RESULTS ARE IN: Do You Believe Cloth Masks Are Effective At Saving Lives?


Last night I asked all of our readers:

NATIONAL POLL:  Do You Believe Cloth Masks Are Effective At Saving Lives?

NATIONAL POLL: Would You Like To See "The Squad" Voted Out of Office?

Trending: Jill Biden Gets Mocked On Twitter After Showing Off A ‘Parade’ With Just Three Cars

Well, the results are in and they are FASCINATING!

If you're as eager as I was to see the results, I have them for you right here.

Please enjoy:

*NATIONAL POLL*:  Do You Believe Cloth Masks Are Effective At Saving Lives?  Explain below...👇
I believe they may help in certain situations, but not necessarily saving lives in most cases. If an individual has underlying health issues, they should be very cautious about places/stores they frequent.

No, they can only hold the virus or whatever on your face!
No
Like trying to stop mosquitoes with chicken wire.
NO
Absolutely not. Too thick layers of underwear and jeans can’t stop much larger fecal particles in a fart. One thin layer of paper or thin clothe can’t stop atomic sized virus!
No
nope!
ABSOLUTELY NOT
No. It is to keep the fear alive.
NO
No
No. There is a lot of evidence that they harm the wearer without protecting anyone else. If I go out into the community and I'm not sick then i can't make you sick. If i don't have measles, I can't give you measles. If I don't have a cold, I can't give you a cold. If I don't have civid-19, I can't give it to you. If I am sick, i need to stay home. The mask is unnecessary.
No, why would they all the sudden be effective if they weren't in the beginning
No
No, cloth masks are ineffective, can aggravate existing health conditions, and can even cause health problems.
NO
No, we are killing the good germs we need to help our immune system
A little, it's like using a gill net to catch a fly.  99.9% will get through; however, the mask will stop spit, droplets, etc. of the virus.  So it helps somewhat. Plus it makes everyone aware of the danger of this virus to the medically comprised older citizens.
No
No
No, it's all about controlling the masses and making us sick and tired. They can't control healthy people, so making us sick on all levels has been the agenda for 50 plus years.
Even if it's a maybe, why would'nt you wear one, but don't dis those who don't mask up - freedom and respect are America.
If the person wearing a cheap masks feels protected then have at it but I am no wearing one so others can feel doubly protected.

No
No. I have read a lot about them and most people (experts) say they don’t help. I will wear I though.

No
NO
Not really
I don't, but to keep people feeling safe, I make myself wear them.

No this is the method they are using for the nwo

Absolutely not!  No!
Can’t hurt!!
NO
Cloth masks can help from spreading virus and also from breathing in the virus, IF the person is showing symptoms.  Most are NOT sick but we have to wear mask at work and public places. I hate this mandatory crap!
no
No
There nothing but bull shit just another way of making us do there will ! If anything they prolong how long this thing will last to get past the election !!!
no
Yes
NO,DR. TOLD ME THEY ARE NOT GOOD AS YOU BREATHE BACK CARBON DIOXIDE AND IN GENERAL THEY DO NOTHING. REALLY NOT GOOD IF YOU HAVE A HEART PROBLEM
No
No. Besides physical problems, masks are creating a psychologically sick society with people becoming hateful and violent.
No.
No
YES
They could have some value but really have my doubts too. No one seems to have done any testing in this area that I know about..???
No they hold germs
I don't believe they are failproof but I do believe they help. I've seen the numbers go down in my own area when mask mandates are enforced and will continue to wear a mask when in public until this nightmare is over or kills us all!
No
No I don't, staying at a distance might but I don't know about that.
No
NO
No
No,because I see gatherings where the people pushing mask are not wearing or wearing incorrectly
NO!!!
Yes. I don’t wear it to protect me, I wear it to protect you.
YES !!
No
no
No, the size of the virus is smaller than even the N95 mask.
I do not believe cloth masks are effective. I’m 59 years old and I’ve never in my life had to wear one due to a virus. This is obviously political
No

yes
NO
Yes
Hell NO

Yes
NO
Yes
No. They are just making people sicker.

No
Yes
No
I do not really have an answer for this because the experts still are on the fence on it!  If many of them are on the fence, then how are we supposed to know.  It’s very frustrating, to say the least.
Yes

No, I feel like mask mandates are just an effort to take away our freedom!
I don’t really know, but I wear mine every time I go into a store or other facility full of people. I have a lung condition called Sarcoidosis. It is presently in remission, however I choose not to push my luck.
No

no
No
No!  You need to change them at least every two hours of wearing them! They collect bacteria and can cause oxygen levels to go down. Mask are not meant to be worn all day long!!!  Ask any medical person.
No... They do not stop the virus because it so small... Besides this whole thing is a lie drummed up by some people who want to ruin our country...
Yes
They are useless, and damaging.
Only if YOU have a contagious illness is a mask effective in HELPING to prevent infecting others.  The mask mandate in UNCONSTITUTIONAL though, no matter how you look at it.  The LAW says medical must keep HIV, hepatitis, tuberculosis, etc.  CONFIDENTIAL!  Even THEY are never FORCED to wear a mask in order to obtain food, etc.  This shit is evil as fk.  NO - I don't agree with being an ass kisser.  MANDATE of masks is WRONG!
No they are useless
No. They can make breathing more difficult for those with breathing issues to begin with.

No absolutely ineffective!
Saving lives: no.   Possibly "slowing" the transmission: maybe.
No
No
No they are completely ineffective. You have to have some kind of filter even if you use a dryer sheet.
no
No. I actually believe that they pose a greater Health risk because of hypoxia, breathing in instead of expelling germs and they take away any identity as a human being.
No. They're not keeping anyone else safe; they just make you sick by breathing in everything you're breathing out.
No
yes...can't hurt...
No Cloth Masks do not help Saving Lives CLOTH masks do not filter anything whatsoever. As you exhale, you are ridding your lungs of contaminants and carbon dioxide. Cloth masks trap this carbon dioxide the best. It actually risks your health, rather than protect it. The moisture caught in these masks can become mildew ridden over night. Dry coughing, enhanced allergies, sore throat are all symptoms of a micro-mold in your mask.
No
No but they help
Somewhat

Yes
No!!
No
No
No, masks are not going to make a difference on whether you get sick or not
No, the virus is in the air and can go through cloth
No.
No

Yes
No. Taking zinc and C keeps us safe. My husband had it in April. We did that together in high doses. I sat next to him on the couch with no mask. I never got it. I’m so OVER this mask thing.
No
No
No

No. When wearing a mask your brain is deprived of oxygen and you then turn into a democrat/socialist/communist!
No
I think they probably help some but would not keep anyone from taking a virus, in my opinion.
No. The size of the holes in the fabrics are larger than the COVID virus. Thus making the masks worthless.
No
No
No

No ! Masks are for the sick and those who are working in the Medical Field for possible protection.
No
nope
No
No
NO
No
No, they have no effect whatsoever and cause other problems in the process.
No.  The virus is smaller than any holes in the mask.
YES
I dont think any mask help cloth or other i would wear them around. The elderly but i still not think it does help open up the economy please everything
No!  I do not believe any mask saves life.  There will be health issues to people who wear them all the time by the time this is over.  God did not give us the breath of life, our nose and mouth to be covered up for long periods of time.  I for one can not breath in one!
No

I honestly don’t know but I will where it in any business that requires it.
Probably. If you are within 10 feet or so of another human with a virus, or if you have a virus infecting yourself, a mask would slow the transmission of air born virus particles.
No they are not. I find it very hard to trust anything the leaders are saying because of so very much discrepancy  in positive test results.
Hell No!
NO!!! I do not think that wearing a cloth mask is doing anything to save lives, I do however believe that it reduces the amount of oxygen we can take in.  This is completely ridiculous!!! They say that obesity is one of the leading causes for death with COVID-19 so why would you want to take away the air that people with that complication need when it is already difficult for them to move around and to catch there breath? "IF" this is meant to "save" lives, I am pretty sure they need to rethink there strategy!
No they’re not effective, and are a ploy at implementing Dictatorship over the people
NO
No. I don't believe in maks.
No
Yes
Mic.
NO
No
No .. I think they prevent my natural immune system to function as God intended!
NO!
Yes. I know there is a lot of controversy but it protects those who wear them. So many refuse to wear them and I think it contributes to more people contacting the virus.

