Some of us are old enough to recall the days when you could smoke in public places. Asking for the "smoking section" was a thing in restaurants around town. As time went on, smoking indoors in a public place was completely removed and soon after came the introduction of vaping. Many places also put a ban on vaping indoors in public areas and now it may include certain outdoor areas.
As of Monday, December 13th, there is a mask mandate that will be in place in New York State. The Governor has made it mandatory to wear a mask when indoors in public areas around the state. This is response to and in anticipation of the surge of COVID-19 cases currently and over the upcoming winter.
