Visiting Zihua again: local best practice for mask-wearing?

Hi all, and thank you ZihuaRob (and everyone) for this informative and delightful message board. B-)

My friends and I are returning to visit Zihua this week. We're fully vaxxed but I'm curious about the most respectful way to approach mask use in general. Are people wearing masks on the sidewalks in town? Do you generally put one on to enter a shop? What about restaurants?

To be clear, I'm totally fine wearing masks anytime that it's recommended, required, or simply nice for others. Hoping to do what's best for everyone while we visit, so just let me know the vibe there these days, thanks so much!

Courtesy is the key. A LOT of us that live here are fully vaccinated, but the younger ones aren't. The 30 years olds are able to register for vaccines as of yesterday.

Entering a shop/store, absolutely, as well as entering any business. We, once seated at a restaurant, take off our masks. Walking on the street, we have them in our hands and if we get close to someone, make sure we are prepared to mask up.

Beaches? We are usually on our way to paddle or swim, and don't have masks, but are keeping courtesy space around others. We are early, so there are very few people out there.

It's all about not looking like we don't care and want to fit in.

Welcome to our paradise!

Great, that's helpful to hear in advance. We'll bring plenty of mask options, and just mask-up by default whenever entering establishments.

All that's left is hoping the weather stays tropical-storm-free.

Much appreciated!

That was the most respectful and polite inquiry regarding a visit to another country I think I've ever seen.

Do you mind being cloned about a billion times? :-)
