    Didn't his boss also say we were going to open up last easter?

    There's a big difference in letting new information change a directive, as opposed to just plain making stuff up.

    The same people who criticize Fauci's initial mask opinions (which he has been absolutely steadfast on since April) are the same people who were calling it a hoax or similar to Y2k in MArch, and in no way cared what Fauci thought then anyway.

    People only started hating Fauci when he said there was no clinical evidence that Hydroxychloriquine cured covid(which he was absolutely correct about), then he became a punching bag for covid deniers for some reason.

    I don't get what the rush was? Wait a little longer for the vaccines to be distributed and then go from there. Just arrogance.....

    Those numbers don't seem to be that high for the elderly or someone with a preexisting condition.

    95% is the mortality rate for people with co-morbilities.

    Um, yeah, that is incorrect.

    Reporting Weeks 1-52
    2019 - 2,852,610 Deaths
    2020 - 3,325,646 Deaths

    That isn't true. There were more deaths in 2020 than in 2019. The totals have not yet been finalized, but it may be the highest number of people to die(all deaths) in the U.S. in a single year.

    Over the past 10 years the flu has killed an average of around 37,000 people in the U.S. per year. The high during that 10 year span was around 67,000 in one year. This is not the flu. It doesn't make it the worst pandemic,either, but it certainly isn't the typical seasonal flu.

    I think the fear mongering was very successful.

    Might end up there. I am not a fan and didn't become one when he was trying to host his own reality show and I expected someone to jump out and yell "live from New York, it's Cuomo's Update"!

    Yeah I hate it when I Google Corona stories and articles pop up from April/May 2020. So much has changed since then.

    Yes, it was a big mistake but he admitted it.

    Now, think back to the behavior of people when this first showed up. If they went crazy for toilet paper, what do you think they would have done with the masks?

    Yes, I believe what he says because we all have to believe someone within the science.

    I am sure he was getting pressure from business owners with spring break coming up in 2 weeks. I live inside the Resort in Horseshoe Bay, Hill Country, and the population quintuples during spring break and the owner of the resort and those vacation lake rental owners are hurting from this entire past year.

    His own lt. governor, a true head case, was adamant about old people and the vulnerable taking care of themselves. To hell with them, we gotta go on living our lives.

    Going to be interesting to see how the Mayor of Austin handles this, he and the governor are oil and water. Which makes sense since the governor is owned by oil.

    Whining about it isn't going to help. If you have been wearing the mask and feel it is effective, continue to do so. If not, suffer the consequences. I'll continue to wear the mask and maintain distance as much as possible.

    I have just received my 6th email and 3rd text just today from area businesses, mostly health related, stating that masking will still be required to enter their business. No word yet from CVS or Walmart but the most interesting I got was from the local market here.

    They stated that they would continue to vigilantly enforce the masking and deemed it even more important because an unmasked person entering the store has been other places without a mask and increased the odds that they are carrying the virus. I thought that was an interesting take on this.

    Imagine that. The business has the freedom to decide the expectations they have of their customers in order to do business with them and government doesn’t need to mandate that it occur. Consumers also have the right to not shop where masks are required. Country used to value freedom.

    Its to protect employees, who shouldn’t have to be exposed to potentially a symptomatic people. But I’m sure people will take it as taking “freedoms” or whatever

    I have no problem with any establishment's rules. It's their place, what right do I have to get mad? I've got two legs and or a car. But the day they remove the mask mandates here in NJ (like in 5-10 years) I'll just be going to the places that do not require them. I'm sure there will be those that do the exact opposite.

    Yes, we will. Employees have the freedom to seek other employment if they are too scared to live their life and think a mask will protect them from a virus that has proven to spread regardless of actions taken.

    So you think we’d have the same exact number of cases if not a (29 million) single person wore a mask, ever?
