  1. Well, imagine if the City of Pensacola actually enforced its mask ordnance. Perhaps the number might be lower which would be better. I see lots of cars in store parking lots with Santa Rosa County, Alabama and other state tags so the city is probably helping to spread COVID-19 even further than it would if ever store enforced its mask ordinance. On February 20, I was in the Walmart on Creighton Road for just 31 minutes and counted 32 people without masks. Had I stayed a whole hour as usual I might have topped the record the week before of 49 people without masks. Perhaps if the store manager was issued a city COVID-19 citation she might take this seriously. I was also in Joe Patti’s Seafood on February 13. The place was mobbed with people banging into each other. It was elbow-to-elbow. I didn’t count the number of people without masks but there were a lot. Two store employees were wearing masks under their chin not over their masks as they dealt with customers. There was an armed security guard or perhaps a deputy. He had no mask.
