    wearing masks makes me feel weak and dizzy

  5. I saw a mother and her 3 children wearing Crocheted Masks.
    I asked my MD neighbor Her opinion on the effectiveness of Crocheted Masks.
    She stated, “That’s like trying to keep our mosquitoes with a Chain-link Fence.”
    All mask are not equal.

  6. Yes mask should be mandatory, this virus is still spreading. If you don’t wear a mask and you are near to a person, and that person cough or sneeze you can breathe that in so it’s better to be safe than worried right.

      You need to get off the MSM crack…get educated with the facts. The entire world was already exposed before the new year. This is no more deadly than the fIu. Etc…These are FACTS.

      You are spreading disinformation, I would beat you into a hospital visit were I I to see you do this in person.

  7. We cried and cried, why are we not using mask, then they said well wear it, now they are making it MANDATORY, this is crazy. I get it on the bus.but really!!!!!!!

  8. They’re refusing because it’s a free country dummy!!

  9. They don’t believe that this is real. Some of my family think its, the government trying to mess up the country in their opinion

  10. I couldn’t afford mask and some places i have seen they were selling 5 for 15. But that was the surgical masks. I finally have one.

    Yeah, I’m not wearing a useless mask. I’m certainly not risking hypoxia, pleurisy, acidosis…etc…for what amounts to a fIu.

    There’s no way I’m going to allow the government to demand I wear a mask

    • Several studies after the first version of SARS showed that cloth and paper masks are useless.


      It’s Plague Chic, Fashionistas of the Diseaseahs.


      My favorite. Wearing masks in a plane and then TAKING THEM OFF TO EAT?!?! ‘Cos the air you breathe in and out in a plane isn’t constantly recirculated.

      Or restaurant protocol. Wear the mask whilst in line and while ordering, take it off while eating…again to have your breath recirculated in an air conditioned area.

      You’re being run by clowns.

    • Joe Madden – just for me – wear a mask.

      LMFAO, Ok Karen, you go girl.

  13. Until we find a vaccine…. Why do we permit those in higher vulnerability age group to make these decisions?

    Why not make it mandatory to shut the whole country just shut down for 14 days period !!! Stock up for 14 days of whatever you need and just DO IT !!!

    I own my own body. You won’t tell me what I have to put on it. If you try to commit violence against me to force me, there will be consequences. Real, physical world consequences.

    but my glasses keep fogging up.

  17. John Tory allowed a miniature ‘autonomous zone’ and is being allowed by security and enforced which is where the security’s jurisdiction is.

  18. If this station gets any more stupid it’ll win a Guiness.

    If you see me wearing a mask, it will be a balaclava, and you will never see anything else…

    There are hundreds of Claustrophic and PTSD victims… wearing any form of restrictive face mask produces very high levels of mental anxieties……! NO MASKS….!
