Nobody is comfortable wearing a mask. You wear one to protect others more than yourself. To not wear a mask is selfish.

They claim now that 40% of those who have covid19 show no symptoms but still spread the virus the same as someone with symptoms. So, nobody knows if they have it or not and could be spreading it to others.

Stop thinking about yourself and wear a mask.
Perhaps you would be willing to share your sources. And the date of the claim. Because every time that something comes out regarding this virus, things seem to change. That is true in regard to mask use. It is true in regard to how many people are asymptomatic. It is true in regard to how contagious it is for an asymptomatic carrier.

Here are a couple of facts. Colorado has a population of around 6,000,000. Care to guess how many people are currently hospitalized due to Covid? 200. Care to guess what the highest number of hospitalized patients in Colorado was? 900.

People would be well advised to not spend so much time watching the news. And to start thinking FOR themself.

I'd wear a mask if Colorado only had one case. I don't want to be number two and I don't want to spread it to number three. Do you?

Too bad it's not that low. Chaffee County has 123 cases and 19 deaths.
Your first statement is just silly. You'd wear a mask if Colorado only had one case? You would be one of the few willing to do that.

And no, I don't care if I am number two or number three. Unless you have some underlying health condition, your odds of getting truly sick are incredibly low.

I'm not saying not to wear masks when in public spaces. But it should be a choice. And NO WAY should an American be forced to wear a mask outdoors in parks and such.

Ask yourself this question. If masks were truly the way to keep the virus from spreading, why can't we open everything back up (again, not what I am suggesting, but people need to THINK about these things).

We have gone from "flatten the curve" which I was on board with, to I don't even know what now. You won't stop the spread until there is a vaccine. And I'm not willing to put my life on hold until that happens.

Wearing a mask is hardly putting my life on hold. I don't wear it outside where I am most of the time.

I have lung problems among other problems and i'm 77. You wouldn't wear a mask if you were me? Dying while gasping for a breath is not my first choice of ways to die. I'd sooner be mauled by a bear while bear hunting. Go out like a man and not laying in bed. A mask doesn't bother me and I don't give a **** what anybody thinks about it. Just don't walk up to me while not wearing a mask or you're in for a surprise.

137,000 have died so far in the US. You aren't really bionic man and can be next. Good luck with your attitude.
You might want to calm down a bit and think logically.

First, its not just putting on a mask. It is everything that has gone along with it (including crippling what was a raging economy).

Second, read the mask orders from places like Jefferson County/Tri County. It requires wearing a mask, even if outside, if you are around people who are not part of your household. So yes, that has a dramatic effect on most peoples life if they follow the regulation.

77 and lung problems is high risk. But you wearing anything less than a N95 mask will not protect you from contracting COVID. And what do you mean by your statement about walking up to you without a mask and being in for a surprise. Because to me, that means you are threatening violence. Which, with you being a 77 year old with bad lungs, likely could mean a trip to the hospital for you. And/or a trip to jail. Neither of which are a place you want to be in general, but especially if you have a phobia of COVID.

Finally, 137,000 deaths. First, that statistic is overstated, as if someone had COVID along with a heart attack/stroke, car accident........ Do you know how that death is recorded? COVID.

And even if that wasn't the case, 137,000 deaths in a US population of 330,000,000 is, overall, pretty insignificant.

Turn off the TV. Do some research for yourself. Practice critical thinking. You are almost certainly going to be ok.

I really hate it when someone assumes they know so much and whoever they're talking to knows nothing.

I'm done with you on this subject. I know what you watch by what you're saying.
Sorry that it is hard for some people to deal with logic and facts over emotion. But better decisions are made that way.

I do wish you good health.
