Why argue about a tool that can help minimize COVID 19 than to think it is cool to perpetuate COVID 19?

BTW COVID 19 can strike twice?

How Masks Help
Masks Are the Key to Stopping the Rise

COVID-19 can be transmitted via respiratory droplets, which may become airborne when an infected person coughs, sneezes or even breathes within a few feet of someone else. The virus can also settle onto surfaces, where it may survive long enough for other people to pick it up and transfer to vulnerable areas like the nose, mouth and the outer surface of the eyes (conjunctiva). So masks, by slowing the rate of droplets leaving the mouth and nose, can help reduce the viral load in the air and therefore reduce the number of virus particles on surfaces, but only if everyone does their part.

Masks Are the Key to Stopping the Rise

Choosing the Right Mask

The materials a mask is made from and the tightness of the fit on the face are both important factors; getting either wrong will significantly reduce the mask’s effectiveness. The most current research suggests a combination of fabrics. The best seems to be making the mask from one layer of cotton along with two layers of polyester/spandex chiffon as the different types of layers are more effective than using one single fabric.

This is because different types of fabrics work in different ways to block virus particles: Cotton creates a physical barrier, while chiffon creates an electrostatic barrier. The combination of both offers a better chance of trapping more particles and therefore protecting everyone around us.

Conservatives prove themselves daily to be basically stupid about fiscal responsibility through reckless behavior promoting unemployment as a result of perpetuating a no mask policy. This is simply stupid.

As a result:

Investigating that COVID 19 has been in America much longer than America was advised is a must. Which brings forward the obvious question “ How long has COVID 19 been allowed penetrate the USA population?”

Expecting an honest answer is nonsense because politicians cannot speak in those terms. They choose spin!

As a result of conservative stupidity we taxpayers must Pay OURSELVES Stimulus Money! IT'S PATRIOTIC!!!!!!

This is really stupid = Elected officials pay themselves more than $3,370 per week ( $174,000-$194,000 annually) plus a variety of expense accounts = Over rated and over paid!

We taxpayers should receive stimulus money @ $ 3000 twice a month to spend in the economy as reward for being such fine people which would insure job security and plenty of economic growth. After all tax dollars do belong to the taxpayers.

Reckless decisions by conservative government has put millions out of work with 175,00 dead. Those under treatment or quarantine cannot work. Through no fault of their own.

The employed did not ask the government to treat the potential coronavirus threat as if there was no reason for concern. As a result COVID 19 came upon us and is not going away. Meanwhile government kept advising no need to worry all will be swell.

Unemployed workers should also receive $600 per week. Perhaps until workers are called back to work or new employment is found that pays a part time living wage @ $33,000 annually or a full time living wage @ $64,500 annually.

No one knows when COVID 19 will go away. Therefore government assistance should remain in place until further notice. Subjecting the nations once employed work force or for that matter any of us to congressional irresponsible behavior every few weeks is not acceptable.

Taxpayers are an investment thus provide strength to the economy = best bang for our tax bucks. I'm sure the lions share of unemployed taxpayers would rather be receiving a paycheck instead of unemployment insurance.

As far as I know there are no documented cases of people getting infected twice. The few cases that were initially thought to be reinfections now likely seem to be people who didn’t completely clear their first infections.

It does seem to linger in some people longer than others. My daughter in law was still testing positive 8 weeks after her initial positive. She is now testing negative.

Until there is more information from long term activity I say maybe or maybe not should be the order of the day:

Can You Catch Covid-19 Twice? - WSJ

Can you get coronavirus twice? What to know

Can You Get Covid-19 Twice? An Infectious Disease Doctor Explores The Possibility

I also speculate that the condition of an immune system could play a role = clean it up and live healthier.

Until all climb on board regarding the smart practice people who have become unemployed as a result of conservative negligence deserve all the help we taxpayers can muster!!!
