Are you still wearing one?






Im almost past the two weeks after getting vaccinated, was wondering what other board 8ers are doing since a good number of people who I know are fully vaccinated still wear masks indoors

I might just keep one on me just in case I guess

I wear masks still in any indoor place with people that I don't know. Do not wear masks outside except when required, but I never did that anyway.

Vaccinated and I wear it where it's required but since every store is hit and miss on whether they have relaxed the rules yet it basically equates to wearing it all the time

Got my second shot at the beginning of May and the few public places I go these days have dropped the requirement, so no. I trust the vaccine.

no vaccine yet so I still wear one, although it's never been required here. Very rare to see someone without one though

i wear one when indoors with strangers most of the time except at the gym. at the gym doesn't have a mask mandate and no one else wears one so i kinda look weird wearing one, and obviously it's easier to breathe without it.

Why would anyone wear a mask if they're vaccinated other than to virtue signal? The Science says that there is no evidence that vaccinated people can actually spread Covid, and obviously the risk of getting severely sick from it is nonexistent.

Honestly, I like the idea of getting sick less often. I might be immune to covid, but there is a bunch of shit i'm not immune to, and in the pre-covid times you looked bizarre if you just wore a mask. Now that it's a standard way to appear I'm just going to keep it going.

Some businesses still require them to enter, and there's no way to prove someone's actually vaccinated

At this point, if I had to choose between no one wearing masks and everyone wearing masks... if we didn't have a large contingent of morons without a legitimate medical reason to skip the vaccine slipping it, yeah I'd say nobody wear it

So it's basically a form of peer pressure

This reminds me of the people who obsessively use antibacterial soap and then leave themselves with a compromised immune system that can't fight off everyday infections.

Because some places still require them to enter. I actually can't think of any places except for Publix and 1 post office that actually have them as optional in my area. Everywhere else still has it posted on the door as required

This reminds me of people who are quick to quote that "fact" without accounting for the very narrow range of people it (potentially) affects. An over-use of anti bacterial soap is hypothesized to have an adverse affect on the developing immune systems of children. It's a hypothesis that comes from observations that people in developing countries have lower incidence rates of things like allergies and asthma. So the logic is that people in developing countries are more likely to have exposure to pathogens. Of course the other way to view it is "the ones that survive the pathogens are more likely to have had a more sturdy immune systems" so is it the chicken or is it the egg?

But there is no hard science showing that antibacterial soap creates a negative immune response in adults.

But hey, get sick if it will make you feel "tougher".

On one of the first days of the mask mandates being removed, I went out with some friends (all of us vaccinated). Place we went to had a sign that masks were not required for vaccinated people. Probably about 30% of the people were wearing masks. Our group, since vaccinated, were not wearing masks. Someone in our group said, after being inside for about a minute, "wow, it feels nice to not wear a mask anymore", and I, in a very sarcastic and obviously joking voice said, "yeah, but careful, if you don't wear one, people will think you voted for Trump", and she said "Good point" and put her mask on. I thought she did it just to punctuate my joke...but she left it on for the full 1.5 hour we were there...

This is unironically how to strengthen your immune system. Like you shouldnt go out catching Ebola or Covid intentionally, but for lesser things. yeah. Thats the entire point of having an immune system. Did you never take basic A&P or Biology? You have lymphocytes for a reason.

Also 75% of this board wearing masks after getting vaccinated shows what a far left crazy town this place has become. That is such an embarrassing statistic. I live in New Jersey, which youd think would be similar, but pretty much everywhere I go now has signs up saying masks are optional for vaccinated people. Only one place Ive gone so far has asked for proof, which I do carry around just in case. That one place was of course a card shop frequented by leftist NPC types who sent endless complaints that they wouldnt come to the store if the unvaccinated were allowed to take masks off. The owner more or less said he would ask for proof and allow the vaccinated to do whatever, and if anyone didnt like it they could go elsewhere. No where else has asked.

Obligatory reminder - you folks are in a far left echo chamber and in no way represent the real world. If youre making literal New Jersey look sane, then you have lost the plot.

Theyre following the same science (see also, ) that once told people smoking was good for your health, the best way to prevent lice in children was to spray DDT all over them, and that HIV/AIDS can be spread via handshakes and sweating.

lmao I made a joke like this to someone too. They said it would be the opposite of virtue signaling because they were trying to not signal something.

In NoVA, there's a large amount of people still wearing masks everywhere.

I was down in SC for Memorial Day and while there's a lot less people wearing masks, I was surprised that there was still a decent sized chunk (say 20-30%) still wearing them at various stores.

Naturally I caught a cold from a family member down there and had to wear my mask for the last week when indoors to be a good person and hopefully not spread my cold around. Felt good though knowing that you can wear one while feeling a little under the weather and go about your business.

Which means I'm generally not wearing it in the office.

That said, wearing it outside is surprisingly valuable if you have allergies. Worth keeping around for that reason alone imo.

The vaccines are not 100% effective and getting sick sucks even if its very unlikely to kill you. I also dont find wearing a mask when Im at the store or whatever to be a very big inconvenience.

you dont need to follow the mandate. Im in Ontario and I dont wear a mask in stores - no one says anything including employees. One manager asked me if I had a reason to not wear a mask and I said sure. That was the end of the conversation. Its your choice of course if you want to wear one thats totally cool to each their own

Still wear one in public. The vaccine, while very effective, hasn't reached nearly enough people yet to reach herd immunity. And it's not 100% effective. Once we reach acceptable vaccination numbers, then I'll stop wearing one. (Sadly, the people who refuse to get vaccinated are the ones less likely to wear masks in the first place). I don't fault anyone who doesn't want to wear one anymore, but I'm going to continue until we reach herd immunity.
