I've heard people call mask wearing "Virue signalling"

And I've heard most people take that as a negative.

When did virtue become a bad thing?

When did you letting people you care for their health become a bad thing?

I'm sorry, but masking is very effective and very easy.  I just bought 500 masks online for $50.  Made in Canada.  For staff and patrons.  It just makes sense...

Yes, my wife's office staff are still wearing masks. Plus, if you come for an app. you have to put one on before entering the building.

By people, I assume you mean idiots.

They're the same idiots who call masks muzzles, tyrannical, oppressive, etc.

Best to just ignore their incoherent ramblings.

If they were an occasional encounter, 1 in 100, that is the easy solution.

Unfortunately, it seems they are a very visible minority, and a vocal one at that.

Face diapers, maskaholics, sheep... there seems no end to the vitriol they want to spew, to what end?  So *they* don't have to cover their faces?

Watch what they say if their dental hygienist isn't wearing gloves, or their lab tech isn't gloved to take a blood sample, or their surgeon isn't masked to do their operation.  God forbid thier sandwich artist doesn't don some poly hand covering.

Maybe we need masks that say "I wear this for you, and your kids"

My SIL is a high school teacher, teaching by zoom this week because he has it.  At times this year, he has had classes of less than 50% capacity.  He masks 100%, but there are no UV or HEPA filters in his class.  I am giving him my extra UV/Hepa unit when he returns to class...  how hard is it for schools to buy these?  Why is there any reluctance?

The covid vaccine was rolled out in Manitoba two years ago today. Saved a lot of lives.

Officially, not recording deaths as COVID unless zero other factors...  so, 10 deaths... where thousands and thousands are cramming crematoriums...

Lotta lives spared the suffering and despair indeed
Personally, after initial 2 then 3 boosters, my tolerance as an aging senior is strong
Please, if you haven?t, get on board and get vaccinated

While it has a catchy name, I don't think Kraken is any more dangeropus than Omicron, and vaccines have similar resistance... it looks like Kraken has become the main variant now, in a matter of weeks...

I wonder if a supervirulent but innocuous variant can end up causing the "pause" in infections that might end the pandemic.  The bout of post infection immunity that can prevent the spread, the sought after "herd immunity". 

Will the anti-maskers claim that mitigation will prevent this from taking place?  It wouldn't, because even though mitigation will keep a part of the population "out of the herd", that also means that they don't need the herd immunity because, well, mitigation.

XBB.1.5, dubbed the Kraken Variant, is highly transmissible but reports indicate the severity of symptoms are no worse. The same strategies for other variants should be taken for this new one (masking in public/crowded settings, getting boosted when/if possible, and good hand hygiene habits)

I'm concerned with what's taking place in China now that the country's Zero COVID Policy has been lifted.

I can't see 2023 being any better than the previous years since this all began.
