    Only kids under 10 or people with a disability that can't wear them. Everyone else has to wear them or get a $250 fine.

    Texas has been far too lax. No one wears masks here, unless they're in a hospital. There was a guy at a comic book store here who hit a man with a mask when offered one for absolutely free. It's no wonder Houston is dealing with so many cases. Ineptitude from residents all the way up to the government.

    I don’t get what’s so bad about wearing a mask unless you have asthma, it’s better to just wear it it instead of being a big sissy and acting like it’s such an injustice to put a piece of fabric/paper on your face
    you ain’t that pretty lol nobody gotta see your chin bruh

    Wearing a mask just as a precaution I think is great, but who is paying for these masks that are now a requirement?

    See, this is something I have a bit of a problem with. If it is a requirement, then how does people with limited monetary means pay for something they absolutely must have.

    Where I currently work we are required to wear a mask within the office, but our company provides the mask they require us to wear so no problem. I believe this is the right way to do it - whoever requires the mask are the ones who should be providing it.

    Japan never had to shut down or quarantine. Everyone just sort of wore a mask and numbers just went... down.

    How is that a solution? If you already have limited monetary means, how is staying home ever going to improve the situation?

    Sure, but how do you pay your bills and provide food for yourself? Remember, we are talking about people with limited means who may not be able to afford the masks.

    Then only other choice is to wear DIY cloth masks that everyone was showing off since last November.

    True. At least it lets people go out and do things. You know, cause it's a mask.
