Hi LaFonda.......yeah I put it on when I go in a store most of the time. I don't wear it if I'm out on a walking/hiking trail. I don't wear it driving in my car either. I do the social distance thing. How about you?
@ Soony - thumbs up

CDC guidelines stipulate Not masking during exercise & at least One vehicular mishap has been linked to Masking While Driving ... Re-breathing CO2, Y'all understand.

The most damned fool piece of Virtue Signalling idiocy I've Seen.
Operating a Bicycle on a public thoroughfare - WEARING A WU FLU FACE DIAPER! wow

I am NOT scold making that shit Up!!

For the record - I play along & wear one in public buildings -
But I'm under NO delusion that ear loop paper craft masks will control a Virus. laugh

Do this experiment ... Don a mask & walk past someone who's wearing cologne -
If the cologne overcomes the mask, so will Wu Flu.

Think, y'all - THINK!!

We have just been degraded to level 3... again. All alcohol banned. Talking about a 3rd wave. Quite bad here at the moment.
Must be a lot right wing repubs here ----- Very misguided understanding of masks.

The mask effectiveness is based on the sticky nature of the virus- literally. The mesh does not block the virus. It attracts it and holds it, similar concept as a dust mop.
It doesn't get all the virus but it is proven to help.

Much has been said about mask makers not guaranteeing their product. doh The profit margin for mask making versus the legal liability from a plague. Talk to your accountant. You might consider retirement and assisted living!
Just how stupid do you need to be to NOT understand the using of a maskdoh


"The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control(link is external) (ECDC) has said that the use of face coverings in public places may reduce the spread of infection in the community when worn by people who might not realise they’re infected. This is why some countries are encouraging people to wear them in public places.

So face coverings don't protect you; they protect others you may come into contact with, if you have the virus and don't realise it yet."



Even a 5 year old can understand, so can only assume that some CS members are either breaking the min age to join or have a mental capacity of a 4 year old.

Rocks in his head riz is to stupud to know what the word may means.
And for the sexually inadequate "MAY" is 100% better than NONE.
I and many others can only hope that those who are spreading false rumours about the use of a mask actually catch the virus and suffer the pain and torment the Covid carries. They are surely so deserving.doh
I know a masker who got the Wu Flu.

He saw a doc for a backache - they did a test & he showed covid antibodies.
He'd apparently had it & been Over it for some time - He underwent No treatment for it.

He'd been struck by the dread covid & never knew it.

BTW - Agreed handshake "May" is better than "None".
Wear the face diaper -
Just be aware that for Effectively containing a virus, the margin between None & May for a paper ear loop craft mask is NOT Wide.

Trusting One's Life To The Equivalent Of Few Squares Of Toilet Paper Protection From A Virus Is Magic Think.

[quote[Trusting One's Life To The Equivalent Of Few Squares Of Toilet Paper Protection From A Virus Is Magic Think.In your opinion, which is less useful than a mask at this moment in time.

Anything that can reduce the chance of spreading a virus, has to be a million time better than nothing at all.

It's a pity we don't virtue signal the hard way by actually becoming a doctor. Or at least staying in-shape.
Steps one might take to prevent/mitigate the effects of covid -

LOSE WEIGHT!
Obesity is the single most Significant indicator of an undesired covid outcome (Hospitalization/Death). My son's Very heavy father-in-law succumbed to covid.sad flower

Look into a Low Dose Aspirin Regimen for blood thinning.
Covid has been associated with the formation of blood "micro clots" causing heart attack, stroke & affecting other organs
Check with a doc before starting Any such regimen.

It's been observed Vitamin D May help prevent covid or result mild cold symptoms.

Bolster & support one's Immune System - Search the 'net for options.

For whatever it May be worth - Don the face diaper & let others FEEEEL Good. very happy

STAY HOME & AWAY FROM PEOPLE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE -
Whatever one's doing, Don't Overly Trust It. ... I.E. Don't Tempt Fate.

@ Ches - Right You Are cheers

But placing unwarranted Faith(!) in slapping the equivalent of a few squares of TP on one's face is Lots simpler & folks will go with "Quick, Simple & Easy" & trust to Magic Think.
Go figure ... dunno

If the mask is so good; why tout infection numbers when most of them have been wearing masks? apparently for what's known, they're pretty damned worthless. for the admittance of what numbers aren't known as far as infection, which speculate 50-80 times higher, the masks seem pretty pointless again. as far as underlying health conditions and age, every country will experience many spikes in the death toll over the decades to come no matter what games government(s) play out.

further more, if masks are so good and a person is wearing one, why are they so worried and in an uproar? people with immune deficiencies alone, have been wearing them with out mandates for generations and they don't seem to make the news whether it does or doesn't work out. why start being stupid now, all of a sudden?

Politics and control. that's the only real answer. governments and their games...

the only potential threat to the human race at the moment, is itself, and trusting the government(s) of the globe trying to push the political mandates.
I wonder how the "clean" and "green" crowd are going to spin the pollution from masks that may or may not be spreading sars-cov-2.

Just wait, it'll either be hushed or played by the government(s) accordingly.
Don't forget the importance of washing your hands over and over every day over and over.
