Rob- In the situation you're describing does it make any sense for the captains or some "official" to hand out those 2 peso flimsy masks I was buying in the pharmacies when they were the only masks I could find when Covid was first being dealt with?
My naive impression is that the primary reason Mexican tourists don't wear masks is not the same as why people don't wear masks in USA. Here it seems to be part of the "rugged individualism/nobody's going to tell me what to do" syndrome.
In Mexico maybe the information hasn't penetrated, some still don't understand the reasoning or the value in donning masks.
Or simply can't be bothered.
But if offered a mask, even a flimsy one, maybe it starts a thought process which can eventually lead to real protection and concern for others?

This is something the municipal government is going to have to deal with. The community has made its message clear. If folks have enough money for vacations, then they have enough money for a proper face covering.
