Since more masks are better, I wear: one N-99, N-95, one KN-95, a worthless cloth mask to virtue signal, and a clear plastic face shield. That's only when I am in my car driving by myself. When I am around other people I wear a NASA space suit, one N-99, one n-95...

Thank you Harry, for your never ending vigilance. We need more people to step forward, and follow in your footsteps. Some should even place plastic bags over their heads. LOL

We HAVE to break the cycle of this thing mutating over & over, or it WILL become a much deadlier variety if we don't. A well-fitting mask over our faces (plus better handwashing, avoiding touching our faces, social distancing, and staying home when sick) will do that! DO IT!

Everyone, is already exposed to this virus. The masks, are only a flag of surrender, for the weak and insecure. It's time we move on with life.

Why support masks at all, CV is smaller microns than even an N95, there is literally no mask that protects against CV...but ask your local testing location how they test for variants when the rapid test is only 64% effective at detecting CV at all.

The masks, are useful at controlling the sheeple, and for covering ugly faces. Useless, for all other applications.

I wear a cloth mask to save medical grade for the medical workers

Cloth masks are virtually useless. It’s sad people still believe they work...if you can smell smoke while wearing your mask it’s not working for viruses or anything else...but you think you’re doing the “right” thing...just live your life!

Menards has loads of N95 masks. Please support your community.

The state of Missouri ranks dead last in teacher pay and state worker pay across the country. State workers, like me, are handed heavy workloads and have immense responsibilities in our work. While I love my job it is drastically overdue for state workers to recieve a raise to retain good employees.

You want services, the LEAST you can do is 1.5 percent below current inflation. They need more than 5.5 or it just kicks the can a few months down the road.

Yes they should. But it has to be greater than 7% inflation rate (and 7% is a bogus number.)

Corrections is the largest dept in the state. Yet they're the second lowest paid corrections dept of every state and has the 8th highest inmate population. They desperately need a raise

State employees are essential to keep the state going. Wages are going up every where the state should follow suit.

Because we are one of the lowest paid out of all 50 states and it is hard for us to find or keep good employees at our current salary.

With all the Biden inflation, caused by .gov printing trillions of dollars out of thin air in the failed COVID response, they need a raise. Gov workers with all their vacation days and great benefits should be paid less than the equivalent private sector job. I am not sure that is the case. LGB
