Hello everyone. So somehow Cooper got re-elected into office. He has completely ruined this state and continues to lock the state up with mask mandates and making small businesses struggle and close.

I grew up here and love the state but it's almost become an embarrassment. I live near the east coast which imo is still the most southern part of the state. I do not want to live another 4 years with a mask mandate. It's my opinion if wearing one makes you feel safe by all mean please wear one but the ones that do not feel like it makes any difference whatsoever want to continue our right not wearing one.

I have seen a few news articles now claiming your governor will not participate in a lockdown and drop the mask mandate. If this is true what is it like living there right now? Especially when it comes to entering business establishments like restaurants and grocery stores. Are you being forced to wear one before walking in?

I work remotely. I'm not planning on doing anything until the president is officially declared but I have a feeling things are only going to get worse if Biden is president which is making me considering moving out of our democratic run state.

Not in MS but couldn't help notice your thread while browsing. It's the same here in MN, the dems have used Covid to get stinking drunk on power and they've destroyed the state (between Covid edicts and the cop hating this year) to the point the quality of life here has been all but erased. They won't let our kids go back to school for more than a couple weeks without switching back to online learning because the media won't stop pushing the Covid panic agenda and of course the dems are all too happy to bow to their every whim.

That's no surprise here, but NC becoming such a purple state has been hard to watch. Cooper is a total Covid crusader and you'll never get back to normal with him in office. For years our dream has been to move to a mountain setting and WNC was always high on our list, but not with that guy running the state. We'll likely be headed back south at some point, though......especially if they don't get these kids back in school soon.

Yeah don't even attempt NC now. Before I was working remote we had an office downtown Raleigh and it looks like an episode of the walking dead now. Cooper has let BLM and antifa destroy the entire city. So many good businesses closed for good. Saw an an article where Asheville was going to attempt to collect reparations. Not happening. The large cities where the majority of people are from out of state are turning this state blue. I can't stand it. We voted Trump in and then we turn around and vote Cooper right back in. Makes a lot of sense.

I will be moving to a state without lock downs if I can find one. Would really like to stay in the South.

Consider Arkansas if Mississippi doesn't pan out. I believe they might have a mask mandate in some form currently, but it's still a dead red state and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is going to run for governor once Hutchinson's term is up. She'll win in a landslide.....they love the Huckabee's there.....so you can count on the governors office staying red there for a good while to come. AR has some very solid GOP representatives in Washington also, such as Tom Cotton. In addition, AR has some gorgeous natural settings as NC does. The mountains are not nearly as big, but they are still very beautiful. The NW part of the state especially is blowing up with big time progress.

At this point AR is our leading contender for relocation because of all that.

I like Mississippi, too.....especially the gulf coast area......but they get monster tornadoes, killer hurricanes and oppressive humidity. I can take one....possibly two of those, but not all three.

I know the folks in NC will be glad to hear you have decided to relocate.

I wouldn't sell my house and land here in NC if I did move since I own it. Didn't say I was relocating just yet anyway .

In my county we are required to wear a mask before entering public and commercial buildings, however it is not enforced. 99% of the people I see in Walmart, Home Depot, grocery stores, etc. - they are considerate enough to wear a mask. Those few that don't usually get a few "stink eye" stare downs. I believe social distancing is enforced in resteraunts, with spaces between tables.

I'm not one of these "shut down/wear a mask"-nazis. I don't want anything shut down, but wearing a mask and social distancing doesn't sacrifice too much - you just adapt. The purpose of the mask is to not only protect you but others. So be considerate - wear the damn mask, otherwise we don't want you here unless your plan is to socially isolate yourself.

So wear my mask to make you feel better? Sorry I don't live to accommodate you or anyone else outside my family and friends. If your mask works I shouldn't need one right? Last article I read from the CDC it said most people who had contracted the virus wore masks majority of the time. Your mask and social distancing isn't going to keep you from getting the virus. You can't control a virus. Please find me one scientific research that says these single ply cotton masks makes any difference when not washed in a hospital commercial washing machine. From a bipartisan source of course.

I'm not going to "just adapt" because it fits political agendas. Sorry I don't comply that easily.

I gave you what the rules are here, your response should be "thank you". Again, yes we have a mandate in my county to wear a mask in public and commercial establishments, other counties may be more lax. Your opinion doesn't change that and no one really cares what they are, there are tons of threads already out there in CityData on that topic, post your opinions there. Your new I see, but you know there is a politics forum here in CityData for you to vent - page down in the index for that cesspool of a forum.

Refer to below for more MS COVID information: https://msdh.ms.gov/msdhsite/_static...ween%20persons.

And my opinion - please don't move to my county, mostly based on your attitude. You aren't welcome here.

You say you're not a mask Nazi and then tell me to wear a damn mask and then tell me I'm not welcome here. Thanks? I guess?
