During covid a lot of new rules have come into place. The main one is masks. This rule just makes it so that we have to wear a face mask whenever we go into a public area. I feel like this rule is important because it slows down the rate of which covid is spreading. I also think that masks can be annoying sometimes but that putting up with it is worth it if it means that we can be more safe. Another new rule is social distancing. This is where we have to stay 6 feet apart from each other at all times. I also think this rule is important to stop close interactions since we never know who has covid and who doesn't. This rule is harder to follow though because it means that we have to reduce the number of people allowed in a store at one time.
