When do the mask benefits kick in?

I’m still wearing my N95 but...2200+ cases, 21% positive rate, 23 deaths, and 60+ more in the hospitals reported today after 2 1/2 to 3 weeks of masks in most major SC cities.

Most of the experts seem to think 3-4 weeks

When people stop being stupid

Here is why I am adamant that people are stupid, you are free to disagree . On 6/19 we had 6 Covid patients in the hospital, today we have 64. Our ICU is filled, they opened up 8 more rooms as makeshift ICU's. Out of those patients in ICU 50% are on ventilators. We have no room at the inn for any surgeries, to include heart surgery. Why? Because people are frigging stupid.


I watch people refuse free masks daily, I watch them gather in groups not wearing masks. I have lost the ability to even sympathize with them as I can only shake my head and steer clear. I frigging no longer care what their reasons are for not wearing masks, I have come to the conclusion that they have willfully chosen to be stupid after all that has been written and said, discounting the Donald's dookie. If one choses to follow a fool then one gets a fools consequences.

Past 3 days our positivity rate has been right at 50%. When out only about 1/2 are wearing masks and bars/restaurants are packed.


So are the mask ordinances a waste of time if

they aren’t gonna enforce them? Maybe McMaster should threaten to shut things down again if people don’t wear them.

Unfortunately, I think we are on the road to that scenario

I do not care, stupid should hurt, like a lot. Seems Muricans are unable to follow recommendations so shut the shyte down. If we as a people are too frigging stupid then the govt. has to step in to force it on us .


Now outside of a few white folks almost all the black folks have been masked up when I go to stores. Gotta give them a shout out for being good citizens.


I care

My daughter has to risk her health treating these morons everyday. She didn’t sign up for this. Regular ICU was tough enough.

When I said I do not care I was referring to shutting down again

I can not be expected to differentiate the minor nuances in their handles. Instead I just dismiss it as some crazy person talking to themselves.

Well, I would beg to differ.


Had to go to a Walmart yesterday, N95'd and gloved up cause

that was my Walmart routine pre-Covid.

They had only one entrance open, to enforce the mask rules. They weren't enforcing the mask rules and simply shut down another entry/exit to ensure everyone would pass through the same corridor. Seems counterproductive, but I'm no epidemiologist.

corporate, but on a local level, it's probably really inconsistent on how it's actually managed.


Anything like that in a Walmart is definitely from corporate

But this has been a practice at Lowe's and Home Depots as well. It's like they don't really think about the effects of their decisions. It's more about theater than actually preventing or keeping anyone safe IMO.

Yeah, sure...I guess what I mean is that...

It's easy to put a sign on a door and close it because corporate said to. It's another thing for a floor manager to take an employee and station them to do a task. It takes some effort on the part of the local employees.


Agreed. And Walmart greeters simply aren't paid enough to

become bouncers when angry rednecks and antivaxxers refuse to take the free mask at the door.

Local grocery store did the same thing but worse

they were suppose to have a entrance and an exit. They just shut down one entrance/exit so everybody had to bump shoulders going through the other one.

Then they only had one register open so the line is down the isle with people in line 6 foot apart. then people trying to get by bumping into the 6ft apart people.

Idiots.

It will take a month or two after the masses all start wearing them. That's according to Fauci. After that we have to get those infected and those close to them who end up infected to cycle out and for the masses to start wearing them. Right now we are at square 1. We really havent gone all in as a nation yet.

On July 11 a girl less than 5 years old died from Covid-19 in Chester County, SC.

It's very rare for children that age die of this virus, but it does happen. 2 teens in Florida last month.

So, according to the CDC 40% of the identified cases in the last month are asymptomatic. They don't know they have it but they still carry it and infect others.

I haven't been tested so I wear a mask because I don't want to hurt anyone.
I don't want to catch it and I don't want to give it.

I'm concerned with me. Everyone else should be concerned with themselves. If I didn't want to wear a mask I wouldn't wear one. I do because even with keeping away from people I can still go out without freaking out.
