“experts” LOL

you mean fouci, the liar?

WC---Creeker April 21, 2021 at 2:06 PM

When the ‘science’ tells us… I thought we’re taking the vaccines to get back to normal, which means no masks. My worry… the next flu season they tell us to shut down and implement a mask mandate cause people die from complications from the flu….

Anon April 21, 2021 at 5:43 PM

Yes, this dry run was all that they needed to see what the population will allow them to get away with. The people failed.
When should it be lifted? There NEVER should have been one. And Fauci is a Fraud and a Fool.
Look at the 4,500 attendees at the Tulsa convention last weekend.
Going forward – People need to Shout Down the brown shirt mask enforcers.

Sam L April 22, 2021 at 6:17 AM

Need to reward people, this overly risk adverse approach keeping people in fear is no good! Saw survey there everyone over estimated chances of being hospitalized, even 28% of Republican leaning thought over 50% chance of going to hospital if got Covid (is really 1 – 5%)

Doh April 22, 2021 at 9:14 AM

This virus is airborne. That is how it spreads. Even Trump admitted that privately during the recorded interview with Bob Woodward on 2/7/2020; though publicly Trump said otherwise and his echo chamber repeated it. Masks work. There are many videos demonstrating the science.

I’ll stop wearing my mask when I get a sense that most people are behaving as if this virus is real and the spread diminishes down to almost zero.

This morning: Rupert Murdoch’s The New York Post spent weeks fearmongering about vaccines. Now it’s telling people to ‘GET VAXXED'”

Rollo Tomasi April 22, 2021 at 10:21 AM

@Doh:

You’re free to conduct your life as you see fit – choose your own level of risk aversion, safety, government dependence, etc – while the rest of do the same. Isn’t that GREAT?!?!?!?!?

Justifiable languor April 22, 2021 at 10:57 AM

Doh: It depends on which story you believe. However, this virus has introduced something different. Whether or not truth can be decerned.

There are some constants: DNA splicing (GMO’s), political gerimandering, lies/fraud, scaring the public, teaching systemic oppression, gangster culture seeking a toehold, cost of living speed climing, elites sneering at American middle-class, reckless migration, double standard with select groups, increased rioting, vandalism, murder.

Is the converging of all this a coincidence?

Doh April 22, 2021 at 7:16 PM

Go with reputable sources because we still have people who are dying of Covid-19.
Whether it’s advisable to wear masks outdoors isn’t black and white, and should be based on a variety of factors such as vaccination status and community transmission rates.
“If you’re vaccinated and not in a vulnerable category, it’s probably fine not to wear a mask outdoors,” Linsey Marr, an expert on the airborne transmission of viruses at Virginia Tech, told CNN in an email.
For unvaccinated people, Marr recommends masks in situations when people are clustered closely together, like in a bar, a crowd or a line.
“If you’re unvaccinated and constantly passing by people close enough that you can reach out and touch them, then you should wear a mask,” Marr told CNN.
“The real question you need to try to answer is, what is the likelihood I’m going to breathe in someone else’s air? That’s basically it. The number of people, type of setting and what is the overall viral spread in their community.”

Same April 21, 2021 at 2:08 PM

I didn’t know there was a mandate for wearing one outdoors. So sure, I guess.

Led April 21, 2021 at 2:11 PM

Yesterday. Outdoor masking is just theater and a way for people to get angry and judgmental at each other. Transmission outdoors is rare and never happens through transient or casual contact.

Specksynder April 22, 2021 at 8:20 PM

Just the same woke fokes that so desperately need to publicize their woke virtues, these wearer of Masks. The same beautiful self-back-patters that need the “in this household we believe…..” signs stuck in their lawn before the boxes are unpacked. Your new neighbors “They enjoy the smell of their own farts” as South Park once again pegged them.

Puffandstuff April 21, 2021 at 2:11 PM

Yes!!!

