I went to get a haircut yesterday, no one was wearing a mask. Only one gentleman in there (barbershop) said he had the vaccine, he asked the others if they did. NONE of them did. I was sitting there waiting, wearing my K95. I chimed in that I was wearing my mask to protect them in case I had it since 4 (yes 4!!!!) people at my school had tested positive that week. Wouldn't you know it, they all gave out an anxious chuckle and either put on a mask or hastily left. Delta is not to be messed with.
After getting vaccinated and the mask mandate lifted, I was thinking about finally going to get a haircut. Then an email came from the salon saying that now, no masks were required. If you wanted to wear one, and/or ask your stylist to wear one, that was fine. But "we won't ask you if you're vaccinated, and please don't ask us". Well, that did it for me as I knew what that meant. I'd be sitting in a salon for 2+ hours with possibly several non vaccinated people around me. I walked into the bathroom and cut my own hair!
