I would like to see it return. The same selfish people will thumb their noses at public health. Our shared beliefs of compassion, empathy and community are being replaced by the idea of me and I. How does one believe they are more important than everyone else's life. Thank God I don't underst that.

We can work together to beat COVID by masking until we reach 80% vaccination

What if we never reach it? What's the end game? People who aren't vaccinated now are probably never going to get vaccinated.

Low vaccination rates, high Delta variant spread.

But masks were literally the only incentive to get vaccinated. Unvaccinated people will for sure not get it now. Why would they.

If we ever want to get rid of this ugly virus we have to get vaccinated and wear our masks until it is gone!!!

If masks get reinstated we will wear them forever unvaccinated people don't want to get vaccinated. Even if the mandate gets reinstated they still won't wear masks. It will literally only be people who are vaccinated.

You can ask this question in another way. "Do you want the covid illness to continue to spread unchecked, causing severe illness and death to some in your community?"

cases are up. What we aren't told is how many of these are asymptomatic, how many with very mild symptoms, and importantly, how many of these were fully vaccinated. No one is talking about new deaths in Columbia and County, because there haven't been any recent ones here.

The masking mandates are a joke, remember the walking into a restaurant wearing it but once your seated you can take it off? Where are all these dying covid people? No we don't need any more goofy mandates that requires a bacteria laden petri dish covering our faces and restricting our oxygen. No th

Wow really makes you wonder how all of those surgeons manage to keep themselves healthy while masked up?

Surgeons wear masks so they won't get Gall stones. Ya right.

Masks are good for people who are afraid of the dark. Masks are of no value to healthy and sane people. If you feel you need a mask, please wear one, or two.

It's too hot for one thing, and it lowers O2 intake.

The Government has done enough damage with mandates. Leave us along so we can resume a life without the Government tells us every move we can make. If you want to wear a mask, go ahead. it wont bother me, but don't try to violate my life with mandates that affect my life. America is about Freedom.

I already got vaccinated so I shouldn't have to keep being forced to be uncomfortable every time I leave my house.

They did nothing to stop the spread the first time. They're unnecessary. Just get vaccinated and stop living in fear.

Because there is no evidence that vaccinated individuals can spread covid in non-negligable #s.

If people can't be bothered to get vaccinated, why should I have to wear a mask to protect THEM?

UM athletics is an arm of govt. they do not earn anything. That Univ produces nothing but obnoxious computer geeks who get jobs for state govt agencies like the DOT spending their days synchronizing traffic lights that nobody understands like the asburgers nerd we have in my hometown up here in NWMO

Would you like the name and number of a state employee who is a graduate of this university? Who continues to support this athletic program? Would you join our effort to remove him from state employment for being a UM grad?

Like most drivers, I have one hand holding my fast food, other hand holding my cell phone, a knee on the steering wheel, and rarely look up from my cell phone so I don't know if other drivers are so irresponsible to be driving distracted or not. I certainly don't drive distracted, that's bad. FJB

Many time ppl are seen looking/using phone while driving crossing the line on the road or having to slam on their brakes so they don't hit the car in front of them.
