But has a law been passed to give regulating social distancing and sanitation any teeth.  The problem as I see it is that all of this is being done by decree, not law.  I agree we need to keep our distance and try to protect others as best we can, but there will always be defiant ones who claim they can't or won't comply, and legally, nothing can be done about it.  A business can reasonably refuse to serve someone who refused to follow the established guidelines, but I'll bet most won't.  I understand the constitutional arguments, but at some point public safety has to override individual concerns.

There's been many cases of employees being hurt
trying to make customers obey the store rules.

Gov of Washington has ordered that masks must be worn in all places of business. Law suits are already being filed, but most experts believe powers given to governor to promote public safety effectively cover this move.

The argument will be over whether individual governors can invoke rules that contravene the precepts of the Constitution.  If the state legislature passed a constitutional law saying "Thou Shall Follow this rule" there will still be people and organizations like the ACLU who will file a law suit, and I fear ultimately win in the long run.  My argument is that public safety, as in slowing or stopping the spread of a known deadly disease, should reasonably hold priority over folks saying, "But, but, but.....I don't wanna!  My own stepson refuses to follow the basic guidelines even though my wife, his mother, has cancer and he has two daughters, 7 and 9.  No logical argument will sway folks like that.

Went bowling last Friday for the first time in four months.  Rolled a 561 series and counted myself lucky to get that high.
Cooper (NC Gov.) is trying to shut them back down as quick as he can.  Talked to one of the Buffaloe brothers (who own the 5 alleys in
and around Raleigh) and he said it was tough trying not to go under.  They have the plexiglass up and every other lane is empty to promote
social distancing, in addition to mandatory mask wearing.  I understand the trepidation some folks have, and if you are in the target group
you should take every precaution to keep yourself safe.  That being said (and you knew a but was coming) this is a recreational pastime for 
many and if you are willing to take the "slight" risk (IMHO) and follow the guidelines, I believe you should be able to do so.
I observe many people not following these guidelines in all other manner of daily life and I simply refuse to go along with arbitrary enforcement 
of questionable practices.  Unless you have on an airtight rebreather, that cloth mask is only protecting you from bad breathe and some particle
ejection.  The virus is so small that a clothe mask is like swatting at a fly with a chain link fence.
Alright, rant off, let me close by saying that it was a joy indeed to roll the rock Friday and I plan to do so again today.
If the pro shop is open (Fingers crossed) I will get that Impulse I picked up drilled and life will be good.
Stay safe everyone and rush the lanes if you can.
Allen

Forgot to mention, the 561 series was a 158 (ugh, first game), 213 and 190 (7-10 split in the 10th).
My Track Triton Elite is quite the ball for a dry house shot.  Add in that I have changed my style from
down and in to actually throwing the ball out, I was reasonably pleased with the results.  Hopefully
the Impulse and Hammer "The Sauce" balls I am going to use this year (Good Lord willing) will
pick up my weak points.
Cheers to all,

A point of clarification.  The point of the mask isn't to protect you from inhaling the virus...no "regular" mask is going to do that. It's to prevent YOU from infecting others by stopping/greatly reducing the the amount of potentially infected droplets coming out of YOUR nose and mouth and getting into the air.  By wearing a mask you're helping to protect everybody else.

I live in New York, and there's nothing "questionable" about masks...they DO work, but only when EVERYBODY wears them.
