Actor Ricky Schroder Argues With Costco Employee About Mask Confusion

STUDIO CITY (CBSLA) – New guidelines released by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention for when and where people should wear masks have created widespread confusion in the Los Angeles area.

In a video posted to his Facebook page Sunday, former “Silver Spoons” actor Ricky Schroder argued with a Costco employee who wouldn’t let him inside the store without a mask.

“Why aren’t you letting me in,” Schroder can be seen saying. “Nationwide, Costco has said you don’t need to have masks.”

The situation illustrated how the CDC’s new mask guidelines and the policy announcements from companies like Costco, Walmart and Trader Joe’s that followed are confusing and, in some cases, angering people.

According to both Costco’s and Walmart’s websites, the stores are allowing people in without masks, but only at locations where there are no state or local mask mandates.

While Governor Gavin Newsom said on Friday that’s he’s considering whether and when to adopt federal mask guidelines, California’s mask-mandate remains in place until at least June 15.

However, LA-are Trader Joe’s stores told CBSLA that they are allowing customers who are fully vaccinated to shop without wearing masks.

Not everyone was aware of the new mask policies and some of those who did know about the new guidelines said they didn’t yet feel comfortable shopping without their masks on.

“Even if you’re allowed to do something doesn’t mean you should always do it,” a Trader Joe’s customer said.

It’s unclear whether the state will communicate with private businesses that are lifting the mask mandate against statewide guidelines.

Short is sweet: Radium Girl author Sofi Papamarko shares her favourite Toronto short-story collections

May is Short Story Month, and we here in the GTA are lucky enough to enjoy a sparkling trove of these tiny literary gems. “Toronto is a great city for short-story writers — and writers in general — because just about anything can happen here,” says short-story writer Sofi Papamarko. “It’s not difficult to flex your creative imagination when you live in a place where thousands of different languages are spoken and millions of fascinating human interactions happen every day.” Her much-anticipated debut collection “Radium Girl” is filled with a rich variety of memorable characters, from teenage conjoined twins to a woman who cruises funerals. Short stories also make for excellent entertainment at this stage of the pandemic, Papamarko says: “Months of constant vigilance and anxiety can really sap one’s energy stores and kill attention spans dead. Short stories are the perfect format for the COVID era — they don’t ask much of us in terms of time and effort, and they deliver magic in return. A short story offers a means of escape without the significant time commitment of a novel. I love that I can immerse myself in a character, a conflict and an entire capsule world from start to finish in less time than it takes to down a cup of coffee or watch yet another episode of that thing on Netflix.” Here, Papamarko shares her picks for Toronto-penned short-story collections:“Radium Girl” by Sofi PapamarkoI try to see the good in everyone I meet; just about everyone has something endearing or admirable about them. I try to do the same with most of the characters in “Radium Girl.” There are some truly vile and unethical characters within these pages — but I bet I’ll make you fall in love with at least one of them. My greatest hope is that someone will remember a story from my collection and will continue to think about it and carry it with them. Writing short stories is all about reflection, connection and our shared humanity.“We So Seldom Look on Love” by Barbara GowdyI read this beautifully dark and disturbing collection as a teenager and it has stuck with me for years. It was Barbara Gowdy’s indelible characters, bizarre situations and exquisite prose that really opened my eyes to the possibilities of the short story.“How You Were Born” by Kate CayleyEvery last one of the stories in this Trillium Book Award-winning collection is breathtakingly beautiful, sad and deeply human. The memorable bookends are connected meditations on lesbian motherhood and what it means to be chosen family. Other stories include queer love stories, being haunted by the past and yearning to run away with the circus. One of the strongest short-story collections I’ve ever encountered.“Machines of Another Era” by Bess WinterOld Toronto takes centre stage in this collection of short stories spanning eras and styles, and hitting every note on the emotional spectrum. These stories unfold with the depth and colour usually reserved for cinema, telling equally heartbreaking and uplifting stories of the people of Toronto. I’ll never see my own city in the same way ever again.“And Also Sharks” by Jessica WestheadJessica Westhead’s characters are so earnest, so deeply kooky and so often hilarious, usually without realizing it themselves. This particular collection resonated with me at a time in my life when I was yearning for a child because motherhood was clearly on the author’s mind, as well; there are stories about pregnant women and women who have suffered miscarriages, as well as one especially memorable story about a shoplifter who casually steals an actual baby. As a freshly minted mom (to a non-shoplifted baby), I’d like to revisit this collection and see it through the bleary eyes of motherhood.
