I applaud my Governor for this move. Masks definitely help. The more people wear masks the less transmission and the less likely we are to have to go through another shutdown. Since we started to reopen there has been a definite spike in infections in many areas. If you want to disobey the order go ahead. I doubt there will be any serious enforcement but you will send a message loud and clear that you do not care about the health of Washington's people or economy. I do not see how anyone can be so sure that this does not help. Yes I have doubts and concerns about what is really going on. But to pretend we can actually know is irresponsible. So you think masks do not help. Prove it. If you can't prove it why not play it safe and just wear the thing. People are so damn prideful these days. We should all be more humble and stop assuming what we do not know. a reply to: headcheck

You are talking about people who might be healthy here. I fI dont have the virus why do I need to wear mask. If I am healthy why do I need to wear a mask.

Or again is it with the psyop that we are presented with, we are all a suspect?

You dont think that is related to more testing being available? because in order to reopen one of the guidleines is you have have a certain amount of testing.

this is why I was against such a prolonged shutdown. We were eventually going to have to reintegrate, people are going to mingle lets say when we come back to opening up, so yes more cases are going to happen. Its like a lose tooth, do you want to deal with the pain now or later?

We know a lot. We know it doesn't spread like what was said first...We know it does not live on surfaces for 17 hours, so now we know it can survive hardly at all etc etc... Tons of fear and hype in the initial view of it all. Now we know it spreads about the same as a normal virus. We also know the true number of asymptomatic is very low, and so people will feel sick like with a normal flu. If you run a temperature or feel sick stay home, if you are high risk stay home, very simple. If you think you might have it or have concerns you been around someone who has it then wear a mask for about 14 days if you need to go out.

ANYTHING ELSE IS VIRTUAL SIGNALLING..

As in " send a message loud and clear that you do not care about the health of Washington's people or economy"

BAM!

First Inslee put out all these pre-conditions needed to reopen the state, and now that most of the state is either in phase two of his bazar plan or in phase three, he wants to force everyone into wearing masks?

His notion that it's because of the second wave of covid, but really it's just because the Indian Reservation is now testing it's people and the numbers have gone up from that or has it? Inslee as already been caught fudging the numbers then right after he had to remove a bunch of cases from it, we suddenly have a "re-emergence" of the virus.

Inslee is more concerned about his health then the health and well being of the people in the state. Hell he hasn't done a damn thing about the insurrectionists in Seattle, but oh gawd fail to wear a mask and risk getting a misdemeanor fine over it. This from the same jackass who has a billion dollar fund for the friggen orcas but uses state "rainy day fund" to help the homeless issue. Which by the way hasn't gone away, but rather just isn't important for Inslee to deal with since grandma and grandpa won't die from that. He's a friggen joke, but since he's falling in line with SA (Socialist Alternative) top dog Sawant, he going to get his re-election due to late ballots. And guess what, no one is going to stop him since Washington State AG will prevent cases from going to court if the state is in the wrong.

This current order of his is simple to defeat, If the state is mandating that everyone must wear a mask, then the state must provide everyone with a mask. Placing a tee shirt over your mouth is not a mask. I mean if the only requirements for Inslee's masks to be valid is that it covers your mouth and nose, then everyone should start wear Guy Fawkes masks around.

I posted this in another thread, but I'll just leave this here:

There is another reason for the desire for people to wear masks. It makes it easier psychologically to kill a person if you don't physically see them as a whole person. The mask hides many of the features that registers as a face to another person, so shooting a mask wearing member of the public does less psychological damage to the shooter, than it would if a person was told to shoot a person not wearing a mask.

This kind of points to the fragile mind set of the other sides "soldiers" or whatever you want to call them, but we've seen them in videos running away when confronted by someone not putting up with their crap. Hell, there are videos of these people being armed and freeze up when another person runs up to them with real intent (ie the Seattle rioter that handed over the looted police rifle)


Think about it.

Anybody have an efficacy test on silk scarfs, cotton face garments, or non medical masks?

I'd say comfortably at least a quarter to a third of people I see "wearing" masks are "wearing" them incorrectly, around their neck, around their chin, hanging off their ear. What is the damn point??
I stand by my opinion, it should be optional for the individual. They know damn well people are going to go against this, it's all for show. Full on virtue signaling, dictionary definition of.

Why do you need that, just wear a Guy Fawkes mask. It meets the requirements.

Masks don't work unless everyone wears them.

If it is mandated and you choose not to wear it,
I hope you get fined for being dumb.

The ignorance in this pandemic is mind-blowing.

Wear a mask or everything will shut down again, and then what?

A mask only works if you actually have it and are contagious...just saying...

They are using masks as a form of mind control. If they can control your body, they can control your mind. The perpetual worry of COVID-19 is a means of imprisonment. They want to keep people in a constant state of worry, agitation, and fear.

Which is why everyone needs to do it to stop it from spreading.

You don't know if you have it or not.
Wear the mask and it will not matter.

Don't wear the mask, and potentially spread it to all your friends.

The only way to stop shut downs is for everyone to comply and help it stop spreading.
You do more damage in the long run not following these kinds of mandates.

If your friends get it then is that bad? I would say wear your mask if you visit grandma....

Do you think not wearing a mask will overwhelm the system as we now know it will not?

Palm Beach mandated it as well. The citizens had a fit although I'm confused. One ranted about masks killing people and citizens arrests, another was talking about they are trying to do away with God's beautiful breathing machines.

It's all over the place.
Yes it's CNN but it's just a video.

Well, I have already lost an uncle, and I have a cousin that lost his sense of smell when he got it months ago when my uncle died, and the sense of smell still has not returned although he recovered.

If nothing else, save your sense of smell for flowers and cheap perfume.

I've been curious about this myself, the mask issue. And with three months of nothing to do but look things up, found out that there's no science whatsoever that masks prevent the spread of viruses.

Here's a well-written a well-sourced article that says even n-95 masks don't prevent the spread of a virus in any way:

off-guardian.org...

From the article:



No study, and there have been many, has been able to establish any advantage of wearing a mask or respirator, with viral respiratory diseases. This means that, even in controlled professional health-care settings, any benefit is too small to be detected by science, and that other factors must be overwhelmingly more important.


It's not a study, the author reviews other studies and summarizes them. You can link to his sources from the link I provided to double check his math.
