Thanks.

Shoulda looked at it myself instead of taking someone's word for it.

I've seen morning/afternoon traffic steadily increasing all week. PDX is a ghost town, but I'm seeing more and more movement by the general public.

I wonder how many people are wearing masks?

I don't care a ton that they do or not, but I think that it will become a new 'normal' requirement - whether by social 'requirement' or by state mandate.

The time I've spent at work this week (the above, and underbelly at PDX) Im saying conservatively less than 5%. When out and about, I would cut that to 1%. I've yet to see anyone in traffic sporting a mask.

Wearing masks, hoodies and sunglasses will make it easier to follow in Willie Suttons footsteps.

Until they get rid of cash, anyway.

What makes me shake my head are the ones wearing a mask covering their mouth but not their nose. Tons and tons of those.
