Double thumbs up Pstovall and thank you for providing a sensible, non-reactive response. I believe it is all about getting along with one another and if not wearing a mask makes people uncomfortable than, by all means, wear a mask. There was a news story yesterday about a young lady that went into a Starbucks with her mask under her chin. When asked to comply with the store's mask wearing policy, the young lady went into a tirade about the state requiring masks, Black lives matter and Trump twenty twenty. After getting her coffee she went out to her car, researched the state mask requirements and felt compelled to come back in to the Starbucks and conduct another temper tantrum related to the state requirement rather than complying with the store policy.
No matter what the state mandate is individual establishments can make their own rules. If you don't want to comply with that stores requirements then don't shop there. A little FYI the black lives matter has nothing to do with Trump. People are just stupid and basically this country is doomed. People need to take care of themselves and not worry about what everyone else is doing.
I have noticed the majority of people who wear a mask do not wear them correctly. So it is the same as not wearing one. I saw a woman wearing scrubs and had a health care badge on her shirt, wearing a mask, pulled the mask down and rubbed all over her nose wiping her nose on her hand, and went back to touching stuff on the shelf. Every time I saw her she was fondling her mask. Less than 10% of the people you see actually have the mask over the MOUTH and their NOSE. If you got your nose hanging out there is no sense in wearing it.
The mask is just a mental security thing. It will not stop the virus. But if it makes you feel safer to wear one then that is fine. Do some research on how many of the people who have got sick wore a mask. Do some research on how many who died wore a mask. The majority of people who have got sick were wearing a mask. It did not make any difference.
If masks would stop the virus and keep it from spreading then why are places like NY and CA, where they have the most strict policies requiring masks, also still the most infected? Oh because the mask does not work.
But it is kind of pointless to discuss it because this is just one more thing we are divided on and neither side will be swayed.
