    I was in LA last week, and everyone on the street was wearing a mask. With mask-wearing in LA now universal, the city must now be Covid-free.

    Everyone is wearing masks
    Cases are increasing

    You can’t have it both ways....

    Yes masks work when worn properly. If they didn't work there would be no masks. All those thousands upon thousands of masks that are manufactured sold and worn every day in this Country are not made because they don't work. Cases are increasing because testing is increasing.

    99.9% aren’t effective.

    properly fitted n95 are, but aren’t meant to be worn long term

    Ive been saying for months more testing=more cases. Simple math.

    my point above is, the Dims want it both ways.

    I live in LA. Mask wearing is far from universal, Half the people I see on the street either don't wear one or they think hanging it off their chin qualifies. In my office building it is more of the same with constant battles between people. We call it the mask wars.

    If you watch most people wearing masks, they are either wearing the wrong type, wearing it incorrectly, re-using the same mask over and over again, constantly touch their mask with their filthy hands, or some combination of these.

    Keeping your distance from people, avoiding touching your face with your hands, washing your hands consistently, along with wearing a mask properly gives one the best chance of protecting themselves from catching it.

    You cannot trust that your family members are doing the same, and go without doing the above when home with them. If you do not maintain the protocols while at home, you run the risk of being infected by a loved one. There is a good chance that most of us will become infected with the virus.

    The best we can do is minimize our chances of catching the virus by using the above precautions until a viable vaccine comes out. It seems to be highly survivable, if you have access to care. I feel for those that are in areas where the hospitals are overrun with cases, since they have a greater risk of not surviving due to limited access to care.

    I realize I’m responding to a sheet-for-brains, mental defective idiot but if the masks work as you claim then why do we need a curfew?

    On the street = outdoors. There is minimal risk of Covid spread when outdoors. You would have to be sucking the face of a stranger. Indoors with many people is a different story.

    I am convinced the double mask works well so if both sides have a mask you are pretty safe. There have been several reports of hair and nail people who have seen dozens while they had covid with no spread. Believe what you want, it is just really too bad we can not all be on the same team when it comes to covid. It is not a political disease.

    If folks feel the need to wear one, by all means wear one.

    Just leave me alone when I cheese not to.

    This circular argument is getting old.

    Cases go down =====>
    Open business up ===>

    They are a way to control the masses, you in California will not have a good Thanksgiving, more control to come. Glad to be out of the Hell hole.

    Sisolak got on tonight and said everyone had to wear masks all of the time whether social distancing or not. He also issued orders to limit religious services and limiting Thanksgiving activities. You have to wear masks in your own house if another member of your family comes in from not in your household. Restaurants limited to 25% capacity and only 4 people can sit together. If this does not work he will totally shut NV. Fuck him. I am taking all of the steps I am going to take. I will not wear a mask in my house or outside

    So governor hair gel's edicts and curfew are unreasonable, then?

    The problem with this argument is that before this uptick in red states, the blue states went through a spike. Was their spike the result of wearing masks, xx? If not, why not? And do you have any statistics on de facto mask wearing and social interaction by region that might actually support your position that failure to wear masks is the root of all evil?
