All the rules seem to say that you don’t need a mask if you are under age 2 or have a relevant health limitation.
Yet none of the goon cops seem to be allowing for the latter possibility. Even if someone claims such, they’re smacking them down without consideration.
government is there to protect you from yourself .... PUT THAT MASK ON AND BE QUICK ABOUT DOING IT. !!!!!
I read about 2 young boys that collapsed and died wearing a face mask and running.
Wear a mask reduces te flow of oxygen. Detrimental to health. I never wear one except to enter where mask is required.
Government doesn’t always use common sense.
There is no reason to wear a mask outdoors with social distance. None.
[The below is copy-pasted from another thread, but I feel it contains valuable information.]
Its becoming more and more clear that Covid-19 spreads from either close, prolonged indoor contact, as with a family member or office worker, or in other closed spaces.
Big box stores like Home Depot, with 50-foot ceilings and open floor plans (just divided by shelves of products that are not walls) are more like being outdoors, where any exhaled infected aerosols are quickly dispersed to harmless levels.
This video is only 7 minutes, watch it all, particularly when they introduce ventilation to see how fast the micro droplets are dispersed. That comes at 5:40. (Its all in English after the first subtitled minute.)
I found the video in this excellent essay:
COVID-19 Superspreader Events in 28 Countries: Critical Patterns and Lessons
I also highly recommend this one. The author wrote it after studying the above essay on super spreader events.
The Risks - Know Them - Avoid Them
What I take away from the video and the 2 articles is that there is virtually no risk of being infected while outside unless you are in a really densely packed venue such as a crowded wedding or funeral for a good period of time with an infected carrier.
Inside, there is little risk in grocery stores, people are just not crowded together for a long period. I would worry about being infected by a beautician or barber who was an asymptomatic carrier. That gives you the time and proximity for a good chance to become infected. Id only do it if both of us were wearing N-95 masks, not loose surgical masks with plenty of side leakage.
The biggest risk is in packed offices, like call centers, or in church with singing, etc. The Washington State choir practice super spreader event is very telling.
Or a nightclub, like the Austrian example from above, where an asymptomatic bartender infected a bunch of his customers. In a loud nightclub, you have to lean close to a bartender to be heard, and you are practically yelling at one another, expelling vastly more droplets than in normal conversation.
Another takeaway is that the risk of catching Covid-19 from touching a surface and then your face may be greatly overestimated. In all of the super spreader events, an infected carrier was in a tight, closed place breathing on his family, friends or coworkers. In the case of the Korean call center, microdroplets infected 90% of the people on his side of the call center floor, and none on the other.
The above 2 articles were very eye opening. I hope folks will watch the video and read them.
So we had an office baby shower party.
Everyone showed up with masks, 6 feet apart, etc.
Impossible to eat/drink...even with straws.
By the end, no one was wearing masks.
You can legally be exempt from mask laws.
Just tell them you have an underlying medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, and per HIPAA and ADA laws, you are not obligated to tell them what that condition is.
I printed out such a statement and keep it with me at all times.
Yes .... so true
From the article:
“The science doesnt justify mandatory mask usage. Refuse to comply.”
Tell that to the non-service, non first responder companies making mask-wearing mandatory for their employees
My husband and I went to our Target and then to our Safeway last Saturday. Masks required. I felt faint for a half hour after we got home. I ONLY wear them where they are required, but I guess only going to one store at a time is also required.
Sounds like this needs to be Strictly Enforced in Police and Firestation GYMS All Across the County, when a few dozen cops and firemen drop dead from wearing their masks, maybe they will change their minds.
Because like all tyrants, he enjoys the power and the truth is no barrier.
I noticed that in a Walmart supercenter, the ceilings were about 20 feet high. The place was crowded with chatting, loitering goons, and it felt like a tropical reptile exhibit building in a zoo (humid, stuffy). There’s no ventilation because of the company’s policy for keeping heating and cooling bills low, security (doors closed), etc. The place reeked of bad breath, perfume and B.O.
Dark color mask with large hole.
I’m not exercising while masked, even if Fauxgan mandates wearing them outdoors.
