    They are mandatory here too. Like you said, people have had enough and are starting not to care anymore.

    I don't mind the masks, actually, and always wear one when I leave the house once a week. I also respect people's space and maintain the social distancing. It stresses me out when I am trying to respect other peoples space, and someone walks right up behind me or next to me. A friend of mine actually has started telling people in stores to "back off!" when she feels like they are getting too close. She said it catches a lot of people off guard, but most people will quickly apologize and back away.

    Well still no news of re-opening but today the owner posted on the centers FB account saying they are raffling off a bunch of balls. Not sure the exact details but it's $10 per number and there are 26 numbers. I think there were 9 balls total and I guess they will keep doing these raffles until they are gone. I got 2 numbers ($20). He just posted it around 8 hours ago and they are already sold out.

    Just got an e-mail from our center saying that they plan to reopen June 20th which coincides with when the state says that gyms and bowling centers open up. Iím surprised that they are going to do it when it will beat least several more weeks until they can reopen the bar.

    A few of our lanes opened last week so a few of us went bowling yesterday. Just felt good to do something normal, other than work. Timing is a bit off and my new ball (about 10 games on it) was interesting to get a feel for as the oil seemed very flat.

    They are using only the even numbered lanes. They have tape on the floor pit area of the odd lanes to encourage no sitting on the couches, but people were - we did. Still most people were social distancing for the most part. They had areas for which direction to walk in the walkways - not always followed though. And you exit through the bar, not the front entrance. Hand sanitizer available and they disinfect the seating after a lane finishes.

    They will use the even lanes for 4 weeks and then the odd lanes for 4 weeks. We can start our summer league on June 12th and bowl for 11 weeks. That house has 40 lanes so it is pretty roomy. They also put more tables in behind every lane and took away the chairs right behind the pit area/sofas.

    Ohio bowling alleys can officially open on Tues (May 26).l Where I bowl posted on FB they are in the process of making changes and have a target date of June 9. There are a number who really want to bowl. I can hardly wait!!! I feel bad for those who have to wait longer and happy for those who don't.

    Even when PA bowling centers "fully" reopen, they will only be permitted to allow 50% of their licensed capacity. The PA Governor has said that he will not permit 100% until there is a proven vaccine. That is really going to hurt a lot of businesses here in PA. Trying to make a living on half your normal allowed business is going to hurt (gyms, movie theaters, bowling centers, salons, barbers, etc.) Even restaurants and retail stores will be limited to 75%. I guess this is the "new normal" until the vaccine is developed and widely available.

    Funny thing is we have Giant Eagle grocery stores around here. The one near us has a sign on the door only allowed 750 people inside due to Covid. I don't think there has ever been more than maybe 50-75 in there at a time ever...lol

    LOL! Our Giant grocery stores around here typically have lines waiting to get in due to being at the reduced capacity limit. Costco and Walmart are likely to have lines outside, too. Home Depot as well usually has a line, unless you go during the last business hour of the day.

    On my once-a-week trip out I try to go to smaller stores like Weis, Aldi, or Lidl. Usually no lines for those.

    I avoid Wegmans unless there is simply no choice. It is just horrible to deal with.
