Definitely. Especially in light of the announcement from the CDC yesterday that cloth masks are completely ineffective nd shouldn't be worn

It's not a very big ask. We're all in this together.

Cosmic-Charlie, CDC said cloth masks aren't effective against the smoke, not the virus.

BobB, I usually appreciate your comments, however..

From the article "...smoke particulates are too small to be stopped by a cloth mask. While N95 masks will protect up to 95% of particles, down to .1 microns in size. A quick Google search will tell us that smoke particles and debris are usually .4 to .7 microns in size. According to the CDC, cloth masks are not effective in stopping materials that size."

"Another quick Google search will tell us that the Wuhan Virus is .12 microns in size, about a quarter in size of the smoke and fire debris particulate."

Orders of magnitude smaller [Virus]...

You just ruined Bob "whereamask" B's mantra. He will have nothing to say now. How cruel of you.

Viruses don’t travel through the air on their own, they travel in your saliva and other fluids. Your saliva particles are large enough to be caught by a mask, significantly reducing the spread of the virus. This has been proven over and over and over, including by the CDC.

Stop spreading misinformation. Ignorant people spreading false information like this is one of the primary reasons COVID is so widespread and is directly contributing to people dying. If we didn’t have so many brain dead anti science people living here, we could have opened the precious economy months ago. Instead, morons are running around violating health orders, ignorantly telling people not to wear masks, and continuing to spread the virus. It’s ridiculous PW hasn’t banned you yet.

This has become a boring, ignorant, lead by sheep topic for months, where I will post my last comment on this topic. For you Democrat’s (the new American Communist Party) ‘science’ has been your mantra for years- either with this flu like virus or Climate Change, and your science has been whatever you want it to be to control the population. The correct level of mask is great for short term use, but the ‘magic cotton’ that you wrap around your face All day long does absolutely nothing. FLIP-FLOP Fauci, WHO, and the CDC have gone back and forth on this subject, where you are left spinning. Even Nancy Pelosi doesn’t believe it, along with Fauci. This is not about a health crisis, it’s about politics and the Communist Party has pretty much made that clear. Just listen to the rhetoric. Even the Teachers Union has given up the ghost, and has as much said so. Your kids are going to be kept out of school until at least after the election. Hmmm.

The language police love to use phrases such as: ‘we are all in this together,’ ‘wear it for your loved one or neighbor,’ ‘be safe and thoughtful.’ More words are thrown at the public over this than at Antifa/BLM for their killing, rioting, and looting, and they don’t wear a mask.

It was too easy, too quick, and too seamless the way everyone fell in line. I imagine when they make the vaccine ‘mandatory’ all of you will say: ‘we are all in this together,’ ‘do it for your loved one or neighbor,’ ‘be safe and thoughtful.’

Do some research. Actually listen to doctors that are being censored, controlled and dismissed. Read. Paraphrasing the previous ‘First Lady,’ I’m ashamed of the behavior of Americans acting as Mask Nazi’s, calling the police on their citizens, and attacking them physically.

Don’t be sheep.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
