according to studies about 51% of people nationwide always wear a mask in public

All i know is I live in an large inner city with mostly African Americans and the grocery store is always very crowded and 75% of people do not have a mask on including almost every store worker.

Its ridiculous. We're gonna have to reclose everything and suffer job less and economic downturn without even trying to prevent spread with mask use.

If it was between wearing a mask and shutting down everything again, I would choose wear a mask

maybe wearing a mask doesn't really help, but we should at least give it a try before shutting everything down again.

also even if it wont help from a physical standpoint (even though it certainly does) . it may help from a psychological standpoint.

I personally think the CDC blew it by recommending cloth masks. Asian countries wear surgical masks. They're much more comfortable then cloth masks because theyre thinner and theyre all white which makes them more homogeneous so you don't stand out as much. wearing a cloth mask is akward and makes it hard to breath. and you stand out more wearing one because most cloth masks are all different.

Surgical masks have value, because people are more likely to wear them because they're more breathable and more homogeneous.

Disposable surgical masks are the way to go.
I think our frontline workers should have stockpiled enough by now that its okay to wear surgical masks.

If the CDC reccomended wearing cheap disposable surgical masks from day one. And the federal government mass produced cheap surgical masks and made them more available on the market you'd see more mask use.

When you see the Tokyo subway everyone is wearing a surgical mask,,,,, that seems a lot more likely to happen in the U.S. then everyone wearing some homemade cloth mask that all look different.

People don't want to have to stand out wearing a mask. And if everyone was wearing surgical masks they wouldn't stand out as much , plus they're much more comfortable to wear then cloth masks.

surgical masks are sooooooo much less hot and more comfortable then any cloth masks.

The CDC blew it by shaming surgical mask use.

Even if you had a surgical mask, you chose to wear a cloth one, or had to find a cloth one, because the CDC said : "Dont wear surgical masks"

If people are willing to wear masks you should support them, You shouldn't shame them if they only have surgical masks or want to wear surgical masks.

The CDC blew any hopes of united mask wearing participation by shaming wearing surgical masks and recommending
awkward and hot homemade masks.

Can you picture people in Tokyo wearing homemade cloth masks hahahaahahah thats honestly hilarious.
If the Japanese shamed wearing surgical masks like the CDC did. people in Japan probably wouldn't wear masks either bc homemade cloth masks are awkward and you stand out like a sore thumb wearing one.

How about the CDC supports wearing surgical masks so we can actually breathe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A surgical mask is a million times thinner and more comfortable.

but thanks to the CDC , if you wear a surgical mask, you look like a frontline killer who stole a precious PEP from the frontline..............pathetic.....[/quote]
