Where are all those folks 2 weeks ago pointing to Florida, Texas, and Georgia as beacons of leadership for opening up quickly? Have your opinions changed, and do you wear masks?

Blame the people who think wearing mask is against their right to breathe. People who are sensible, wish good health for their family and even other's, want to be able to go back to their homes to reunite with family, want the world to bounce back are wearing the masks. I do.

If there is blame, it is on the people. We shouldn’t expect the government to tell us what to do. I wear a mask.

Sorry - This is a stupid take. We all pay taxes to a government that has a duty to the welfare of its constituents. Part of that duty is to fund a health organization to handle precisely what we’re dealing with, a global pandemic of a novel virus. That organization should dictate the terms of how the public AT LARGE should handle this outbreak, and evolve that strategy as the situation changes. If everyone had done the same thing across the country at the same time, we wouldn’t be dealing with what we have now which is multiple mini pandemics across the country. The country would be open and people would be getting back to work but that makes too much sense so here we are.

@P1 - just because these measures aren’t a 100% effective doesn’t mean we stop taking precautions. Some prevention is better than none

I’m in Texas and haven’t left the house since March. It’s absolutely the people, not leadership. Even now with a mandatory mask order, people are losing their freakin’ minds and planning on suing. I’m embarrassed. 😖 I read a report that most cases are coming from parties. About two weeks ago, graduation ceremonies took place as well as parties. My family was invited to some and that was a big NOPE. But considering we are far behind in testing and contact tracing, who really knows.

Texas here, basically the same - I've made runs to the pharmacy monthly for refills. I think better leadership at the state level (or national, but that's asking a lot from this crew) would have been helpful because the anti-mask crowd wouldn't be able to complain about inconsistent messaging as much. Abbott completely marred the message about the pandemic and how we were handling it over the course of the last few months, and it's harder to walk something back than to have been consistent throughout.

Sure, that sounds eerily familiar to what the gov of TX was saying about 2 weeks ago. Every one of your metrics is going the wrong direction. Good luck A2

Abbott is a joke. Austin mayor tried to mandate masks over a month ago and the gov shut it down. Now everyone is in an uproar over the flip flopping since it’s now law with a fine. I’ve worn a mask out since Day 1 and still do. *sigh*

FL here. We never had political leadership for the people. We have a governor who simply manages the tourism and economy from tourist dollars. We’ve known we are on our own since April. God help the unemployed...they can’t get claims filed or approved.
