I already have glasses. I have felt a bit grossed out thinking about sneezing into a mask and still wearing it on my mouth...

I ordered a face shield and that's different from a mask but still is concerned a face covering.
yes well thats why you wash it after or have a new one.
if you do happen to be sneezing and coughing a lot dont go out and spread it hey. Drink plenty of hot fluids.

I say other because if you are in a state or local area not being hit as hard and you are not required then do what you want.

If it is mandated then wear it but with anything we are seeing some states use mandates to oppress the 1st Amendment while still allowing casinos and riots to have mass gatherings. The church gets shut down but the heathens can still dabble in the sins of greed and violence.

At that point, the church must stand it's ground and legally fight the system. Churches was really compliant at the beginning until some states saw it as an opportunity to attack those of faith.

After seeing the hypocrisy, double standards, and the outrageous issues with the data, I for one now see COVID as the lesser threat. Most of us law abiding citizens could see the common sense in the coming virus and was willing to work with out local and federal government.

But many now see the civil unrest and tyrannical mayors, judges, members of Congress, and political candidates as the greatest threat.

Sorry not sorry. I'm over Covid as the data is slowly fixing the false numbers, we are seeing this virus is definitely not the major threat at the moment. More will die from the Marxist agenda if we do not take a stand against this evil.

before doctors knew how to disinfect and wash their hands, a lot of pregnant women died in childbirth because they would infect the women by touching them without washing their hands. They would be touching their cervical area not knowing they were spreading infection.

aside from masks, wash your hands with hot soapy water reguarly! That is why its advise to use hand sanitiser if you cant. do this. Most workplaces will provide them.

@Nehemiah6 , I would like things to return to normal. I have wondered myself if this could be a precursor to the end times and mark of the beast and I don't really know.

I am not as comfortable wearing masks and I decided to order a face shield which should be more comfortable with breathing, easier to clean, and it does not hide one's identity.

I keep wondering why people buy "Made in China" face masks...???
And - an even more important question - why can you not find a face mask anywhere that is not made in China?

(I have not seen one yet - not even one. Every single face mask that I have seen [for sale to the public] is made in China.)

I wear a face shield because they do the same job as a mask but are more comfortable
also others can see your whole face. If you cant get one then use a mask

Because no one else as far as I know are producing them. If anyone feels nervous about
wearing a Chinese one you dont need to be a genious to make your own.

It is the principle of the thing that I am trying to make a point about.

I have one. A lady friend made it for me. I wear it when necessary.

I wear a mask at the store for the selfish reason that I am hoping I might dodge that 15% chance a virus will get through. 85% protection is way better than none. I just need to remember to take the face shield. That might be the thing that saves me. I will never know. I am trying to go to the store only once a month.

People are behaving and coming up with wild conspiracy theories, trying to connect dots on things as if there has never been a viral outbreak before in the history of mankind.

There are no "wild conspiracy theories"right now. There are actual conspiracies which no one is addressing. But whenever people refuse to acknowledge conspiracies they become virtual co-conspirators. So let's look at some actual conspiracies since 2016.

1. Is there hard evidence that there was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY against Donald Trump and his associates so that a legally elected President would be "taken down" -- possibly even assassinated? Absolutely. Take the time to check it out from CONSERVATIVE news sources such as Breitbart News and a dozen others. The DOJ is still dithering around instead of prosecuting the traitors.

2. Is there hard evidence that the Communist bosses of China deliberately withheld critical information regarding the Wuhan virus, and in fact allowed Chinese nationals as well as Chinese visitors to China to travel and spread the virus all around the world? Absolutely, and once again check out credible CONSERVATIVE news sources (since the mainstream media are bought and paid for by China). This too was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY.

3. Is there hard evidence that the Chinese government, the Wuhan laboratories, the WHO, the Imperial College, IHME, CDC, NIH, FDA, Gilead Sciences, Redfield, Fauci, Birx etc. conspired together to falsify information about the nature of corona virus, the death rates from infection, and preventative measures? Absolutely. Check it out if your care to. This too was a CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY.

4. Is there hard evidence that those who should have made the hydroxychloroquine package freely available deliberately attacked this treatment, and prevented people at risk from a cheap and effective way to fight COVID-19? A respected medical doctor has exposed this unethical and criminal conspiracy which is meant to keep COVID-19 deaths at a high level. Other doctors have joined in to expose fraudulent Fauci and his shenanigans.

If you missed what has happened recently to expose this CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY by qualified medical professionals, it is time for you (and others) to get your heads out of the sand, since hundreds of thousands have died unnecessarily because a virtual ban was placed on HCQ by the FDA, CDC, NIH, and many other so-called medical *experts* who violated their Hippocratic Oath so that a few key people could make billions of dollars from Remdesivir and promote a vaccine which may not even be very effective (probably positively dangerous). And that is not all. Death threats have been issued against doctors who recommended HCQ.

5. Is there a current conspiracy to turn America -- a democratic Republic -- into a totalitarian Socialist/Communist/Marxist state? Check it out for yourself. BLM AND Antifa have been unleashed at this particular time to promote anarchy and chaos, while they destroy America by every possible means. These people have been trained in Communist tactics and are following the pattern of the Bolshevik Revolution.

Looks like we have at least one co-conspirator on board, who disagrees with the truth. It is shocking that absolutely no one is doing anything about this batch of conspiracies.

Masks are not to protect you from the public. They are to protect the public from you. If you don't want to wear a mask, make sure that you test negative for covid19 and test frequently.
