I wanted to thank for the data points.  It corresponds to some data I 
heard around me recently.  It is very difficult to write about these things.

My current dilemma relating to other non-IETF travels is whether or not 
should I wear a mask through these transport hubs, airports, hotels, etc.

And I realize it is a hard dilemma.  Reason should prevail.  But for 
that to prevail it needs solid ground, no movement.

(I will give here my preferred analogy: my employer forbids travel to 
China but not elsewhere, just as local legislation forbids Xmeter 
distance between pesticide and house but allows (X+1)meter - is it 
meaningful or not, is that for the groups of people or is it for me as 
individual).
