Here we go again, and again these bureaucrats have no ‘science’ behind them to even go forward with this policy- science has proven them wrong on ALL accounts. They are part of the ‘first’ of three groups of people in the world that Mattis Desmet addresses in his book, ‘Psychology Of Totalitarianism.’ This group accepts what ever the government tells them as true- and their beliefs are founded in cement. With that I have succumbed to letting them live their life behind a thin piece of paper, just let us live ours.

Doesn't it make simple common sense that a mask prevents one's cough or sneeze elements from reaching other people near you? I was in a store yesterday and a child about 11 years old was coughing horribly without covering mouth and touching everything, and running about. The Mother was clearly sick too. All the rest of us have to duck and take cover. I'm not sure how much wearing a mask protects you, though.
I don't think people should have to be forced to wear a mask, it should be common courtesy in tight places, but, that is a thing of the past. It is interesting that we, at large, haven't experienced flu for the last two years...masking, maybe?

Masking preventing flu, partially yes.

Isolating ourselves and avoiding contact with people, definitely.
