DeSantis could sink our chances of cruising out of Florida

No where did you say signs point to it. Look at your first sentence you say “Yep the slow down has started in texas”. My question was “Are they really slowing down....”. Same thing. Again my question is are they really slowing down or is it because they have more vaccines? No need to get defensive. I was simply asking a question and not implying anything since I haven’t looked into it.

 

They cleared the wait list. No more wait list. A week ago there still was a wait list. How is that not moving along toward getting everyone done who wants doses. It has started here. I only watch texas. 

 

As we get more doses than we can use over the next month I'll also be interested how that plays out.

We have come across the same thing. Publix, Home Depot, Walmart, Lowe’s, Costco, Sam’s and Bj’s make you have on a mask. I’m sure there are a lot more. Wished we would get to a point where we don’t have to wear them shopping.

Not completely true. 
I walk into Publix and Lowe’s with my mask on my wrist. 
I walk into Walmart with it on, past the entrance person, get my cart, then let it hang down from one of my ears. 
I don’t shop at Costco, Sam’s or BJ’s  
Maybe it’s a Beachside thing.

On a different note, doesn't anyone else feel this whole virus issue, mask wearing, vaccines, etc., has become totally politicized? 

 

 

Absolutely. So tiring.

It must be because here they will tell you to put it on. I have seen this happen. There are probably other stores that don’t tell you to wear them, but the stores I listed that I have been in make you wear one.

Here on my beach you can not enter any establishment without a mask on and wearing it properly.  It has to do with the number of cases — you are further north and maybe your cases have gone down.   We on the other hand get lots of tourists from all over and our rules have not been relaxed yet.

If indeed you do "know," you would know it was conducted by the United States Public Health Service.  When finally revealed, President Clinton called it "shameful and racist."   Indeed, there is no question the government was involved.

 

Seriously don't know why you keep repeating yourself. 🤔

In my first reply I said government was involved. 😉

 

My point was, they often lie

Publix in Marion County and Brevard County still have mask signs up. Surely you must see them.🤔

Publix stores do have signs, but all the employees can do is to offer a mask to someone who isn't wearing one. They can not tell them they have to wear one or leave.

And you also walk right by the sign on the door that says masks required. You must feel special

Absolutely, but if an establishment prefers that I wear one, I will. End of discussion.

 

And they don't enforce parking signs, either.😉🤣🤣

Totally agree.....if the store requires one, I abide.

 

AND, true again, parking signs aren't enforced either.....they wouldn't want to offend anyone!😜

That's Publix company policy in most areas.  Their signage at the door provides adequate notice that masks are required and they could legally enforce it if they wanted to, including ejecting customers from the store or having them removed from the store on a trespass warrant for refusing to comply.  But they have determined they don't need the hassle.  In my area of Brevard County, the vast majority of Publix customers comply with the requirement.  It's amazing to me that anyone will just walk by the signage and disregard it.  Their store, their rules.  Common courtesy.

Minus 1 death?  Are you saying someone was brought back to life from the dead?

That was the report for the day and they didn't explain.  This has happened before with our numbers.

I think "hassle" is the wrong word.....I think "bad PR" is more appropriate.

Here you can add Winn Dixie, Walgreens, Lowes and Home Depot to the list.  Even the employees are only partially wearing their masks with them under their noses.

Is this why I can't fly a drone on the ship?

I think some are confusing levity with levitation. Two different things.

I do. About as special as some on this board that feel special because they are vaxed.

Some places here have gone from required to recommended.
