    If you aren’t wearing a mask for whatever reason, a business has the right to refuse your entry.

    This would also include shoes, shirts, ties etc. Why does a member of the public think they have a 'right' to dictate to a private concern. If it is ok to do that, then it would be ok for a member of the public to 'demand' to co-opt whatever they want of your 'private' stuff since it is their 'right'. Give and take, trash or treasure etc. etc.

    You said that businesses should recognize that some people are exempt from wearing a mask.

    No one has a right to go into a store that prohibits it because of any exemption.

    Medical exemptions are also super rare. Even people with lung problems can wear a mask.

    And if you really are bad enough off that you can't wear one, then you are going to die if you get the slightest illness more than likely and shouldn't be going out.

    Either a business should be able to deny service to anyone they want or they should be able to deny service to no one. One way or the other.

    I put on my mask if the establishment requires it. That is the only time. I don't wear 1 if I am outside in the public. And NEVER if I am driving my car.

    Correct. I said THEY SHOULD, not that THEY MUST.
    If people don't like that fact that I am exempt and I don't wear a mask, they can wear theirs and still feel safe.

    Oh, and....FREE FULLCLIP.

    That is only true of certain medical conditions. There are certain medical conditions that are not physical issues that make wearing a mask untenable. Be glad you don't suffer from them.

    If they don't represent a restriction to breathing why do they say don't put masks on sleeping, unconscious people, or people that can't remove their own masks when unattended?

    The interesting part in all of this this is that there is no definition of what constitutes a mask. But it makes the mask-Nazis on this board and in the real world happy.

    Couldn't agree more. No more protected classes.

    Getting back to the OP AFAIK Montana is a state that allows for medical exemptions and IIRC HIPA guidelines prohibit anyone asking for proof of a medical exemption.

    I thought the reason for requiring a mask was to protect them from you, not the other way around.

    Using that logic, then only the sick should be required to wear masks, the rest of us healthy folks don't need them.

    I want a t-shirt that says "I've already had the Coof!"

    Even though I haven't.

    I'm sure this woman also supports the Right to medical choice when it comes to Abortions too.......what say you, GT?

    Interestingly, Oregon has a mandate requiring masks, however, it is not enforceable. Every business has a sign on the door, but you can't be arrested or charged for not wearing one. I've been in Safeway several times without a mask simply because I left it in the car, and I've never been harassed once about it. I'm waiting for that moment though....the first person that does is getting a piece of my mind, ESPECIALLY if it's a non-employee Karen.

    Why are you so worried about everyone else? Worry about yourself. Wear a mask if you like...or not. Your choice. My choice, too.

    I’m not worried about everyone else- just the ones who may be carrying the disease, get close to me, and cough or sneeze without any face covering. However I have no control over people who don’t care about anyone but themselves.
