    Right..

    because the N95 actually seals up around the nose and mouth.

    Surgical masks don't seal anything. I wear them at work, and every time I breathe out I can feel the air rush past my eyeballs. Cloth bandannas and T-shirt material masks keeping a virus in our out is like trying to hold back a swarm of bees with a chain link fence.

    Here’s the mask “hierarchy”
    for protection. CBRN > P100>N99>N95>surgical/cloth
    masks.

    If you have an N95 or better, make certain that it filters out particulate matter. Some only filter out volatile chemicals.

    CBRN full face masks are the best protection (and the most expensive). Plan on spending up to $800 for one. These have dual purpose filters.

    Be certain that the N95 or better masks that you purchase are NIOSH approved.

    The idea, though they are probably playing fast and loose with the numbers.

    I am not avoiding anything.

    Here's the issue: If you feel safe wearing a mask, wear one, you are free to decide what's best for you.
    You do not get to make that choice for others, however.

    That holds for anti-gun people (Which suddenly there are a whole lot less of) If they choose not to own a gun that's their choice. They do NOT get the right to tell others that they can't!

    Pro-abortion people say "My body, My choice"


    Do you see what I'm saying, now?
    YOU and nobody else should make these decisions.

    A public health crisis that is likely to kill hundreds of thousands and send the economy deeper into recession is not the time to be focusing on trivial freedoms (such as the 'freedom' to not wear a mask). This is basterdised form of freedom that believes there are no responsibilities towards others, especially strangers.
    Freedom without responsibility is a miserable thing, not a thing that any mature personality would embrace.

    No thanks, your decision doesn't have a moral basis that can be respected.

    Are you a Gun Owner?
    You sound like an anti Gun person. A flaming Liberal democrat.
    Why are you here?
    Clearly, you do not stand for freedom and liberty. And you definitely, you never served. Go back to your "My way or the hi-way crowd"
    I wish you well.

    It is really this simple, if you are concerned about catching CoVid-19, or any other communicable diseases, the most effective method for avoiding infection isolation. Period. If you have no contact with other people you will be safe. To be extra safe you should off the internet, I hear you can get viruses from it.

    Mask wearing will not stop this virus, only slow it down. The R0 for this virus is too high. Mask wearing can keep Trauma centers and ICUs from being overwhelmed. The only way mask wearing could stop this virus would be for everyone on earth to wear a full face CBRN mask 24/7. Obviously this is not practical.

    There is a downside however. Slow the spread of the virus too much and you risk this going into flu season. If herd immunity is not achieved by the time flu season begins, we may find ourselves dealing with two respiratory viruses at the same time. People infected with both SARS CoV2 and seasonal flu at the same time will likely have a poor outcome.

    No good options. Even a vaccine may only give temporary protection.

    We need to adapt to pandemics. They are cyclical and normal. There will be another one.

    I'll drive on whichever side of the road I like and whatever speed I like. If you don't like it, stay home. Nobody makes those decisions for me.

    I see people do those things all the time. I take that knowledge and use it in my driving decisions.

    Lol, so if they made masks a LAW for public safety, instead of a recommendation, THEN you'd understand that they were important.

    If you are anti-mask, keep your distance from those who are pro-mask.
    They obviously consider you to be an un-hygienic and unclean threat to their safety.

    Somewhere between 6 feet (social distancing) and 21 feet (Tueller drill) should suffice.

    People like you are the main problem. You don't understand freedom and you are gullible enough to believe everything the mass hysteria media spoon feeds you.

    Of interest on that quote...

    SIEGEL: And what was the context of this remark?

    WITTES: He was writing about a tax dispute between the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the family of the Penns, the proprietary family of the Pennsylvania colony who ruled it from afar. And the legislature was trying to tax the Penn family lands to pay for frontier defense during the French and Indian War. And the Penn family kept instructing the governor to veto. Franklin felt that this was a great affront to the ability of the legislature to govern. And so he actually meant purchase a little temporary safety very literally. The Penn family was trying to give a lump sum of money in exchange for the General Assembly's acknowledging that it did not have the authority to tax it.

    SIEGEL: So far from being a pro-privacy quotation, if anything, it's a pro-taxation and pro-defense spending quotation.

    WITTES: It is a quotation that defends the authority of a legislature to govern in the interests of collective security. It means, in context, not quite the opposite of what it's almost always quoted as saying but much closer to the opposite than to the thing that people think it means.
