So I noticed everyone is wearing masks again in Florida.

Just came back from Costco where 2 weeks ago maybe 10% of the people wore masks now almost a 100%. No mandate just common people using common sense.

Most people just don't want to get sick and get others sick. The maskholes and the doomsters are a true minority. Only loud on social media. But in reality both groups are a tiny part of real Americans who are simply going about their lives.

1. I wish I was seeing that in my area.

Went to 2 stores this morning (Walmart and Giant Eagle). ...maybe 10 people were wearing masks (including me)

My county in Ohio is less than 50% vaccinated.... arrgh

9. Same here

Iím near you in western PA. The Giant Eagle had almost no one wearing masks. I felt very conspicuous wearing my N95, but I know probably half these people arenít vaccinated.

2. But, unfortunately, when one of them is the governor, who

Has power to improve conditions but is doing anything but, there is a problem.

3. Maybe things have changed since Tues., when

I went shopping, but in the store where 2 weeks ago 80% were masked, now 15% were.

4. This was a Costco in Tampa (which was packed)

 

They are still giving out samples. And it is an area with homeowners not renters so the money is flowing like water.

Still I was pleasantly surprised at the noticeable increase of mask usage.

6. Tampa is probably a more progressive area than

where I live, but I live in a mega-senior community, where almost all are vaxxed and have been pretty good about masking ó until this week. Maybe that will change again with all the negative news.

5. This is what happened back in the Spring of 2020 as well.

Long before any official mandates.

11. I was there last October for an outdoor wedding.

From the toll road to Hillsdale, I stopped at 3 different gas stations. No public restrooms in any of them. I had to do my business behind a gas station.


TFG signs all over the place. My hometown is about 40 minutes from there, same thing with the signs. I drove through a village called Pioneer and was thinking to myself perhaps some of these Hillsdaler's should have purchased house paint instead of TFG oversized flags.



I had also stopped at a Dollar General and only one person besides me was actually wearing a mask even though there was a sign stating that masks were required inside.


I hope that heck that I never have to go back there.

17. The sad thing is

I liked going to the Hillsdale County Fair as a kid. I always looked forward to it.




Now, as an adult recognizing indoctrinated residents, it's a scary area to visit.

10. The cloth and cheap surgical masks won't work with Delta if you are unvaccinated.

Not with a virus with same infection rate as chickenpox.

May slow it a little bit, but not much.

Only a two dose mRNA vaccine and masking will reduce the infection rate significantly.

It appears no one has gotten the memo.

There were a few people with masks, but that's it

No one was masked at Kwik Trip

24. Well people react to the numbers.

 

So when things get bad they bunker down, and after that passes they go back to normal.

26. No. People use common sense.

 

When vir u s numbers are high and the CDC is recommending indoor masks people wear masks. When numbers have come down and the CDC doesn't require masks people don't wear them.

Covid isn't just a virus it is an IQ test. Most people just don't want to get sick or get anyone else sick. Most people even in Florida will do the right thing without being asked.

There is nothing villainous nor virtuous in wearing a mask. It is simply a tool to help prevent illness in a time of pandemic
