After the Governor's decision, Mel's Trading Post made it clear; wear a mask or wait outside.
"Employee and customers, use a mask," said owner, Mitch Mode, "If people don't want a mask we can serve them at the front or curbside service."
But for Mel's, having customers wear a mask is nothing new.
"We've used masks, today is just another day of doing masks. Quite honestly, doing pretty well and people are pretty comfortable with it," Mode said.
In other places, however, masks may not see practical, such as, Papillon's Cafe.
"I don't think it's affected us at all. You've got all the retail stores that require masks now, so it's just a part of life right now," said employee Becky Dittel.
However, the restaurant is still encouraging their patrons to wear face coverings, they just want customers to be smart about it.
"Our owner suggested that you wear your mask in, order your food, then your food comes out, of course, take your mask down and eat, then put your mask back up."
For some businesses, staying safe and comfortable is a top priority. Masks or not.
"We're not going to deviate from what we think is the best practice for employees," Mode added, "if people don't want to wear masks we'll try to accommodate them at the door. We do that because we think it makes sense."

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee's former police chief, who was demoted to captain in part for using tear gas against protesters demonstrating over George Floyd's death, has chosen to retire instead of staying with the department.
The city's Fire and Police Commission voted unanimously last week to demote Chief Alfonso Morales.
Commissioners criticized how Morales handled multiple incidents involving Black people, including the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown.
Speaking Wednesday on WTMJ-AM, Morales said he's retiring because if he returned as a captain it would be at a reduced salary and would negatively impact his pension payments.
Morales also defended his record as chief.
His attorney says he and Morales are exploring a range of legal action, including filing a claim for damages.
