Stop the protests….its a super spreader activity….

You’re referring to the protesting against MASK wearing, correct?

We are in agreement. Not wearing one is super spreader activity.

Where and when were the last “NO MASK” protest?…about two months ago in a different state than CA…so what in the world are you talking about?….plus the pictures of SLO protesters I’ve seen there are at least 1/3 of them without a mask or their mask is hanging under their spittle soaked chins….take a look for yourself…I’m sure you can find the pictures…..

There was a reopen protest in Paso, 5/2/20:

But maybe MrYan is referring to the constant objections on wearing masks.

Imho, Ramb, you are right about the COVID risk in the SLO Black Lives Matter marches.

Where was the last Mask protest you ask?

Daily at every re-opened business. Especially in North County. 30% as you say is about right. Most know they should be wearing one, but choose not to. Why? They’re not making a statement? Or protesting? I think so.

Ask the employees how much they enjoy the PROTESTations of non-mask wearing patrons that come in everyday. Loudly complaining when asked to cover and spreading spit with each bellicose breath.

Or non mask wearing in general; hasn’t that become a form of protest? Action, or non-action in this case, is a form of protest.

Yeah the protesters can spread this amongst themselves. By last count there were about 50 of them at most. It just feels like a lot more to you.

Your concern about “hundreds” of virus spreading protesters is noted. My concern? 30% of the population that are purposefully noncompliant in wearing masks when out.

Which number do you think is higher?

Agreed, find a different activity to protect black rights and the rights of us all. Register voters, contribute to supportive political candidates, get active. The protests have made their mark. They are “played out” “dirt’s gone dry”, in the lexicon of my mining family, new tactics are needed.

Sure see a difference in mask wearing and social distancing between SLO city and Paso area.

Some stats left out; there are 349 people in the County that are known to be currently infected with the virus, and we are still under 5% positive rate (less than 5 positive results from every 100 tests).
