Florida sheriff bans deputies, visitors from wearing masks
Wow. That's spectacular, even for America. Even for Florida.

In a country as litigious as the USA, I'd expect that sheriff to be taken to court.
That's not that different from this garbage that was happening in Georgia.

I see that the sheriff has a semi-legitimate reason for the ban: visitors must be able to be readily identified. Especially with the anti-law-enforcement sentiment with the Black Lives Matter protests.

So: somewhat less spectacular than I first thought.

As I was nearing home on my bike ride yesterday evening (about a block away), I passed a group of maskless people clustered around a high end golf cart parked in someone's driveway. I'm pretty sure I heard one of them say "He wears a mask ALL THE TIME." The tone was amused and appalled. This is patently untrue, as I'm out in my yard a lot gardening and giving my cat a supervised outing, always with no mask. When a worldview can just nudge aside the observed world, it has become a pathology.

Easy enough to snap a picture at the entrance and then mask up, and your visitor badge then contains your picture. A photographic record is certainly superior to remembering faces as far as that reasoning goes.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

“All These Rich People Can’t Stop Themselves”: The Luxe Quarantine Lives of Silicon Valley’s Elite

"Travis Kalanick is throwing (outdoor) parties, private-jet owners are hopping from safe zone to safe zone, and dinner party hosts are administering 15-minute COVID-19 rapid tests—all business as usual. “Coronavirus is a poor person’s virus,” says one source."

For those unfamiliar with TK, he's best known for being the controversial co-founder of Uber.

UNC-Chapel Hill reverses plans for in-person classes after 130 students test positive for Covid-19
https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/17/us/coron ... index.html
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill abruptly decided it will no longer hold in-person classes on campus after about 130 students tested positive for Covid-19 in the first week since classes began.

In the past week, the Covid-19 positivity rate among students rose to 13.6% of the 954 students tested, and five employees also tested positive, according to the university's Covid-19 dashboard. As of Monday morning, 177 students were in isolation and 349 were in quarantine, both on and off campus.
