Stadiums May Test Fans’ Privacy Boundaries With Virus Prevention Technologies By Dave Campbell | June 5, 2020 Email This Subscribe to Newsletter Email to a friend Facebook Tweet LinkedIn Print Article Article 63 Comments June 5, 2020 at 1:37 pm abolt says: Hot debate. What do you think? 14 10Ridiculous! Were people getting sick in droves at sporting events before? NO! And we’ve seen many situations lately where people have congregated and not gotten sick. Indeed, 5000 years of human history shows that people have ALWAYS congregated together. That’s why we have an immune system. This whole fear of catching a virus is crazy and unnatural. Humans don’t live this way. If you have to worry about catching a cold or virus every time you go somewhere, you might as well kill yourself now. All places need is an “Enter at your own Risk” sign for patrons, and then go back to normal. Period. June 5, 2020 at 2:06 pm Reason says: Like or Dislike: 7 12Idiotic take. How many pandemics have you lived through? How many pandemics have happened on this scale when over 8 billion people are in the world? Maybe take your own advice and save some air and space for the rest of us if you’re going to be a reckless fool. Tell your friends too.

The other says go lick a door handle and die… So hip, so much fresh! Oy vey. Regarding viruses and immunology, which Polar probably isn’t an expert on, (Nor am I, but is more correct than you) your staying inside nonsense is indeed nonsense. If you stayed inside during small pox outbreak, barring a vaccine, would it make sense? No. Or perhaps we should have socially distanced the plague? That wouldn’t work either. There are reasons. This quarantine nonsense is not helping the scenario, and is pushing huge amounts of starvation across the world. As I have numerous times posted, even a 5% GDP decrease in the first world nations, would double world hunger. If I recall correctly it was another 135,000,000. Many would die, and the GDP decrease if we kept socially distanced would be much more in tune with 50%. We are talking world wide, biblical style hunger, and a shut down of medical services. I’ll go make sure people can live rather than cower in the house in hysteria over a less than actual 1% death rate, thank you very much.

In case you wanted to know OSHA guidelines state that wearing a mask over a long period of time causes brain damage. They’ll probably change that standard too, why not, all other rules are going out the window. We are supposed to breath the fresh air. They are asking us to cover the one life sustaining orefice. it where I breath and take nutrition, speak of discomfort, complain about the government. No way should the world be wearing masks. its not healthy. If we didn’t watch the news and the hospital theatre set ups in New York, we would not even know there’s a pandemic. Pandemic Schmandemic.

Have you ever heard of respirators? Have you ever heard of masks with air vents? June 5, 2020 at 5:17 pm Interested says: Like or Dislike: 8 4Yes, but those are not the kind of masks people are wearing. they are wearing cloth masks that are a vector of bacteria. Unless you use a clean one every time, you are breathing in bacteria. Not getting fresh air – which is so important to humans.

I presume my response to Polar will show up once the links clear IJ’s filtering, so I shall not restate my point and simply say to you: please provide a link from OSHA which refutes my citations from the CDC & OHSA that do not say anything about not wearing a cloth mask for a long period of time. June 8, 2020 at 7:49 pm Captain Planet says: Like or Dislike: 4 1Interested, Do you know why people are wearing cloth masks? Because they are washable and in the long run, less expensive than 30 boxes of disposables. So, they are clean as long as the person washes them. And, again, that’s the point of a cloth washable mask. SMH. June 8, 2020 at 8:11 am PolarBeaRepeal says: Like or Dislike: 1 7A long period of time is 5 minutes. That’s about 3 minutes more than the time it takes for direct sunlight to kill a COVID-19 virus. Yes. Respirators are not portable enough to use in a grocery store, or affordable for most. Masks are both portable and affordable for most. Yes. Have you ever heard of N-95 masks, or wore one? (I have; there have no air vents). June 8, 2020 at 1:54 pm Rosenblatt says: Like or Dislike: 4 1“A long period of time is 5 minutes. ” Great. Now please prove your argument linking us to OSHA stating not to wear a mask for more than 5 minutes, because that’s not the guidance they just published: “Allow workers to wear masks over their nose and mouth to prevent them from spreading the virus.” https://www.osha.gov/Publications/OSHA3996.pdf Nor is it what the CDC is saying either (and this is about cloth face masks specifically) CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain, such as grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations. Who should NOT use cloth face coverings: children under age 2, or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html So I’ll wait with baited breath (pun intended) for you or Interested to post a link and verbatim citation to prove your argument and refute my “you guys are making things up, here’s my proof” rebuttal.

OSHA & CDC are saying to wear masks, and NEITHER are saying cloth masks should NOT be worn for a long period of time (or more than 5 minutes per your reply) So I ask you two — where’s your link from OSHA saying “don’t wear cloth masks for over 5 minutes”?

