Re: where covid masks are mandatory

I hope there's another shortage of masks so they go back to telling us that they're unnecessary again.

How would it help anyone to know whatever little information an implant can gather, i.e. heart rate or VO2 ? Why would all governments go through the unimaginable trouble of creating the biggest conspiracy in history to know my heart rate?

By the way, you mean "too healthy", right?



I don't like calling people names, so I will not qualify Flying Kite, but the idea of such a conspiracy sounds like total and utter lunacy to me.
In 1931 Hitler idea was called lunacy, you know what is happened, people followed him like sheeps...About chip, they can cut now silicon as small as 2nm, in 1mm can fit 500 transistors...is not about only heart rate, is about what you consuming...we are subject of marketing for them...

Nah, I'm almost certain that the vast majority of people who hang on EF already heard of these theories. Bill Gates, microchip/vaccine conspiracy theory etc etc etc.

I'll quote a character from one of my favourite movies...

Re: where covid masks are mandatory

Apparently masks are now required of everyone at Geneva airport. Basel airport, being in France, has the same requirement. Zurich airport behind the curve only requires masks of some employees.

Re: where covid masks are mandatory

I just came across this article in The Local, titled "These Swiss cantons have made masks compulsory in schools" dated today (August 4th):

https://www.thelocal.ch/20200804/the...ory-in-schools

It's short, so I'll copy and paste it here in case others don't have a subscription to The Local. Apologies in advance if this is information that was already widely known.

------

"Masks have been made compulsory in high schools and vocational education centres in the western canton of Neuch‚tel.

Neuch‚tel has followed the lead of Lucerne and Geneva in requiring masks in schools, although unlike Lucerne students do not have to pay for their own masks.

Neuch‚tel State Councilor Monika Maire-Hefti told Le Temps “Wearing a mask will be compulsory in post-compulsory education, if one cannot respect 1.5 meters of distance”.

In practice, Le Temps reports that masks will be compulsory inside all high schools and vocational centres in Neuch‚tel as distance requirements will be difficult to comply with.

Masks will not compulsory outside, while Maire-Hefti also said “”in some workshops that are large enough, however, the students should not wear them."

The canton has ordered 120,000 masks for students to wear in order to comply with the requirement.

Will masks be required in other cantons?

Authorities in Bern will meet on August 7th to discuss a mask requirement.

In Thurgau, authorities will also make a decision on wearing masks before school goes back.

What are schools in other cantons doing?
Schools in Basel Country have said they will provide students with masks in high schools and vocational education centres in situations where distancing will not be required, although wearing masks will not be compulsory.

In Aargau, schools will not require masks but have installed plexiglas where distance cannot be kept."

Re: where covid masks are mandatory

From Monday 12.10.2020 onwards to at least end of January 2021, mask/face coverings are mandatory in any and all indoor public spaces (with few exceptions) in CANTON BERNE

This includes also train stations and platforms, librairies,malls, museums,restaurants (unless you're seated and remain seated)

Also see:
https://www.thebharatexpressnews.com...sks-in-stores/


On a personal note, please please please, if somebody tells you to lower your mask for a moment to make it possible to lipread....

Then please, take a step back and do so!

Life is already shitty and excluding enough, when one suffers from any hearing impairment.

The mandatory masks make it near to impossible to communicate with the hearing people.

Unless one knows to sign, which I for one, eventhough totally deaf.....don't know!

Is "indoor" missing from that news flash?
Public spaces are also outdoor - parks etc.

That must be making life really tough atm.

I've finally been persuaded to go for a hearing test after realizing that I can't hear people very well and have been relying on sight to supplement my crappy hearing.

Apparently they are also mandatory when giving birth in France and highly encouraged/mandatory in the CHUV. I havenít given birth myself but I can say pretty confidently I would not put up with that nonsense. Really. No matter oneís personal opinions on how much masks help and whether or not we should all be wearing them, requiring a laboring mother to wear one is ... Iím lost for words.

I had an argument in pharmacy few days ago back home with a pregnant woman (plus another older child), who was pretty aggressive towards an old lady (basically not respecting the distance the old lady politely asked for).



Her argument basically was - I have an asthma, you can't imagine how difficult it is for me (she seemed fine), I won't wear it properly for you or anybody.


The fact that she is in risk group (she was overweight + asthma, bad mix for covid) was lost on her. What I want to say - some people have properly weird view of the world, revolving around them.


As for giving birth - it is a complication, but for safety of mother, baby and medical personnel, in normal cases I can't see the reason not (and I've witnessed the pains of labor of my wife first hand 10 months ago). As for why - normal masks don't limit breathing as much as people think they do, there were few guys who did marathon in masks and their times were same as without masks.

If you read the article the French have been doing some preliminary research and the odds of post partum depression are higher when giving birth with a mask. I absolutely struggle to breathe in a mask (asthma) and though I wear one where it is required, I absolutely would refuse to do so during labor. If everyone else in the room is wearing a mask the protection is quite high.
