Disney Springs Mask Enforcement

It's a big city thing. Go to a beach in a small town. The tourists are free there. I know, I've been that tourist this year. It is quite refreshing without the constant reminder that there is a pandemic. No masks, no nothing. Just family fun on a beach like its...............2019. Eventually people will crave this again.

I don't know Big Phil. Delaware (where I worked) just closed the bars and restaurants over the long holiday weekend because they have had a spike in covid cases.
Now I went to OCNJ last saturday and I made it a point to go early in the morning, so the beach itself is fine but the problem we've been seeing is that since the beach is really the only game in town, it's of course now super crowded. I usually go down the 4th of July but I'm skipping that too because it will be packed with no mask wearing folks who have no where else to go.

I have read the science so yeah. I will "have at it". Science it not an option and not to be treated as "fake news".

Hey look..... More fake news huh? Forget where the lines represent. The blue line is mask wearing social distancing people. The red line is 90% of the people in this country doing as they please and believing that masks are harmful.

lol which may explain why we are currently "persona non grata" in much of the world.

I want my husband to read this. :hilarious: We're going to Cape May today and I keep telling him it's going to be crowded because of the 4th coming up and because there isn't much else to do right now. I went to Longwood Gardens on Monday and it was empty. It was heaven.

Wildwood just recently cancelled their fireworks. they were comfortable that people would be able to social distance with a normal crowd but now with every place else cancelling they were scared to have a mass influx from all the other shore towns. thanks for the Longwood tip, I wasn't sure if they reopened.

I think it's going to be tricky this week, weather is going to be hot and sunny combine that with nothing else to do. have fun Cape May is one of my favorites. ;)

It's not just NY. It's everywhere. My wife and I took our son to a fireworks store yesterday and not a single person was wearing a mask. Several looked at us very confused like we were walking around with no clothes on. Before anyone asks why we went to the fireworks store since it is not necessary I just want to point out that my son's birthday is July 4th and it is a pretty big deal at our house. He has always had fireworks at our house on his birthday and I was not about to skip it. When we went to the grocery for curbside pickup we watched people walking in and out of the store with no mask on. I could count maybe 10 to 15 people that were wearing one. I live in Indiana and it is still a Red state. People here think that if you are wearing a mask then you must be protesting He Who Must Not Be Named. :rolleyes: This COVID19 is never going to go away because as long as it is not them dead or laying in a bed face down with a ventilator fighting for their lives then it is not a real thing. So they just ignore it.
Horrifying. I'm officially scared now and will say it to anyone who asks. To those who accused me of fear mongering, you're right on the money today. I am fear mongering, officially, as of 7/1/20. I think enough time has gone by to justify my reaction.

It’s amazing how people continue to claim that it is impossible to keep new cases down, keep them down for any sort of period of time or that huge spikes are inevitable while it is actually happening.
But is it really amazing at this point? You can't teach an old idiot new tricks. And they've been dancing this jig nonstop since WDW closed, if not longer.

We probably weren't the winning any popularity contests before all this started but I have to say, I am horrified and never thought I'd see the day where we would be banned from traveling to the EU! I really am kicking DH for not having taken a team position overseas. He had his choice of Norway or Ireland. He passed because he didn't want to disrupt the kids schooling. If only we had an accurate crystal ball!

Why would they mean more? I have to wear that death trap 40 hours a week, not by choice. So it irritates me the more people I see comply like trained seals with this thing. If we all just stopped being so paranoid no company would force you to wear masks if the public wasn't into it. My question is what is your exit strategy? If you are waiting for a vaccine that is not acceptable. HIV never got one, so you might be waiting forever. Do you want to wear a mask for the rest of your life in a crowded environment? You didn't start thinking this way until
No HIV does not have a vaccine but that doesn't mean you go buck wild doing the hanky panky. It has been shown that a little piece of latex is enough to keep it from spreading. so as a single dating women, if it ain't "zipped up in plastic" we're watching tv. lol so yeah for the rest of one's life if you have HIV you wear a condom.
No the common cold does not have a cure but again that does not mean I willy nilly hang around people that are sneezing and coughing. I purel always have. I stay healthy and try to avoid catching a cold.

there is a lot of ground between being informed and being paranoid.

I'm not being paranoid, at least I don't see it that way. I see it as a choice, just like not smoking is a choice. I look at the data that we have today, I understand that this is a novel virus so every thing can and will change and I make decision based on that.

Or to add to your post - maybe everybody does not get it at once and the health care system is better able to handle those that need it. Maybe some people don't die because healthcare workers are working 90+ hours week and dead on their feet.

or

Maybe a treatment protocol is developed or the impact of the virus on the body is better understood so if you catch it later you have a better chance of surviving and a shorter recover with no permanent impact

or

Maybe a vaccine is developed.

If I, by simply wearing a mask, social distancing, and washing my hands, can delay getting this virus until a better treatment is developed, I think I will do so.

For anyone arguing that you can't see a smile under a mask and that just ruins the whole gosh darn experience: I'm guessing no one has ever had a genuine smile in your presence, because that isn't true. When someone gives a real, not forced smile, the eyes crinkle up. And unless they've come out with some new fangled mask that covers the eyes, you should be able to look at their eyes to see how happy they are. If the eyes aren't showing a smile, that's probably to do more with the current company than any masks.

In some locations at WDW there are open kitchens where guests can see cooks working in front of the hot grill stations. I'm sure it's not easy for the kitchen staff to be cooking and wearing the masks and trying to breathe through the smoke.

The kitchens shouldn’t be full of smoke and a mask would help with particulates in the air.

A good example of this would be the videos showing Universal Japan and Tokyo Disney after they opened. You can hear the tone of their voice, see them waving enthusiastically etc. There's more to a smile and positive attitude than visible teeth.

I wore a mask for a large chunk of my workday. Whenever I was wearing a mask, I always knew when they were smiling. Peoples eyes are very telling of their facial expressions underneath that mask, and not just for smiling.
