Take care not to throw the baby out with the bathwater.....there 's a lot of good in our colleges and universities outside of the leftist dominated disciplines......we might want to keep producing doctors and nurses and engineers and other technical people etc.

Effectiveness of Adding a Mask Recommendation to Other Public Health Measures to Prevent SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Danish Mask Wearers

Conclusion:
The recommendation to wear surgical masks to supplement other public health measures did not reduce the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers by more than 50% in a community with modest infection rates, some degree of social distancing, and uncommon general mask use. The data were compatible with lesser degrees of self-protection.

No argument there. Teaching those hard sciences is critical.

Critical, and hopefully devoid of the emotional responses to difficulties in life, whether health, financial, political.....unfortunately universities have been breeding grounds for socialism longer than any of us have been alive.

Our company goes above and beyond what the city dicktates. The panic is full-on here, and oddly enough, people still get the Wuhan.

I've seen several businesses that have the "Mandated" sign out front, yet no one wears a mask, patrons or employees. Others have completely bought into it and won't let you in without that magic piece of cloth over your mouth.

Mandates only work when enforced. That is true whether it's for one county or an entire state.

My point was that people currently can live outside a mandate and bring it with them to places with mandates and still infect people (with work being one location if there are mask exceptions, which was my question).

Generally speaking that should still hold true, given how efficient we have been told they are at stopping the virus. However, what's interesting is that the "rules" have been in place for quite a few months, and the numbers never went down significantly, then we have had a significant spike. This was before Tulsa Schools when in person too. So there are some other variables at play it seems. Don't think anything will stop it or slow it much either, outside another lockdown or a vaccine.

holidays seem to be a big one. Our middle school saw it's biggest spike two weeks from halloween

Universities are looking smart.....before the semester even began they planned to have students stay at home after Thanksgiving break.

Yep. they see spikes in health issues after thanksgiving under normal circumstances. Many are now moving to eliminate spring break for the same reason.

Man this sucks, I was planning some elective surgeries. Part 1 in Jan. and part 2, 3 months later in March or April. I bet I wont be able to have it till summer which means I'll be recovering from surgery instead of enjoying summer.

They can for sure, but nobody can say that's main issue. However, again, we don't know what's actually going on because they've had a mandate for quite some time and the surrounding cities not so much here in Tulsa. If it was to be spread in that method in a significant manner, we would've seen issues some time ago.