WHO said when they know transmission was occurring, that they did not know transmission could occur, but, when looked into further, they DID know, so why this tweet? http s://www.foxnews.com/world/world-health-organization-january-tweet-china-human-transmission-coronavirus When it comes down to it, you have to be particular on looking at info and studies. By the way, the two hydroxychloroquine studies were retracted that said it was bad, and now the original studies which showed it had benefit are the most prominent studies there are. htt ps://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200605/lancet-retracts-hydroxychloroquine-study June 9, 2020 at 3:28 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1I will note real quick, Craig is definitely wrong on this regarding the cloth mask. So, yes, I agree on that front Craig is absurd. However, this is what you’re working with, most people will not trust the CDC any longer due to the contradictory statements. June 9, 2020 at 3:56 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 1 1Your link contains blatant misinformation, the CDC Said no such thing, which is why your article is only being reported on a biased fox news competitor. mediabiasfactcheck.com/sinclair-broadcast-group/ Again, you don’t know what you’re talking about. June 9, 2020 at 4:00 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1It was not fox news I pulled the history from, it was Komo, for one, and for two, yes, the CDC did say that face masks would not protect from the virus. The CDC and WHO made many crucial misstatements and back tracks. God, you are so indoctrinated. June 9, 2020 at 4:03 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1Here is the Hill, referencing the change in the WHO position on face masks. Is the Hill fake news? https://thehill.com/changing-america/well-being/prevention-cures/491725-who-no-evidence-wearing-a-mask-can-protect You always go for the source, when a fact is given. You’re wrong Jon! Are you now lying? Can I say that in the future when you post to say “I don’t have to reply to you because you are proven to give misinformation” as you did to me? Say the words “I was wrong” Jon, it’s ok, you’ll live. June 9, 2020 at 4:05 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1Or how about the CDC itself referencing when they changed their mind and why? ” In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.” https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html#:~:text=In%20light%20of%20this%20new,community%2Dbased%20transmission. Is the CDC lying that they changed course on it? For goodness sakes, they did advise that people not wear masks as it would not help. June 9, 2020 at 4:08 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 1 0LOL your original article claimed the CDC said surgical masks won’t protect you, with you specifically adding “CDC saying masks won’t protect you” now your article says WHO advises healthy people to wear non-medical face masks, and an article from the CDC saying cloth masks are reccomended. Do you even realize that those are completely different topics or are you so delusional that you really think one proves the other? And then you turn to the petty namecalling, I’m guessing in anticipation of me calling you an idiot, because you are an idiot and a crazy narcissist LOL June 9, 2020 at 4:15 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1“Do you even realize that those are completely different topics or are you so delusional that you really think one proves the other? And then you turn to the petty namecalling, I’m guessing in anticipation of me calling you an idiot, because you are an idiot and a crazy narcissist LOL” The article from CDC sites their reasoning, and admits they back tracked. I have not gone on different topics. If you really believe a surgical face mask is less effective against disease than non medical face masks you are an idiot. Lol all you want, my last link specifically has the CDC clarifying why they changed their stance, and when they clarify they changed it, it means they did. Even if you now claim it is a different thing (it isn’t) the last link does indeed prove they did change their stance, which you claim they never did, and they did indeed call face masks ineffective. You’re wrong. Say the words. June 9, 2020 at 4:16 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 1 0LOL Deflecting again. You literally said that “CDC says masks won’t protect you” that’s a very misleading statement, when you compare it to “a specific type of mask is more advisable for healthy people” keep trying to goalpost shift, you got caught in a lie, liar. June 9, 2020 at 4:22 pm Rosenblatt says: Like or Dislike: 1 0bob – “I will note real quick, Craig is definitely wrong on this regarding the cloth mask. So, yes, I agree on that front Craig is absurd.” I appreciate you agreeing with me in your second post, but do you mean Polar or Interested is wrong, or both? Craig didn’t post. Also, your KOMO has NOTHING from the CDC in there saying MASKS DON’T PROTECT YOU.. There’s a quote from one doctor from UC Berkley, but not even a comment that he even WORKS for the CDC. Your ACTUAL CDC link has their position changing from “no recommendation on mask wearing” to “okay, wear a mask”, but SAYS NOTHING ABOUT THE CDC EVER CLAIMING MASKS DON’T PROTECT YOU. 1 link doesn’t even say what you claim. 1 link you misrepresented. And yet after all that in your first post, you agree with me. You also disagree with Craig on this topic, but he never posted. June 9, 2020 at 4:43 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1“LOL Deflecting again. You literally said that “CDC says masks won’t protect you” that’s a very misleading statement, when you compare it to “a specific type of mask is more advisable for healthy people” keep trying to goalpost shift, you got caught in a lie, liar.” And they did. No, you are trying to twist this. They did indeed change the position on whether the public should wear ANY mask. It was not just related to surgical. While they ALSO said that wearing surgical masks wouldn’t help, due to people buying them up and stopping doctors from getting them, they indeed did say face masks were not required, in their own page, THEIR OWN PAGE, they said: “” In light of this new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.”” Meaning, in light of, they now recommend. They did not recommend it before. They definitely said face masks were not needed, as per my immunology source later on. This is getting tiresome. June 9, 2020 at 4:51 pm Rosenblatt says: Like or Dislike: 1 0Not recommending healthy people wear a face mask is different than saying face masks don’t help in reducing the spread of the disease June 9, 2020 at 5:48 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1“Not recommending healthy people wear a face mask is different than saying face masks don’t help in reducing the spread of the disease” They did indeed say face masks were not effective. Whether they said surgical or not, which the facts bear out, they said it was ineffective. This is not debatable. I grow tired of you bending over backwards to say when someone who is right is clearly wrong, and you are not pointing out anything with Jon. June 9, 2020 at 5:51 pm bob says: Like or Dislike: 0 1I notice you skipped over the retraction of the hydroxychloroquine study, as well as the known fact that transmission was occurring, and the CDC knew it, and they said there was no evidence of transmission. Care to comment on those rosenbrat? You and Jon are trying to twist this to say they meant surgical masks, and no, they told the public not to get masks. They later on realizing they botched it said, no we meant surgical masks. They even clarified the reason for their change, by saying now they recommend it, if there are other known errors, and it looks like a duck, it is clear they messed up and are back tracking. You, are an idiot, and if Trump’s campaign did this you would call it out. TWO STUDIES HAVE BEEN RETRACTED the only two that showed hydroxychloroquine was not effective, ALL THE OTHER STUDIES, showed it WAS effective, now those studies take point. Did they just botch that? Or was it maybe to fight Trump? Maybe this is why I have a problem with “fake” fact checking, you go the other way on nonsense. Let’s call out the real errors of the CDC and the WHO. June 9, 2020 at 6:02 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 1 0That’s because no one was talking about hydroxychloroquine but you you railroading troll. You literally do nothing but fill each page you decide to comment on with nonsense that no one asked for, it would be funny pointing out that you’re lying left and right except you’re actually so deluded you think you’re being truthful. Or you’re a russian spam bot, I haven’t decided. It’s always whenever Polar and Craig have been made to look like idiots you just happen to show up and start spamming, what a coincidence.