Puffandstuff April 21, 2021 at 2:16 PM

Has anyone else read the study from Stanford that was just released about the physical and psychological dangers of masks?
You can’t find it in the MSM but it’s there.
I highly recommend reading it.

NorwichFan April 21, 2021 at 5:32 PM

Yes, I saw and read the Stanford study on masks. Of course, FB proceeds to say it untrue. So FB, Stanford University is now lying?

Gmab April 21, 2021 at 7:19 PM
Martin April 22, 2021 at 8:19 AM

There are at least three studies that have concluded that there is no evidence that masks are effective at preventing the transmission of CV-19. The Stanford study uses a lot of information that is or was available on the CDC’s website. As far as I know, there have been no studies showing that masks are effective in preventing the transmission of this virus.
By the way, if you need HCQ, please visit aflds . org for a consultation.

Pyrrhus April 22, 2021 at 8:57 AM

Good lord you people are willfully ignorant. https://www.ucsf.edu/news/2020/06/417906/still-confused-about-masks-heres-science-behind-how-face-masks-prevent

It has links to studies and all the information you need on why masks help reduce the spread. Obviously it isn’t going to stop the spread alone. That is why we socially distance and limit touching things and being in tight enclosed spaces. It’s common sense people, it’s not some huge world wide conspiracy to enslave the masses. How many of you had friends/family get sick and die? I have, if you haven’t count yourself blessed. But you go and tell my friend’s children that they lost their mom to a fake virus. Or go tell the family of a pastor that both the pastor and his wife died because they were old and not because of the virus. Go tell my friend who spent months in the hospital and in a coma that he is just a sheep.

Get your vaccines, wear your mask, and shut the hell up so that we can get this pandemic over with. You people complain over the stupidest stuff but hand wave away social and economic issues like it’s nothing.

Mike April 22, 2021 at 9:27 AM

@GMAB – thank you for sharing the link. I clicked on the link and read the story. This text is copied directly from the link you provided.

“CLAIM: A Stanford University study published on the National Institutes of Health website proves face masks are absolutely worthless against COVID-19.

AP’S ASSESSMENT: False. This study is not affiliated with Stanford University, nor does the author work for the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System as he claims. The study presents a hypothesis that includes false claims about the health effects of wearing masks.”

Chicken Little April 22, 2021 at 10:12 AM

Pyrrhus,
It would be even more effective if everybody wore a plastic bag over their head, but we have to draw the line somewhere. It’s great that to some people, stopping the spread of COVId is the single driving factor in their lives, but some people want to balance it with other concerns.

Vindex April 21, 2021 at 2:19 PM

Now. Wear them if you want to but mandate should be lifted.

frustrated April 21, 2021 at 2:26 PM

I will continue wearing my mask for awhile. People are getting vaccinated and numbers are low buts it is not difficult for me to continue wearing the mask in most situations. I may not wear it outside walking with friends who have been vaccinated but will wear it when at the store.

Chicken Little April 21, 2021 at 6:54 PM

That is your choice and I respect it. Doesn’t mean I should be required to wear one (and I don’t when I’m outside).

idiots everywhere April 21, 2021 at 2:31 PM

Who knew there was a Outdoor Mask Mandate? This is like when they lifted the Stay at Home order. I think it is pretty clear nobody is getting Covid walking down the street.

Regular Guy April 21, 2021 at 8:13 PM

Who knew, not I. I get wearing a mask outside in a crowd, but out on the trails or in open space is ridiculous. The powers that be will not relent until cases go to zero.

Original G April 21, 2021 at 2:31 PM

Given coronavirus size is about 0.12 microns in diameter, N95 (masks) protect down to 0.1 microns, with 95% efficiency. When cloth masks are talked about, if you’ve noticed, they almost never mention filtering ability in microns. Filtering ability usually only expressed in percent. An the so called authorities have come out saying wear two masks . . . .

My opinion, cloth masks or non N95 masks are similar to using chicken wire to stop mosquitos.

