    Some are yeah. In my town, 7 restaurants have closed down. None were chains, all were "mom and pops" restaurants.

    I'm done not going out. I'm done seeing the inside of my house.
    If you do it safely and with mask on then that's not the issue. The issue is with people still wanting to have their new years parties with friends and booze. Any rational person knows that no social distancing will occur and masks will come off in the first 10 mins.

    Trying to mock people and insinuate that they are afraid, or even paranoid, about a very real concern is not fair or right. Some idiot who doesn't wear his mask and stands to close to me could possibly infect me and from me, my husband, my mom and dad etc. My dad has emphysema and is on 24/7 oxygen at home. If I give it to him, I will be directly responsible for his death. Also, anyone who is not afraid of this is either stupid or doesn't have the imagination to understand what will happen before you die. Hold your breath for as long as you can (literally past the point where it gets uncomfortable and where your chest starts burning). That's what it feels like when you can't breathe. Now imagine yourself feeling like that for weeks in a hospital bed before suffocating (if you are lucky enough to get a hospital bed).

    Suffocating to death is not something I would like to experience. Passing on a deadly virus to my family members and losing them to it because of my own selfishness, is not something I want to be responsible for.

    Just this last week in my area, a 26 year old teacher (otherwise healthy) died of covid. She had also infected her parents and they both have now passed away as well (her mom died today, her dad earlier in the week). She got infected 2 days before her wedding. Her fiance now will never have her as his wife or see her again. Is a wedding or a party worth your life? This is the harsh reality now. Hospitals in my area are completely full and on divert. They are even sending serious patients to other provinces because they are low on oxygen. Medical aid patients are now being sent to government hospitals because all private ones are full. The only take away from all of this is to be as safe as possible and to stay out of the hospital.

    I don't think he ever said he isn't going to wear his mask. Squid said that he isn't going to be locked in anymore, he has common sense and will continue to live his life (with a mask).
