    You keep saying this, but it makes no sense... Is this a "magick mask" that only protects from viruses in one direction, akin to how CO2 acts as a "magick blanket" and only "traps heat" in one direction?

    ... even if a mask exacerbates the health problem?

    There is no such thing as a magickal "one-way mask"...

    Yes.

    No it doesn't. It still gets breathed out in the openings below the eyes, on the sides of the face, and below the chin.

    And with reduced velocity...where it drops to the floor...as opposed to shooting out 10 feet and lingering in the air

    It doesn't...unless you have COPD (in which case your exposure to ANYONE should be severely limited for your own sake) and then you should have your oxygen hook up and a face shield

    Since I've been a medical professional for 40 years, I can easily spot someone who pretends to be one.

    I don't believe you.

    Meaningless considering the fact that business owners Are tasked with enforcing mask policies. They are not medical professionals.
    You come into my place of business without a mask and you will not be served and you will be asked to leave.

    period.

    that policy makes my customers feel safe enough to frequent my establishment.

    it not only reflects my concern for my employees safety it makes good business sense

    I really don't care if you do. See? This is how opinions matter very little in this type of forum.

    Utter nonsense. It doesn’t require a leap of faith to freaking understand the mask have some benefit. Clearly not a solution to the virus but an obvious deterrent.


    Your point misses one of the key biggest things we know about Covid. Length of exposure plays a huge part of the spread. Obviously make a Fessional sewer around it are going to be exposed to it for longer periods of time then you are I wearing our mass to run into the gas station for five minutes.

    It’s a simple as this, if you don’t have a mask stay the **** away from me.

    it shows that this guy supported the Trump rally and got sick, the rally should have had people wearing masks - now he has covid

    when you tell people not to wear masks and then get covid, it's gonna make the news

    I really believe that by January, 80% of the US will test positive.

    And isn't that a sad, sad state of affairs? The saddest for most of us is the fact that it didn't have to go down like this. We had lots of examples to follow - good and bad - to ensure that we brought down the curve and could re open the economy safely and successfully. But no - the USA has to do things differently. And now, we certainly are 'Number One'!

    WHich would mean 4 times the infections and four times the deaths.

    You down for that? You think this country could handle that? You think our hospitals could handle that?

    Infections yes, deaths no. We've advanced a lot medically since Feb. so deaths might be mitigated and more people recovering and being discharged. And no, our hospitals absolutely cannot handle this.

    Yup, it seems that the governments enacting these policies are asking businesses to be their "law enforcement"...

    Okay.

    If you say so... Plenty of us, on the other hand, realize that masks (even if constantly worn properly) do not stop/prevent the spread of viruses.

    How virtuous of you...

    What benefit? A mask doesn't stop/prevent the spread of a virus. This virus isn't any more lethal than the common flu is anyway... And if you look at all-cause mortality rates in the USA, this year is right in line with prior years... well, everywhere except NYC (and other areas) which were purposely bringing infected people back into senior care facilities (effectively a "mass homicide" of seniors in such facilities). The so called "covid-spike" is directly linked to such policies regarding such facilities... This is all a hoax and you're falling for it.

    It's as simple as this. If you are too much of a hypochondriac to venture out into public, then stay curled up in your basement...

    You appear to be incredibly confused, so I'm going with Number 1.

    But yes - the Pepsi Conservative MSM is having a field day with the fear/panic mongering, and their good little soldiers are spreading it far & wide.

    1 is an option in my original comment on this nonsensical topic, one drenched in fallacy and cynical fear/panic mongering.
