I'm sure you've probably seen these people around, they will stand far from you and wait for you to pass them, even when there's plenty of space available, on sidewalks and in parks. I encounter these types on the trails I frequent occasionally. They think they're doing you a favor. It's one of the most ridiculous and pitiful displays I have seen in my life. Fortunately it's only about one out of five of these types on my walks now as the muzzle is now fading as the fashion statement for virtue-signalers and I think people are missing human contact as opposed to "physical distancing" (another word for isolation). Lately I see more free human beings walking about which is a small thing I look forward to. I still see plenty of people put their muzzles on to walk into the store, but otherwise a lot of people are not wearing them out in the suburbs. Today on my walk, I walked by a cute blonde 20-something gal. We smiled and said hello. Felt like we had a "moment" even though it was just a hello. Almost as if we both said internally, "Finally another sane human being." Of course I'm a hermit so I don't mean to generalize. I'm sure there's people that still have normal social lives now out there, even now when it's harder to meet people.
