Preventing against a flu virus that has a 99% survival rate?
No, in helping to prevent me from suffering because of some other inconsiderate ashole.
Statistics show otherwise.
Is that why all healthcare workers wear them ?......to hide their pretty smile ?
we wouldn't have seen spikes the past few months.
Dirk you are smarter then that.
The reason we have seen a spike is because people like you have become lackadaisical about social distancing, wearing masks, attending funerals, weddings and other social gatherings.
One way to help with the problem would be to have anyone who refuses to wear a mask or social distance sign a form that they believe like you do.
Then when they show up to take up a hospital bed they can be denied for being stupid.
My comment was about the over-obedient idiots who wear masks when there is no medical justification.
Nope, you said that you take it off inside public buildings where you have been ask by the owner to wear one.
But when I am in a nearly empty store and nobody is next to me, my mask comes off.
Is that what the sign on the door said ?
Take your mask off if no one is around ?
Of course not.
Don't make up excuses as you go, Rich.
Because no one is around you are still leaving your germs on such things as fresh produce.
And you may not know if you have the virus or not.
