It's not going to be "over" all of a sudden. It'll be a slow unwinding for years. One day, maybe two years from now, maybe five, we'll realize that our masks have been sitting unused in a corner for months. And that it's over. There will be no big party.
Burn Your Masks. The way they burned bras!
@anonymous not to be pessimistic, but pandemics are expected to be the trend of the future.....not sure if I am throwing any masks away
Yeah, I'm thinking that's the way it's going to go. Just like when the numbers went down in NYC every so slowly this summer and we all cautiously went out and did a little more bit by bit. There was no day of "hey the March/April horror is over!" Too bad, I'd love a mask-burning day. How about a day where I delete zoom from my child's ipad?
I think masks will still be part of life, just less and less -- seems sensible for the rush-hour subway or when you have a sneezy cold and want to be polite. Just like they do in Asia, long after SARS.
Yep, I plan on wearing my mask regularly even after this is over. Not at work or social events, but on subways, stores, etc.
@Anonymous Same same. Just like in Asia.
Some people love to cover there ugly faces. The masks will go away only on certain states
I have so many questions....
I like wearing a mask. And I’ve spent a lot of time in asia where they’re more common
