How does one go to a eatery or coffee house and partake if they have a mask on? Not really very easy is how.

Goofus Lucas killing off more businesses by attacking the customers or those who will spend the money!


It's up to the people to practice good health practices. If you're sick stay home. Practice distancing as you should which way too many people are not doing.

I think staff wearing masks is more important than customers as they are more than likely to spread any virus to other people than say one person or couple is. Plus real hard efforts at cleaning up after each customer has left. I was at a place this past week for the first time where food is served and I was wearing a mask as I wasn't eating only meeting someone who was. But he and I were watch staff cleaning up tables and sad to say it was horribly being done. Condiments being passed table to table with out being cleaned. Wait staff removing dirty dishes and not cleaning hands before moving off to grab a customers cup for a refill. These are the issues that need to be addressed heavily not mandatory mask wearing. Cleaning in commercial places I have noticed is already slacking off again headed right back to the practices in place before the pandemic.

This coronavirus is the strangest virus I’ve ever heard of. It’s very dangerous in the way it spreads.

It is so mysterious the way it lurks in schools, but then dies at Home Depot. It can wreak havoc in churches; praying people are exceptionally vulnerable! Although it’s mind-boggling how it vanishes when people stand close together holding signs, destroying businesses, homes, property, monuments, etc.

Yet, standing to watch a marathon or a concert triggers its wrath. It is sneaky. It can spread when buying clothes at Kohl’s but not at Target. It is non-alcoholic. It can’t spread when you are buying beer.

It lives for two days on Amazon boxes, you must wait 48 hours to touch them but it can’t survive on Dunkin Donuts coffee cups, so enjoying a hot cup of joe is safe. It is the most curious thing, how it lives on basketballs, baseball bats and ballet bars, but dies on WWE ropes and Walmart shopping carts. It is spread by hair stylists, dog groomers, and dentists, but not by bank tellers, cashiers, and fast food workers.

It’s so smart. It won’t bother the first 10 people gathered but it knows when the 11th person shows up, so be careful if that’s you! It even knows what you want vs. what you need. If you want a massage or your nails done it is very actively on the prowl and not even a mask can stop it, but if you need a plumber, it is weak, and a mask will keep it away. It also seems to be most dangerous after 5:30pm so businesses must start to close before the virus comes out of hiding and wreaks havoc upon the populations. It also requires dine-in restaurants to have a shorter menu and you use real plates but only plastic forks and spoons.

It knows when you go the wrong way in the aisles of Walmart or Target or encroached closer than 6 feet to another customer as it will have a parking lot ‘Karen’ pushing a baby stroller stand behind your car and not allow you to leave. Once you repent your sins and have been absolved you may leave.

It lurks in the car dealers closed showrooms so you cannot drool over the expensive non-essential vehicles. If you are a looter and break into a car dealership and steal expensive models of vehicles, as in California, you are exempt.

It leaves TV cameramen alone but enjoys munching on the reporters. Thus the virus makes the reporters wear a mask and virtue signal but only when on air.

Whoever heard of such a clever, sneaky virus?

Everyone Should wear eye protection too. It can infect if it gets in your eyes.

Without an effective vaccine, nothing can be done to keep it from affecting every single person in the world. It's just a matter of time.

China should be held accountable for unleashing this scourge on the world.

Actually I don't know what the health director in JOCO is thinking? I can't understand a word that comes out of the mans mouth. JOCO should have masks mandatory. Don't get all high and mighty with me on this because if you have the virus the mask protects others. So everyone should be considerate enough to wear a mask. Unless you are just an uncaring MF'er. That is what I see, you are too important to be worried about grandma and gramps or people with compromised systems.

There weren’t any rioters in joco so it didn’t spike there.

The rioters are to blame for the current spike but the despicable dimwits refuse to admit it because..... orange man bad. You people are being played by the morons of the dimwit party and the fake news media who drown you with lies day after day until you submit to their brain washing. The dimwits want your lives ruined by breaking your investments and bank accounts again because orange man bad.

When will you idiots learn?

Masks are not exactly harmless. They reduce the concentration of Oxygen and increase the concentration of Carbon Dioxide being intaked into the lungs with every breathe. Maybe you will just get a headache. Maybe the added stress on your heart and lungs will have worse effects. Too bad. There is this virus see...

Only a brainwashed leftist idiot actually believes a nuisance mask does anything besides single them out as a worthless liberal moron to be admired by other worthless liberal idiots. The mentally ill dead weight libs in our society whom couldn’t run a food truck are just a burden on the rest of us producing nothing but liberal lunacy. So all you good leftist idiots out there wear your mask to bed tonight so you mentally ill idiots don’t get sick. It’s a real shame the virus didn’t just infect progressive leftist traitors the world would be so much better off
