  1. Stop n Shop in Nipomo is in violation of the mandatory mask requirement and KEYT is not setting a good example for viewers. Opening segment has cashier with mask below nose and customer mask is around his neck. Then we wonder why SLO County is raging right now. Please, please insist masks are worn when you film. This is the reporter’s and camera men’s duty to be sure there is compliance or don’t film. The young and old need reinforcement to keep masks on.