Mika April 21, 2021 at 5:17 PM

Nailed it!

Rose April 21, 2021 at 7:27 PM

That’s why flu season was the best its ever been. Because masks, hand washing and six feet apart don’t work 🙄

Puffandstuff April 21, 2021 at 7:39 PM

Hey Rose you seem really angry and uptight … relax we are all just trying to figure stuff out. Don’t take things personal.

For the record I have family members that received a positive for Covid -19 and had been experiencing symptoms all survived and all faithfully wore masks outside of their homes.

Rollo Tomasi April 21, 2021 at 9:23 PM

Yes Rose, I’m sure the low flu stats had nothing to do with people cowering in their homes and keeping their children out of schools. Geez…

yeesh April 22, 2021 at 8:57 AM

Except that viruses don’t float around on their own. They’re in a droplet of some sort, so the analogy quickly becomes a tennis ball and a wire fence.
Clearly mandates are needed when the simple act of wearing a mask (comfortable ones are available) to protect lives becomes something people argue over.

bdml April 21, 2021 at 2:32 PM

We should go the Florida way. Wear one if you feel the need otherwise don’t. I don’t need officials to keep me healthy or save, got that covered.

Old Timer April 21, 2021 at 2:58 PM

Do what you want I’m still wearing mine.

Bill April 21, 2021 at 3:01 PM

Whenever it fits the Liberal agenda is when.

KT April 21, 2021 at 3:02 PM

Now. If those that still want to wear them fine. But this can’t be going on forever.

Tomato Girl April 21, 2021 at 3:06 PM

Yesterday, 6 months ago , a year ago, it’s all about mask shaming at this point though I do enjoy getting the stink eye when I’m outside not wearing my fear mask.

RANDOM TASK April 21, 2021 at 3:33 PM

because they are not experts
just democrat appointed yes people

like WHO is is owned by the Chinese

and fauchi who actually told dems to wear 2 maybe 3 masks and they do lol

so if masks work then why do we need more than 1
if masks dont work why are we wearing them

you see the hypocrisy and idiocy are combined and you are following them

lol

Anonymous April 21, 2021 at 3:34 PM

Don’t care. I’ve ignored the outdoor mask mandate since day one.

I saw a guy hiking in Briones alone with a mask on. Californians are sheep.

parent April 21, 2021 at 3:37 PM

So yeah,

Rutherford would not lift the mandate or even discuss until we get close to herd immunity. Wow, fear much Rutherford? Sorry, when other states are doing it successfully, we cannot. Hmm, so you expect me to wear my mask when no one is around me for 15 feet, but it is okay for me to sit down and eat indoors with someone without my mask … Are you the idiot the feeds the info to Gruesome?

As for me, around here, I thought mask mandate was already lifted outside. Very few people I see walking around are wearing a mask. I will not wear one, unless I go inside a business. I really want to go to a PHBA game, the organization that is making the center fielder wear a mask on the field, and just watch so their little field marshal can call me out on it .. I don’t have a kid there, so what are they going to do when I am at a public park without my mask on.

Soon to be ex-Californian April 21, 2021 at 3:38 PM

Health experts are conflicted?

I think what I learnt is that most “Health Experts” are not really experts.

They are inconsistent, often herding towards politically expedient talking points.

Hayden Barsotti April 21, 2021 at 3:39 PM

It should be now!!! Wear them if you feel comfortable, but don’t make them mandatory.

Commonsensenor April 21, 2021 at 4:14 PM

There’s an outside mask mandate? No wonder I see so many covidiots wearing them. The worst is out in our open spaces seeing people jump off the trail (into where the rattlesnakes lay), grasping their mask in complete fear when us normal people go by.

Wake up people, the covid bug is ONE THOUSAND TIMES SMALLER than your mask filtering abilities. Fact check that, I dare you.

Pete V. April 21, 2021 at 7:48 PM

One of the best places locally to see the freak-out jump off the trail is Lafayette Reservoir…it’s hilarious, I always give them at least a chuckle, or a more pointed response if they say something to me.

