@JGoldman10,
To be fair, many major companies are supportive of LGBT rights, mainly because it is not financially sound to alienate a potential demographic and their allies. It is just more profitable to be open minded.

That usually means using a rainbow design for the company profile pictures on social media (Xbox on Facebook, for example) or selling rainbow patterned products. Sometimes they would pledge to donate money to a LGBT charity.

As far as I know certain public facilities are still on lockdown, closed to the public and/or have restricted hours of operation.

I am hoping I can get the stuff I need to produce and upload web videos and the stuff I need to produce animation and comics with through Dealdash.com at least. That will save me a lot of money. I hope I can still afford to do this though.

Saturday, July 18:
President Donald Trump said he would not consider a national mandate on mask wearing in a new interview with Fox set to air on Sunday.

When asked by Fox News' Chris Wallace whether he would consider instituting a mandate, Trump responded, "No, I want people to have a certain freedom, and I don't believe in that, no."

"I don't agree with the statement that if everybody wear a mask everything disappears," Trump said. "Dr. Fauci said don't wear a mask, our Surgeon General, terrific guy, said don't wear a mask. Everybody was saying don't wear a mask. All of a sudden everybody's got to wear a mask, and as you know, masks cause problems too, with that being said, I'm a believer in masks. I think masks are good."

In the early days of the pandemic, public health officials asked people to not wear masks to save supplies for frontline workers, but now, both Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, and US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams, have repeatedly called upon Americans to wear masks in public.

During congressional testimony on June 30, Fauci said, "We recommend masks for everyone" and "masks are extremely important." Adams said last weekend that cases could be turned around in two to three weeks if everyone wore a mask.

Monday, July 20:
President Donald Trump on Monday tweeted a photo of himself wearing a mask, saying, "many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can't socially distance" and "There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President."

It wasn't clear what message, if any, he might be sending his nearly 84 million Twitter followers and supporters, but it came just hours after he said he'd resume coronavirus task force briefings at the White House amid more bad poll numbers for his handling of the coronavirus crisis.

I haven't watched TV in a long time. I don't know too much what's going on in the sports world right now as of the time of the posting of this.

I wasn't aware major league baseball returned this year:

Not only has major league baseball returned this year, NBA basketball is returning as well:

You have the internet. Read the news there. That's what I do.

Rather certain God isn't too happy about you trying to plead ignorance when all the tools for learning have been given to you.

@Sturgis,
Stop trolling. I do not have a radio; I said in another thread my old hi-fi system conked out.

I use the internet. I was just making a statement about watching TV. I haven't watched any in a long time because I still haven't gotten my Spectrum TV, internet and phone service reinstated yet.

Is the U.S. government still mandating that people wear their Covid-19 masks everywhere when they are out in public? I see a handful of people not wearing masks when I'm out in public. I know you are required by law to wear a mask or some kind of face coverings when you enter certain public facilities.

I wear a mask everywhere when I'm out in public out of habit.

@JGoldman10,
The Federal Government never mandated a nationwide order for everyone to wear masks, despite the advice of the scientific community.

The mask rule varies from state to state. In Georgia, the governor had banned cities and counties from enforcing mask requirements.
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/georgia-governor-brian-kemp-bans-city-face-mask-orders-coronavirus-pandemic/

Meanwhile, in New Jersey, the governor has ordered masks to be worn indoors in public places, as well as outdoors if social distancing can't be maintained.
https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/new-jersey-to-require-outdoor-face-masks-in-addition-to-indoor/2505387/

In addition, major stores have been placing new policies nationwide, requiring customers to wear masks.

I disagree. A number of events were cancelled and/or postponed because of the pandemic and crisis.

Were changes made to Free Comic Book Day because of this?

@Rebelofnj,
From

COVID-19 Face Coverings: Frequently Asked Questions - NYC.gov :

"Who must wear a face covering?
A New York State mandate requires everyone to wear a face covering when outside their home
if unable to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others. Examples include walking on a busy
street, going to pharmacies and grocery stores, or going to the doctor. You must wear a face
covering at all times when riding public transportation, such as the subway, ferry, bus, taxis,

and car services. It is strongly recommended that you wear a face covering as much as possible
when in a shared indoor space outside your home, such as places of worship and offices, even if you are able to maintain 6 feet of distance from others.
If you live in a facility that has shared kitchens, bathrooms, or other common spaces, wear a
face covering when you leave your apartment or room.
People who are sick should wear a face covering while at home, especially if they cannot
maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others, and at all times whenever they leave home."

There are sources that say people can be fined if they don't wear a mask or some kind of face covering in NY, like these two:

Governor Cuomo takes the issue of wearing masks and other face coverings very seriously:

@Rebelofnj,
I couldn't find anything online that states what changes were made to the events of Free Comic Book Day because of the Covid-19 pandemic and crisis.

Did you participate in Free Comic Book Day this year?

There is nothing here that indicates what changes were made:
