      Say it was not mandatory,just a good idea to wear a mask,I get that part, stay away from me ;you know 6ft. even 4 feet won't bother me.

       So now it is mandatory to wear a mask being out in public places,no problem for me,I even wear throw away gloves.That said too many people make a Big deal out of it,like it is their right Not to wear a mask,well NO!…iF YOU ARE IN A PUBLIC PLACE THAT THE LAW SAYS YOU HAVE TO WEAR A MASK.

      If it bothers you to wear a mask,stay away from places it is mandatory to wear a mask..

      Was that hard to figure out?NO and No …..for people that think AND CARE ENOUGH ABOUT OTHERS….and that is the problem.

      Problem people have about wearing a mask at anytime is because they think it takes away their rights,or freedom to choose;ok I can see how they are thinking,individual freedom vs. the good for society.

        They even argue about "good for society"part….will you have the right to stay away from other people and not wear a mask….or go into a public place and put the mask on…don't be hating,just do it.

       Then we have the brain warped people that think anything they do not agree with is a conspiracy.

        I just had one of "those" people confront me about wearing my mask ,I was at a" burritos truck"and placing my order,she is telling me I do not have to wear my mask….like so what,I pulled it down and did a childish thing,she laughed at me and begin telling me the conspiracy story…..I don't really care lady I wear a mask when a grind,when I am weed eating ,like anytime I think fumes,dust or whatever may go up my nose.

         I wonder if most of those conspiracy people are also smokers,I do know you can not tell them from the general public…..until they are start talking…..

       Driving with a seat belt strapped on is the law,not to many people ignore it because it can save your life.

     Wearing a mask can also save you grief,think how long it took to get people to "buckle up"..guess what,we do not have that much time.

        I know some need to try harder😇 what I mean by that is this is not political,if you think it is you properly think it is a conspiracy😜

     I wish everyone well and stay safe….and use some humor.

    If the masks work then it don’t matter what anyone else does. The problem I think isn’t mask or no mask. I think it’s the lack of hand washing. People can’t keep their hands off their mask. They don’t clean their mask. They don’t wash their hands. Then they eat hamburgers and french fries on the way home. But they are protected because they work a hanky over their mouth at Walmart. In order for the mask to work there needs to be a standard material that they are made out of and they need to be worn and cared for properly. Hankies, old t shirts and the like couldn’t stop a fart let alone a virus that is many times smaller. If water vapor is getting out so is COVID-19.  I would think in order to actually really be protected one would have to practice sterile technique like scrub techs, scrub nurses, and surgeons.

    I respect my elders. Whether I agree with the whole mask thing or not doesn’t matter. I wear one so other people feel safe being around me in public. It’s a tiny little inconvenience to help others feel safer. When I see some tool not wearing one in a store, I know that person doesn’t give a crap about anyone’s feelings except their own. Oh yeah, you’re standing up for something big champ. Just not what you think.

    Wearing a mask does not really inconvenience me. So I wear one. 
    Now, Does that make me a “Sheep” or a “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing “ ? 😉

    I have no problem wearing a mask. Luckily it’s not mandatory where I work.

    Have you heard about all the doctors being silenced??

    Is it coincidence that the 2 largest hydroxy factories burnt down the same time the "vaccine" was announced? 

    Why isn't hydroxy readily available when its available OTC in many countries? 

    Why are pharmacists allowed to override a doctors prescription?

    🤔

    Just because everyone is doing it doesn't prove that it is effective. Just becuase everyone thinks it's a good idea doen't mean it is so. Two hundred years ago they used to "blood-let" people to make them feel better. At the time, this was standard procedure but today we know this was quackery.

    I say you have to understand what you are trying to accomplish and  use the right tool. Would you shoot a .177 or .30 for long range shooting? The surgical mask (and eye wear) is a tool that I have worn for over 30 years.It is used to protect the wearer and surrounding persons from paticulate spray. That means water particles from the mouth or nose. So when you are close to another person it does work. It DOES NOT work against an aersol. To prevent inhalation of the virus in the ambiant air, you would need to wear a respirator or an N95 mask. I see many people claiming to be wearing this mask but are actually wearing a KN95 which is ineffective against the virus in the air. 

    What this really means is masks do work when you are within 6 feet and it only stops water particle (spray)  from leaving your mouth or nose. It does not protect you from breathing the same air as someone else. Wearing a mask in the open air or in a car by yourself is an exercise in futility. If your goal is to not breath the air that somelse has breathed, you would need to up-grade to either an N95 mask or respirator. We in health care use the N95 when we are concerned with an aerosol spray. If you have ever tried to wear one of these masks, it is extremely difficult  for any length of time. Many of my colleages (myself included) are  having to take a  short brake in the middle of treatment to due to feeling light-headed and to caught our breath. 

