Default Florida is lifting covid restrictions. Would you wear a mask

If you think, as I do, that a mask reduces your chance of catching the virus, would you continue wearing one until you feel much of the risk is out there.

I personally feel a mask is effective since it is clear that droplets spread the disease. I am going to keep wearing a mask in public places until I see a significant drop in new cases.

How about you other mask wearers?

I wear a mask to respect you and you wear a mask to respect me.

If you can't wear a mask, you shouldn't be out in public. No excuse. I go to stores as soon as they open to avoid crowds. What ticks me off is to see people with a mask on but wearing it on their chin with nose/mouth exposed as I saw two dudes at Home Depot a few weeks ago, at 6:00 am.

Also weeks ago at Home Depot saw a mountain of a man about 6' 8" and 400 lbs. scream and yell at two punks who weren't wearing any mask.

In Singapore, police can deliver punish on site by caning a person for offences. I wish we had this in the US.

I have no desire to wear a mask in public. First of all, I can't breathe while wearing one. Secondly, your health is not my responsibility, any more than is paying your rent, your bills or putting food on your table.

Only if I absolutely have to, otherwise no. If you're scared of the virus, stay the **** home instead of telling everyone else what to do so you feel better.

I'll just laugh at you. You have to earn my respect. And wearing a face diaper isn't the way you get it. And if some "mountain man" screamed at me for not wearing a mask, I'd laugh right in his mountain man face and go on with my business. If he laid a hand on me, game ****ing on.

You see, unlike the socialist hell-hole you live in, here in my neck of the woods we've not been wearing masks or cucking out at all for a couple months now. Restaurants are at full capacity, businesses can request that you wear a mask but can't make you. And they better do so rather low-key because most people here will just avoid your sorry ass store if you do.

And guess what? Nobody's dying. Nobody's sick. Things are just fine.

It's all about the feelz. It gives you a sense of security. There's a better thing you can do, and that's turn off the damn TV. The fear porn is the real poison.

No, I wear a mask in place of business because they will not serve me if I don't. No other reason.

Like others have said, if coming across other humans who are not wearing masks frightens you, stay home. Get your groceries and other necessities delivered, or do contactless curbside pick up. Society as a whole should not be required to do anything simply because some small minority has a fear, especially when it is a fear that they themselves can so easily address.

This. I wear it because the business requires it. Just like no shoes, no shirt, no service. Other than that, nope.

I was in Florida a few weeks ago, I was often the ONLY person wearing a mask. Iím really surprised they havenít had a spike since Labor Day weekend.

Iíll probably continue to wear a mask in public until my family and I have been vaccinated.

Or it could be that wearing masks and all the other restrictions that were in place do absolutely nothing because it's a virus and viruses do what they do, spread. And now it's been spread. You've been exposed to it countless times.

As far as the vaccine goes, why get a vaccine for a virus that only kills 0.035% of the people that get symptomatic, and the vast majority that do die already have on average 2.5 serious co-morbidities? I mean, I guess if you are in that demographic, over about 60 and not very healthy, you could just as easily die from the flu (0.02% people die from it, all things being equal.)

And I don't care if you wear your mask for the next 20 years. But people that demand I wear one "out of respect" for them can pound sand.

So let's break this down. The CDC says wearing a mask is to protect others, not you, but you "feel" that it protects you. You also will wear one "until you see a significant drop in new cases." Just WTF is a "significant drop" and why are you worried about the number of new cases instead of the case rate, or even more important the hospitalization or death rate? Talk about brainwashed...

You can wear a mask forever for all I care, just don't expect me to do the same because of your personal "feelings."

I wear a mask only when I am required to do so (entering a place of business, the gym, or work).

I do not wear one for a second longer than I am required to do so and if they ever lift the stupid rule (not likely in the near future) I won't wear one.

At work I am not required to wear one while seated at my desk in my office or while socially distanced in a meeting room, so I don't. Many do.

At the gym I am not required to wear one while stationary and exercising; only while walking around or entering/exiting the gym. So I don't.

Nope, would not wear one. the only time a mask is appropriate is while mowing the yard. CV19 is a zero event, morbidity rates track the last few years so guess what that means? Yeah the same number of people are dying that normally would so CV19 means zip. People in nursing homes catch a cold and die from that too.
