outdoors unless it would a very crowded event.

4. With 7000 new cases

a day in Florida and 7% positivity rate, A person would be nuts to disregard guidelines. And Joe lives in Florida with a 87 year old mother in law!

2. If you are vaccinated and outside you (most likely) do not need a mask

Unless you are jammed into a stadium setting with 70,000 people.

Or are walking very crowded streets with no space at all.

You are fine to be without a mask outdoors 90% of the time.

9. That number means nothing.

Did these people contract the virus outside?

Had they been vaccinated?

Or did they go dine indoors? Go to a bar?

Engage in other risky behavior?

If you are vaccinated, outdoors is almost entirely safe unless you are right up on people.
And even then the vaccine efficacy is 95%.

So you are still VERY safe outdoors without a mask on.

IF YOU ARE VACCINATED (which was the original thrust of the OP)

7. I can see that but I am not going to wear a mask mowing

the lawn, riding a bike or walking from the parking lot to Wal-Mart. I was in Wal-Mart today I doubt 1/2 the customers were wearing one in the store.

8. All the more reason to wear one.

The vaccines are 76% - 95% effective, not 100%. If only half of the fools indoors are wearing them, you're putting yourself at risk.

11. The OP was about vaxxed poeple wearing masks OUTDOORS

There is no reason to wear masks outdoors if you have been vaxxed.

14. mowing the lawn--no need to wear a mask

biking? i don't know

parking lot into walmart - i'd say yes, considering you might be passing someone who sneezes or coughs.

inside walmart and a lot of anti maskers? please consider doing pre-orders and just going to pick things up rather than going inside and being around those without masks.

target does the drive up/pick up too.

12. For vaxxed people, outdoors?

The positivity rate for vaxxed people outdoors without masks is zero.

13. I have never worn a mask outdoors.

Then again, my outdoor activities don't involve close approximation with other people.

17. As To my original

post. I was referring to wearing a mask, even outdoors, when close to others. No need ever when just outside away from people. We still need to be careful. Sit away from people in a restaurant, wear a mask when ordering, don't congregate in a crowded bar. All the anti vaxers keep us vulnerable folks needing to be ultra careful. Not good for a tv personality to tell his fans otherwise.