    As someone stated before, the best thing to do is keep your distance and when you can't go ahead and put a mask on. I personally only wear a mask when I'm in a crowd or up close to another person. I do carry. a mask and will wear one if asked to do so. Because I am in health care, I wear a surgical mask most of my work day. 

    I thinks it's important to understand, the mask that everyone wears has only limited effectiveness and does not stop the virus in the air. I would compare this to a screen door. It does keep the flys out but the nats can still get through the screen.

      I would state that you need to understand the facts and act accordingly. If you are someone that is at risk or is afraid of contracting the virus, PLEASE keep to yourself. If you are someone that likes to tell others to put their mask on or shame others that disagree with you, I would say to back up 6 feet, turn around, and keep walking. If you do this, I am certain you will not catch the virus from me! 

    Just a side note: In the past we used to quarantine the sick not the healthy! 

    My opinion: Just because you think it is my responcibility to wear a mask in public doesn't mean I agree nor do I have to respect your request either. Although it makes you feel good to wear a mask it doesn't mean it works to the level that you think it does. 

    And yes if you were wondering, they call me Doctor at work

    The tiny droplets can enter the body through the eyes or other mucous membranes as well as the lungs. There’s only thing that I disagree with about masks, and it’s that little round plastic vent. The vent has a rubber one way valve that allows the person to suck in air through the mask itself and then as you expel the air that flap opens up and the air expelled is unfiltered…defeating half of the purpose of the mask. Masks with the vent are a dangerous weak link that I’ve never heard mentioned. Science and logic suggests that Herman Cain should have been in a mask and probably in goggles at the convention. Science please.

    Nothing wrong with wearing a mask.  Nothing wrong with NOT wearing a mask.  
     

    You do what you feel that you need to do to protect yourself and let others do what they feel they need to do.  
     

    no one is perfect.  I’m not. You’re not.  Just let people be.  
     

    why is it that the issue is people NOT wearing a mask and not people that ARE?  There is always a different perspective than our own.  Who says that our opinion is right except for ourselves.  
     

    I personally choose to wear a mask.  Some places it’s suggested.  The majority believe it’s mandatory or a law with the threat of being enforced. 
     

    let’s just focus on what keeps us united instead of division.  
     

    Posts like this are just dividing  and a house divided cannot stand.

    I only wear it when required. I don’t believe in the shutdown. I also believe immune systems do best getting sick and building immunities. Take into account that the virus is some 3 billionths of a micron small, together with the fact that the CDC up until 5 minutes ago was saying masks are not effective and that a lot of EU countries do not require them because they are ineffective, I don’t really believe in masking up. Also, I was told by my friend, a local sheriff, that the CA governor’s mandate doesn’t actually have the weight of law behind it. Meaning, there is no breaking of a law if you do not have it on, at least for the state. The mandate comes down as a recommendation essentially but they cannot impose a law forcing you to cover your face unless you are asked to leave private property and then trespass (that is the crime) or disorderly conduct (again you cannot get this simply for not having a mask). 
     

    I would wear it around an old person, and I wear them inside public places out of respect to my elders. I just don’t go that many places now days. And half of the places I go the people ask me not to mask up because they do not care and don’t wear masks themselves.

     

     

    But I think my main reason is still the immune system. Viruses have been around millions of years, and the best response isn’t hiding but allowing ourselves to fight back. Our bodies are made for it. If you are sick stay home and take precaution, especially if you are morbidly obese or are old, and if you know someone that is old or sick just be respectful and wear a mask if you are around them. Otherwise, live your life and don’t live in fear. I am more worried about our systems being weakened from other diseases, including the cold and the seasonal flu, since we have been isolated and not getting herd immunity from different viral strains.

    In Ohio a while back (April or May) a reporter asked the governor why there was no mask mandate and he skated around the question and the lieutenant governor during the same press conference said they have not mandated masks because it is unconstitutional. Since then they have mandated masks in businesses but not in public if you can social distance. In smaller communities many of the businesses are not requiring it of their customers all the time. The health depts cannot suspend licenses for business in Ohio over the masks either. https://ohioconstitution.org/ohio-court-health-departments-cannot-suspend-licenses-over-masks/. For me do what you want it’s your life but be respectful.  I always comply with a business’s request its my choice to shop there or not. We are at an indoor/outdoor waterpark resort right now and have had no issues. The rules are wear a mask to and from the park but not in the park. It appears they have reduced their capacity by about 50%

    IT's clear by the last post. All we have to do is study what makes the park so safe . And not the air around it .

    I don’t think it’s the air I think it’s the cough/sneeze/spittle we have to watch.  None of the lifeguards have face coverings and half of the waterparks staff is wearing one of these instead of a mask:
