A small, subtle change, but telling.

Habits have been adjusted.
That makes sense if people are waiting to shower until after they go out to shop.

Sadly, as the US slowly (or not so slowly) reopens, people are letting their guard down re social distancing, as if no one can get sick now that we're in phase 2 or 3 or whatever. My spouse went to the grocery store last Friday, and he said fewer people were wearing masks that two weeks before. Mask wearing is more important than ever, now that more places are open and people are getting exposed more, but in the US there's a psychological factor in play, it seems. Of course, Americans are much more uncomfortable with masks overall than people in Hong Kong.
