Mask Questions in North Square

This 311 user writes, “What is the point in wearing your mask over your chin? Literally every one of these 6 men except one has their mask over their chin. Literally, people walking by have their mask over their chins and not their nose and mouth. Are we trying to end the spread or not? My entire business is shut down because of this but these clowns can stand outside without their mask? My business will go out of business after this summer and no one takes COVID19 serious, I’m just flabbergasted right now is all.”

  1. I feel sorry for the 311 users business but he is a disgrace. Imagine taking a picture of adults just socializing with one another?

    People are allowed to talk to each other. Not against the law. This is getting crazy.

  2. I think I can see the point. Business is shut down while people are still getting corona virus. Can’t go back to work until people stop getting corona virus. People without masks in public are likely to either get or spread the virus. So these guys aren’t helping the situation. We’ve got to realize that we won’t stop this virus, like we can’t stop the regular flu viruses. We had a flu epidemic a few years ago, but the city didn’t shut down. The issue, we will always have corona virus. We can’t wait for it to go away, it won’t. so allow the businesses to open, and everyone can protect themselves or not. Their choice.