Bean Burner April 22, 2021 at 8:33 AM

I had a lady on the Shell Ridge Open Space Mt Diablo trail literally curl up like a pillbug and cry out ” It only works if we all do it!” when I rode by on my bike on the opposite side of the 15′ wide trail.

That was amazing and I know she was not happy when I burst out laughing.

I did the courtesy gaiter pull up for a while then just stopped. Now I dont even bother with the gaiter.

I’d estimate that 40% of trail users are maskless out there currently…

sideline April 21, 2021 at 4:17 PM

now
it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to wear a mask outdoors.

Dorothy April 21, 2021 at 4:37 PM

I’ve found the mask to be helpful in reducing my allergy reactions when outside. So I guess I’ll say: Most of the time in the future.

Dawg April 21, 2021 at 4:43 PM

There should never have been a mandate in the first place. Cheap masks that just about everybody uses are worthless, and do not block a tiny virus. None of the so-called experts have convinced me that they help stop the spread of COVID 19. In all the talk I’ve heard about how everybody should wear a mask, how come nobody ever said anything about men with beards? A man with a beard cannot achieve a tight enough fit to keep tiny particles from entering or escaping from his mouth or nose, and yet, they aren’t suggesting men should shave their beards. I recently did business with a muffler shop and the owner was not wearing a mask, nor was he demanding that I should wear a mask. Oh, what a relief, I almost forgot how nice it felt.
Don’t touch your face before washing your hands, it’s that simple.
Fauci and his minions are grandstanding quacks.

Aunt Barbara April 21, 2021 at 4:49 PM

The mask is a good way to see who is a Dem and avoid

94521 April 21, 2021 at 8:47 PM

No mask helps identify the mouth breathers, too.

BORbeliever April 21, 2021 at 4:51 PM

I didn’t even know there was an outdoor mask mandate.

Led April 21, 2021 at 4:56 PM

I’m not even sure what the terms of the mandate are for outdoors, but it definitely says, at least, everyone is supposed to wear a mask when unable to stay distanced – even outside.

Time for this to go. Way past time. It doesn’t spread outdoors unless you get in each other’s face and talk for a while close together.

A few days ago a dude asked me to make my kids wear masks outdoors, on a windy evening, because they were on a playground. (Not close to other kids,btw.) It’s ridiculous how much fear goes into far-fetched scenarios. You don’t spread respiratory illnesses by casual contact in the vast rushing mass of air outdoors.

stoptheinsanity April 21, 2021 at 4:58 PM

There should not be a mandate for wearing masks outdoors. That is just fear mongering coming from the MSM leftists.

remember April 21, 2021 at 4:59 PM

not that i believe in the covid-spriracy but has anyone looked at the labels on the masks you are buying? i am told they all say not for medical use, or at least they did until just recently and now they say for novetity use only.

thank goodness it is a naveltity virus… LOL

chuckie the troll April 21, 2021 at 5:21 PM

I never got on the mask outside or shelter in place orders.

Lucile April 21, 2021 at 5:42 PM

Many people don’t want the “mask mandate” lifted. The mask allows them to hide behind the useless little rags on their faces. No eye contact, and heaven forbid they should feel forced to partake in any form of decent, human interaction

Raiderette April 21, 2021 at 5:48 PM

I don’t wear a mask outside so they can lift the mandate whenever they want.

ProseHop April 21, 2021 at 5:51 PM

I don’t wear masks outdoors or indoors, it makes no sense at all!

Yves Harlowe April 21, 2021 at 6:04 PM

When was there a mandate to wear a mask outdoors? I’ve never worn one when outside, unless I couldn’t avoid a crowd. There’s no reason to wear one outside. The only time I wear a mask outside is when the air quality is horrendously bad from smoke, and then i wear an N95 with a valve.

