    As the mask will not stop the virus but it will cut down on your breathing and increase low oxygen levels also help reinfect your self with the bacteria/virus you just ex-hailed. What do you have to lose? only your health .

    I never leave my house/yard. No mask for me. :D

    ETA--well, maybe one of these to make the neighbors wonder what I'm up to.

    "What have you got to lose?"

    Spoken like a person who offers no justification for wearing one.
    The control and "Neighbor v Neighbor" implicit in all this is infuriating.

    I (have to) wear one in shops and public transport. Not part of any surge nor of the one that just happened in a huge slaughterhouse with ideal conditions for the virus where no masks were being worn. More than 2000 infected and the number rising, 7000 in quarantine, partial lockdown of the whole area again.

    I read about this abattoir outbreak Thomas. Senseless not to have been protected. There was a similar infection in Melbourne tho nowhere near the cases of the German one. Is the abattoir in the east.. near you?

    No, it's in the west and quite far away geographically (230 miles) but the virus doesn't care.

    Makes sense to wear a mask when in enclosed spaces

    Folks, Listen up,do a touch of research. The mask is not to protect you,although it WILL help despite what Drs. Alonzo and Anderson say. They may be internet experts, but I have not seen any credential from any medical schools. The mask is to prevent your nasty ass buggars from hanging in the air for others to suck in. Not wearing one is not a sign of independence,not a sign of freedom,is most likely the sign of a science denier and a trump supporter, and and most definitely an incredibly selfish person,
    The same people that do not feel any obligation to their neighbors,friends and fellow citizens,quite possibly fly the Gasdson banner. ( misspelling intentional,the way most fliers of the banner spell it). Don't Tread on Me,( but I will do whatever the hell I please because I have RIGHTS!)

    Hi Peter, I don't need research I use common sense (mostly)
    Wearing a mask makes sense to me, other people will feel better that I'm wearing a mask and I do too
    Even so, I'm still careful, don't get too close to others

    You are correct Patsy,most of us use the common sense that the good Lord gave us,and have no need to research such a simple thing, but others need an excuse to flout their testosterone just because, I am an AMURICEN DAMMIT, you can not require me to use my brain.
