Back on the main subject of this thread, I'm home in Colorado now and bracing for the zombie apocalypse. Our governor for some reason instituted a state-wide mask order the day we left for South Dakota and now I have to face the faceless crowds with a soggy germ-bag firmly installed against my airways in all public indoor places. Last time I spent time indoors with a mask, my face and neck broke out horribly with giant pimples that quickly became infected. I'm 41. I should not still be battling acne! I'm one of those idiots who can't help but touch my face when I have a mask on (the sweat, the dripping snot, the tickling sensation!). Since I also rarely wash my hands or use sanitizer, I suppose acne can only be expected. My biggest problem is that my nose runs constantly from the warm, moist air and then I feel compelled to wipe it with my hand or even blow my nose on my shirt sleeves. So then I'm walking around with snot on my mask, hands, and sleeves all day. Does anyone have a suggestion for masks that DON'T create warm, moist air underneath? I'm not sure I understand the mask rule being put in place NOW since Colorado's death count has only gone down since May. We've had rising cases among young people for the last few weeks, but I see that as a GOOD thing. Hospitalizations are still down. There's no shortage of supplies. So why are we still trying to stem the spread? It's not like the virus is ever going away. I'm not sure yet how my town has reacted to the mask order and I anticipate there may be some friction. I popped into Family Dollar last night on my way home for a gallon of milk. I had my mask on, but the cashier's mask was dangling around her neck and the man behind me in line had no mask and kept railing about government control and takeover. If this was just the first five minutes of being home, I'm pretty sure the next few weeks may be very interesting. At times like these I'm very glad I'm not on Facebook. I can only imagine the vitriol there. We have some very strong anti-maskers in our community and they were already getting close to boiling over on the virus issue before this new mask order even came into place. I just hope nothing devolves into fights, murder, suicide, and drug overdoses. The grocery store cashiers were already openly carrying firearms before the new order because of too many hostile confrontations. I feel like getting sick is the least of our worries. Turning on one another and on the authorities in rage and frustration seems the bigger danger. I smell anarchy in the air.