I think they may help slow the spread along with distancing and hand washing but I don’t think they’re necessary with Covid 19.It has a very high survival rate.
No. OSHA mask can only catch .03 with the N95 this virus is .01, it will go straight through a mask.  Breathing in too much carbon monoxide which will cause headaches and problems for adults and children.
No, I don't believe cloth masks are effective.  Until our governor made it mandatory to wear one, I didn't even own one.  Now, since I have been wearing the cloth mask, I have been feeling awful.  I'm dizzy, I feel weak, I have no appetite,  -  it's just one of those I don't feel right things.  I blame the mask.  I think it holds more germs in than it blocks out.  Even with washing the mask each time I wear it.  My doctor doesn't seem to have a clue what is wrong with me.  He gave me the Z-Pack and I took the last one today.  Nothing has changed.
No! They are only making us more sick!
No. I think you are breathing bad air in. We need God's air to breath. I believe this is about control.
NO
Yes
No
Certainly very effective in particular cases. But there is a risk of losing the normality of the lungs by wearing it for too long.
No, For the simple reason if they saved lives they would have been mandated for H1N1, Flu and every other virus.
No
yes...keeps people from spraying on me. helps me from breathing in their spray.
No. Masks have been lab tested as ineffective at preventing the spread of any virus.
No, they are hard to breathe through and you inhale your own CO2, which is very bad for you. They also cause your immunity to be weakened.
Yes.
Although I believe the entire medical community Is not in agreement on this issue.
General wisdom seem to be that some kind of face surface protection Is better than none at all.

no
yes
no
No
Not on any level.  There will be severe health issues that arise from the forced use of these useless masks, not to mention the severe economic issues.
Nope

No
Not really
No
yes
No
No
If they can help at all I think it is worth a try
No
Ordinary masks and masking material is totally ineffective.  Proper virus resistant surgical mask are effective at what they do.  The probability of any mask in preventing the transmission of the virus for rational human behaviour, i.e:  social distancing, is circumspect.
No - I do not.  I think it is impossible for them to block anything - going IN or going OUT.  Scaring us into wearing face masks is to exert power over the public, and seeing people wearing them keeps the fear factor going.
Fuck no
No
Absolutely NOT
No masks are not saving lives.  This virus is not any worse than your typical flu.  This whole COVID thing is a bunch of BS and is being propagated by the liberals and the godless and evil among us!

No
No
No, the virus is small enough to go through the fibers.
Well yes. Put it has to be a protector. Simple cloth work to a point, by adding a another layer of protection, makes a good protective mask , my wife an I use the micro 2.0 for the extra protection
Yes
NO.
All masks weaken the immune system.
I believe that staying out of eathothers faces and spaces is best so No to all masks
No
no i do not believe that masks are effective at saving lives, only harm your breathing
Maybe in rare cases but generally not.
No
Darrell
NO
NO! It is all political to get rid of our rightful president!
No. Most people are touching their faces way more then they normally, and adjusting mask  Some just wear incorrectly. Your own respiratory droplets moisten mask after short time, making it useless. Keep your distance, wash your hands, stay away from sick people!
NO
No. It’s just postponing the inevitable.
No they will only prolong how long this will last. Another reason Dems pushing for them
No
No they were not designed to stop the virus they are for nuisance dust
N o things are better off letting us breath normally, we have to many other medical issues because of wearing this mask!
Dry mouth which causes teeth to dry out and have more bacteria. Hard to breathe when your breathing in the same carbon you put out of your body, also makes you touch u our face more often.
I don’t like masks period! I feel this whole COVID thing is overblown. Look at the past flu like SARS, Mers glue and even the Spanish flu in 1918. The death rate has been about the same. Obama when he had the flu‘s during his term he did nothing. I believe the country should open up fully. And with a vaccine on the cusp I don’t believe they’ll be any problems. I’m tiredI’ve seen the Dems run the country and ruin it and run it into the ground
No
Yes.  Absolutely.
If they're good enough for the medical community, they're good enough for me.  The masks may not work 100% but it's better than nothing.
for those who are at high risk and believe they do then they may save lives
No. The communist democrats make this mask covering a political issue. Scientifically speaking, wearing masks do not stop transmissions of viruses.
I believe they can reduce risks of spreading COVID, saving lives is still questionable,  high risk folks like me need to exercise high level of precautions.

No
Not necessarily.  However they might reduce contagion in larger cities.

No
No

No, especially for people with existing lung conditions. Masks restrict air flow, and do nothing to prevent the transfer of viruses.
No
Masks just add to the Pandemic porn and do nothing

Cloth masks are useless!
It’s for sheeple!
NO
No
NO
No and experts around the world are proving so but the media is ignoring
No, not the lives of those wearing them or the lives of those we are around. It reduces your oxygen and you are breathing your own germs and it does not prevents germs from going through them to others.
NO, NO WAY
No
No. The very best medical Masks only catch microns down to 10 microns but the virus is .3 which is about 300 times smaller than the best masks can do.
No I don’t but I wear when shopping out of respect for the store owners request. Does not fit close to face and materials breathe so air has to pass through.
No...Even dust gets through when I've put my shirt over my face w/dus construction!
Maybe!
NO !!
No
Possibly
NO!
Yes
Yes
Hell no
No.
NO! I feel they do more harm than good.
In crowded rooms, maybe, but not outside
No
Yes, I believe they are effective
No

No. I don't.
No.... they don't cover your eyes and you can catch COVID through your eyes not to mention you're breathing your own breath over and over and that just causes me to hyperventilate!
Unbelievable that a piece of cloth will save us? I don’t think so! I wear it in respect of Essential Workers.
Absolutely NOT. Wearing masks is also a part of satanic indoctrination, whether you consciously know what you're doing or not. No way, not ever will I wear a mask. And what do they say is the survival rate if you get Covid? Yeah, pointless. Even doctors wearing them in surgeries only wear them to prevent their spit from getting into an open wound - not from catching or spreading something. SMH
No
no
No, I think it is total bullshit.  It should be a personal choose if you want to wear one or not.
I'm not 100% sure,  but I'm willing to do whatever it takes to end this PANDEMIC!!  I know in Texas, when they make masks compulsory, the numbers have dropped.
NO, they can make you Sick.
No they are not safe
Absolutely - when in the presence of the vulnerable (?) - I do not know who the vulnerable are - thus I wear a mask when in the presence of those who wear a mask. I respect their right to protection and I do not wish to force my liberty on anyone.
No
No
No
No
Somewhat
No, not completely
Somewhat...if a person is sick and coughs on others the virus may spread, BUT there are so many ways that the same person can spread such a virus; the percentage by which the virus would be tampered down by the use of a mask is minute.
No
No
No
No.  They are effective in keeping sick people from spreading germs
NO
No, they collect the virus to you and put you at even more risk.
I have mixed feelings, not certain how they are.
Not in the least.  The Covid virus is small enough to easily get through these masks.  These mask are a placebo to make people you can’t think critically that they are safe.  It is also a way to get people to do what their told so when their told they have to take the vaccine they willing agree.

They're not as good as the medical ones but can help some
Absolutely NOT!!!
No, I thought the N95 had a water proof layer that prevented liquid from being inhaled or exhaled.  The other part is the proper way to wear masks and the proper fit that will seal firmly to ones face.  I see so many that do not cover the nose and have gaps around face, nose, and under chin. Then there are so many that refuse to wear a mask.
Yes.  At this point anything we can do to HELP PREVENT Covid spread.
They believe they are saving many lives.
So i comply.
Not sure but I choose to wear it.
No, not really
NO.
no.the virus is to small.and i beleave the virus is being spread by the tests.thats why shcummer was pushing them so hard.
Not really. Cloth masks are breathable. To me, this means that they can allow microscopic organisms in and out of the mask. If you can feel your breath coming through the mask, it’s not doing anything for protection. Masks are supposed to be at least 3 layers and stop all particles from getting in and out. So not breathe should be felt through the mask. But then you are breathing in your own germs and expelled air which, I think, could make you sick all by itself.
Absolutely No!!!  I wouldn’t put a mask on my dog .  Breathing in God given air is the healthiest way to supply the proper oxygen necessary. To restrict this is detrimental .
Yes
No I do not
NO
Not at all!
No. This is simply a gimmick for the corrupt DEMONcrats and other liberals to have Americans under their control.

no
NO!  There are too many lies being told & I fear Stephen Hawking was absolutely correct when he said the internet was going to ruin life.  I don’t believe Fauci, Birx, Gates or any of them.  We should all be listening to actual medical doctors who treat patients!  Yesterday I had to wear a mask while shopping at a military base for almost 3 hours & I started feeling ill after about an hour.  By the time we arrived home I was feeling worse with no energy.  Masks will make you sick & not from this paid for virus!!!!!!!
Y
No not really. It’s just a test to see who will follow the government; blindly....
No! Carona virus particles are smaller than the cloth weave and can go right through!
They can’t hurt.

