So When do the Masks Come Off?

FYI medical N95 masks do not have outflow valves, those are the ones for industrial use that have the valves.
Right. Because an outflow valve eliminates the value of the mask at protecting other people from the wearer's possible infection. When I'm sanding drywall, I don't really care if the drywall is exposed to my germs.

We had a town hall at work today, it was a lot of "wear a mask" talk and someone made their feelings on masks known with a few f-bombs

Testing fluky?? Or virus comes and goes on a whim??


As we previously reported, the 7-time NASCAR champ -- one of the biggest names in racing -- pulled out of the Brickyard 400 race in Indianapolis over the weekend after testing positive on Friday afternoon.

But, since that day ... he was re-tested on two separate occasions -- Monday and Tuesday -- and the tests came up negative for COVID.

Unfortunately the false positive rate on COVID tests is less than stellar. The FDA reported that one common test was at 3% false positive. Not enough to really impact the overall assessment of risk, but leads to scary days for plenty of people and a lot of unnecessary work for contact tracers.

Just sneakin' around....
Just saw a news report for 'zipper masks', masks with a zipper so you can take a drink or a quick bite. Did a search.

Not a new idea, is all I'll say..... :lol:

And then there is this guy who lost his insurance job because he lost his chit in Costco. I’m sure I will be fired when my boss discovers what I am posting here about masks....

damn shame..he’s not allowed to say what he wants. The Ted Todd Insurance agency and Allstate deserve to be sued.

What happened to a businesses right to hire and fire whomever they want?
Depends on what state your in. What happened to an employee having “rights” and everything not being PC? What happened prior to the video to cause his outburst?

Like it or not someone's viral video reflects on their employer and if that employer doesnt like how it reflects they have the right to say we ain't dealing with this.

You sound like a socialist what with supporting the free market and all.
