In summary: I would still recommend wearing a mask if you are going to be in an area where there is a high concentration of people (e.g., a crowded restaurant).Yes.Restrictions are set to ease in the coming weeks/months in the U.S.

Are people stocked up for a month or more?
Anyone who lives within reasonable driving distance of a Walmart Superstore hardly need to "stock up". You can get pretty much anything you need, they will do the shopping in the store for you, you just pick it up in the back parking lot with no close contact with anyone. I go there at least once a week.

Or, are you using "washable" self-made type of masks?
Yes. I do have some 'serious' ones too, but for everyday usage I think they are not necessary (if social distancing is properly taken seriously).

You can buy 'official' washable masks too.

The NY Times has done a survey of 511 epidemiologists about when they would feel good about doing a variety of different activities.

There are also lots of comments on specific questions.
