They never should have went away.  But the politicos gave into the whining bullshiat of the anti-maskers, so here we are.

Masks should still be mandatory and enforced indoors and in enclosed spaces.

I know exactly how I got COVID. I was on a bus home from work when some young asshole was nearby standing in the middle of the crowded bus and let off a huge sneeze. Everyone looked at him. He sheepishly reached into his pocket, pulled out a mask, and put it on.

TOO LATE ASSHOLE.

Obviously the solution is more tax cuts for the rich.

"Return"?
 
2022-05-20 9:31:23 AM  
No.  Instead, the CDC and every other federal agency should be instructed to tell people not to wear masks, not wash their hands, not take any precautions.

Because that's the only way to get to the stupid farks who still won't do those things.

Only for the unvaccinated or partially vaccinated. No reason to inconvenience those of us responsible enough to get fully vaccinated

My wife got it last night. She has felt like she got hit by a bus all week.
I have a slight cough/congestion which is normal for me this time of year due to allergies.
My rapid test came back negative but they sent out my PCR test.
They said because of my close contact with her we have to quarantine for five days independently anyway!

Maybe, but we needed a break for mental health. Even as a strong supporter of masks it was starting to wear on me.

My dad just recently caught something and passed it on to me, my mother, and my sister. My father and sister took covid tests and came up negative, luckily. But I place the blame squarely on him because he never covers his mouth when he coughs, goes out all the time, and thought he just had "allergies" so didn't bother with warning us he was sick until it was too late.
 
2022-05-20 9:37:00 AM  
Never should have left.

The pandemic isn't over at all. But the government has been content to let everyone pretend it has, and the CDC has nakedly prioritized profit over well-being.

This sh*t is legitimately outrageous.
 
2022-05-20 9:37:10 AM  
"If every variant that comes, we move into shutdown thoughts, we move into panicking, we're not going to function as a city," said Adams, according to the New York Times.

Well now just basic common sense protections like masking are 'shutdown thoughts'.

Sure we enforced tons of rules and gave up a bunch of freedoms after 9/11 to make sure that never happened again after 3k people died. But when more than a million kick the bucket a face cloth is not tyranny.

So whatever the next pandemic is, if we ever finish with this one, we are truly farked.

and the anti-maskers were urged on by the right wing media in service to their overlords. so everyone would get back to work and making them money. and yeah I get it , some stuff has to continue, but to start an anti-mask campaign and undermine the CDC is a whole thing that should have been avoided.

You know the vaccine doesn't stop you from getting covid, right? It just makes it so if you do get it you don't go to the hospital and die.

The immediate and long term effects of getting covid while you are fully vaccinated are still nothing to laugh at. "Covid's over once you get vaccinated" is simply not true.

I'm not sure if serious so I will give benefit of the doubt. The primary function of a mask is to prevent your pestilence from infecting others. It will assist in the prevention of you not breathing shiat in but that's not what it's for.

Some masks are better than others at preventing you breathing shiat in but still.

danny_kay: You caught Covid through your mask?


You know what people have been saying from the very beginning?  Though everyone should wear a mask, the primary purpose of wearing a mask is to protect the healthy from the sick.  A mask on the healthy provides a decent measure of protection, but the real protection is a mask on the sick.
 
2022-05-20 9:38:34 AM

Masks in schools came off mid-March.
One week later my son came home sick
Three days later we all had symptomatic COVID

It's not farking rocket science, masks should have never gone away.

BUT MUH FREEDUMBS

It could not have been anything else. No one at work was sick or become sick around that time. And I barely left the house for anything except work. I had everything delivered.

Not again with "See? Masks are not 100% effective against Covid so why use them?" Please!!

2022-05-20 9:39:47 AM  
Why bother?  People who understand the problem continue to wear masks and take precautions.  The freeDUMMies will continue to ignore any rules they don't like. Not even TFG, their jebus replacement can get them to vaccinate.
 
2022-05-20 9:40:14 AM  
Have yet to test positive, latest this morning, though many in my orbit have (none with serious symptoms or hospitalization). Vaxxed and boosted. I wear a mask when out shopping or something. Have given up on that during concerts but the venues enforce vaccination proof, so I feel comfortable.

It would be nice to have kept the masking mandates. Just safer for all.

Could've been a different asymptomatic carrier.

Which again is a great reason for mask mandates.
 
2022-05-20 9:41:02 AM  
I never stopped wearing masks when outside the house.. but thanks for the reminder to order a few more.
 
2022-05-20 9:41:33 AM  
We should have never stopped wearing masks. (I didn't.)
Stopping the mask mandate early, as it has been many times now, is like pulling up your pants when you're almost done taking a crap.

You can still catch it and spread it being fully vaxxed. My brother brought it home to me from his workplace where nobody wears masks and half the people are unvaccinated.

No. I'm on Team Summer Surge. I want the unvaccinated to get completely punched in the mouth with sickness & death again. It amuses me. Now go kill your @&#%ing grandma this summer, D-bags.

I'm more than happy to quietly sit here at the airport & on the plane multiply-vaxxed with an N95 with the front vent valve. I don't block block my exhaled breathe anymore on purpose - the maskless unvaxxed clearly don't give a crap about not getting infected so why should I consider their safety. They want a "protect yourself & screw everyone else" policy and that's exactly what they're going to get.

I went to a public function two days ago and was one of the five percent of people wearing a mask. I was feeling a bit hot and silly until the motherfarker behind me sneezed on my back.

Cases up 60% this week in my area.

KN95 and three shots ... wish me luck

danny_kay: I was genuinely curious whether bostonguy had been wearing a mask.


Yes. I was the very last person at work to stop wearing a mask -- and that was only very recently -- even though everyone was starting to give me shiat. And I would wear it everywhere else too.

I still wear it on public transportation.
 
2022-05-20 9:44:33 AM  
It's time for a return of people wearing masks with their nose sticking out.

I have long COVID. I was fully vaccinated and boosted. I still got COVID, and now I seemingly have long-term fatigue and worse insomnia than I already had.

I don't want to hear a single f*cking person say "oh well if you're vaccinated then there's nothing to worry about" or, even worse, "who cares about case numbers anymore, only deaths and hospitalizations matter"

sniderman: "A break for mental health"? What kinda bullshiat is that?


No, that's actually sound epidemiology.

Pulling back restrictions when infections & case rates are low so people can relax & enjoy some normality makes it easier to get back to it if/when it ramps up again.

Most people just can't be eternally vigilant at all times for years on end. It's the same reasons they rotate soldiers on & off the front lines in a war.

If my vaxxed and boosted ass gets it, I'm staying home until it passes and will wear a mask for a few days back to work.  I've done my part. The unvaccinated can eat my ass.

The type of bullshiat where you're getting pissed constantly about others that refuse to wear them, the type of bullshiat where your always worried where your mask is, the type of bullshiat where you're dreaming of leaving your mask at home.

Call me weak but it took a toll because all I wanted to do was protect my family, loved ones, and strangers I don't even know.
