    Except, having the virus doesn't necessarily make you immune to another infection either:

    I worked for local governments as an employee or consultant for many years. They tend to have one key thing in common: political cowardice. Some call it pragmatism.

    It saddens me to say this but with leadership like this Bailey character, the US will never get this virus under control.

    It maybe that people not being as safe and respectful of others is the larger problem. Maybe the anti-mask people think that mask wearing, careful, respectful are stupid?
    Even if one doesn’t believe in any of this- just move on..... and let the people trying alone.

    Refusing to wear a mask is just part of it. Some businesses think they'll lose revenue if they enforce mask requirements. In addition, for those that are anti-mask, they tend to ignore the minimum spacing guideline.

    In my little town, two county-seat lawyers (a husband & wife) circulated a petition against any local ordinance enforcing masks or the minimum spacing guidelines in public spaces.

    We have a few ant-maskers in our country but the fact is that retailers will not allow you into their premises without shoes, a shirt or a mask.

    Despite this, the odd wedding and funeral gatherings as well as gym and bar patrons are possibly the cause of the recent spike in our COVID cases (which fortunately have resulted in only a few regions of our province having restrictions reimposed).

    I see too many people who don't even bother to include their nose in their mask fitment. Antisocial, or stupid?

    I asked someone yesterday about their spitting....... The reply was “it’s a habit”. I did some ‘splaining....hope it sinks in.

    When I go to a fast food place, if they aren't properly masked I fill out their online questionnaire, with great detail. Hopefully someone in their chain of command gives a damn.
