    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    What is so surreal to me right now is that in Indiana sports teams are practicing. Big difference is that high schools don't have the $ to test like college and football teams. I expect there will be a ripple effect and if college football is not a go, high school football will follow.

    I’d bet money football at least in college is gone. And I think we lose the non conference slate of basketball. If not the whole season.

    That's what gets to me......people who wants things to return (like sports) but don't care about case spikes or wearing masks. The bottom line is that increased case numbers could very well remove some of the things that opened up or what we want to open up.

    I’ve always said if you are opposed to masks I sure hope if you are having surgery you ask the surgeons to not bother with them. I mean after all they should be comfortable since the mask doesn’t do anything.

    Completely understand. I am with you. My biggest disappointment in the current state of America is everything is a political issue. Something as simple as wearing a mask for the betterment of a whole is the ultimate kick in the nuts for some, or the ultimate weapon for others. It’s a ******* mask meant to help. Like I said early on they won’t block all, but with that, social distancing, and good personal hygiene we wouldn’t have ******* threads up wondering if we are even going to have a season. It’s not a ******* political argument. It’s a simple ******* humanitarian discussion. In the military Aloha, I bet that heavy equipment gets pretty uncomfortable in the middle of a desert. I doubt anyone is arguing with why you need to wear yours, or a firefighter needs to wear their heavy gear in a fire, or a police officer wears their vest. I just don’t get why it’s so ******* hard. Hope you get to enjoy abroad.

    Nurses etc in hospitals will put on masks too. There's a reason.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love this country and am an American to my core. I signed my life over to this country and would do it again if needed. With that, as soon as I finish this program, I’ll be looking for employment back overseas or in an area that respects the collective whole. It’s truly amazing to see and feel the difference.

    Go hang with the 10% who are wearing them. Me thinks compliance is much higher than 10% though.

    We are a nation of toddlers. Now granted my toddler is now asking to wear a mask so I might be giving our population too much credit.

    Their business, their rules. No problem with that. (But it's kind of hard to eat with a mask on :) ) As far as everyone on board, I think you're generally seeing the vast majority comply with mask wearing. The news reports want to gin up controversy so they always get the picture of the one dude without a mask. Kind of like heading to the trailer park after a storm to show the "damage."

    So for the anti maskers If you knew there was a 100% chance that wearing a mask would save a life other than your own. Would you do it? What if it were 50%? 25%? What about 1? What if there was a 1% chance that you are killing somebody by not wearing a mask?

    Agreed. Our lack of empathy is alarming. It’s honestly just sad more than anything. It really shouldn’t surprise me with people, but it does. Down here in Florida a person with political interests tried suing over mandatory masks. That one got thrown out real quick. Like how f’ed up do we have to be to sue over something like that? How hard is it to wear a ******* mask? Even if you don’t agree with it at worst you are out the inconvenience of wearing a mask. At best you can save someone’s life, potentially someone you love. Like I don’t get the huge deal. For years if you travel abroad and you see an Asian person they are wearing a mask. There is a reason why. They have things like this quite a bit. I trust they know more than Facebook. It’s just ******* sad and pathetic.

    Just to confirm, you would be okay with stores and restaurants turning away people who refuse to wear a mask? And to be fair, people live in highly populated cities, or work in retail, grocery stores, barber shops or about 50% of all available US jobs. Avoidance can be very difficult. Sometimes you need everyone on board to stop something from spreading.

    Yeah its the same in Cape Coral. Well Walmart not so much, but your Publix, Target, etc. it’s pretty much everyone. Not meant to be a crack at Walmart just the way it is down here. Most places refuse service if you don’t wear one.

    The people making those recommendations know what they're talking about, it's kind of their job. I don't get it. Canada must feel like they live in the apartment above a meth lab. Maybe that's the plan, make the virus feel this country is so hopelessly screwed that it doesn't need to help and just leaves.

    Assuming everything you are saying is true. It’s 100% not but how are people supposed to get food avoid people without masks if 90% of people aren’t wearing masks?

    As much as Florida has well-deserved reputation for stupid people, around me in West Palm Beach mask wearing has become pretty universal.

    Not true at all. Just wash your hands and don't touch your face. Besides, CDC says that surface contact isn't the main way the infection is transmitted. Thems are facts for you.

    Yeah I don’t get it. Don’t get me wrong I don’t like it. But I’d rather be mildly inconvenienced than help spread a pandemic

    I don’t watch the news often because the majority of news just shows our collective stupidity. However, it was on yesterday while I was working on a research project. They were showing the fair in Indy with a comment about masks being mandatory. There might have been a handful of people wearing a mask while 90+% were just wondering around without a mask. Why?! Is it that cumbersome to place cloth over your mouth and nose? ****!!!! We’re doomed. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    You would also have to avoid everything they have breathed on. But don’t let facts get in the way
