    Scooter won't understand. But the NON-N95 masks are to limit tge spread of the virus from the person wearing it. Think of it like thos catch straps on an aircraft carrier. They don't stop the jet fully. But slow it down so it can stop. W/o them that jet shoots off the end into the water. Same theory. It doesn't let your droplets travel as far from you compared to not wearing it.

    Wear a mask if you want. I wear mine when I have to. Place I'm going to says I need to wear it...I will. They don't...I won't. I do practice social distancing, but I did that anyway. I don't like weird, strange people I don't know all up in my personal space. Whether you got a virus or not, I'd prefer you stay away. :)

    You want people to wear masks? Get the President to do it, an to stop contradicting his health experts. an if their not health experts, why in the bloody hell do they still have a job? It's not like he's concerned about firing anyone. An this isn't political. It's fact.

    Till he and others start leading by example...expect to see this divide people more an more.

    I'm sure if these "pro-maskers" had an available source of stones at their disposal, they would of stoned her to death. This is hysteria and irrational.

    The irony of that fat lady on an electric scooter/cart, with a big package of toilet paper, joining in on the shaming melee is rich! LOL

    There are idiots on both sides of the masks. But common sense is still common sense.

    Commonsense? C'mon, man.

    These are the most up to date numbers from my state, Oregon.
    148 deaths.
    0 deaths under 40 years of age.
    145 deaths 50 years old and up.

    My county of over 100k people has 0 deaths, 0 hospitalizations and only 25 positives out of 2300 tested. Yet, our county and state has been treated the same as NYC.

    Is that commonsense?... No, it's lunacy & recklessness. Oregon Stats 05-27-2020.JPG

    In addition, they don't extract or differentiate between those who died "with" COVID-19 and those that died "of" COVID-19.

    So you're on the extreme. As I've already noted. Nothing is going to educate you. This is about the masks. Not the whole lockdown. There is a real reason for the masks. So yes commonsense of why and when to wear them.