No, is just control.  Rebreathing your own waste - CO2 is bad.
No
No!
YES
I think they can be when used properly and by all.
No because you breath in more germs that even possibly the virus
No
I think some are somewhat effective but not all.
I believe only sick people should wear a mask to keep their germs to themselves , it’s unhealthy for a healthy person to wear one
No I do not
No I think this whole covid 19 thing is B S.
no not really
No
YES
Perhaps in the sense that wearing them makes us aware of the ongoing dangers of this pandemic and possibly induces us to maintain more distance from others. If all people wear them, it suggests to me that outgoing droplets are diminished in number and ability to travel, which added to a whatever degree of protection a potential receiver of incoming droplets can receive could reduce the viral load of aerosol droplets in the environment. Bottom line - who knows, it might help.
No. I have seen an article by scientists that explains that the particle of the virus were too small for a mask to be effective at all.
Yes, viruses, mostly, attach to mucus membranes and enter the body. By covering the nose and mouth it contains mucus from an infected person from spreading to healthy persons from coughing or sneezing.
In order to better protect yourself from a virus your eyes would need to be covered.
No
No
No
Yes
Absolutely not
No
No
No
Debby
Yes, they do

Yes, I do believe they help. But only if the wearer covers their nose and the mouth. I see too many people covering only their mouth.
No
Yes, they keep our own germs contained in our mask's instead of becoming airborne.
I’m not sure
No.
No, they do nothing!!!
No
No they are not. If a fart can make it past two ass cheeks, your underwear and jeans, how do you expect a cloth mask to protect you from a virus? Furthermore, why wait FOUR MONTHS to "require" masks? That's like telling men to wear condoms to their wives baby showers. And cloth masks are dangerous. Humans are NOT MEANT to breathe back in their expelled carbon dioxide
No, they are useless!
No, I think they are a complete waste. The Covid molecules are much smaller than any cloth mask could block
NO

No, they trap germs which can make you sick. Besides, they're claustrophobic and make it difficult to breathe!
No
Nope
Only for people who have existing serious morbidity health issues or have demonstrated signs of illness and even having said that, only with medical grade masks.
They only stop between 15-25% of the virus from passing through the weaves of material.  N95 stops 95%, but it is not designed for daily use outside a lab or hospital.
I’m really not sure.
Absolutely not! They are cloth. Moisture, inability for people to use sterile techniques. Complete waste. Protect immune system zinc, vit D3, and eat healthy. Sick of this media drama
No I do not.How could they possibly be effective if they do not filter the air you breathe in or exhale.In my opinion no one should be required to wear a mask if they choose not to wear one.If you want to wear one then wear it, if you don't then don't.I do not and will never believe this pandemic is as bad as it is made out to be.
Yes
No, it's effective in disrupting our country's economy, and our lives. If I wasn't going to vote Trump 2020, this stupidity would have convinced me

no
On the fence !!!!!
NO- Just a pain in the ass.
I am not certain.
No
Oh I’m sure they do some good.
No
I don't believe any masks save lives. I think it's all a hoax to attempt to keep Trump from being reelected.  We need to get back to our normal lives, everything opened up, schools back in session,  no masks, no social distancing. Send Fauci and Breix packing, without a paycheck or retirement. Let Bill Gates and George Soros pay them.
sandra
No!!!
YES, it can't hurt.
no
No masks
No
No! Only endangering your life....

They aren’t saving anyone if they aren’t being thrown away after every use.

No
No
NO!
Kansas secretary of health was just caught lying about masks.  Their data showed that the areas with no masks were doing better than the areas with mandatory masks.  So he changed the axis scales to make it look the opposite.

Cloth & surgical masks have been studied and proven by the NIH, CDC, OSHA, WHO & probably 100 other scientific bodies to NOT protect you from airborne particles such as TB and CoVID19.  

Industrial and healthcare guidelines have been written and mandated with this information for over 20 years.  The Science and facts just cant change overnight because they have no other answers.
NOT one bit! It’s absolutely ridiculous! You don’t have to be a genius to figure that out! However, there is a reason and that is very transparent.
No, I don't think any masks are effective and in fact are more detrimental to your health.

No
Not at all. Forcing a healthy person to wear a mask all day can cause a host of other respiratory illnesses much worse than covid-19.
Cloth masks are virtually worthless as a barrier to anything smaller than a flea.
Safety is always good to practice.
No! I don’t think masks of any sort are needed!
NO

No
No. They don’t filter. They are more harmful to healthy people.
No
No
Only if you can’t see light through them...
No
I don't believe any kind of masks work unless it's Firemen grade.  It's just a bunch of BullShiff and also to see the sheep in this country.....
No
no
Absolutely not!  I think they cause more problems than anything. How can it possibly be good to breath your own CO2 continually not to mention the moist breading ground of bacteria
I don't know.
No
No, not filtered.
No, I believe that wearing masks are a health hazard themselves. When I wear one for an extended time, I have a hard time breathing after taking it off, it’s worse than an asthma attack.

NO
No
No! I don’t wear one and I’m not planning on. If people that are afraid and wear one I shouldn’t have to if it helps them. I shouldn’t give them anything that I would have if the mask they are wearing helps.🤷🏻‍♀️
Not sure! Better safe than sorry!
No. Scientific studies have shown there is no measured effectiveness of cloth mask or even surgical mask against respiratory virus.  (How can their be? There is no standard for cloth masks).  See Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures
No
No
Not really
Not the cloth masks.  There are only 2 that are effective.
NOOOOOO!!!!!!
NO
NO (from sources I researched)
NO!
No not really
NO, This whole thing is a (China & DemoRATS) political hoax, trying to interfere (RIG) the election! They weren't worn with H1N1, etc.
no
No, I do not.
No, I don't believe masks should be used at all.  They are only doing this to see how easy it would be to control the American people.  It's scary to see all of the sheeple.
No. The Virus can pass through most masks.
No
NO!!!    I think it is a fear tactic to control us for things to come, the evil democratic party
NO
Somewhat.
No
No, I do not wear a mask.  I am 78 years old and have asthma, so wearing a mask is hard on my breathing. I go everywhere I like and congregate with friends and family, and I am still not sick with the Chinese virus.
No
No no no oh Lord No
No
no

NO!
Definitely NOT. It’s a mask of surrender and irrational fear
Absolutely not
No
In certain situations. People have enough sense to avoid sick people without our wet nurse government mandating it.
I have no idea.  The "experts" seem to be sure that they are effective now.  Who really knows?



Definitely not.
No
No.  Masks are only 2% effective and cause problems for the mask user.

Yes
Yes I do
No.
Absolutely not ! As a retired 1st responder, the mask's due more harm than good.
Bacterial Pnumonia is real. Wonder what the stats are 🤔
Fuck NO!!!!!!
No. They only help spread the virus.
I honestly just don’t know. I hate wearing them but I comply to get groceries etc. My husband has cancer and i have been diagnosed with an auto immune disease so we are careful but I don’t know about the mask. My son in law was tested for Covid yesterday and I baby sit for them. I don’t wear a mask I just wash my hands frequently. So my answer is IDK!
I do if worn only around other people, for short periods of time.
No because they do not filter anything out.
No. They are useless.
I believe in God only. Masks are absolutely nonsense.
No
No
NO

No
yes if clean
NO. They are more harmful to the person wearing it.
No!  Mask are for the sick not the healthy
No
No. Not even a little!
NO!
No
yes
Only in extreme cases. This is another ploy to divide us as a people. Compare it to the flu. This should never have happened!
No

Not sure but if there is a chance that they are I say wear one.  I do when I am in contact with people I don’t know.

No
I believe they can cause people to get sick because they don’t wash frequently. Plus they are hot on your face which can cause bacteria on your face. Personally I think they are a waste of money and time
No, I think they are possibly increasing the severity of the virus and accelerating the death rate.  Just like what the governors did when they let the virus run rampant in nursing home, even though you had the ships to use for the quarantine.
Only if the one wearing it is sick.  Healthy people don't do anything except reduce oxygen intake by wearing a mask.
No.  The scientific studies say they are not.
I think they are actually making some people sick.
No, I believe they are more likely to make people sick by trapping COVID inside or causing respiratory illness by decreasing breathing ability.
No
Yes
NO!
No, masks doesn’t allow your body to expel in the exhaust and traps junk in the mask.
No
Nope
NO
NO, ITS ABOUT CONTROL COMPLIANCE! Will we be fearful and follow our corrupt government!
No
Yes but they should be 2 layers of cloth. I personally wear 2 masks when I go out. I have surgical masks, 1 cloth 2 layer mask & a pack of 4 KN95. I rotate the 2 & I have no problem breathing. It’s only me & if I get sick, I have nobody to look after my pets or me so I’m super safe for the greater good.
No
NO
Yes we do.
Not sure. We have had many differing views on this.
Some but not totally
No
There has not been absolute proof that wearing a mask helps prevent people from getting the virus and some saying they still get it after wearing a mask.
No.  The virus particulates are minute and simply pass through the weave. It's all about instilling fear and controlling the populace.

