Bottom line is that you will never convince an anti masker anti vaxer of anything as they grab hold of any unfact checked info they can get their hands on that allows them to justify living irresponsibly during the pandemic. They will not listen to facts that will inconvenience their lifestyle.


Ignorance is bliss

Talk about a 2 way street lol.


Don’t bother. Anyone who gets their information through Google doesn’t want access to unfiltered info. They just want to be spoon fed propaganda that fits their beliefs. Probably uses Facebook too.


I get a lot of info with Google searches -- good info. The Mayo Clinic site for one. I also still access a good bit of Real Estate information the same way.

No, you can't believe everything you find on the internet, but you need to be savvy enough to weed out the trash and put your faith and trust in solid information sites (Mayo Clinic, for example). So, not everything on the internet is filtered info . . . . or "propaganda" (LOL) --- you've just got to be smart enough to know the difference, right?

The trouble with masks is they don’t work very well. They keep,out dust and many allergens, but virus bugs are small enough to go right through. So if you actually come in contact with a spreader, the simple cotton mask will not protect you.

This wasn't intended to be a discussion on the effectiveness of masks or other methods of preventing the spread of covid, but an informative post about how masking is being handled in Mexico.

Your mask doesn't protect you, it protects others from any germs you may be spreading, their masks protect you from any germs they may be spreading. Yes, they are imperfect but they are one of the best tools we have right now if everyone wears them when in close proximity to others and wears them correctly. I keep having to ask people I'm interacting with (especially men for some reason) to cover their nose. Why don't people understand how important it is to cover your nose? When you are tested, where do they take the sample from? Why do you think they do that - because that's where the virus is most likely to be.

My apologies to TalleyHo for continuing this topic.

None necessary, you made great points and reiterated that mask wearing in Mexico, (and anywhere) doesn't hurt, and could help.

Unfortunately masks, vaccinations, lock downs, and the various variants are politically charged and the news we hear is filtered and purposefully sculpted to fit a narrative.
I participate in another Mexico oriented forum (apolitical) where people post photos and discuss travel and life in Mexico. Mask usage in Mexico from what I can read and see is far from universal. I assume is it much like mask usage in Maine and most other states in the US.
90% of folks on this forum, regulars all, have predictable views on masks, vaccinations (which were promised to end mask requirements and the spread of the virus), and restrictions. That's unfortunate and it's not reflective of reality.
At some point a healthy caution became a neurosis. It's well past time to start questioning the news we hear.

I don’t like masking but I do. Better safe than sorry even for someone like me with two Pfizer shots and the booster.

I am in the US and am not sure when I'll get back to Mexico. I am not an RVer. I joined this forum when I was contemplating buying a property in Mexico. That didn't work out and I decided it would be just as cost effective to rent when I was in Mexico. We did get about a month of "vaccinated people do not need to wear masks" here but then the Delta variant hit and since not enough people had gotten vaccinated at that point and everything had opened up, it changed the game back to square one pretty much. Our stats here in Oregon are bad but when you look at a county breakdown, the worst areas are in the rural part of the state with the Portland area having much lower incidence - presumably due to higher vaccination levels. Since I'm vaccinated I worry less about being out and about but still limit my activities - fortunately I was never one who enjoyed being in large crowds of people. I wear a mask anywhere I'm supposed to and sanitize my hands wherever sanitizer is made available. My sister has not stepped foot inside a store of any kind since the pandemic began.

We are similar to you in the large groups of people and trying to make intelligent decisions.

Hopefully you will continue to visit this great country, and others, and rent and explore.

Your thoughts and observations are appreciated.