Rollo Tomasi April 21, 2021 at 9:39 PM

Has he said he contracted it while not wearing a mask outside? If not, what does this have to do with the subject at hand?

Rollo Tomasi April 22, 2021 at 10:37 AM

As opposed to the left’s newly canonized George Floyd, who robbed a woman at gunpoint in front of her children, knowingly passed counterfeit money, and made a habit of ingesting lethal amounts of drugs in hopes of avoiding drug charges upon arrest? Look it up.

Strad April 21, 2021 at 7:36 PM

From what I have seen outdoors people have already made their choice, that being to go mask less.

I 100% support indoor mask mandate, but think it’s past time to lift the outdoor requirement. I think in a couple months we cam lift the indoor mandate, too. Make masks recommended, but not required. Everyone would be happy then.

Barbie Girl April 21, 2021 at 8:43 PM

My daughter and I were sitting outside at a restaurant in Walnut Creek counting the people driving alone with a mask on. It was good for a laugh.

anonares April 22, 2021 at 10:06 AM

The first couple of masked drivers that I saw caused me to wonder why they wore masks in their vehicle also. These drivers are concerned about other passengers, that may enter the vehicle later. Concern is a noun.

garbear April 21, 2021 at 8:54 PM

Texas lifted their mask mandate over 3 weeks ago, before the game where 38,000 were in attendance. Their average case rate is way down..Masks are not doing a thing now, other than government control.

KT April 21, 2021 at 10:08 PM

The only time I wore a mask outside was when we had all the fires and the sky was orange. Other then that, never have worn it outside and I wait to put it in when I’m in the store and it comes off as soon as I’m leaving.

jose April 22, 2021 at 5:21 AM

I just read the other day that the state of Oregon is going full time masking until further notice. I guess that is what you can expect from a state that has Jerry Browns sister as its governor

Cowellian April 22, 2021 at 7:55 AM

Of course the Antifa State is going all-in for masking.

BURNBABYBURN April 22, 2021 at 5:55 AM

This highlights the division on the left and right, which, in my opinion, is one of the biggest hurdles that this country faces. Non-mask, non-vaccine right criticizes the pro-mask, pro-vaccine left and visa-versa. When in reality, you are both wrong. The dem & repub parties are both pieces of crap. I’m sure I have over-simplified this, but the basis is true. Vote libertarian!

Was hiking in Briones down an exposed ridge trail…wind gusting about 25-30mph…and a youngish woman was hiking uphill. As she rushed past, she clutched her mask to her face as though she was in dire peril. Now whether she has always been a lunatic (to think any germ could pass between 2 people 10’ apart…outdoors…in 30 mph wind), I don’t know. To me, it is more likely representative of how people have been brainwashed over the past year+ to the extent that all logic and commonsense is gone.

Cellophane April 22, 2021 at 6:58 AM

When the China Virus first became news, the so-called experts became ignorant political puppets.

For the most part, they are mere political puppets still today.

The mask mandate was like the shutdowns, useless political manipulation of the masses to inject fear and maintain a fearful state of mind in the society.

Trump’s greatest failure in office was following the advice of Fauci. He gave America’s freedoms away under the guise of a health care crisis.

The face mask mandate should have never been enacted.

It should have ended many months ago.

It should end now.

WC Resident April 22, 2021 at 7:27 AM

There is no outdoor mask mandate and there never was one. The mask wearing is if you are to be within six feet of someone that’s from outside of your immediate household.

I’m still waiting for studies showing that vaccination greatly reduces the chances of getting COVID-19 and also greatly reduces the chances of getting a serious incident of the disease. There have been studies that have thrown out numbers about vaccination but have not then compared those numbers to the same for unvaccinated people. The math is not easy as we are in a period where the numbers of vaccinated are greatly increasing every day and COVID-19 takes a few days to get noticed. Once you have a time range, let’s say the month of March 2021, and the case, hospitalization, and death rates for the vaccinated vs. unvaccinated we can then see if and by how much vaccination is making a difference. That’s the science that should drive mask wearing policy or advice.

