The wearing of a mask does does nothing unless it's a full hazmat suit. To actually suggest that a mask can stop a virus is completely ludicrous. Isn't it ironic that masking mandates ended a day before the state of the union and yet the "reported" deaths were actually higher than the same time last year? Another thing, asking someone to wear a mask when entering a restaurant but miraculously it can be removed once seated is laughable. Enough of all this. As a matter of fact, it shouldn't even come down to these comments to determine whether or not to mask up. Also please explain to me why someone's opinion outside of Virginia should even be considered! END IT NOW!
