    Texas is lifting its mask mandate

    Obviously, Covid is still around. Given your states current situation, if masks were no longer required, would you still wear one?

    My governor has left the mask decision up to the individual counties. My county lifted the mask order this past week. I will continue to wear a mask when I go indoors. I just don't think that this is over and expect it to be 6-8 more months before most get vaccinated and we have some herd immunity here in the US. Haven't past pandemics lasted roughly two years?

    <--------not a panicel, but I wear a mask indoors for others even though I don't feel the typical mask does much.

    I don't wear a mask, but have put one on about a dozen times out of compliance. I no longer put one on unless it's absolutely required, which in my county no longer is.

    I only wear one if I go in a store that asks people to wear one.

    I really hope other Political leaders take note of this and follow suit.

    We've been locked down for a year now with mask mandates in place and it's enough already.

    And hell no I would never wear a mask unless forced. But we've been forced.

    Unfortunately I do not see an end to the BS here. Cases are falling steadily yet somehow they are predicting doom and gloom and an astronomical increase in cases in the next few weeks, and are using that to keep us locked down.

    My state never required them, except I think in restaurants while not at your table. Far as I can tell.

    I mostly wear one when indoors because most places ask that you do.

    I respect private property Rights, and it's so easy to do. Fortunately I'm not an obese fat fuk who suffocates from wearing a mask while walking through Walmart (I don't even need a scooter!)

    That's because Spring Break is coming up. If a business that I frequent requires a mask, then I'll wear one according to their rules.

    Yeah because the vaccine rollout is slow and only 1 of the 3 of us have 2 shots.
    I want that Moderna 95% peace of mind b4 I let up and that looks like July if my guess is correct.

    Mask comes off where I'm not required to wear one.

    I'll wear one in certain situations for awhile, like waiting in line at the Dollar General. Honestly l kind of want to wear one around DG Customers for the rest of my life.

    Can't wait to lift without a mask.

    Looks like sleepy Joe will have us (USA) all vaccinated by the summer, I scheduled a vacation for the 4th of July in a big public setting, can't wait to see people again.

    It's time to open up 100% with a "proceed at your own risk" approach....

    if you have a problem with it stay home..

    everything is in place for people who either haven't had covid or the vaccine to continue to live in fear while the rest of us get back to living normal again.

    In England, I wear one to be in compliance when entering shops and public transport, but just to walk about in public I wouldn't consider it (unless some weird circumstances meant I was stuck unavoidably close to a bunch coughing people).

    Since I'm strictly methodical about hand sanitizing (plus sanitizing handles of shopping carts, baskets, etc) + nearly 1/3 of UK is vaccinated proportion rising + test confirmed that 1/15 have had it but speculated 1/7 have actually had it. I'd say being sensible and careful the risk here is low.

    We'll see when or if the Brazil variant takes hold and I'll change my opinion. Until then no unnecessary mask wearing from me, and that's from someone who counts as "pro mask".
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    The mask isn't a big deal, plus it has allowed me to go long periods of time without trimming the nose hair.

    Same here.

    The mask mandate impacts me very minimally though as I work from home and have a home gym. I just think the Governor (MN) has no real rhyme or reason to when he chooses to "open" and "close" things. He took a lot of heat for the schools, so no he's left it up to the individual districts (which seems pretty crazy IMO). We have districts bordering each other that are full-time 5 days and then 100% distance learning.

    This is America. They are fat and out of shape and a mask practically makes them feel like they need a Walmart electric cart to get around, so they whine

    I get vaccinated next Saturday (the JJ one) but will likely wear a mask whenever in close spaces now that its more acceptable. I'll definitely wear one during flu season.

    I will continue to wear one indoors for awhile longer and probably continue through flu season as well. Never really supported the idea of federal or statewide mandates but was ok with the idea of a city or county mandate.

    I still don’t understand how the DHS flat out admitted that masks ruined their facial recognition surveillance state, and all the “Fck” the government” and “everything I don’t like is tyranny” types I see on my Twitter timeline didn’t fall over themselves to mask up in a world full of cameras for some measure of public privacy.

    Some interesting comments

    I am of a similar mindset to Gregg, I believe the mask helps mitigate the spread of the virus. If I can possibly stop the spread in anyway by wearing a mask I will. It's no big deal to me and really no inconvenience. I think as we open up more cases will pop up and mask use may help with this.


    Along the lines of Jtbny's & 7's comments, I have a friend who told me yesterday that she will be wearing one forever. She is a single Lady that lives off grid about 50 miles from the nearest town. She only makes about 20 trips to town annually but always manages to catch a flu and or a cold. This year nothing. She said wearing a mask and being more proactive with hand sanitization is a minor inconvenience compared to running a homestead while being sick. That makes total sense to me.


    If Masks help as much as the experts say or even a smidgen, I think masks should be the last line of defense to go during the opening up process, apparently officials don't see it this way.

    Curiosity thing here...those who say they don't mind, or "will when I go out" or "still will wear one"===do you wear one now all day? I mean, 11-13 hrs, literally all day, every minute, no taking it off, not just when required. ?

    I heard a statistic that the average citizen wears one a whole 4.2 hrs per day.

    I wear one indoors when I am in public spaces not at home.

    When my son plays soccer in state he is required to wear a mask while playing. 4 practices a week 2 hours a day and 1-4 games most weekends. He’s been doing it since July and has had no problem with it.
