I confess that at Skate Canada neither Rosaleen nor I wore our mask most of the times we were at our seats, and no one came to mention it. The first day, we were the only spectators in the entire wheelchair section (one end of the rink), and at no time during the 3 day event was anyone within 10 feet of us while we were at our seats. While I'm not only compliant of mask rules in general, but very risk-conscious as a caregiver for a 98-year-old, I see no point in wearing a mask just because it's a rule when there is no possible risk of either transmitting or receiving the *****.Yes, they are more compliant and if you forget to put your mask back over your nose after a drink the staff will come and remind you, as witnessed at Skate Canada. Lol.
In the time of Omicron, I'm actually quite glad that we have had a mask mandate for indoor public spaces for all but a couple of months last summer in BC (and when the requirement came back, it was clearly expected based on previously-communicated criteria as Delta surged). Most people wear them just as a matter of course at this point, so there's very little drama about it (except for the occasional idiot).
