    Coughs or sneezes, yes. That's why we cover those.

    The risk from just breathing, however, is very low.

    And, thankfully, we have laws to protect us from people like you. So wear your mask.

    I disagree with them and you! Masks are indeed effective! It is why they have been part of my PPE articles while transporting infectious patients for longer than I have been an EMT.

    I will not comply with laws that are unconstitutional and not passed by the legislature. We live in a republic not a dictatorship.

    That said, I find it fascinating how none of the pro-mask people engage with any of the dozen articles I linked to. It's almost like you don't want your world come crashing down when you find out your savior mask is worthless.

    Then do so to your own or someone you love's peril!

    I don't need to read them to know it's bunk! I am in the medical field. I know how much masks save people. It's a shame people like you try to discredit them. It's like you want people to die!

    All of the articles are scholarly medical articles written by doctors. British Journal of Medicine, New England Journal of Medicine and other scholarly publications.

    Yes, I know. Doesn't change my stance. I know that masks are great protection. I am sorry that a little piece of cloth meant to keep you safe is such a hassle for you.

    You risk your life and the lives of the innocents around you, hopefully, you aren't in Florida!

    Your faith is in cloth not science it seems.

    No, my faith is in the science that has shown them to be effective! Along with knowledge as an EMT that masks keep you safe.

    I will not go against that.

    Then we should all be wearing gas masks with the appropriate filters for the virus.

    Can the government legally force you to wear a mask?
    The answer is “yes.” In a pandemic, governments have the authority to do a lot of things that would otherwise be questionable.

    You do realize that the Spanish flu did not originate in Spain, right?

    Surely it is the people refusing to wear masks who should be staying at home - after all they are the ones most at risk of spreading disease.

    I don't think the thousands of people who died from it cared all that much where the disease came from.

    Nothing unconstitutional about ordering masks be worn during a pandemic.

    The error in your post has already been pointed out.

    The Wearing of Masks in public places actually INCREASES personal Freedom by INCREASING the likelihood you will remain totally anonymous in Public, unrecognizable to the Big Government Cameras with Face recognition software that are literally EVERYWHERE you go, tracking your every move already... If the Deep State believed masks would increase their control over the populace they couldn't be more wrong, and are far more stupid than I thought.

    I ALWAYS Mask up now everywhere i go. I couldn't be more pleased with the Mask requirement. It has set personal liberty FORWARD, and put a huge roadblock in the way of Big Government control.
    Heck, you can even walk into the lobby of a Bank with a mask on now and no one bats an eye... I never though I'd see the day we would be so very liberated and free that we could do something like wear a full face mask while banking... Its a huge Victory for Personal Liberty.

    It's nobody's business (especially Government) to know where you are going, what you are doing and who you are with.
    The Mass Wearing of Masks is a "Freedom Catalyst" for our society.

    Public Anonymity = FREEDOM
    Wear the Mask = Stay Anonymous = Stay FREE.

    Agreed, but people should check their facts when they say where it was from.
