Depending on what else I have in my hands, or if I'm pushing a grocery cart, I often put mine on when I get out of the car and walk across the parking lot, or from the store until I get into the car. I'm not sure why somebody else wearing a mask would bother another person.

We haven't been hiding in out house at all. Why would we? We have been vaccinated, we wear masks around others, we wash frequently, and enjoy life. Last week, we went to the state fair.

The small changes we've made are worth it for ourselves and those around us.

Yep, wearing a mask and washing hands really are small changes....hand washing we probably were doing already and mask wearing is really no big deal....sort of like putting on our socks and brushing our teeth. I don't know why folks are making a big deal about it. Now something I really made a big deal about was not wearing high heels...yikes....they actually do harm your feet!

Ha! I gave them up long ago. Probably about the same time as pantyhose! Even before I retired, I stopped wearing anything other than pants (or capris in the warmer months).

May I ask what the Jesse mask is? I've been making masks using the Creative Grids ruler. While I am tired of the Coronavirus and everything that goes with it, I will continue to wear the masks and take the precautions until it is safe to not do so anymore!

Oh boy, I tried making those masks with the seam in the middle, and gave up. I stuck with the flat ones and layer a procedure mask underneath.

The only place I have been too in the last few months that required a mask was at the eye dr. and once in the exam room I was told it wasn't necessary unless I wanted to wear one.

of course - if one stays home no need for mask. If one lives in area with low case (or sickness) rates and high vaccination rates less need for mask. If one lives in a place like we do with minimal masking, people not social distancing, government rules prohibiting any safety requirements, hospitals full with COVID patients, unvaccinated dying at much higher rates than vaccinated then some of us will opt in to the mask. I don’t want to be even a little sick. Breakthrough infections very rare and deaths from breakthrough rarer yet. No vaccine is going to be perfect.

It's everyone's choice when there is no mask mandate. I do what I feel comfortable. Some places I do wear a mask, some I don't. I haven't seen anyone in their teens or young adults wearing a mask anywhere unless at hospital.

yes. Everyone’s choice. My choice is not to make anyone else sick inadvertently. Apparently some people choose to take the risk with their health and mine.
