  1. When the economy suffers, the people suffer. You should research the impact these shutdowns have had on people. The shutdowns have adversely and disproportionately impacted those under seventy. The median age of those who've died from the virus is over 80, very close to the life expectancy. Most had two or more comorbidities and would have died within months from those comorbidities even without the virus. IOW, we've devastated the young for a marginal increase in life for those over 80.
  2. What's so great about cruising with those restrictions? We will save our money and stay home until we can cruise in an enjoyable manner.
  3. Masks with valves are prohibited but masks with a hole for a straw would be?
  4. That changes nothing. I'm not interested in great ways to wear a mask I don't want to wear.
  5. Works for me. I'm not so desperate to cruise that I would spend several thousand to wear a napkin on my face.
  6. We might consider a Jan or Feb 2021 cruise but not if they require masks or social distancing. Requiring a vaccine is fine.
  7. I won't be happy with wearing a mask or with social distancing. My next cruise is booked for Oct 2021. I fully expect to cancel that cruise.
  8. You may see this: you can board a plane with proof of vaccination or with the results of a recent negative virus test. So you can get one/two shots once or go get tested multiple times.
  9. You need to tell the governor of california who recently told his state that they must replace their masks between bites. BTW, my country club requires those standing at the bar to replace their masks between sips. Those seated at the bar are not required to do so.

  11. Oh, I understand the science. With a mask, the stuff gets all over your face, etc., when you constantly touch your face while adjusting the mask. I was a chemical warfare decontamination analyst for about two years. I know that civilians aren't trained in proper masking. If your intent is self-protection and if it requires two masks to stop the virus, then wear two masks.
  12. Well, then masks as normally worn are truly ineffective. Especially those made from t-shirts. The bottom line, if you want to protect yourself, get a proper mask properly fitted. Then you don't have to worry about others wearing a mask.
  13. Why not wear two masks, you'll protect yourself and others?
  14. Did you bother to read the article, especially the highlights? Only five participants reported what they called 'discomforts' and "all five participants — three in Moderna’s study and two in Pfizer’s late-stage trials — said they think the discomfort is worth it to protect themselves against the coronavirus. " Also this: "While the symptoms were uncomfortable, and at times intense, they often went away after a day, sometimes less." One wonders how these 'discomforts' compare to the 'discomforts' of the virus?
  15. Those 25 cent masks are only good for one wearing. They should be replaced after a short period of time. 330 million people, four masks per day, that's 1,320,000,000 masks per day. At 25 cents each, that's $330,000,000 per day. Since the majority are improperly worn, it would accomplish nothing.
