Chugging along the path of life

But you're kinda saying the same thing though at least to me. If the property owner put up the sign and hasn't take it down yet (either by forgetting or by design) then what Christa says still follow of respecting the sign until such time that the sign is removed. That's really no different than other instances where the owner of a building has xyz and its expected to be followed. As for whether the business follows it or not that would be something the business deals with the property owner and isn't related to the patron respecting the sign placed.Not necessarily. Many retailers had signs put up by the property company (like in large strip malls). We went to Target and Game Stop yesterday and they still had signs up because the property owner hadn't gotten around to taking the signs down yet. I specifically asked at Target if we needed to wear masks and they said no, and I pointed out the sign said otherwise and they actually didn't realize the sign was still up! The girl said "I'll let management know to take down the sign."
Same deal at Game Stop. They had added another sign next to the "masks required" sign that said masks were optional for vaccinated customers. The guy there said they were not allowed to remove signs placed there by the property owner, and had to wait for them to take it down.
So, just because there is a sign, that doesn't mean the business is following it.
It kinda goes all over. I mean if you're a franchised location a company may give you the rights to do what you want, then again they may say you need to follow our rules. A strip mall where a business pays rent to have their business there may be given the leeway to do what they want or they may not be. A salon where the stylist may rent the space from the owner may have to abide by the rules of the place. But I think the point still stands if it's up to respect it, but I also think it's not a problem to do what you did at Target about asking.