NO
No
I don't believe in wearing the masks at all. Where were masks during recent years SARS, EBOLA or any other outbreak? It's all an exercise on how much control will we allow the goverment over our lives.
Yes I do... I prefer one with a filter.
Absolutely not! My family boycotts businesses that require mask. Masks reduce oxygen and are very unhealthy. It should be MY choice whether to wear one or not. I especially do not like to see children wearing masks. I am sick and tired or the fear mongering from the left and from the liberal media.
Not sure
Masks are just evidence of conformity they don’t save people from catching germs
No I don’t. They may offer a small preventive benefit by way of peace of mind to those who are fearful of a virus or who have a compromised immune system that may make them more vulnerable to organisms, but for generally healthy people I believe masks are totally unnecessary and unhelpful.
I do believe they are of help. Not 100% effective but certainly some protection for others.
No
No. They restrict your breathing and can ause more health issues
Yes. My wearing a mask protects me from others who might be contagious.
Only if those who are actually ill wear them to protect others!
NO.
No
I believe they prevent some spreading of germs & viruses.
NO THE COV19 PARTICULAR ARE TO SMALL FOR MASK TO STOP. JUST A WAY TO SEE IF THEY CAN CONTROL THE POPULATION.
No
YES
Yes
No way!
Not sure
no
No I don't

I do not
No
No
Yes. If properly worn and cleaned, whether worn by someone with covid (protects others) or not (protects yourself). But they are not perfect, and will not protect people working in a close environment, such as a small office. And outside, not in close proximity, such as taking a walk, they are not needed!
No
Not effective
somewhat
No I don’t think a cloth mask is all that effective because if it’s not washed daily the virus/germs are still there. Also so people have COPD and any mask interferes with proper breathing. I do wear a cloth mask but not at all happy about it as I am one of those who has COPD plus allergies.
Only a certain kind of mask.  It Must be made so that the virus cannot get thru it either eay
No.  Oxygen depleting masks are already causing lung fungal infections.  Depleting nitrogen to support healthy heart can be an issue.  Re-breathing toxic exhaled carbon dioxide is harmful.  Deprivation of Rights Under the Color of Law act, a legal doc from Dept of Justice, says no one can deprive you of the necessities of life.... I think 02 qualifies.  I have never worn one, nor will I.  My civil rights are being trampled by these blue state Hitler Governors.  Jail Them!!!!!!!
No!  I have lived 52 years on this earth.  I have visited 12 different countries with some being 3rd world countries.  I have lived in another country for 22 years.  In all those years I was not forced to wear a mask.  I have rarely been sick.  The mask is not the answer!!  Eat right, take care of your body and trust that God has our date of death already predetermined.
No
No I don't think masks save lives be it cloth or other!!
At times, but still uncertain regarding Chinese virus
No I don't believe it. The mask can only keep you minimize what you breathe in, not 100% block it. I am allergic to dust and pollen. I need to wear mask every time I get out of my house, but I knew all a long. The mask doesn't help me 100%, because I still feel the dust and pollen in my breath but not as much as if I hadn't wear mask.
I believe cloth mask slow the movement of air from people as they exhale.  If the virus Is spread primarily through coughing and sneezing, then masks should  provide some benefit to slowing the spread of COVID.  Which in turn could help to save lives.  However there are other costs to requiring or mandating that everyone wear masks.

No
No
john
No
No
No!!
hell no
NO
NO
No. If they were as effective as we are being told, why are they not being used in jails?
Absolutely not!!!! I think
we should have a choice. Viruses have been around forever, and no masks were ordered. It’s all political, remove the masks, practice good hygiene, practice social distancing if you care to and let’s get our lives back to being normal. These past 5 months are not the new normal! Period!!!!
No

No.  Not at all.    Fake science.
Of course not - the virus particles can slip through cloth masks without touching the sides of the weave.
Masks most likely help the spread of the virus but adding "saving lives" makes them sound undeniably magical. If they are that important why weren't we all forced to wear them during the H1N1 or Sars outbreaks? Many lives were lost then and no hype at all.
Yes, I believe they are effective in saving lives. I wish more people would follow the rules and wear them to protect anyone they come in contact with.
No if simple cloth masks worked doctors and nurses would wear them everyday to work... but they don’t. It is government control. We never do this for any flu season or tuberculosis outbreak.
No
NO FREAKIN WAY. TOO POROUS.
No about as good as a wire fence to keep out fruit flies and Mosquitoes
No
No! Not one type of mask fake virus others died due to poor health not fricken exposer!
No
I believe our immune system works better than any democrat
No
Any mask I am forced to wear causes shallow breathing due to asthma problems. I wheeze, cough, hack the whole time. Thanks to the MN governor, we are ordered to wear it. I am glad I work from home and choose not to shop just so I can breathe properly
They are effective with a filter but more importantly, they are effective at helping with the fear many people are still experiencing. As a result, there is less stress in those people and less stress results in less susceptibility to disease. It’s a small thing to do.  I do understand why people are so against the mandatory wearing being ordered and all the fear mongering about groups and gatherings which is garbage and a political ploy.
No I don't think wearing a cloth mask does any good.  Most people don't wear them over both their nose and mouth. In my opinion from what the CDC says cloth mask don't keep the corona out anyway. In my opinion it's just another type of the flue and it will run its course. Im pretty sure I've already had the covid 19 virus at the end of last year as well .
Absolutely Not!
No
Not at all.  Cloth masks do nothing at all to stop a virus as the size of the virus allows it to enter through the fibers unscathed.  Nothing but a CONTROL measure by those intent on destroying the country.
No
Yes.
No
No.
Yes

All I can do is believe the scientists, and they disagree with each other.
No! It has been proven that over use, can cause legionnaire disease, does not stop you from getting it, and barely keeps others from getting it. It's a farce! Wake up America! It's to control us, and to keep us locked down! WWGA1WGA!
No. They don’t do anything more than covering your mouth and noise when you sneeze does.
No

No.  I don’t wear unless I have to.
No

No
No
NO we are not sick
Not at all
No.
No
No
NO!
No
No
Yes
Yes
Absolutely NOT! Leftists are using this to destroy America.
No
Definately not!
No
?
no all they do for me is make me sweat and I think I will pass out

Absolutely not
No, get every one to put "TRUMP" in red letters on their masks and the phonyvirus will be over.
No
No. The virus can still pass through
No
No
No
No
Absolutely not ... they are actually a breeding ground for bacteria!
No, that is not even reasonable.
NO...
I believe in Herd Immunity.
Just practice good hygiene .  These masks only hurt the ones wearing them, especially for long periods of time. The particulates are to minuet for these mask to work. They cause the wearer to breath in their own body waste, ie, carbon dioxide & argon... Not healthy.
It seems the virus can actually go through many of the masks on the market. The virus I have been told is usually transferred by hands. When you take off the mask your hands have to touch your face. I think if someone coughs it may help but only slightly. In reality only a very slight help and out of 100 maybe 10 a helper.
No. Masks are detrimental to our health and don’t stop the virus.
No
Probably not much. When the death rate for healthy people is 1/3 of 1 percent, how much difference could it make. If I was 80+ and had health issues I would definitely where one.
no,  and they cause you to breath in your own C. O. 2 this is not healthy to you
No
Could be !
No
No. The masks do not stop any but the largest drops that you put out and don't stop the ones you breath in.
Absolutely
No
Somewhat.
No
No , I believe in herd immunity. High risk people need to protect themselves not make everyone wear a mask.
When I see all of the PPE a virologist wear while trying to keep from infecting themselves, I have to believe these flimsy precautions are completely ridiculous as a form of protection. They clearly are stretching out the timeline of the virus running its natural course and basically keeping it alive and circulating through our populations!!!
No. Only wear it because law passed in town requiring them
No way are cloth masks effective. It's better to breathe fresh air and wash your hands after dealing with people. Legioners disease is on the rise now.
Absolutely not, I believe they are only making people sick from other things. Lung infection, low oxygen in the blood, and so on.
NO
NO WAY IN HELL. THEY'RE A PANACEA. A LIE. STUPID. MAKE ME FEEL LIKE A MUSLIM WOMAN!
No.  I do not
No
Hell no
My research indicates that the virus molecule is so small that it can pass through a cloth mask. So my answer is No.
no0
Helpfull
NO
Nop
The masks are ineffective they may deflect your sneeze or cough to some extent but no better than having the common curtesy of turning your head and or covering your mouth. The masks just give a false sense of security.
Yes, they’re effective at preventing the spread of infection, which for some vulnerable parts of the population means saving lives. The key though is that me wearing the mask is for protection of other people (not myself) - just like surgeons wear masks to protect their patients. When both parties in close proximity wear masks - they protect each other.
No. Fauci said so from the beginning. He’s been doing this since 1985, I think he said the correct thing from the beginning.
I Think its a hoax to transition AMERICANS TO CONDITION & SUBMIT TO THE GOVERNMENT. DISTANCING MAKES SENSE.
No
Hell no, it's a placebo at best. A cloth mask is not stopping anything as small as the virus. Have you ever seen a viral scientist ware a cloth mask, hell no. They ware a encapsulated suit with their own air supply. What I do see happening is people are breathing their own carbon dioxide and getting dumber by the minute.
No I don't believe they are effective.  There are plenty of studies that prove they are not. Also they are against OSHA regulations.
No
Depends on the fabric and fit
Yes Better to be safe than sorry.
No
No
No
Yes, with people with underlying condition, or weak immune system.
NO
It depends on how many layers they have and what material they are made of.
No, we are at less than 1% death rate and that is with the elderly w/ some type of condition. Didn't wear one for SARS or influenza,  why now? FEAR & CONTROL
No
No!
No
Somewhat,  I feel that they may not help much, but wearing them makes me feel safer when I'm around people while shopping or going for medical appts.  It's no big deal to wear them for short periods.  I feel for the people who have to wear them constantly.

