Mask Prediction...

Been in Cincinnati all weekend at a large youth sports gathering.  I would say 50% have them and 25% of those aren’t really being worn.


Went out to eat last night,  nobody wearing them but the workers

When, I don't know...the Prez, maybe, said the thing about how vaccinated people won't have to be mask'd up when outside, that kind of threw me for a loop because it's been a while since I've worn one anywhere but inside a building or at an event where it's required.

Went to Sammy’s burger and brew.  Great little spot up in blue ash.



Went all the way through IKEA with no mask.  I was the only one without one

Sammy’s is good. We go there when we go to the gun range down the street. Fretboard Brewery is right by there as well.

Spock: hardly anyone in Cincinnati wearing a mask!

Also Spock: went to IKEA, I was the only one without a mask!

Whoops, meant to say Fletch.

I don’t understand the logic of people, who are fully vaccinated, but are still too fearful to walk around mask free. 

The main argument I see is “the vaccine isn’t 100% effective.” Yeah? It will never be 100% effective, nor will the world ever be 100% vaccinated.  What’s the barometer for those who still insist on wearing masks after vaccination?

I think it's a courtesy thing more than anything.

I can see all kinds of sides to the mask thing, except the idea that wearing them is any more than a very minor inconvenience.

It doesn't make any sense. Once you are vaccinated, there is no reason to wear a mask. Anyone who wants to be vaccinated can be, so anyone unvaccinated has chosen to risk getting the disease. Even the horrible messaging CDC says that vaccinated people are unlikely to spread the disease, if they somehow get it which is already unlikely.

I think it's got to do with the fact that even if you're vaccinated, you can still transmit covid. I don't think it's so much a protection for the person wearing the mask.

This sounds like a "masks forever" situation.

1.  Vaccinations have shown they are 100% effective on keeping you out of the hospital.


2.  There is zero evidence that there is asymptotic spread.

I don't think so.  I think it is a group psychology issue.  The pandemic was a huge year+ long event.  It will take society time to readjust to normal.  As such, I believe masks will peter out over the coming weeks and months.  


Just a guess, but I don't think it will be a forever thing.

Do you believe it's time to stop wearing masks?

The science behind the states that don’t have a mask mandate says it is
