So what about the people that have actual jobs and are at work all day? What about the children that go to school all day? Just because some people are well off enough to work at home all day does not mean others should not be questioning the pointless use of masks among healthy people, and particularly for children. Kids should not be wearing mask at school for many many reasons, and there is not a single science based reason to force them to wear them. Actually there is not a single science based reason to make most healthy people wear them at all anywhere. There is no reason and people should not be required to wear them all day just so they can support their families. It is insane, and we are all doing the bidding now of insane, mentally ill, stupid bullies....that is the only fact not up for debate amongst everyone except the insane, mentally ill, and stupid bullies pushing all of this nonsense. If businesses want to require masks, that is their choice. If private schools want to require masks that is their choice. If students or teachers want to go to public schools wearing masks that is there choice, but forcing children to do something to their detriment is child abuse and it should be stopped and the morons pushing it should be sued unless they can provide evidence to justify the abuse to our children.
So many questions.
The primary recommendation is to avoid contact and keep your distance from others.
Masks are only required when you cannot social distance.
There is a reason -- to limit the spread of the virus.
People at work all day should wear a mask when they cannot social distance.
Children at school all day should wear a mask when they cannot social distance.
I asked my daughter if she can breath with a mask on, and she said yes.
You say no single science based reason for not wearing masks, but this ignores the science based reasons that guided the mask wearing recommendations, when you cannot social distance.
The recommendation to wear masks only applies to medical workers and the infected.
It is not necessary that healthy people not shedding virus wear masks to avoid spreading the virus.
Yet asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic people shedding virus should wear a mask to prevent the uncontrolled spread of the virus.
You say words like child abuse, insane, mentally ill, stupid bullies, and many, many reasons -- these seem to be more drama than fact.
See, if you believe the reasons you are stating then sure, be the evidence showing those reasons as valid is non-existent the application of assumption to policy is not a scientific approach particularly when it goes against years of science based recommendations saying that masks are not helpful in this context. There is absolutely no new data on this virus that even suggests that masks worn by the healthy public mitigates anything. It is all assumption and anecdote. Some words might be drama to you, the child abuse not so much, just because the kids can breath does not mean that the mask are not harming them....there is the slight depression in O2 and its effects on the brain over repeated long period, there are effects on their learning of basic social cues, the impact on their mental health, the suggestion that this is normal behavior....all for what, their is no evidence kids wearing mask at school is mitigating anything...even from an obtuse paranoid angle, it barely makes any solid sense. It is insane to demand children do this just to be able to learn again and see their friends again, and live again. The practice is going to stunt their development for nothing other than political gain and control. It is sick, and what is more sick is that the pushers of these policies claim that the kids are going to kill their grandparents if they do not go along...that is a disgusting stance and definitely psychological child abuse. Insane is being polite not dramatic. The people pushing this madness are insane and they do not understand science or are abusing science for power and control; you choose how awful they are, but they are awful.