No, I don't. Science has shown they do not keep out the virus and they may cause problems that are just as bad if worn too long.
No. I can't breathe in any.
Cloth are more effective than paper masks as long as they are laundered.
No
Not sure if they make a difference.
No! The general society does not wear the mask properly. According to the CDC, we must not touch the mask, adjust it or scratch our face under it because it then becomes contaminated and ineffective. Only in a surgical sterile atmosphere will they be effective. Let’s stop wearing the masks, build our immunities and get on with life as free Americans.
No
Cloth masks are capable for collecting the moisture droplets from the mouth and nose; which can help stop the spread of germs.
In some cases but not all.
Yes

NO
No stop the muzzles
I'm not really sure if any masks help
To be honest, I don't really know. I'm not an expert on face masks and never wear one. But if I had to choose, I would say, probably just as effective as the paper ones, maybe more so since they don't have those little perforations in them, the fabric is solid, so yeah, maybe the cloth ones are better.
No they are not
No. The virus size is so small, masks (unless N95 model) are useless against spreading it. In my opinion, masks are not healthy for many reasons.
no
no
Yes.
No, I only wear one in stores...because I don’t want to get “SHOT” !
ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!
NO!!!
no
NO! I actually think they do more harm than good.
No
No
I don't think they work as great as the left wants us to believek
NO!
Absolutely NOT. This is all about control and shutting us up. This has gotten out of hand, and these elites - Soros, Gates and the Clinton’s need to go to prison.
I think they help.  100% ...I don’t think so.
Not even an iota
No
Not really. The only thing they do is make you keep rebreathing the air that you exhaled according to the so-called experts.

NO

Yes. I think if used correctly with social distancing and limited exposures it helps. It’s not 100%, but helps overall.
No!
Yes
No
Nope. There is NO PROOF a silly cloth mask can prevent the spread of this teeny tiny virus. Sorry. Not buying into it.
No I do not. People are always adjusting their masks which means touching their face mouth or nose
No
No! Very unhealthy especially for kids.. can’t believe my kids are being forced to wear them all day. Breathing in their own toxins all day :(... when I wear a mask it gives me heart palpitations
No, I do not believe masks are effective.
Yes. It stop people from being so close on top of all the other benefits.

Mixed feelings.  But not really
No
Actually I know that some people cannot wear them.  If someone is already ill w/other issues, yes they need to wear them.  If you are not able to wear them, simply stay inside.  The only place I go is Church and I do not wear one there.
No, mounting evidence and studies indicate masks are ineffective.
Yes
No
No
No
No
No I do not.  Those masks to deter germs are about as effective as a chain-link fence deterring mosquitos
Personally it interferes with my breathing. I have compromised lung issues from radiation. I believe my body/immune system will fight for itself as it has always done and build immunities to to fight Any virus!! Viruses can not be cured we all know that!! I do not believe the mask prevents any thing but breathing  properly !! TRUST AND CONNECT to Your Healing properties Source gave you!! No Mask!!

No
No.  I don't see how with the virus being so contagious.
No. Not at all. It's a scam.
Undecided
NO
No
No, they trap moisture and will mold if not washed daily. They will not stop the so called virus from getting through. If it is the size they claim it is. It can penetrate the cloth.
Yes
No
No
No, most people don't wear them  correctly if at all.
Yes
Yes. I hope I don’t breathe someone germs or they breathe mine.
No, they still able to get the virus on them like the other masks.
Yes
No, not at all.
Maybe, I really don't know. Some say wearing masks doesn't make a difference, others say they do. So much lies & deception it's hard to really know.

NO! The only effective way to fight a VIRUS, is through a self contained breathing apparatus, since a mask is not of that nature it’s just a hoax
Nope
No
Only in areas of extreme close contact
To an extent, yes.
Yes I do it is obvious that when we all wear mask the numbers go down.
can't hurt
No. They are not effective for protecting against COVID.
No
No
No cloth masks are useless.  No effective for virus.
I do not know
No. I think virus can get through threads
No, they are to promote fear.
No! Masks are only effective for protecting against immediately inhaling or exhaling potential droplets and nothing more. Droplets can still potentially be absorbed thru exposed skin.
NO. They are air restrictive, germy, can't make out what people are saying, and ugly. They don't stop you from getting virus or giving virus. People are not unknowingly ill. The testers are bogus. Stop all this nonsense and get back to American living. More deaths are happening from other causes. At some point in time we are all going to die. Enough is enough.
Not like we are doing. I’m a retired OR nurse and have worn masks in the OR or in caring for patients with highly contagious illness. The masks we wear for Covid are cloth, probably not being washed daily and the weave is so large that any virus molecule to run through holding hands with 5 other molecules! No. This is Willy nilly control without rationale. Hospital masks are changed for every patient as are our gowns and gloves.
I am not sure, I am recovering from pneumonia so I play safe
No
No they only reduce the chance slightly, otherwise it is control. Its an attempt to destroy President Trumps improving economy. It is also very directed in who it kills, the older at risk. China, Democrats MSM are all involved. Possibly Iran.
No
No‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️
They have used face coverings in Iran 🇮🇷 called burkas for years and it never stopped the virus 🦠 for there country. I’m never wearing a stupid mask for no one . We live in the United States of America 🇺🇸, where we have the freedom to decide what is best for our wellbeing!!
Traveled all over the world twenty years as a military wife and I will never let anyone dictate to me how to live my life ever ‼️‼️
I have no respect for Dr. Fauci, Dr. Brix , nor Mr. Gates‼️‼️ President Trump needs to keep them out of the White House, The White House is the People’s House🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸       Mary Jane Jones Osbon
Not really
I don't have an opinion on any mask but I think it;s time the government stop telling stores and other businesses they have to stay closed and let them reopen.
NO I DO NOT. I believe that it is just a lie. Social distancing might work. To get heard immunity the heard has to be exposed.
No!
I believe it’s to control people with fear! And to continue taking our rights away as they have done from the beginning.  All false information and manipulation.
No
No
No
Cloth masks do very little to prevent the spread of germs and nothing to save lives. Breathing the fibers and rebreathing carbon dioxide lowers O2 saturation in the body, suppresses the immune system, lowers energy levels and ultimately will lead to disease in the lungs by collapsing the alveolar.  I've been an RN for many years and this is common knowledge in the medical establishment. Anyone whom states different is either uneducated in this matter or choosing to spread disinformation for their own agenda.
Marilyn
Yes
NO
Perhaps if you have a compromised immune system but not if you are healthy
No. I have recently observed  mask-wearers and I must say they either pull them down to speak or wear them partially covering only their mouths or take them off and put them back on while in the same room. How does that make them safe?

Not really....
Yes
No.
It's very hard to keep up with this Dr. and that Dr. I'd rather be safe than sorry. If my president says to wear a mask. I wear a mask.
They keep a greater percentage of the wearers germs from others. Not all, but some. If you can stay 3 feet away I feel they are not needed. I’m a nurse and have worked side by side with positive COVID so before they were tested and I believe the mask helped keep me well. But again if I can be 3ft from you-I don’t need a mask!!
Yes
no
Not really
No


No I do not because scientific study says that they make it hard to breath and don't prevent the caronavirus at all from getting to you
No
No, most medical professionals advise that being a VIRUS, the masks do no good whatsoever. I agree with that.
No, if they worked why do we have to social distance! This is all  bullshit. The Democrats are trying to make trump look bad! They discussed me!
No they can not stop the micro sized germs
No
No
No, it is a control thing by the dem o rats
I am not sure how effective they are because we heard for so long they weren't.
Yes I think so

No, I do not think masks save lives. They're hard to breathe in, they keep a lot of CO2 in, and it makes me feel like we're 1 step away from Burkhas.
Yes I do believe cloth masks masks are effective because it stops you from breathing in the virus.
Yes in circumstances of high risk & close proximity

Yes, it covers your mouth and nose.
No
I don’t really know but I personally can’t breathe wearing one. So for me personally, not good. Plus mine is paper and so dirty because I use it whenever I have to but I wear it under my nose and below my mouth as much as possible
Not unless you are actually the person who is sick
nOT SURE - PERHAPS SOME HELP, BUT INCONCLUSIVE
Jackie
Only if you are in a building. Not outdoors walking.
Yes
No, You are just harming yourself by wearing a mask for a extended period if time.  It stops very little germs as experts have already stated. It is all about trying to control us!
I’m not sure; need more definitive proof
No
Yes I do
No
no.
No
It could possibly when in market places with food can avoid contamination. Workers are RE ones to wear and customer in markets maybe chase to wear.
no
No. Useless. It’s all about control
No. It's purely a control mechanism
No.  This virus is 800X smaller than a human hair.  Also, no one outside of heathcare, is wearing/handling masks properly.

No
No, not at all
Absolutely NOT!!
Yes, because you are covering up your mouth and your nose. And people can't breath on you are cough on you.
Absolutely not.  Ridiculous and actually harmful to health
NO
Not sure.
I think Masks are a Joke. I won't wear one. Breathing my own Carbon Dioxside is dumb. The eyes as as susceptible to many airborne things, why aren't they covered. %#&%[email protected]*%$
No
No, they are nothing more than a means of control.
Yes
No. The medical doctors said at the beginning of the pandemic wearing a mask would not protect you from the virus. Even Dr Fauchi said it.
No because. You’re breathing in and out no fresh air
I don’t know for sure.
NO
No, they are not protecting any thing through, but this it s just the political flu and I guess I can keep the dems out some better than the virus!!

