The article only restates what the order says. And calling it a Mandate vs a suggestion is be coming. in line with what its authors called it. The order doesn't differentiate where it does or does not apply.
AS I said, it was written by cubicle dwellers, with no thought or understanding of any other type or kind of lifestyle. And this was on day one, more "one size fits all" decrees will be coming.
I just bought a small A, I just want to be able to use it, somewhere other than my driveway.

I found this article that discusses the mask mandate as it relates to Federal lands.
Mask mandate on Federal lands

It said things may vary from one location to another.

In short, those guidelines when outdoors is: stay socially distanced as much as possible, if you have to be near people from outside your household, wear a mask if within 6 feet.


We should all want to use common sense and follow the CDC guidelines, and wear a mask when needed to keep ourselves and others safe, instead of looking to the letter of the law about whether one is needed while camping. The faster we get through this pandemic the sooner we can forget about wearing a mask.

My common sense tells me that all masks, short of the N-95, are useless because they don't stop any virus from passing through the material and they don't seal tightly around the nose and mouth to contain the virus. Screen doors on a submarine or a chain link fence to stop mosquitoes come to mind. I am all for proven methods to stop this virus but wearing a mask has not been proven to do anything positive other than being a feel-good method.

I have not seen one scientific mask study favoring masks. I have seen one scientific study saying masks aren't effective (Denmark study). Wearing a mask to beat Covid is pure symbolism, like wearing a colored ribbon on your coat to fight a disease.

Folks, please stop panicking over things found on Faux News. Everything there has been carefully spun to throw you into a rage. Go to the source to get information that is actually useful. Your blood pressure will thank you for turning Faux News off.

Oh it has already been under strict enforcement for a year now. Many have paid the ultimate price. The mask is for you to avoid enforcement along with the people you interact with.

I discovered the most informative news when I saw 'Danny Deck Chair'

Great way to escape all the controversy today as a lot of work went into this movie. It starts with a guy who wants to go camping flying out on a fuel guzzling commercial flight.

I am with you wonderingaimless. I have boondocked on Public lands many times in the west especially remote desert BLM lands and never seen a ranger. Only time I have seen a ranger in western national forest is the Tahoe NF in 2000 and she was operating a speed trap on the highway going to Frenchman's Meadow Lake. Usually local sheriffs deputies patrol the Tahoe and Plumas NF. I always have several mask with me in case a johnny do good citizen wants to make a self important issue out of it in the wide open spaces. The people imposing mask requirements violate these restrictions themselves wholesale according to MSNBC, CNN etc. I saw it on the news. Burp.
