You've obviously chosen the wrong Big Pharma employer. Mine says I must stay at home.
Do you think I had a choice? Been part of two layoffs in two big pharmas in the past 2 years. I take what I get...

Maybe I will go back to your employer someday, but still bitter.

Re: Mask dodgers

I've been noticing a lot more mask dodgers on my way to class lately. Granted, if I'm sometimes in a rush to get to the bus, I'll forget to pull my mask up, but a friendly reminder is all I ever need if I don't remember it myself. The people who just don't give a crap though should be tarred and feathered.

I'm not positive, but I think at that point the inspector has to call the police, and then the police can issue a fine?
Correct.

Up until the mid-90ies select train conductors got special training, were sworn in and handed a gun (requirement: must have completed basic military training, which includes weapons training). This gave those employees policing powers on the trains with powers equal to Cantonal police.

Today's transport police are armed as well but they have limited powers.

Hi all!

Just curious to see how folk feel about the above on public transport?

Do you a) give out dirty looks and continue to do so until they leave the bus/tram etc. b) confront them? or just ignore them?
I ask this as I have just travelled home with six of these selfish buggers and I'm personally sick of the self entitled few who think they are exempt from the rule.
If the ZVV,SBB,ZSG want people wearing masks on the public transport why are they not doing more to enforce it?
I laugh at the mask wearers, doing as theyre told without understanding the negative health risks of wearing the mask. They think these N95 masks will stop a disease which is 0.1 micrometers in size, when even the CDC states they will not stop COVID.

*Sigh!* *Big Sigh!* your virus maybe 0.1 microns... But! You are not breathing in or exhaling a dusty likkle virus all on itīs onesies. Itīs suspended in a substrate, like your slobberīnīsnot.
I do have to laugh at the CO2 fearmongering, if that were true I would be long dead or a gibbering brain-dead wreck from wearing a helmet when riding my bike.

Therefore masks, even the most flimsy ones, are a great barrier, so stay safe and wear a frikking mask.

Re: Mask dodgers

Compliance seems to vary between Cantons.
I have been on quite a few trains this month in Canton Bern. Everyone was wearing a mask.
In fact the only time I have encountered someone not wearing a mask was on a bus in Basel.
In the UK compliance is very poor on public transport. I would say roughly a third of passengers don't bother. They get dirty looks from the rest of us, but very few people actually challenge. OK, some will have a medical reason, but not many.

Pity you didn’t consult with Snopes before you posted.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ef...ss-face-masks/

Mostly False
About this rating
What's True
N95 respirators with valves do allow unfiltered exhaled air to reach others, increasing the risk of spreading infection. Cloth and surgical masks do not protect the wearer from airborne infection. Cloth masks also get dirty easily, which is why OSHA and CDC recommend regular washing.
What's False
However, contrary to the posts, OSHA and CDC have not recommended against wearing face coverings of any kind. Also contrary to the posts, cloth and surgical masks are not entirely ineffective because they prevent the wearer from transmitting infection to others through droplets. Surgical masks also protect wearers from getting potential infections via droplets. In addition, people who wear these masks are in little to no danger of breathing in too much carbon dioxide.

Re: Mask dodgers

Pandalicious, Actually, the CDC does recommend wearing masks:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...coverings.html

Update 28 June 2020.

Oh and by the way, a quick google shows that the document you referenced purporting to be from the CDC has been fact checked by several outlets as likely a fake, and the info it contains judged to be mostly false:

https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-f...-idUSKCN24I2PP

https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/f...ke/5486229002/

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/ef...ss-face-masks/

https://www.kbtx.com/2020/07/17/frau...-social-media/
(The above shows the image you linked)


The clue should have been the use of all caps. Generally not the CDC's writing style.

The CDC has addressed many aspects of the use of respirators for professionals and face masks for the public. The agency discusses pros, cons, correct usage, incorrect usage - and risks of incorrect usage. It's an evolving discussion. Take a deep dive into the real CDC site sometime, it's interesting reading.


ETA:
Snap, Bowlie - you got there before me.

As I undertstand it, the mask is mainly to protect others And if everyone wears one, they are as protected as possible.

Don't worry about CO2 levels, there has surgeons wear them all day long without dropping dead

Excuse my ignorance. Are there any real medical reasons to not wear a surgical mask? I was under the (wrong?) impression there is no good reason to be unable to wear one.

physically unable to put on / take off mask correctly
learning disorder or other psychological issue that is made worse by wearing mask (e.g. panic disorder connected with breathing, claustrophobia)

This is the list we have from uni (med student). We've been told that if asthma / COPD is severe enough to need oxygen therapy, then a mask may cause psychological discomfort (worry about ability to breathe, but not an actual physical problem). But then the person will be wearing an O2 supply....

Re: Mask dodgers

Well I've had enough of the mask Nazis snitching and staring at me on public transport. I just stare back or when someone is rude to me I am rude back. Why everyone on this thread is accepting this bullshit is beyond me, a so called virus that the govt uses a PCR test that cannot even detect the virus - don't believe me? look up who invented the test and stated it cannot be used to test for viruses. Positive results can be turned on and off by adjusting the PCR amplification multiplier.
Just shows how easy it is to propagandise the sheeple who will comply out of fear and cowardice. Remember when it was for just a few weeks to flatten the curve? Now looking at forced vaccinations (no vax no pay as an Australian bureaucrat suggested yesterday) , removal of any family members by police to Covid centers. Never happen I hear you say? Its the ing law now in Melbourne and God knows what next. No problem enforcing this tyranny, plenty here to do the stazi dirty work.

Snitching? How very mature!
So when one of your family members get the virus because of a selfish Moron like yourself,perhaps then you will realise why the majority of people have been respecting the regulation and putting on a damn mask!