Absolutely 💯% NO
if there was a real pandemic the yes.but if its all about the demorats then they lie out their arses.
No
No, when I visited Mayo Clinic for an appointment, my doctor told me they were told not to wear cloth masks.
Yes. It stops some if not most of the plume from coughing . Talking and. Breather
NO! It's all about controlling people and restricting rights.
no. it's all hoax
NO!  They even say on the boxes these mask not effective against Covid 19
If a mask isn't effective, I'm taking no chances, so I wear one in public.
No.
no
No
No. Carries more germs...Fresh air healthy
No I do not!
NO,I do not think they save anything. They are hard to breath thru & the co2 is being breathed back in, not healthy. If they truly did work the numbers would have decreased by now. It's only about control.
No.  They may block droplets, but the virus can pass right through.  They are a means of control.
Yes
No
No, mask were not meant to be worn for long periods of time. Each mask has a specific purpose and until now, there were never cloth mask.
Nope.
No
No
No
No I think that the C.D.C and the Democrats are trying to get us ready for one world government and soloists city's and taking away constitution rights
Not really because the virus can enter in other ways, such as the eyes.
Not sure.   rather wear a mask than perhaps infect someone
I have no problem wearing a mask in public, saves on wearing lipstick
No
No. No. No. My understanding is that even though "droplets" can be contained, the aerosol(sp) is released and is airborn and can penetrate any cloth or even hospital mask. N95 only 95% effective against aerosols. ALL viruses have aerosols. That's what infects you.
NO BECAUSE AIR CIRCULATING IN A ROOM COMES RIGHT TO YOUR MOUTH AND YOU BREATHE IT IN. AIR CONDITIONING AND HEATING VENTS MIX UP THE POLLUTANTS! LOL. MORONIC TO THINK A VIRUS CAN BE COMPLETELY AVOIDED!
Not convinced that they do.
Nooo Those masks aren't effective and scientists know it. Why don't the lab scientists use those rather than the hazmat type of mask.... Cause those flimsy,cheap masks DON'T Effin' work.
No
minimal yes
No
no i don't,because i don't think the pandamic is as real as they have made it out to be.

Yes
No I don’t. To me it’s just a test to see how many SHEEPLES will do as they’re told.
No
No, they might help the sick not to spread it as much, but the size of the virus makes me question if they do much at all. The healthy People, it depletes their oxygen especially after wearing for a forty hour work week. Also, it is unhealthy in the aspect of people in general - don’t change or wash their masks enough and that is a bacteria collection device!
No

No

Somewhat effective
Yes
yes
No
No

No
I believe we have a cure with hydroquine, wearing mask will help but this needs to be given
NO
No.  Masks are porous, germs have no problem going thru the masks.
Absolutely Not
Yes-not perfect but worth the hopeful protection
No
no they are demoralizing, and any “ mandate” requiring the wearing of masks based on an emergency is illegal, and unconstitutional.
I believe that it depends on the quality of and how it is made, handkerchiefs no.
No, I do not believe that cloth masks are effective at saving lives, at least not for the corona virus. There are differing opinions, but I heard that wearing masks to repel the virus is equivalent to using a chain link fence to repel mosquitoes.
No, they trap toxins & breed bacteria. They restrict incoming oxygen & are too porous to filter out any viruses.
No.
A cloth mask on your face to protect you from a virus is the the same as wearing a condom on a penis made of mesh fir protection against communicable diseases and pregnancy!
   Are you going to give a mesh condom to your teenage kids?

I believe they have value, yes.  Otherwise healthcare workers would be getting sick in greater numbers.  I believe it’s a terrible thing to not allow churches to meet & yet we allow the protesters to gather in huge numbers, we allow funerals for some but not for all.  Yes, I believe masks help.
No... democrats testing how many ppl will be sheep and who the wolf's are.
No
No
No
No
I believe they have the potential to save other people’s live if I wear it. Everyone would have to wear one to keep me from getting it,but,it’s hard to wear one long enough to even shop.
No. Cloth masks are not effective. None of the masks are effective without a filtering device added. If I can smell things through the mask then the germs can get through as well
No, I believe in FAITH over FEAR
Not cloth masks
No
Not really
No
No! We have gone thru no such mandates and  Or shutdowns in the history of our country! Medically we have always no matter what taught as Nurses and MDs To wash your hands properly using proper technique and timing   say the alphabet thru will washing to get timing right and secondly stop spread by always coughing into your elbow or a handkerchief to prevent droplet spread, Docisl distancing isn’t to keep the cough and droplets away and using the above stops the spread effectively and stops the need of a certain goal distance as cough without stop at the source could go further than 6 feet and impossible in some locations!! It is an attempt to gradually insert control over our lives and to get you use to you must do what I say mandates to return
I’ve our constitutional rights! Just like next removing guns and your right to bear arms! How is that working in states making those laws taking away our rights! It is not because the criminals are getting worse and more are dying as the law is instilled in Democratic led states but the citizens can’t have guns!  Is they are arresting law abiding citizens! Mandates don’t work and the constitution  does!
I don’t really know
If everyone covered their face when the coughed or sneezed it would probably be just as effective.   My thought is why haven’t they mandated it every time the flu or some other killer virus hit.  So yes I guess it helps some by making people more aware.
No limit intake of fresh air and not giving lungs fresh deep breaths and inhaling CO2 back in the body
No
no.
I believe this virus has to run it's course just like any other virus that has ravaged the world.
No
No we been sold on bill of goods
NO
Healthy people would stay healthy if sick people would wear mask or face covering. Mask should be mandatory for sick people and optional for healthy.
No
No, I think they are not effective.   Plus you don't get enough oxygen when breathing through them.
No
I think for the time being it doesn’t hurt for people to wear some type of protection to protect the people other than themselves
Many "experts " say that a piece of cloth will not stop viruses. I agree.

No! People do not wear them correctly and they keep touching them to adjust them. The mask should be changed often and must be washed. They can lead to other illnesses as well. Besides I like to see smiles instead of sadness in peoples eyes.
No
No, the particles are much smaller than the holes in the fabric.  They really don't stay in place consistently.  You cannot eat with a mask on and the virus does not wait until you finish eating to start coming out again.  The human body was designed to protect itself when properly cared for which includes getting enough sunshine and living a stress regulated social life.  The mask is meant to intimidate and regulate the person, not the disease.  The disease was man-made and it can be strengthened to punish those who do not comply.  The second wave can be much stronger than the first.  A vaccine introducing a designer virus is more of a danger than a help.  Viruses mutate faster than vaccines.  Vaccines are dangerous and more deadly than the virus itself.  Especially in the hands of Bill Gates and Dr. Fauci.
No.
Absolutely Not
No.  As a welder I know certain masks are required for certain chemicals.  The variety of masks that are allowed, let the virus through, or around, and don't do the job!  Besides, people don't use clean masks all the time, and keep catching things like Legionnaires disease from them!  Also, Antifa and BLM aren't dying like flies from the lack of masks!

No,  breathing your own carbon dioxide can’t be good . Wearing a mask makes me touch my face more, pulling a mask on and off while touch everything in a store, door handles, railings... the gathering of germs in your mask. COVID is a teeny tiny virus  that passes through the material in your mask like a mosquito through a chain-link fence . Last,  I can’t help but notice liberals around the country telling vocal conservatives to put their masks on.  Form of control to silence one side,  because a mask sure as hell doesn’t work on Covid 19
No
Not for healthy people. The should only be used for those who are sick. Even then I’m not sure of their safety
Minimally if at all.
No I don’t. I think all they are doing is giving everyone a false sense of security and showing the communist politicians we can be bullied into submission
I believe to some extent
YES
Not at all.  It's a farce brought on by the fake media!
No. In my case it actually causes more breathing problems. People don't generally go around coffing and sneezing on each other and those who are sick stay home already. It says right on the box of medical masks that they don't prevent the spread of disease.
No. They simply make people feel like they are making a difference.
No
Yes
No

In some condition like in surgery to protect the patient.  If you know you have a virus to protect other people.
absolutely not, virus particles are too small
Yes
Yes
NO! I believe that our bodies are amazingly made to heal themselves and that by avoiding germs we are telling our immune systems that we don’t need it. So it will become weak with the lack of exposure to bacteria, viruses, and germs. So when I am exposed it will not be strong enough to do the job it was made to do. I am definitely an anti mask wearer and am supporting businesses that do not require them in SD.
No I do not
No, they are too porous
No
No- they are a politic tool- have not and will not wear them.

