variant, is considered by the CDC (USA) to be the most virulent respiratory pathogen they have ever seen.
I have been pleading with unvaxxed folks I know to go and get their shots... getting COVID is a rough 10 day ride, I know because I got COVID last August, and got sick, but not deathly sick, but darn sick.. and no, some don't make it.
But being Vaxxed. even with the less effective Chinese SinoVac vaxxine they are using now is better than nothing. The few(er) people who do get COVID after being vaxxed and have antibodies, don't tend to get really sick or wind up in hospital... that appears to be the goal now.
