Almost a year? Almost 2 years sounds more accurate.
If it’s a cloth mask, it’s worthless.
I was gonna jump in here with some scientific studies, but honestly I don't have the energy. Let's just let the antivaxxers die out
@NerdyGirl69, they can't die out if the virus is barely a threat to normal people
@Nudity Industries, normal healthy dude in his 20's here... i got it and i was super fckin ill. One of the days i had it I was extremely worried i might have to go to hospital, thankfully managed to get over it but still feeling the effects months later.
Sure you might have a low chance of death if you dont have underlying health conditions but it can be awful while you have it and have long lasting negative effects on you.
Also by being more careful it means that you reduce the strain on hospitals where more people might die due to overloaded services

@TheMediocreHulk, give him a little longer, he'll be here
So, you're saying the mask is effective?
You guys are wearing masks?
@thatoneguymaybe, only to the doctor. And honestly that’s something we should keep up. Like yeah there’s a whole room of people here that’s sick enough to pay money to fix. Gimme all the protection you got fam
@BigJohnson86, Interesting idea. But I work with doctors everyday, and 50% of them aren't fans of masking. So I'm not sure how that will go.
@BigJohnson86, right, because masks are great against infections caused by viruses carried in droplets (like the flu).
I just don't go anywhere that requires one, which is pretty easy since noone near me requires them.
I don't get why people are so anti mask. You only have to wear it for like 20 minutes while you're in the store, an hour tops. Are you so fragile that wearing a mask for an hour will hurt you or your feelings? Plus the mask is nice in cold weather
Just had omicron. Never masking again.
I mean as long as you regularly wash it, go nuts
It hasn't failed me yet
