Mask Mandate for Alabama

This week our Governor instituted a mandatory mask requirement. Exceptions are children under six, while eating or drinking ??? (I guess COVID does not interrupt you meal/drink time). Businesses have various policy concerning those claiming to have health exemptions.

We haven't eaten inside a restaurant since February. CA just a few weeks ago stopped inside dining anyway. Tracking data shows a huge amount of transmission is happening inside restaurants so that is good enough for me to stay out of them.

So I guess when you’re camping, your tent or your RV is considered your home.

Dang it's getting crazy out there . all the research i've seen on masks say they make no difference but i guess it's a placebo effect ! in fact mask research i've seen done around 2015 /2016 shows cloth masks make it easier to catch viruses then not using a mask at all . but who cares about science and research if it makes you feel safe and is mandated really not much of a choice .

It’s not hard to see why folks are shaking their heads and trying to get the straight on what is true and what is not these days. There is hardly any reliable way to be certain.
I wish the response to the virus had stayed with the scientific/ medical community and not the political gyrations that it has.

Personally, I'm following the advice of the medical clinic we use. You can't get in the door without a temp test and a mask. Many of the staff are now wearing masks and clear face shield. They are the professionals in treating and controlling disease and if they think masks help, I'm not qualified to judge them.

If we all wear masks and the disease continues to spread, then the naysayers will be able to say 'I told you so.' If we all wear masks and the disease slows down, it will be a good thing.

Big business has taken control and now is requiring masks in their stores - no matter what state you live in.

When I wear one, I have to remove it every few minutes or I get light headed and dizzy. Always had that problem, which is why I wind up inhaling a lot of dust when sanding and wind up hacking up a lung when sanding my projects. I just stay away from people, of course I come by that naturally being an introvert. I don't care to be around people, even if they are family, just weird that way.

Scientific research shows masks do not stop the spread of viruses . especially the cloth ones everyone is using . seems there is a scientist in every opinions pocket that will say what will get them paid

Correct and I'm not wearing one while driving either. But stores have "guards" at the front door making sure you have it on or you wont be allowed to enter.

If masks didnít work everyone helping the infected would be dead.
I would like to see the research study the shows masks donít work. Every Research scientist I know wears a mask while working in bio labs.

Agreed. Funny how all medical people suggest us to use masks and somebody's friend of a friend says to not and everybody believes that person.


A lot of covid deniers. That's why we continue to have problems while countries in Europe and Asia who took it seriously don't.

Each time I went to get tested at the WPMC outdoor testing site, the techs were hanging around with each otherómaskless, and not socially distant. They, of course, hazmatted up before sticking the Q-tip up my nose and into my brain.

Do with this information what you will. Just relating a factual observation.

I reported the negative effects of the mask to my doctor. I now have a letter exempting me from wearing a mask.

Wearing the mask did not stop me from getting COVID. In fact, with my immune system, I was shocked that I got it. I have a strong suspicion that wearing the mask inhibited my bodyís ability to shake off the virus by making me rebreath my expelled air.

Wearing a mask does not prevent you from getting it...it prevents you from spreading it.


That's why I won't go into a place of business if the employees aren't wearing masks. My mask that I am wearing is protecting them from me. The fact that they aren't wearing masks is the risk to me.

I am not entering this argument. I am sticking to stating facts. Please donít drag me into it.

Here is another FACT: The letter from my doctor states that I am aware that by not wearing the mask, I am risking getting the disease.

How true this is. My clinic always takes temps and all there use masks. Good enough evidence for me. The deniers, on the other hand are contributing to the problem. Just this past week one of these deniers we know tested positive as did his wife and at least one other person he had close contact with.

X2 Exactly............ what the experts are saying. The N95 masks are a different story.

Now here in Virginia the Codes Board has just passed a regulation requiring all employers require their employees to wear masks, provide training and more or hefty fines can be levied by Virginia OSHA (VOSH). The regulation was passed yesterday it is the first in the nation.
