Masks After The Mandate Has Been Lifted

Hello Everyone!

I have mentioned this before, but I live in a very liberal part of the US.

Where I live, the mask mandate has been lifted, but people are still wearing the masks; even outdoors. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

I truly feel as though this is a "psyop".

I seem to be the only one going on about my day without the mask (as I have been for most of the "pandemic")

Another thing I would like to mention is the vaccine cards. Almost all of our most important documents/medical related documents can be found online as well as our banking. It's safe to say that a majority of society has switched digital. Why would they make a paper vaccine card that they know could be so easily duplicated? I also feel like this is another psyop. The digital passports are coming for sure.

I know things are about to get hard, but if this is what it takes for Jesus to return, I'm fine with it.

God bless!

Sort of. I think some people just like rules. They also like privileges, so they feel if something will give them "exclusive access," they'll want to enforce it.

I have a friend on FB who posted that a local bar was requiring the vaccination card-- so that's the one they're going to! Vaxx only bar, woohoo!

The vaccine cards baffle me too and are really archaic. It doesn’t seem like they’re entering people’s names into any kind of system for medical records. If someone got the shot and then lost their vax card, they have no way to prove that they received it.

Yeah. It just seems like a way to go "well, people can fake them, it was a disaster, therefore we must go to a digital system." Whereas people may be less likely to accept a digital system right off the bat (especially old people).

A "vax-only" bar sounds like my personal hell LOL

I hear that somehow, someway IF the passports come to life (which is likely) that they are linked to IBM. I am not a "tech" person, but the whole thing just sounds off.

I have no problem staying home and not going out. I already do that :laughter:

My issue is getting food. If we are excluded from stores and will be unable to get food, I need to really think about getting a homestead in place.

When walking into a limited set of stores in our area the signs read something to the effect, "Individuals fully vaccinated are mask optional, if you are not wearing a mask you are stating you are fully vaccinated." I am surprised the word COVID is not part of the vaccine sign - as @Mrs.DanielH once pointed out, sure we are vaccinated.

Technically 2 out of the 3 vaccines are actually mRNA gene therapy and not vaccines- correct if wrong.

So the individuals not wearing a mask are:

1. Vaccinated employees
2. Vaccinated customers
3. Not vaccinated customers

Those wearing the mask (which seem to be a lot of individuals still) who are not ADA:

1. Vaccinated individuals who did not read the sign
2. Vaccinated individuals who read the sign and still wear the mask
3. Non vaccinated individuals who care less what people perceive about an individual who looks to have taken the vaccine - fake it.

When it was mandated in our state I just did not wear my driving/cleaning glasses inside so I could not make out facial expressions.

Little children are still being masked over in these parts of the country.
Universities will require residence hall students to be vaccinated most likely - especially if vaccines are pushed on campus.

I have not had the same signs in stores in my area to my knowledge, but that sounds insane.

Yes, little children are being masked. Heartbreaking considering "the science" shows that schools are one of the only places with such a low rate of transmission. Nothing makes sense. All bull crap.

Universities are requiring the jab. There are lawsuits being filed and religious exempt is allowed as of now for universities only.

IBM was the company involved with collecting census information for the Holocaust back in punch-card days.

Yeah, I don't mind being home. However, there's a difference between being home because we want to and being coerced to stay home. Not having common events also puts a spoke in certain relationships.

My local Target had in the door today, “masks RECOMMENDED for those who have not had the COVID-19 vaccine”.

As I am 10 miles out of St. Paul (this area votes Democrat but not overwhelmingly, it’s definitely purple), I was pretty pleasantly surprised to see something that lenient. Baby steps?

A day or two after the mandates lifted, everyone still wore masks. Now, I’d say a third of the people I saw in my suburb today had one on. Even in a nearby tourist area they weren’t being worn extensively. (Today’s weather probably played a part, it was beautiful out and I saw a lot of midriff shirts.)

This all makes me feel a little better, for what that’s worth.

Seems that people in your area have somewhat of a brain.

I am slowly starting to see some "normalcy" in outer areas of where I live.

Part of me thinks its over but the other oart thinks this will kickback during flu season.

My local grocery store removed the large "mask required" signs on the door and replaced them with much smaller "mask required for non-vaccinated individuals" signs. I went in without a mask as I've done before, but only saw a handful of other people not masked. Two were chad types, one was a old dude with a Korean War vet hat on, and on my way out another guy took his mask off when he saw me without one on.

I think the average person is conditioned to comply.

I travel through several areas which lifted their mandate at various times. So I've been comparing them. From my observatory in a purple state it takes about 2 months to get down to 20% maskers in major metros. I've also noticed with the heat starting for summer, 20% has half of them "chinning" it after a little walking around in wherever they are.

Lots of people still wear masks while completely alone outdoors where I live.

Masks are like the new cigarettes. People are doing it because it's THE "in" herd behavior, and because "popular" figures are telling them it is actually good for them.

These people know nothing. Are they even people? I dunno.

I would almost rather my kids smoke cigarettes than wear a face diaper.

I'd gladly go back to dealing with secondhand smoke if it meant nobody was on Prozac or Zoloft anymore, and smartphones didn't exist. It almost seems like 2008 (when I began college and the bars allowed smoking still, at least in my state) was six decades ago.

I don't think this mask compliance would have caught on nearly as well back then, even in the year we elected Obama.

I feel the same.

Its that weird "need" to fit in and feel a part of a group.

Keep in mind a lot of people have tuned out of all this covid hysteria and might not even know that the CDC no longer requires masks. Some of what you're seeing is people just going to the store and putting a mask on because the "virus" is still around and they haven't heard otherwise.

I got my hair cut the other day and was informed that my state no longer has a mask rule, but my city does, so the broad wanted me to keep my mask on while she cut my hair.

I had no clue our state had rescinded a mask rule, and anyway I think the rule was nothing more than a glorified request in the first place. My legislature didn't pass any new laws and the governor doesn't have the power to shut down businesses.

So paying attention to the governor's "request" going away is not something that was ever on my high list of priorities. I wore the mask when shopping so other people wouldn't freak out and yell at me, not because the governor was going to punish me, and that's probably still the case so I still throw one on at the store. Seeing people masked up really did terrorize me for a while but I've mostly gotten over that. I'll stop wearing it when the majority of people at my grocery do as well. I don't really care what the CDC says.

Yeah masks were evil but they won that battle. We are almost 2 years into this now and I've accepted that and moved on to other issues, like the vax. Point being: Just because you see someone still wearing a mask doesn't make them a cuck.

I don't think that wearing it makes you a "cuck" at the end of the day Its your right to choose what you want to do. Thats what makes America "free", BUT I will say that I do think the lack of resistance is setting the precedent for vaccine mandates.

Personally if someone yells at me, I have had no issue exercising my rights, but I understand that not everyone wants the confrontation. It did get exhausting until recently.

Its odd to see how compliant people were with the government mandates to begin with,since they were never laws (just suggestions). It's even odder that the mandates have been lifted and people are still complying.

In some cases, I do believe people do not know (like you),but I think majority of people don't want to look "selfish" or like they're a "republican" (since republicans have been boxed into being anti-maskers)" and I have heard that, that is a reasoning as to why some are keeping their masks on.

The whole thing in its entirety is just insane.

I tend to disagree. No offense to you @Max Roscoe and we're both Christian men, so I don't mean this to be belligerently confrontational but have you considered what your fear of being yelled at means for my children?

I don't expect anyone to care about my family and I'm not one to say "do it for the children" but I'll admit I struggle not harboring hate about men who created this new world for our youth. Also it's been hard to accept how many otherwise good men will comply with evil until the end.
