It sucks that the front-line people have nothing to do with making the mandates they are required to enforce. I went to my doctor's office in the middle of the mess, and he had a gatekeeper set up at the entrance checking masks and taking temperatures. I had a mask with an exhaust valve on it so it filtered on inhale and vented to atmosphere on exhale. The woman actually said "That protects you, not everyone else." Obviously, that went against the narrative, but I wasn't gonna give her grief.
