F/U from ztriffritz's post yesterday.

Somebody needed to get hardnosed about this.

I hope it works for them.
In my locale, the only place I've found that requires face masks is Costco. Even there, one couple removed their masks as soon as they were out of sight of the entrance staff, and several others were wearing their masks on their chins.
I feel part of a doomed and failed society.

Leaving it to local governments is certainly the best way to go in terms of governance. But when that fails, it's incumbent on higher ups to take the leadership role.

The west coast has its concentrations of freedom fighters, and they can't be allowed to endanger the rest of the public with stupid actions during an epidemic. It's not freedom for all when some can't go out and about because others won't agree to follow some fairly simple actions on their part. Wearing a mask in public during an epidemic isn't an impingement on ones rights.

Amen.

It's not even the masks, it's being told what to do that they rebel against.

Why do people even need to be told to do it. It's plain common sense. Idiots.

Might have to do with the president’s attitude towards masks.

As well as a very large segment of his political party.

Why is that even relevant?

If the president, any president, says jumping off bridges is perfectly safe, should we?

You should ask his followers who aggressively reject masks. It is cult-like behavior so don't expect the answer to be rational. The President has said he believes some people wear masks to show they don't like him. So his followers don't wear one to show that they do. It's insanity.

As a 23 year resident of Washington state, I'm very concerned for Yakima and the entire state. I hope Inslee's new order encourages more people to wear masks and do the other common sense measures we've been told to do for months now.

Someone also has to address the reasons that this area became a hot spot and has now exceeded its hospital capacity, and it's not primarily about mask-wearing. Many locales have low mask-wearing but are not having outbreaks like Yakima's.

I'm sure WA Dept of Health is working on that.

Remind these people that the government requires them to use seatbelts in automobiles, maybe they should cease that too.

Don't be surprised if a large percentage of them don't. Same with motorcycle helmets.
