Accessibility and Everyday Activities in a Time After COVID-19

This weekend, I had a bit of car trouble that required my car to be towed from my home to a local dealership to be fixed. Nothing special, happens all the time, right? Well, not exactly. I came out of my house to greet the tow truck driver to make sure he knew where to take the car, etc. In doing so, I noticed he didn’t have a mask on but didn’t worry about it because we were distancing ourselves (6 feet) per CDC recommendations, and we were outside. As we were talking, he shared with me the consequences of masks for those with a hearing disability. He shared that he cannot always hear well and relies on reading lips to communicate.
