Stop the stupidity with the voluntary mask wearing. Make it legally required for public health and people that refuse 1st time fined and second time jail them.

Tell them no masks allowed on Halloween.

Nobody has the balls to do it. Americans are loud and a pain in the ass.

Americans aren't the only ones. Stupidity is universal.

In fact, if we all wore masks, Goldman Sachs says that alone could avert $1 trillion in economic loss by preventing future lockdowns.

Yeah, not gonna happen. People are in asshole mode now, and at this point, a lockdown would probably require martial marshall law. ;-)

Have we tried giving away a free Guinness bar towel or hot chocolate sampler pack with each mask?

"New Zealand reaches 100 straight days of no COVID-19 transmission"

So, yeah, Americans aren't the only ones.  Just the worst.

You don't. This is settled along with politics and religion. Nobody is going to read an article, listen to a podcast or read a Fark thread and change their mind. The lines are drawn. Mask or no mask. Dem or republican, Catholic or other.

I thought Fark's hated bankers? I guess when they agree with your opinion they are fine upstanding folks.

Even that won't matter unless the mask has to meet a standard.

I've seen some extremely flimsy/loose ones. I'm never sure if I should point out how useless they are and assume the wearer means well, or assume they are shiatbags who know they are skirting rules.

Not Corona?

Masks are mandatory in the SF bay area (~8M people) and most all counties now have fines for not wearing them. Businesses are being cited for not following rules and at least one county now has fines for people or businesses that have large gathering, don't social distance or don't wear masks. No one is going to go to jail over not wearing a mask. They're letting people out of jail early to keep cases down. I know at least one county here has fines from $100 - $500. Maybe $100 first offense, $500 for the second.

The irony is that people in the bay area are generally better educated than elsewhere, so the mask compliance rate is very high. People were wearing masks here long before it was mandatory.

Why would you try? No cheating during the natural selection process.

There should be an unused former ICE holding center. Put the repeat offenders  all in the same holding facility and any jailor that hasn't had Covid wear a bunny suit. Let them talk amongst themselves about whether it is a hoax or not for 14 days. Provide the same level of medical care as the immigrant children taken from their parents.

I wear a mask at all times to avoid accidentally ingesting Heineken.
