Since I have not been on the road since December, can anybody give me some advice as to if Love's, Pilot, or T/A make it mandatory to wear face masks while fueling or making a purchase in the store?

It is not currently mandatory by the chain, at least for TA and Loves. However local or state mandates will be in effect. There will likely be a sign at the door of any specific location that's under those restrictions.

At the TA in Bloomsbury, NJ masks were mandatory but not at any Love's that I've been to, up & down the east coast I95 & I81 corridor.

P & D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

I recently got fuel at the Loves in Carlisle PA and masks were mandatory inside the building. I was also at the 595 truck stop in Davie, FL the other day - they had a masked guard at the door refusing entry to anyone without a mask.

I've not been to a truck stop that required a mask, so far. Since the hysteria started, I've been VA, south th AL, then as far west as AZ.

I start a trip from the Dallas area to OH10 tomorrow, so it could be completely different.

The area I run is smaller than a majority of those here but I also have not seen any requiring masks. The only difference I've seen at truck stops is most no longer have the roller grills going and some (mainly Loves) no longer allow you to dispense your own fountain drink or coffee. Instead they have an employee handling that. I'd suggest just bringing a bandana or something of that nature you can keep in your pocket and put it over your mouth and nose if you come across a place requiring it.

Patrick, I would wear a mask when going inside any truck stop just like any store or business for now. Outside no but notice inside employees are masked for protection so why shouldn't you? It's just another small safety precaution to help you and those near you. Hopefully this Covid thing will get better soon.
