Most of the people in my county are Republicans. I work for the public and my last customer is hard core Republican- Very much for social distancing and he gave me 3 masks.

Once you put it on, it's better not to touch it...

Not what I asked. I have no problem with masks. I just can’t figure out people driving by themselves, windows up, wearing a mask.

Taking a mask on and off without removing gloves or washing your hands greatly increases the risk of contamination so someone with a limited number of masks is wise to keep it on between errands, the same mask to the grocery and then the drug store keeping it on in transit. Must be a death cult member to not do a bit of research before posting your nonsense.

I hate em personally. No problem with others wearing them. I avoid areas where I would be expected to have one on unless I have no choice. Such as the doctors office. Outside here in Florida it’s pretty hot and humid. Masks can make it quite uncomfortable.

Wearing a mask in Texas used to bring out the posse.

It’s really no big deal. I just found it comical. I walk two to four miles a day. Haven’t seen many wearing a mask by themselves but saw a couple. Just thought it strange.

Part of a post by Rose42 on 5/15

We do not recommend requiring the general public who do not have symptoms of COVID-19-like illness to routinely wear cloth or surgical masks because:
There is no scientific evidence they are effective in reducing the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission
Their use may result in those wearing the masks to relax other distancing efforts because they have a sense of protection
We need to preserve the supply of surgical masks for at-risk healthcare workers.
A 2020 study in Seoul, South Korea looked at the effectiveness of surgical and cotton masks in blocking COVID-19 in a controlled comparison of four patients. The COVID-infected patients were put in negative pressure isolated rooms. The scientists compared disposable surgical masks (3 layers) with reusable cotton masks.
Patients were instructed to cough 5 times while wearing no mask, surgical mask, or cotton mask. Interestingly, all swabs from the outer masks—including surgical masks—were positive for COVID-19. Inner masks were also found to be contaminated. That means the mask did not effectively filter out the COVID virus since it is too small. The authors assert:
Neither surgical nor cotton masks effectively filtered {COVID-19} during coughs by infected patients.” Conclusion: “both surgical and cotton masks seem to be ineffective in preventing the dissemination of SARS–CoV-2 from the coughs of patients with COVID-19 to the environment and external mask surface.”

The World Health Organization does not support healthy people wearing masks
