Why aren't people wearing masks??


This pandemic has caused so many people lose their lives and yet over 50% of people in the grocery store are NOT wearing them. I don't understand. Are people that out of touch with what is going on in the world with COVID?

Speaking of COVID, our governor is permitting dentists to be open right now and they put their hands in your mouth and are very close in proximity when people can't wear a mask and yet my beauty shop is not permitted to open until 2 1/2 more weeks??? It makes no sense at all.

Absolutely NOTHING makes sense about this. Government handling, people, what is and isn't "essential". Enough to make one insane! And we can't even get together for sex! lol

I've been reading about masks too. What I found is not very encouraging. apparently surgical masks are three times more effective than any other (especially home made). Worse, many of the home made variety are only 2% effective. In other words, going without is just about as safe. I still wear a mask though...

The "rules" are driven by panic, not logic - even though the politicians piously tell us they are based on "scientific" data. People are not allowed to buy flower seeds or garden hoses in Michigan. To sit in cars in Louisiana church parking lots and listen to church services will result in a $500 fine for each occupant in every car. Cities keep small businesses closed but owners still must pay business license fees. Here in southern California, if caught solo paddle boarding the local harbor patrol will fine you and confiscate the board (but not the paddle). It's ok to surf in Hawaii but not ok to be on the beach...

I hope you are well.

It's so bizarre. Yes, the regulations make little sense sometimes however, I do think everyone should order an N95 mask because even the little blue surgical mask is not good enough, let alone a mask made out of a tee shirt. Yes, I agree, those regulations you just told me about make no sense at all. It burns me up....just adds to our stress and someone's going to have an MI!!

Wearing a mask MAY stop you spreading the virus but scientists say they have little effect in protecting you, further more they get damp and attract spores.
There is also evidence that they make one more aware of ones face and more likely to touch it, so all in all it is a toss up whether they are a good idea or not.

As former Occupational Therapist in a hospital, I will tell you this is true. Everyone nOT wearing a mask increases my risk of getting COVID(as well as everyone else)

 it's a shame that our leadership don't really believe in the virus and people watch and do  what they see them do witch i'm very surprised  they haven't taken any Lysol and drank any Clorox oh wait.. my mistake  there is a report of someone trying it and they claim if it's good enough for the president i can take it. stupidity don't you think , people know more than the doctors don't want listen, so they don't believe there is a virus........

There are always idiots who believe whatever they are told but sadly I have read that people have dyed from this recommendation.

This is how misinformation spreads.
I live in Michigan - there was never a ban on buying flower seeds or garden hoses. All you had to do was order on-line or call the store and have them delivered or curbside pick-up. Or they could get those things at the local (and smaller) hardware stores. But when the nice weather (finally) came, people were strolling around the garden section of big stores - no masks, no social distancing - just lollygagging in the aisles, putting others at risk. So the Governor closed those sections for a while and only in the big box stores like Walmart and Home Depot. They have been re-opened.

Unless you have the N95 mask...most aren’t that effective. The reason you should wear some type of mouth covering is to keep your germs to yourself. The government feels if everyone has one on then a less chance to spread through two masks.

To answer your other question...I feel why should the government decide who stay open and who should close? I think most of the businesses that’s are closed are the ones that don’t make that much in taxes for them?? What government worker has been laid off? What liquor or package store was forced close? Somehow you can still play the lottery...government’s only way to keep taking money from the poor.

We are not a communist nation. Our country was founded on freedom. We have the right to assemble. We get to choose....maybe we shouldn’t drive vehicles because of all the deaths that occur in auto accidents????

Why aren39t people wearing masks

Yes, everyone has a right to assemble but the consequences of that may be dire and is that something to be ignored?? Can't believe you're comparing a global pandemic to car accidents . Are you watching the news at all?? People are dying in vast numbers simply by being near others who are passing this infection on by no fault of their own.

I read where the country will not get back to the pre-virus "normal" until approximately 60% of the population, roughly 180 million people, have been exposed to the virus. Hope they're working as hard as they can on that vaccine.

I have to feel that those that are not using a mask when in the presence of other people are risking us- not themselves BUT they are also exhibiting and " I am invincible" characteristics that I find appalling. They refuse to educate themselves about what this virus can do. I wear a mask as I do not know if I am an asymmtomatic carrier. Folks need to open their brains- 10 minutes will do it

PS: Our state dental professional membership have all decided no dentist is going to open and a few are doing emergency work only by prior phone call to get an appointment. I dont want one in my face with my open mouth and my spittle perhaps endangering them as they work on me. Have to stop the spread

It has already been mentioned that masks r not very effective and besides have u noticed that so many people r not wearing them correctly!
They r sloppy homemade, loose fit, they r hanging around their neck, they don't have their nose covered and so on! Most employees don't even wear them!!!!!
Employees wear rubber gloves. but never change them, after a few hours they r not even protecting them.
Just say'n !

Masks are not comfortable and make a person more likely to touch it. There are specific ways to put on and remove medical masks - most people can't or won't do that. Also, half the people I see wearing a mask do not have it on correctly.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

.....seeing the same percentage of wearers and non-wearers everywhere.... time will tell what happens to the broad population.... for each of the individuals that contract the disease, best wishes for a safe outcome....

Because all of the panic is over-hyped media BS. Are we going to do this every flu season? The numbers for Covid are comparable to a bad seasonal flu WITH a vaccine available. All of the fear, masks, etc are completely ridiculous


spanksme195 replies on 5/19/2020 10:30 am:
Absolutely do NOT agree with you. This pandemic has been way worse with far more fatalities than the flu. Go right ahead and feel invincible, not wearing a mask and if you get COVID...well, what more can I say?