Also *SHOCKER* highly touted by Fox News, so I can see why he’s considered so credible by ol’ Craig here. It’s much more likely this is all just a worldwide plot by the liberals to scare people into hiding in their homes for perpetuity rather than there actually being a pandemic. I don’t know what to do with you ostriches any more rather than just patiently wait. June 5, 2020 at 4:52 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 6 9What are you lying about now, Craig?

What it is about is virus prevention technologies. I brought up you and Craig’s past lies because you are making unconfirmed statements as if they’re fact, and with both of you having a history of dishonesty on these boards, I think anyone who sees your comments should be aware that both of you are proven liars. Or are you still pretending you weren’t lying about the YouGov poll from January where you claimed 90% of americans were more afraid of terrorism than climate change? That was a lie. It makes sense you’d want to try and silence the person who keeps pointing out your lies, but I’ll be right here, Polar.

Pull up weedmaps.com and look up every dispensary on that list. I just did. There is one dispensary shown, the One Log Tree House, that doesn’t say it’s medicinal. This is an error, as you can see literally every other one on the list shows as medical and recreational. You can go to the weedmaps California map as I suggested and see every single dispensary is both medicinal and recreational. Dispensary: a room where medicines are prepared and provided. It’s literally in the description. Again, I actually smoke pot, I’m not just someone reading an online article and trying to argue that I know the business. Craig has a bias against marijuana and I doubt he’s ever actually even been inside a dispensary. The licensing required to open a dispensary in California requires medicinal.

My God…From a someone presumably younger than a boomer saying that…It’s like you just never paid attention. Boomers were and are a great generation. Each generation is in some way, especially the ones in the late 1800’s until 1950’s. These people went out and died in horrible jobs for other folks, and made the industrial revolution, they actually signed up for the military during WWII, bought bonds, and supported their fellow man, they fought the civil rights “war”. People from those generations were absolutely about doing things that were about others, not just themselves. You are twisted as all heck. Younger folks have not had near the trials and tribulations, nor have they taken on anything near to the same (WWI WWII Spanish Flu, Civil Rights, Industrial jobs like welding which initially made people blind, coal jobs, jobs that left them disabled at an old age but they did it anyway, working skyscrapers in NY and the death rates were horrible). These folks were about doing whatever it meant for not just themselves, Reason.