In fact the vast amount of the public feels v this way!!!
NO!  Only for hospital workers.
Yes, but only if everyone is wearing one!
No, I don't think they're saving anybody.
They are effective as they need to be.  I feel safer wearing one even tho I know they are not the best option.  But the only option some of us have.  I have some I bought at the drug store and use them once in a while for a change.  The cloth one is a little hard to breathe thru.
No
Yes to some degree, but should not be mandated.
No!
HELL NO
Im riding the fence on this one
Not really sure, but I don’t think so.
No
Not at all. They make the wearer themselves sick by breathing their own germs all day long.
I’m 81 and I think wearing them for long periods of time is more harmful to the wearer.  I also believe in the herd effect helps so much more
Not at all
NO
If you can breathe thru it, no. Air comes in, air goes out. I think it may help though.
Does your underwear stop a fart what good is the cloth mask except rebreathing you're on air until the virus 19 sets in
No
NO!
Yes - even if it prevents any of my germs just a little, it is worth the precaution.
I’m not sure if they save lives but we wear our mask when we go out in public because it might make someone else feel safe.
No
No
No
No
No. In fact I believe it puts the wearer in more danger by breathing carbon dioxide.
No
I'm very doubtful of any effectiveness of a mask saving a life.
Surgical masks are the best because they fit well around your mouth & nose (the ones used in med offices & hosp.)
No

No
No.  They restrict our breathing and make us less healthy.
Not really
Yes
I have no idea!  Possibly if someone is ill and they have to go out,..it might benefit.

No! Actually wearing cloth mask creates moisture which creates a fertile field for collecting & building a contaminated area from which you are drawing in that bacteria with each breath. Few if any virus is spread primarily in the air. Hands are the most likely source for spreading any Virus.  Frankly I am not yet convinced that we even have a Pandemic. We have had maybe nine pandemics in the past 300 years, While we have had an Influenza epidemic almost every year since the 1800's.  I know that in my location, persons that are laid off due to the supposed pandemic, with no medical/laboratory experience have been hired to  process the swabs & then report results. it is for this reason that I do not feel we are getting REAL results.


No
Yes

not at all. The weave is far larger than the virus
Yes

Not really. Have to wear them to go in stores so we do.
NO
Maybe in a large crowd. I’m not convinced it’s needed in a area where there is a no contact area.
I really don't know.
No.  People that wear mask can still get the virus.  It is  minimal measure at most.  Then, I believe wearing mask all day creates other issues by having limited air exchange and skin issues staying damp under the mask.
No. If they were, we would have been instructed to wear them back in March.
No
No

I think they may help a bit but are not very effective. Here in Florida the death rate is 2 per 1000 people. I don’t feel masks are needed with such low numbers. The common flu is much more contagious  or so it seems. Open up with no restrictions we can’t  hide from this forever.
No. And they create other issues with breathing less oxygen and create a place for bacteria to grow.
May help some to prevent spread but a lot of people wear the same mask over and over or wear then wrong.
No I don't
No
No
I think they cause more harm than good…it’s not healthy…we are not supposed to be breathing in carbon monoxide, which is what we exhale…it’s like putting a plastic bag over your mouth and we all know those come with warnings on them
No,
No
Better than nothing at all but I think this whole pandemic is exaggerated  
Its politically driven to try to keep Mr. Trump from winning.  The left blames everything on him
No
With all those running around without masks I'm not sure a mask matters I will take my chances no mask

No.  Too many leaks
No
No it hasn't been proven they help at all. In fact they can cause other health problems.

No
No
No
Yes
No
No!
No, masks are just a diversion.  People are forcing masks, and then sitting back laughing at everybody wearing them!
NO
No
Yes
No
No
No
No I don’t believe they are effective
No
No
No and reports out of Europe indicate same
No...you sneeze, cough and breathe that back into your lungs!
No. They are a way of controlling us

N95 mask, properly fitted and worn correctly will protect the wearer.
No for all other masks.
Any other masks are as clean as the fingers touching them and fiddling with them and sneezing, coughing, or exhaling through them.
no
I believe they r better then the cheap paper masks.
No
No
No, you need to breathe fresh air not Your own air.
No
Yes
Yes, but it's not just the mask. The people that wear them also are more inclined to follow other guidelines as well which is probably more effective in preventing the spread.
No, they are nothing more than face diapers collecting all the toxins your body is expelling through your lungs and forcing you to rebreathe those toxins.  There are no scientific studies to prove that masks work.
No. If you are sick. Stay home.
Nope
YES
I do, but I wear cloth masks with filters.  They may not be as effective without filters.
I do not think they are effective.  I think it’s a control factor and you’re breathing germs back into your body.
No. Virus particles are small enough to pass through the cloth weave.
No
No.  Breathing your own carbon dioxide seems risky at best and dangerous at worse.  I struggle with masks.  I feel suffocated and I suspect it’s from my low heart beat and blood pressure.
No. If you can breathe in the virus particles are so small they can get in anyway not to mention your eyes. The virus survival rate is so high, I refuse to comply with out stupid requirements in Michigan and believe S Dakota has it right!

I think they help with the fear of the virus as much as protecting people from it. Whatever works for you. Myself, I wear a mask.
No
No
No
Yes.  Cloth masks reduce the possibility of spreading germs thru everyday conversation with others.  Very few people maintain a 6-foot distance and even with that a certain amount of "spray" is transmitted to others while talking near them or when coughing or sneezing near them.  I believe masks are important part of fighting any virus or allergens.
No
No. Once they are wet from breath condensation, there is a wicking effect.
No it has been proven they are not
NO
No
Only if you are at risk. Otherwise its only lengthening the virus duration. Its here you are going to get it. You either develop antibodies or you die.
Science hasn’t proved it.
No
No.  Masks are porous.  Makes US Citizens look like residents of China.
no
No, they do nothing and top doctors who are being silenced by the media back this up.
No
Absolutely not!
Absolutely not!
No, just like Fauci said in March nothing has changed the science he sighted is still relevant. People
Reuse their masks, they touch their face , they crumple it up in their hands and put it in their pocket for later
Only if they have filters
No
No! Cloth stops nothing!
Yes
no
No
Yes!  A mask on my face may save another person's life.  I don't expect that the mask would save my life.
NO
No
Hell no
Depending on the mask.  The masks for general public, No.  Too many leaks!  I personally grind and sharpen lawn mower blades and chain saws.  If you grind for two hours and wear a mask, you still blow black boogers for a day after. It may stop some granules, but not all.  Now germs and diseases are much smaller, so they can get under the mask much easier.  Maybe, but not all coughs are caught if wearing a mask.  That may be all they are good for.  CO2 can destroy your brain cells very quickly and that is what the masks does.  Makes you breath your own breath, time after time, breathing in your own CO2.  Overall,  They do not keep you from breathing in bad stuff, but probably keep you breathing in CO2.  Masks do NO GOOD for this!  Show me different.
No and they may cause health problems.
No
I rather be safe than sorry.  I believe you have to do what makes you feel safe.
yes
No they are useless
Yes
No
No
No not according to doctors that have treated successfully many patients with HQ
Yes
Japanese have worn masks for a very long time. Which seems to me to be magnetic so if a person is sick they are less likely to infect someone else.  I will not wear one in my own home unless I am sick and could infect my husband. We are both elderly. So seems to me "can't hurt".  Wear one in public in the hope of not bringing home something.

Not really because they are denying the full amount of air that the body needs.
NO I don’t believe masks save lives
I think washing your hands is much more important
No, they harbor moisture and people end up getting pneumonia
I’m sure they help but we never wore masks for the flu or any other illness
Not for Covid. The virus is so small it goes right through most masks.
No
No
NO!  They are pushed to make you sicker and to easily identify the people who are patriots of freedom, we are now the minority, WE are so easily seen in public because WE do not wear a mask!

No. I think the left is leading us around like sheep going to slaughter. It’s all a political thing from the left. They’ve ruined lives, businesses but they don’t care.
Yes i believe using masks indoors and where social distance is not possible is effective in controlling the spread of COVID
No but social distancing is effective. Masks area control
Issue As you can see when fauci bloviates about them.
NO
Yes, any restriction will help.
Yes
How am I to know? There is no real true information that I can count on receiving to tell me anything, therefore I will rely on some good ole fashion common sense... I am well and do not have COVID or have had it and got over it and if I don't have it and get it I will be like the 99.5%, I will die or I will recover. It's not going anywhere! My government cannot keep me safe from a virus BUT THEY CAN TAKE MY LIBERTY. So some can stay home, wear a mask, convince themselves that they are safe but please let me live the rest of my life!!! DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME???
No
No, they are non-effective
No. I feel I’m breathing my carbon monoxide and I’m not getting enough oxygen. It’s definitely bad for my health to me. I’m a healthy person and I feel healthy except for when I’m wearing a mask.
Don’t know
Not sure
I do not!
NO
No
NO.
No
Absolutely not
Yes
NO
No I don’t! I refuse to go anywhere where I have to wear a mask! I think this whole pandemic isn’t as bad as what they’re saying! I think, had this not been an election year with President Trump up for re-election, this virus wouldn’t even be here! It is all the Democrats plan to make sure the President isn’t re-elected! I feel they’re goal with all of it is to get mail in voting that’s the only way I feel they can win. They are the true enemies of this country!
No
I use a cloth
Not really
I think mask should be optional no one wears a mask during flu season
Yes, but only if covering nose and mouth. Too many wear on their chins!!
No.  Most of the microns of disease are so much smaller than the pores in the fabric
I am not a sheep
No they just deprive you of oxygen and can make you hypoxic
No, masks as currently used (and reused) among the general population are of no value. In fact they give a false sense of safety to the wearers. And, they cause a multitude of negative side effects - both physical and mental.
No mask is effective! N95 are limited if not properly fitted and may still allow virus to get through! Only wear one in stores. Or at work to "protect" my patients on top of a face shield which interferes with my vision!
No
NO
Absolutely not.  Cloth is too porous and if anything it traps germs and acts as a rebreather.
NO
No ..damp breaths harbor the virus
No
No
No
Yes
I am not totally sold on it yet.  I think in future we may find they do not protect.
No. Not even the doctors know, they can't agree with themselves from day to day. Why would i believe anything they say!
No. Not at all.
No!! It’s a way of seeing if the Democratic Party can control the masses!
No
I think we are being conditioned to do what , when, &how. I think that wearing a mask breathing in your own carbon dioxide is this just as dangerous to a person has the coronavirus. I do not think that the coronavirus is any different than any other virus that we’ve ever had. I think this is a man-made scheme using the coronavirus to accomplish and Agenda

