People still without masks

I still see several people walking on the streets without masks...some people, just won't listen..

Yes, just had a short walk this morning and saw a number of them doing nothing exhausting and with no masks on. These people just care about not being fined and nothing else and that's why there should be no exemptions from wearing the masks while in public.

china has not mandate face civerings when outdoors.

UK govt. "Scientists conclude that risk of catching virus outdoors is minimal".

I sense we are seeing a worldwide drift towards outdoor face coverings voluntary.

Well drinking beer with a mask on would be a challenge.
if there's thing more annoying than people who can't follow the rules, it's the holier than holy perfect people judging and publicly shaming other people.

More seriously the Benefits of wearing masks outdoors is highly debatable. Small chance sure, but it's never gonna or even supposed to be 100% but slowing down the spreading.

Inside supermarket, bus train for sure to protect the staff from customers' coughs etc makes sense. Wearing the mask on your walk to supermarket in many cases mostly empty sidewalks and breathing through it making it wet and very uncomfortable and less effective when you need it indoors doesn't make much sense. Only reason to do it is to avoid the risk of fine and those Stomp citizen reporters saving the world.
