RE:The Ongoing Battle to Convince Nudists to Wear Face Masks

I wear my mask indoors when I'm checking into the resort. It comes off with the rest of my clothing outside. It's not difficult to maintain six foot social distance while tanning/lounging on the patio or using the pool. I've been the only person in the Jacuzzi when I've used that and would put the mask back on if I had any business in the clubhouse.

I wear a mask, although I would prefer not to. It is my opinion that the wearing of a mask is for the best of society and disease control. It ranks right up there with the sexual disease prevention in the best for the society as a whole. We all have to live with this pandemic and need to help the others in our population to survive it as well. It is our duty to society and fellow man to do so!It is true that it mostly protects the other individual but if I'm not aware of being infected yet, it will help them to remain clean as well. One can infect soo many without knowing it that it is what is driving this pandemic ....

Well worded, Thank You.

Only problem with that is masks are more effective in preventing infection from the wearer than to them.

Good point. And I'd add that the "six-foot rule" is only good in "still air" environments like indoors, and when people aren't likely to shout or sneeze. Outdoors, you've got wind to contend with ... those little demons can travel downwind quite a distance.

The main point of masks is to prevent you from infecting others if you have a very mild infection of which you are not aware and in the period before symptoms appear when you are already infections.
In my opinion wearing a mask is unnecessary when you are alone but is common courtesy towards others. In not wearing a mask you are openly showing your contempt for the well being of other people.

Another point to be made is that our responsibility to protect others from the virus does not end with just putting on a mask. It must be worn properly. Both nose and mouth are to be covered and the mask must be of at least two layers to be the most effective. A mask with vents is not appropriate either because the vents let out the particles the mask is intended to contain. This can be a challenge for those of us who wear glasses because they tend to fog, but there are different designs to try.

So long as we have idiots refusing to wear masks, the longer we have to live (or die) with this virus. It will never go away when we have selfish people continuing to spread it.

I agree with the above statements! It is being shown every day now how the wearing of the masks does stop the spread. The states that do not or have not required them are now the most populated states with the virus and the residents are still not heeding the warnings. These people are the most selfish Ba____ds on earth! I do not like saying this, ..... but nature will take care of these people in the end but, unfortunately, there will be a few causalities along the way! I pray for the causalities ....

This is less about nudism, and more about an idiot who thinks C19 is a hoax or still believes that the young don't get it.

Thanks to the strict use of mask now we can have a normal life and travel a long ago in China. People here were very disciplined and cooperated to stop the virus propagation.
