Individuals are free to implement their own personal regulations, should they choose.  They can choose to frequent a business or not.  They can choose to wear PPE or not.  Forcing additional regulations on business owners, which leave exceptionally broad room for litigious action against the business is far more harmful.  Last time I checked, this was the U.S.  In the U.S., you are free to make your own decisions and you are responsible for your actions.  Studies and research are showing the impacts from COVID-19 are being blown-out of proportion.  It seems the studies are supported by the fact there is no marked increase of covid amdist all the "peaceful" protesters in the COVID "hot spot" areas like NYC, Seattle, Portland, and DC. The measure to make COVID-19 regulations permanent is STRONGLY OPPOSED! If instituted, it seems the U.S. Government supports it's citizens rights to gather in large groups and peacfully protest.
