    glad to read that David and friend are OK!
    I hope that your friend (the anti masker) gets well soon.

    why do folks insist on being so selfish about non mask wearing?
    are they making a political statement?

    my opinion is that those anti maskers are just arrogant rule breakers making a statement of their superiority to the virus and in defiance of doing the right thing to protect all
    .
    this is no different than "wearing seat belts" in a car or plane.

    people should just do the right thing.

    Our friend who has it is a nice guy, but had many FB post about anti masks, the numbers of Covid patients isn't that bad, etc. Now he has it. I just hope he will be okay and let people know it is no joke.

    Virginia started "mandatory" masks today...

    Masks are required:

    • Everyone ages 10 and up
    • Inside all brick and mortar retail establishments. Both essential and non-essential stores, including grocery stores and pharmacies
    • Inside all personal care & grooming establishments
    • Any indoor space shared by groups of people who may congregate within 6 feet of one another or who are in close proximity to each other for more than 10 minutes
    • Inside food & beverage establishments, except when eating
    • On public transportation
    • State and local government buildings and areas where the public accesses services
    • Entertainment or public amusement establishments, when permitted to open

    There are some exceptions to this requirement. Masks are not required:

    • For children younger than 2 years old
    • While eating or drinking
    • While exercising
    • If you have trouble breathing or are unable to remove the mask without help
    • If your health conditions prohibit wearing a face covering
    • If you’re communicating with a hearing-impaired person, needing your mouth to be visible

    While everyone 10 and older is required to wear a mask, the governor is strongly encouraging everyone older than 2 years old to wear a face covering.
    Enforcement of these requirements will be done through the Virginia Department of Health, rather than law enforcement agencies.

    I don't get it either. Some say, "my body, my choice" but don't understand that by wearing a mask they are protecting others or just are simply selfish and don't care. They choose not to understand the health risk and tend to think that the virus is not as bad as it is, they seem to think that all the numbers are false and it is a political move to oust the current president. They think their rights are being taken away, but yet, I bet none of them complain about "no shirt, no shoes, no service" and want clean and safe restrooms, gyms, stores, restaurants, etc. Some of the things I've seen on social media just boggle the mind.
