I don’t wear a mask when I run, and where I live in Baltimore, I rarely see people wear masks when they’re outdoors. People, however, have just done a horrible job social distancing in the outdoors and I’ve, at times, had to go in te middle of the road on my runs, close to the yellow dividers to avoid people with proper distancing. It’s ridiculous — so instead of wearing a mask, making sure people follow proper protocols when they’re outdoors is big.