Led April 22, 2021 at 5:53 PM

But as it stands organizations follow CYA principles to require masks outdoors – like on playgrounds at parks, kids running in cross country and track practice (I kid you not), on trails in state and regional parks. And then the zealots go around policing his and harassing people who realize that outdoor transient proximity is not a risk.

Social existence would improve if a public statement removing outdoor mask guidance were made by the feds and the state. It would encourage localities and organizations to change their policies on it, and would give the public space back to the public, out of the hands of the Karens who are policing it currently.

“I’m still waiting for studies showing that vaccination greatly reduces the chances of getting COVID-19 and also greatly reduces the chances of getting a serious incident of the disease.

I don’t get what you mean. Isn’t that exactly what the Phase III studies were? Some got vaccine, some got placebo, track the symptomatic infections in each group, track hospitalizations and deaths in each group. That’s what they did.

The Professor April 22, 2021 at 8:06 AM

This stupid mandate should never have been put in place.

If a mask is so successful and Fauci recommends wearing at least two masks, then why not just tie a plastic bag around your neck? 100% Covid safety achieved.

Ever The Optimist April 22, 2021 at 8:06 AM

Bravery…just something to consider….

It breaks my heart to see how afraid and consequently controlled so many folks in the Bay Area still are, although so many are continuing to awaken using updated facts and data. Makes we wonder how many actually research or get news from outside of California/America. Y’all might be surprised at what you learn outside the Bay Area prescribed and heavily controlled narrative.

Like so many, we left Concord/Clayton for Texas well over a year ago. My Bay Area friends are shocked to learn that Texans (and many other states) have been living life as normal since June 2020, just masks inside some big stores like Costco, but only for people 10+. Most do avoid close contact with other so we don’t get sneezed on, but that’s easy enough. Young kids under 10 don’t wear masks, anywhere. Most folks don’t wear masks outside unless they have a vulnerability like age or a health condition, although right now, hardly any older folks wear a mask at all because a bunch chose to get vaccinated.

Since last summer, most folks agree wearing masks outside is illogical and unnecessary, but they do respect those who want to wear a mask, it’s a personal choice (no shaming either way). Kids have been back in school full time since last August and we’ve been celebrating with town festivals, fairs, sports, camps, etc. Businesses has been fully open for a long time as well as churches, mosques, etc. Masks indoors have been formally dropped two months ago. Like most states, we’ve moved on long ago and find it deeply sad to see how so many in Cali have no idea of what’s going on outside of their area, and are sadly in prisons of their own minds. They seem super reluctant to consider news/data outside of what they have been unconsciously consuming for so long.

For those hesitant and/or conflicted, I encourage you to stretch yourself a bit and research news and data outside of California/America. Consider MULTIPLE sources and decide for yourself using diverse, updated research. Lean into courage and help bring folks with you, be brave so you don’t miss anymore of living a full life.

Like so many, we celebrated July 4th with family and friends last year like normal, will do it again this year too, but this year we won’t be afraid to hang out both inside and out. Life is short, don’t miss out on the most precious of memories with family and friends, especially their smiles.

After all, we are the home of the brave, right? Give yourself permission to be brave, if you are healthy and chose to get the vaccine (again, a personal choice), be one of the first to shed the mask and signal to others the courage they may need to not fear societal mask shaming that seems to be so prevalent there. It may hard to see it now for some, but if some humble themselves and pan back, they may be able to better see the lifelong damage that the masks are truly doing to society and humanity.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

It should be lifted, there have been numerous studies that it cannot transmit in outdoor spaces since there’s unlimited ventilation.

