How do others feel about maskless strangers sitting next to you on rides? That happened to me yesterday on Twisted Timbers, and I wasn't ready for it. I was even wearing a mask, which seems like it should have made it clear I might not want that, but no. The row behind me or front of me, sure, but sitting right next to me? No thanks. Not until this thing is really gone.
Right next to me? That's a strong no for me, even if I'm wearing a mask.
But it's clearly going to be an awkward period. At Apollo's yesterday, I was alone in the back row and there was a couple waiting in line behind me. I could tell they were sort of hesitating like "Oh, can we? Should we?" and while they weren't masked I'm not concerned about myself and there was a seat of distance anyway, so I waved them on. But if I were at Invadr in the same position, I would not have expected to cram into a car with a single passenger, and wouldn't have allowed someone to slide in next to me if I was.
I guess the lesson is "sit in the closest seat when you get on as a single rider to keep this from happening?"
