Wear your mask.. maybe.


 Here in Canada all governments did a pretty good job handling the virus. Also credit is due to the Canadian people, we trusted the officials and most people listened. Going forward however; now that things are opening up and we can get out, there is a complete bungling regarding wearing masks.

 The main stream media and health officials are constantly telling us that masks don't actually work, they say the virus can easily penetrate a mask. They also say that people get a false sense of security while wearing a mask and put themselves into situations with a higher risk of exposure. Plus it was found that people touch their face a lot more while wearing a mask than when they were not wearing a mask, one of the worst things a person can do while out. The main stream media and health officials are also extremely puzzled as to why a lot of people are not wearing a mask. D'uh!


  I'm not sure how accurate the above chart is, I don't know the source. However if the numbers are anywhere close to those numbers, I think the answer is clear. The point of a mask is that it stops an infected person from sending out droplets infected with the virus. Something like 10% - 20% of people show absolutely no symptoms, so they are walking around feeling fine not realizing that they are spreading the virus to others. Maybe simple education is needed, I was watching an interview with a man who owns a hair salon. He was so happy to be able to open back up, he was talking about how serious they take wearing masks and protecting their clients. In the background, we could see one of his stylist, working away... no mask on and talking to customers.

 I think health officials need to stop sending mix messages, we should just start to say wear a mask, most Canadians will comply. Data shows countries that always wear masks when there is some kind of breakout, managed to get this under control sooner. We are actually at this moment telling people that masks are ineffective but you must wear one to protect yourself if you have to take the bus or train. Confusing? My belief is let's do everything we can to avoid another lockdown! We don't want another lockdown!


 Hmmm, those blue eyes. Well maybe not this kind of mask but you people did keep telling me to get a dog!

Somehow, I don't see you using a leash, harness, or collar. But that's a cute puppy.

I like the puppy mask! Hmmm...
Now, on to the logistics: if everybody wears a mask, the contagion is less likely to happen. That's the gist of it all.
We wear masks to protect others in case we are asymptomatic and wear masks to reduce the likelihood of getting infected. Do they protect 100%? No. But that graphic is pretty accurate.
Some idiots here consider wearing masks an imposition. Idiots.

XOXO

I had to shut down discussion on a professional discussion list yesterday - people fighting over masks being a good idea or an attempt to remove our freedoms. It was all I could do to keep from telling the anti-masker that her ignorance was showing.

anti-mask freedumbers don't give five fat flying fucks about anyone but themselves.

It is just common sense. Haven't doctors been wearing masks in surgery for years? It is not just to make them look all sexy and mysterious :)

First of all, Bathwater has just destroyed all of my fantasies about surgeons.
People don't seem to understand that "free will" doesn't mean freedom to do whatever you want without consequences. I have freedom to walk on train tracks, the consequence being I could get killed by said train. I will wear a mask when leaving the house. I don't want to spread anything I may have to anyone else. I will not wear anything that looks like those pictures. I'm suffocating just gazing at them!
Cousin Itt or not, I want to see your gorgeous long red locks! Yep, still manic.

I think masks at close quarters are a good idea but people should still try to socially distance as much as possible too.

I wear a face mask a lot, and I do pull it down and touch my face. Interesting.

A mask adds a bit of mystery. How cute is that guy? And if it’s going to help me live longer I’m all for it.

I’ve seen posts where people are distributing handouts saying they have a health condition and can’t wear a mask, and you can’t ask me what it is. But if a store requires all to wear a mask, that’s not discriminating. The stores offer to do the shopping for them. That’s not good enough for these douche bags. Fuck them!

it is better than wearing nothing.