Jeff (the other one?) April 22, 2021 at 9:22 AM

Did not know there was an outdoor requirement. Did not wear a mask outside, as there is no reason. Wearing them indoors is of little benefit as well, much like the 6 feet separation distance, even if just statistically, where in CCC, about 5% of the population tested positive, without understanding what percentage was 80+ years of age. I am/was one of those who kept my nose uncovered, lowered the mask if nobody around, etc. I kept it on my face more to meet the requirement of the private business owner,who had to mandate (ahhh, liberty) by order of the government. I did not want them to be penalized. Now, if these shops still require them once our oh so wise and benevolent elected (or appointed) “representatives” finally permit adults to resume unmasked life, then I will take my patronage elsewhere.

Keep them on – it’s easier to talk to people this way.
Watch for hearing aids falling off, though.

The dem & repub parties are both pieces of crap. I’m sure I have over-simplified this, but the basis is true. Vote libertarian!

uuuhhh are you not aware the machines make the votes for us …….

most votes by a huge margin ever …ever in this country

and not one audit performed

you know why

also
the newscum and biden in january were pushing for double and triple masking ( again how asinine )
then the people got enough signatures to recall the newscum
first they tried to discredit the signtures as being sloppy
but then realized they are from registered voters very easy to verify
so as to not shoot themsleves or bring about the irony of the machines electing a potus they digressed

but what happened next was astonishing
wait what the state and the newscum changed to rules again to fit the narrative …..
all of a sudden restaurants and wineries not affiliated with the governor could open with the new science that the state approved lol

insert smug dem voter face here

oh wait now disneyland can open
oh wait the tier system was changed by the newscum science

it was a hoax and control tactic that was given to them by the chinese and as they ( dem politicians ) take chinese money they had to implement it
so the machines could be used and voting rules changed to further indemnify america and its people to chinese control just ask lebron who he supports

the science proves that the so called bat virus lol particle size is barely blocked by a n95 mask

yet the state said you could use a bandanna and be safe
i am not an educated person as in i did not attend a pro china communist college
but blocking a virus with a bandana should have been the first sign using common sense that their science was based off of nothing

so yeah keep believing that a cold virus is like the plague
and your pets and the trees and your amazon packages will infect you

we are not a third world country
we are america where freedom of speech is in our constitution
but freedom of choice is now not allowed by the media or government unless it follows a democrat agenda

funny how target and walmart and costco and grocery stores where all open
with millions touching surfaces and closer than 6 feet and longer than 15 minutes on site and newscum at the french laundry

but small business was shut down and forced out

insert smooshed bewildered dem voter face here …..

THERE IS NO OUTDOOR MASK MANDATE!

Ilovepopcorn April 22, 2021 at 4:13 PM

Yes there is a mandate to wear masks outside if you are less than 6 feet from a person. We need to wear a mask until we reach heard immunity!

WhoDat Gurl April 22, 2021 at 6:26 PM

Why? There is no science to support wearing masks at all. If you’re a germaphobe or have allergies, then go ahead and wear an n95 mask to protect YOURSELF. The rest of us like to breathe fresh air, smell the flowers and drink/eat without having to manage our muzzle.

#EndTheMaskMandateNow!

Ok Claycord.com, which parameter did my comment violate?

Snickerdad April 22, 2021 at 11:04 PM

We need to take our masks off and sent them to Newsom and tell him to shove them where the sun doesn’t shine.
Do you know how many people die EVERY year of cigarette related illnesses. That number is almost 500 thousand, EVERY year. 41 thousand from second hand smoke. EVERY year.
I don’t see politicians on TV every day saying we need to put the cigarette company’s out of business, they are killing almost 500 thousands people EVERY year. Where are the politicians.
Mask wearing isn’t about Covid it about power, power over the people.

When I’m out for my walk I don’t wear a mask. I’ve had both vaccines. I generally don’t go in heavily populated areas. If I happen to run into someone I will give them space, or cross the street.

Rex Hotchkiss April 25, 2021 at 12:18 PM

Remember getting vaccinated means after tour body has time to build killer cells you will be immune, not after the shot. Give it a couple months after the shots are done, before we stop the masks.
