This is an Oregon beach, photographed earlier this week. As you can see, it is very crowded – hah hah. Social distancing is clearly tough to do – hah hah.
Literally, we are looking at 3 miles of beach. Over this beach we saw three couples – plus 3 others who were wearing face masks. Why were they wearing face masks here? That makes no sense.
The winds were steady at 15 mph, gusting higher.
That three people thought they needed to wear a cloth face mask here illustrates the incoherent public health messaging on face masks.
