    Default Mask Up - Open Up!

    Supermarkets, pot stores, liquor stores have been open here in Oregon since the beginning.. I'm in a small town (Astoria) since the beginning, simply by chance.

    We've had almost zero cases until some folks decided to attend a wake in a nearby town, then bring the virus back to their workplace at a seafood processing plant in Astoria.

    Back on topic to my suggestion!

    Went to the store, employees are under requirement to mask up, they (fred meyer/Kroger) have wipers to deal with each cart, each customer. (nice) and they have ample sanitizing wipes.

    So, the employees and socially conscious people wear face masks and try to keep away from each other..

    I've been to the local supermarket during the rain and off week,

    The INLANDERS are flocking here to the coast and have no sense of containment.. NO MASKS

    Ending my long winded post, I sincerely believe that we have to open up! BUT.. we also have to MASK UP

    Just that simple step that is within OUR control takes a lot of the risk out of this.

    Then, we hope we keep the infection rate within manageable levels while life goes on.

    Looks soopid.. I get it.. President Trump thinks they look STOOPID too,

    Glad I don't have to work directly in contact with him!

    Lemme know if I should move this thread to the junk/off topic place that I created for this sort of rant...

    Lost in my initial rant, I just think we should make masks mandatory everywhere right now.

    I'm the biggest fan of "let the people do what they do" government style but I think that the simple step of mandatory masks, and well maintained sanitizing facilities at fueling stations... everywhere there's physical contact.

    This is a LITTLE TINY BUG, it's going to go where it goes, we can slow it, maintain it, but we can't stay shut down!

    MASKS MASKS MASKS! Manditory in all stores that are reopening or are open..

    Whether you think the whole thing is BS or not. Pretty simple step to maybe take a bite out of the spread.

    I wear my biker bandana every time I go out. Wash is on a regular basis.

    No problem what-so-ever for me.

    6 months ago you would have gotten shot waking into a store wearing one

    Theres enough trashy dirt bags out there who could care less, plus I do not want to catch no Chinese virus, sure there will be more in the future.

    Thanks for that! The discussion is relevant to the forum for sure, IMHO!! (occurs to me that stuff like IMHO might not translate for everyone) You guys think that we should have a dictionary for crap like IMHO FWIW AFAII

    I found a good link!

    When I was a Kid & listened to the radio it use to say at the end of the program "Who Was That Masked Man" & of course it was the "Lone Ranger". "Hi Ho Silver Away".

    The grocery stores here have notices citing the ordinance limiting of the number of customers allowed inside at a time and the requirement of wearing a mask.
    There are marked spaces outside the doors for waiting for people to leave.

    And I have seen a couple guys get verbally angry when they were not allowed to enter with no mask.
