    It's pointless.. Just going to gradually get worse. We are too selfish and entitled to beat this. Chin strappers and covidiots everywhere I look. Even my family members are idiots and don't take this seriously

    People just don't care, that's all it comes down to. Wear a mask, don't wear a mask, what's the difference. Mask wearing is only prolonging the inevitable and our precautions are just a slow tear of the week long band-aid over your scar. Even if we had a virus like the one in contagion which killed 25% of the population, people would still take their chances. We need a full-on I Am Legend 95% mortality and 4.5% zombie rate for people to give a shit. It's not the people on Beyond we need to be worried about, I think 99% wear masks and do that other stuff, it's the general population. I'm still hearing of huge 200+ weddings and family gatherings here in rural Sask, people like them just don't care. This will never be contained to the levels government wants without much, much stricter measures.

    It was pointless regardless of peoples mental acuity(other than Trudeau who refused to take action when there was still time for containment). It has been past the point of containment for many many months now. Selfish is an interesting word to use in regards to people who are simply living life based on the facts they have access to. I would argue it is quite a bit more selfish to expect the entire world to potentially sacrifice their livelihoods for the sake of acknowledging yours and others irrational fears. The great thing about a free country, is you're free to stay home if you don't think it is safe to go outside. But the selfish and fearful aren't willing to be inconvenienced for their own choices unless everyone else is forced to be inconvenienced with them.

    It really doesn't matter what your perception about masks are. Your inner Karen is expecting people to do something just for you because you're special. That's selfish.

    But no mention of sports teams. I mean in beer league hockey it's 11 guys a side plus refs and a time keeper, that totally adds up to 15 people. More mixed messages to throw out there...again

    jesus christ, if Kenney came and farted in your face, would you be happy and ask for more? if wearing a mask is so hard for you, stay the fuck home, you live in a civilized world, act like a decent human being and stop being so fucking self absorbed to think that you're better than everyone else that want society to continue on by following one simple and temporary rule

    here's a fucking story for you

    My wife is a nurse, one of her coworkers tested positive for covid, not a single coworker or patient contracted covid... why? because the person who contracted covid wore a fucking mask and took precautions, my wife also due to the working relationship with this person was in close contact multiple times per day for extended periods of time and my wife is covid free

    Get your head out of your ass and act like a grown up, you sound like a 2 year old throwing a tantrum every time you bitch and complain that masks are infringing on your 'freedoms'

    People are stinky. Masks help with that.
    A condition causes me to chew with my mouth open. Masks help with that.
    I am pro-masks.

    Do they not wear medical-grade masks at work? If the general public all wore those from the beginning, if we had enough for everyone, this virus would be long gone by now. I don't believe the cloths people are wearing now will prevent spread long-term. What's the reduction rate down to with masks, 5%? So 5/100 people in a gathering will get infected, then those 5 will give it to someone else etc etc. I wear a mask but I don't believe that's the solution, nor will waiting for a miracle vaccine. This is something we will have to live with for a long time.

    Anecdotal evidence, meet anecdotal evidence

    The agency changed the definition after a report from Vermont of a corrections officer who became infected after several brief interactions with coronavirus-positive inmates -- none of them lasting 15 minutes, but adding up over time.
    The corrections officer never spent much time with any particular inmate, but opened and closed cell doors, collected soiled linen, opened doors to shower and recreation rooms for inmates, conducted health checks and dispensed medication, Julia Pringle, a CDC officer working with the Vermont Department of Health, and colleagues reported.
    The six inmates had no symptoms and had traveled from out-of-state facilities while they were awaiting coronavirus test results, Pringle's team reported in the CDC's weekly report, the MMWR.
    His 22 short encounters added up to about 17 minutes of total exposure, the team calculated.
    The data suggests at least one of the six inmates transmitted the virus to the officer during one of these brief encounters. The six inmates wore microfiber cloth masks for some, but not all interactions with the officer. "During all interactions, the correctional officer wore a microfiber cloth mask, gown, and eye protection (goggles)," the team wrote.

    By these new measures, I donít see how most businesses can stay open.

    The message the entire time has been masks don't protect the wearer, they help reduce the wearer (if positive) from spreading it to others. In your own quote it says the inmates wore masks for some but not all interactions with the officer. Positive inmmate not wearing a mask sometimes, officer gets sick.

    Current policy would indicate that there are many scenarios where only 1 party has to be masked at best. If 6 feet isn’t enough space, and 15 minutes within 24 hours is enough to spread, I don’t see how anything short of lockdown will work feasibly.
