But, but, but we have doctors who do wear a mask yet still catch it and die. So what good does the mask do? I never wear a mask, attend birthday party, get together with friends etc and have to catch the virus. I even had contact tracer call me once because supposedly i was with someone that got sick and still my family is not sick. That is the reason why we refuse to wear a mask until such time as feel it's too danger to go without a mask after which time we will put them on. Yes we have mask but we prefer while we outside even around people not wear a mask. We will put them in a business only if we absolutely have when we are being told that we will not be served without a mask.

It's a three-part preventive measure: face masks, social distancing, hand washing. You can't do only one and still be safe. Pretty obvious, and it's been stated by medical personnel over and over.

We do have doctors and nurses and firefighters and grocery workers that get sick. It's hard to say why they did because we didn't observe their behavior. I still think a mask will offer some protection but the biggest deterrent is to not touch your face until you thoroughly wash your hands. People touch their face all the time without even knowing they're doing it.

If you and your loved ones have succeeded in not contracting the virus, I suspect it's due to your hygiene habits. Or maybe you're just the luckiest people on the face of the earth ...

I always washed my hands, something i been taught from young age by my parents. I would think most people wash their hands. As for the rest of your statement, i been violating both of them and yet my family, my friends and all of my relatives are all healthy without following the other 2 preventive measures. How do you explain that?

Not down here. They will put a big orange sticker on your window you can't easily get off and it reads you've been put into the system, next time a fine. They are also lying to the local businesses saying the forest is closed because if you get hurt no one can show up because of the fires way up north. Well, let's see. It's at first Sheriff, then search and rescue that shows for stupid trail injuries etc. I know search and rescue quite well down here.

These are all lies.

Pretty obvious, but it bears repeating.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged Monday (10/5) that the coronavirus can spread through microscopic respiratory particles known as aerosols that float in the air for minutes or even hours before being inhaled.

On its website, the CDC said that even people who followed social distancing guidelines have been infected through this type of transmission — and added a warning against frequenting crowded, poorly ventilated indoor spaces.

So what is the solution? Should we all lock our self at home for the next 3 years? Oh wait that likely would not help either as CDC posted another article that said having Covid do not mean you can't get it again. Which means vaccine is also useless?
