Nope you wont hear a thing about that.. it's the bars and restaurants duh! Why would you think that 1000s of people practically on top of each other could possibly be the problem.And I’m sure the protests didn’t help slow down the spread but the news won’t mention that
Of course! It's all his fault.They blame Trump,duh.
Here's the studies that show they help:Information from the same people that told us wearing masks would stop the spread ?
That's all nice,yet here we are shutting down again after following the rules.I'm ready to find somebody to infect me just to be done with it.Here's the studies that show they help:

Results A total of 21 studies met our inclusion criteria. Meta-analyses suggest that mask use provided a significant protective effect (OR = 0.35 and 95% CI = 0.24–0.51). Use of masks by healthcare workers (HCWs) and non-healthcare workers (Non-HCWs) can reduce the risk of respiratory virus infection by 80% (OR = 0.20, 95% CI = 0.11–0.37) and 47% (OR = 0.53, 95% CI = 0.36–0.79). The protective effect of wearing masks in Asia (OR = 0.31) appeared to be higher than that of Western countries (OR = 0.45). Masks had a protective effect against influenza viruses (OR = 0.55), SARS (OR = 0.26), and SARS-CoV-2 (OR = 0.04). In the subgroups based on different study designs, protective effects of wearing mask were significant in cluster randomized trials and observational studies.
Conclusions This study adds additional evidence of the enhanced protective value of masks, we stress that the use masks serve as an adjunctive method regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

Results A total of 19 randomised controlled trials were included in this study – 8 in community settings, 6 in healthcare settings and 5 as source control. Most of these randomised controlled trials used different interventions and outcome measures. In the community, masks appeared to be effective with and without hand hygiene, and both together are more protective. Randomised controlled trials in health care workers showed that respirators, if worn continually during a shift, were effective but not if worn intermittently. Medical masks were not effective, and cloth masks even less effective. When used by sick patients randomised controlled trials suggested protection of well contacts.
Conclusion The study suggests that community mask use by well people could be beneficial, particularly for COVID-19, where transmission may be pre-symptomatic. The studies of masks as source control also suggest a benefit, and may be important during the COVID-19 pandemic in universal community face mask use as well as in health care settings. Trials in healthcare workers support the use of respirators continuously during a shift. This may prevent health worker infections and deaths from COVID-19, as aerosolisation in the hospital setting has been documented.
As much as I'd like to say we were following the rules we aren't. Seen way too many people having BBQs with multiple families, etc. FL, AZ and TX were reopening and their numbers are spiking hard. I get it that people are tired of being cooped up but this isn't going away quickly and without pain to everyone involved.That's all nice,yet here we are shutting down again after following the rules.I'm ready to find somebody to infect me just to be done with it.
No shit. What the hell do you want the guy to do? People are not following orders. Is it that hard folks? I would love to see what a Republican governor would do in the case. I bet the same thing! This political bashing right off the top is old.While bashing libs is definitely a BDOutdoors pastime, it would be awesome if people simply complied with common sense health precautions to keep the infection rate down.
