Doesn't seem worthy of revolt. Working/ distancing/ masks can be done without being too burdensome, I do it everyday. Our rules are 6' or mask. I am sitting in a conference room alone mask-less. If someone is walking down the street, I would not expect them to mask as long as they can separate.

Whether or not people will revolt is questionable, however I believe that those who make the correct decision will wear a mask to protect their own health and maybe the health of others.

The best advocate for mask wearing is your own self. You either elect to wear it or elect not to wear it and roll the dice.....

I fail to see anything to gain from any more mask wearing threads.

Maybe you should change the title of this category to Covid 19 in the lakes region only. I personally don't have any problem wearing a mask if need be but I see many on here see it as an intruition on their civil rights. Politics aside,
just wondering if they will comply with a National mandate or not.

Since this site is intended to be 100% dedicated to Lakes Region issues and activities I thought that would be assumed, especially by long-time members. Do I also need to rename the other forums to "Boating in the Lakes Region", "Restaurants in the Lakes Region", "Home Maintenance in the Lakes Region", etc?

Default Hypothetical = Useless

Honestly this thread should be deleted. It’s a hypothetical question that was only started to start controversy....

Just my opinion

Judging by observation, the Lakes Region has already revolted! I don't see a lot of mask wearing when I'm out and about.

Default A better question...

Is what if we see a slight surge and follow in the shadow of other states - and everything gets shut all the way down again ?

Then what, another 90 days of nothing open and takeout only ?

The places I have frequented it's been 50/50. Mostly staff but customers have them and put them on as needed.

Default I don't like wearing a mask, but...

Doing nothing is not an option that is palatable to the majority, so that is not a viable answer. Staying home indefinitely is not an option. So, if wearing a mask helps, which seems to be the case (even VP Pence is encouraging masks), and being careful to maintain distance, whatever distance is deemed both effective and sustainable, then I'll do it. I realize the mask is providing limited protection for me, but by all accounts does help minimize me spreading it to others. I don't care whether I'm being a sheep, whether it is Constitutional, or how I look. I want the virus to go away.

If people can offer a more effective way of minimizing the spread than wearing masks and maintaining distance, please share. If not, please put on a mask before going into a public place and when in crowds. Masks aren't effective if only 50% of the population wears them.

I'm open to other science based solutions.

As to The Lakes Region, I liked the sign at Heaths (hardware) - basically it said out of respect for the employees, please wear a mask. Everyone except one person was doing so.

Thumbs down

If it happens, I will not wear a mask (in the Lakes Region), and if confronted by anyone (in the Lakes Region), I will speak only the following two words (in the Lakes Region): “MEDICAL EXEMPTION”.

Case closed.....

I'm a numbers guy, and here are the relevant numbers to me --

Deaths per 1,000,000
New York - 1,652
New Jersey - 1,706
Massachusetts - 1,174
Georgia - 264
Florida - 163
Texas - 85
New Hampshire - 270

Deaths and hospitalizations are decreasing. Based on the numbers we (the Lakes Region) should be opened up full throttle, no masks, no social distancing. (People in the Lakes Region aren't really adhering to these anyway.) Deaths in Belknap and Carroll counties are microscopic. We're ready to work and enjoy the summer. It seems that we have figured out that we need to protect our elderly and morbidly obese, while the rest of us can develop a heard immunity to get this thing over with. If you are elderly or obese or have a loved one who is, the responsibility is yours to protect yourself. Other places, e.g., NY, NJ and Mass, may have to take a different approach.

Hopefully, you haven't been confronted. I'd have a two other words for the person. Thankfully, no one has confronted me. The way I think of it, they have the right to think what they want and think less of me, and I have the right to think what I want and think less of them. If people want masks, we should use the democratic process and vote on it, like other things. And that has been the problem with this so-called crisis. The 40,000,000 plus who are out of work and the tens of thousands of small business owners who have lost their businesses, had no vote on this nonsense.

Hi Major,

No, I have not had anyone confront or say anything to me. Like you, I’d have 2 different words for anyone that would be stupid enough to confront me. I was referring to any so-called “official” that would confront anyone if some kind of BS mandate were to be implemented. You’ll hear me screaming “MEDICAL EXEMPTION”!

ROFL that you're a numbers guy...

But if I take the numbers you've presented as correct/meaningful, you seem to be asserting that NH should open full throttle even as places with numbers that you've quoted as better--Florida and Texas, both governed by Trump minions--are now in the process of reversing their full throttle openings.

So I'm going to go way out on a limb, and assert your numbers are an incomplete picture. I think the Governor is doing a great job for the Lakes

The ONLY reason why Florida and Texas may be reversing their respective courses is because it has gotten political. Much like the situation Trump was in when this nonsense first occurred.

Their reopening up earlier than guidelines recommended was political so there's no reason to think that any move they make isn't politically based.

Trying to keep this focused on the Lakes, but you're really making me hurt from the laughter. The Governors of Texas and Florida have been hailed by our President as strong leaders in Republican states. They do not need to fold to anyone other than hard line right wing voters (like you). You are advocating a plan for us that is completely out of touch with reality.

Golman Sacks says that a mask mandate would save the economy a 5% hit.
