I’m not dying on any hill. Yes, if I have Covid, and properly use a mask, then I will be reducing the amount of viral droplets i eject into the air. Yet states and countries that have instituted mask requirements have often seen cases explode AFTER instituting the policy. People like you just ignore the numbers. Can’t be that you’ve missed something. Can’t be that you haven’t considered some unintended consequences. Can’t be that you don’t totally understand the virus or transmission sufficiently. It’s the stupid people who are wrong.
Maybe the virus is highly transmissable.
But my experience after the mask mandate is that tons of people are not wearing them, except in public where required. I worked in a place with hundreds of people and basically no masks worn, even in packed elevator, this was a month ago. Public couldn't come in, so no one cared.
I was playing hockey, people wore their mask to the locker room as required and immediately take it off and sit in a small room with 12 other people for 20 min pregame and 20 min post game.
This bullshit about people complying with masking is just that bullshit! I saw it every day.
So now we shutdown...
