My son's buddy wears a mask when he's in public because he's not vaccinated. I asked why, and the reply was the if everyone else is vaccinated, he won't need to be. I saw a large group of college kids wearing masks at the pub. I casually asked what that was all about, and they said because they're not vaccinated, and insist it's their choice. I'm guessing that they're trying to make a statement (mommy's not in charge?), and I agree that it's their choice. I dropped it and went back to what I was doing.While at Wally World yesterday, I noticed a lot of young people shopping in the store were wearing masks. Young men mostly oh say around 17 - 20. Maybe 16, I'm not good at age guessing.
Am I missing something here? As to why more young people are suddenly wearing masks in public? And at a restaurant with my father just last Sunday there was a table of oh say 10 young men around age 16 - 20 I'd guess and all of them were masked as well. They were either part of some group or sports team or maybe some religions thing being it was a Sunday early evening, but they were all wearing masks. When their food came they did remove their mask to eat but returned to the mask afterwards. I myself wasn't masked nor my dad because we've been vaxxed, and the waitress was not masked either.
Is something going on? Is it true that the covid variant is effecting the youth more so now than before? Is that it? I rarely see any people out in public wearing masks these days, but then we have the young people suddenly masking up. Just seems strange.
I personally feel that a free vaccine to help out others (even if it's just a show of solidarity) is a good thing, but it seem people have other thoughts on this? If the scare tactics assaulting everyone from every angle would just stop, this likely will sort itself out faster. A person in my church is terrified of the vaccine...and terrified of COVIID.
Sadly funny when the cure and the illness are treated the same.