Doctors don't even agree on this issue and you're asking me?
I’m not a scientist, but if the consensus is to wear them then do it.
Not necessarily
No it has been proven Covid droplets go right through masks.
No. I feel they can actually cause more harm than good.
No
I do not believe they are effective at saving lives. I actually don't believe the so called experts. I believe this is nothing more then a political stunt fabricated by the left to destroy President Trump and this up coming election.
No not at all
No.
People who are sick or at risk should wear the masks. I feel that it is still a free country and individuals should decided to what to do. On the other hand, once decided for them, they should also respect others’ decisions and social distance unless asked to do otherwise such as someone wanting to shake their hand! We can make our choice but also respect other people’s choices.
No. I believe it is all about power and fear.
No
I do not. I used to be a nurse. I believe in herd immunity.
Not really
No- Virus particles are small enough to pass through the mask. If water can get through it a virus can get through it. The only thing that would truly protect you is wearing a fully contained Hazmat suit. So the cloth mask do not work but create health issues by wearing them for extended periods because you can not breath in enough oxygen that your body needs. Also there are many - like myself that have extreme anxiety issues by having to wear them that creates a whole different type of medical issues.
Yes

Not at all because if they were we would have stopped the virus!!!

Yes
It would seem that science, logic and reality dictate that masks are detrimental to the human habitation.  Had God found it necessary to shroud us in masks, in His ultimate creation, He would have made us with a face coverings.
No
No
No
Yes
No
Yes, I strongly believe masks helps to curb the virus..  Isf people would take responsibility for their actions.
No.  I don’t believe anyone is washing them daily and the virus is too small to be filtered through cloth masks.
Yes. All mask helps , but you have to keep them on tell you get to a safe distance. Protect yourself and others ( we all have loved one out there , help us help them )
Masks do work in a sterile environment, but not out in the open air.  Even if they did people don't change them often enough.  To many studies have proven then don't work in a non sterile environment.  People it is a virus it has to run it's course.  If your ill stay home.  If you have a health condition that makes you more likely to become ill stay home.  If your out and about wash your hands as often as you can and keep you hands away from your face.  Just use common sense if you have any.  Don't be a sheep in this world.  We need to be smart as the wolves that are trying to take this country down.  Rise up America and fight back.
Nope there a waste
No, the virus particles are so same they travel thru the mask.
Yes and no
No
No, But it does protect the vulnerable.
Yes if used properly
Not sure but I don't think it should be mandatory. It should be voluntary depending on your circumstances.
I believe there is some good in wearing a mask. Doctors, nurses, etc wear the paper masks often.  It isn’t for looks.  If a mask will reduce the risk of possibility spreading or getting the virus I will wear one.
No, effective at hurting lives!
Yes. To an extent. I hate wearing one but because I work in health care I have to. I haven’t gotten sick yet though. So yes they do work.
No I don't.I think zinc and vitamin c to be taken by everyone would be effective.The masks are designed to see how far the liberal lunatics can lead us.
I’m not sure
No
Not sure.. probably better than nothing..
It’s laughable to me that people believe masks in general do any good. From the way they’re worn to the sheer ignorance of the people wearing them. A sad day to be an American.
No
Doesnt matter if you wear a mask.  It is a virus and will be here for a long time.  There is no cure.  It is just like the flu.  Give u a shoot and hope they get the right strain once they have one.  All anyone can hope for is is to get a mile case of it.  You will get it.

I believe that masks are only as effective as the person using them. I don’t have a problem using them but I don’t believe they should be mandated.
No
No.
Hell NO! It’s a farce created to see how far the sheeple will allow themselves to be led by the nose!!!
Yes
No
No I think it is government overreach.
No
No
IDK since there are some who refuse to wear them, quite a few wear them incorrectly. I believe COVID has been here since last fall, so many were exposed and spreading it BEFORE we knew it existed. And many anti America governors refused to acknowledge it at the beginning of knowing it existed.
NO!
No they are a way of controlling us ! They leak air  they let air in what a joke.We are not mice we are men . We were not made to be put thru a social exercise set up by commies to control the free American's that we are.We were born free we are free of government control till we hand it over to them.Wise up our freedoms are being taken away !!!
Not effective
No
No
NO!!
No
No
No
No if you notice people rearrange the mask because they are not comfortable in summer heat , so when they take it off then back on they have helped all the germs,if you will, all out of the mask you have been wearing so then and their mask is already covered with the virus inside and outside.
No
No

No
As a person who's removed asbestos, No.
No.  The most recent scientific studies have shown that they are both ineffective and can help spread the virus.
It’s analogous to putting up a wire fence to keep out mosquitoes.  It doesn’t work.  Masks are political.
no
Absolutely NOT!
NO I do not believe they are effective, I think they are the reason why we have seen a second wave of this virus. There is no carbon filter and I think you need one. Everyone should be wearing an N95 or 99 mask
no
I believe masks should be worn by the sick! Others should have a choice. Masks may be making everyone sick!
NO
No, expose me to the virus, let's get over this
No
No I do not
No the N95 or the cloth with at least 3 layers of flannel to even be effective. The other masks make everyone else feel good. It might help a direct sneeze or cough but then your eyes are exposed so the pathogen can enter through those membranes. I hate wearing masks. I think it should be our decision. I work as a nurse so doing direct patient care yes I wear one but I always have.  Besides that don’t you know this is a very smart virus? It knows exactly how far 6 ft is and would not dare cross the line!!!
No
No. I believe they cause more harm to the wearer than doing any good.
NO
No! Every medical professional we have spoke to says, they are not effective and if you do not keep them clean you can do harm to yourself. I have a CPAP machine. If I do not hook it up everyday to the cleaner I could get sick, and I did once until I bought the machine to sanitize it. People do not clean their mask! Also, we were in a restaurant and people put their Used mask on the tables! Yikes!
I think they are a wise predaction
NO!!! There are plenty of studies out to the contrary.
No
No
Absolutely believe they are dangerous and useless
No
No
No, it's a fear enhancement!
No
I do. I tho k me wearing a mask does not save me but my wearing a mask will help protect others. If we all wear masks we all protect each other especially the most vulnerable.
No
No
Absolutely not.
It's like a mosquito to a chain link fence.
I have wore a sheild only, a couple of times bc I couldn't get in the store.
I do not like it at all.

No
Not sure but out of respect for others i wear in public
NO
No
No
I am not sure but do wear one
No. Pores are significantly larger than that of bacteria and viruses. Furthermore, moisture retention increases the rate that a mask can contain germs, bacteria, and viruses that also increases the likelihood of contacting some sort of sickness or infection.

no butyou can breathe your own carbon monodioxide back in after breathing it out you think it will lower it not
Not 100% effective
No
No, they harbour germs and protect you from nothing.
No, they don't these masks can not filter out the virus 😷 because the virus can pass through
Not really
No
No
No!
NO!
No
NO!!
No
No, nothing could stop you from getting sick except taking the right kind of medicine
No
No, not at all Sir. We never wore them with a cold or the flu.
No
No
No
No
NO
No

No
Yes
No
No they are not safe . They hold and collect germs and bacteria and all you are doing is breathing them in . It even tells you on the box they came in that they are not safe from any virus.
Not sure
I have heard both sides. No I don't.
I believe that they are effective and efficient for medical professionals and first responders if they are made correctly.
NO.
No!  Cloth mask stop nothing and after wet from a person’s breath it’s even worse and can increase infection for everyone! Of cloth mask really work, then why weren’t we wearing them years ago!  Cloth masks are a form of controlling US, not to stop infections!
No it is keeping it from getting to herd level and thats the only way to get rid of it. Wearing a mask for 30 minutes at the store causes me to cough for 2 days!!!
No
Yes I do. Wearing the N95 is only one step for protecting yourself and others from the virus. Ensure to review CDC guidelines for other steps.
HELL NO!!!

No
No
Don't know
No
Any thing that blocks droplets from a cough ,sneeze , talking is helpful. Even if it’s not 100% effective, it helps!
No
NO
Not effective on healthy people!
NO
SOD ENZYME
NO
No
None of them are

No.
No mask is effective at saving lives
I don't see how! They are good for lint or dust, but a virus. BS
No they don’t work not enough microns so what is the point in wearing them besides a sense of false security
