IDK, driving around today I saw plenty without masks, not even on their chins
Guess neighborhoods matter. Any semi-busy street in my parts (or along yaffo) you won't see a person walking without a mask.

Evidently not, or they wouldn't come to my house. They decided not to live stream their wedding so as not to evoke criticism in their community, which would be inevitable watching a wedding where it's likely that very few will be wearing masks.
So they weren't fearful, just uncomfortable enough that they didn't allow their own community to share in their simcha?

Speak for yourself. When I wear a mask I need to open it up to get a few breaths of air every couple of minutes. Yes, it is an imposition.
You, @avromie7, are hereby absolved from having to wear a mask.
But you should double down on social distancing and hand washing.

I'm not going to try to practice psychology. And I'm not sure why you put the two issues in one sentence.

So are you saying 12ft rather than 6ft?

Thinking about how other people feel isn't "practicing psychology". 

I put them in one sentence because (a) they both seemed to deal with your guests' feelings, and (b) you put them in one paragraph and (c) I'm practicing writing more concisely.

And (d), I'm not picking on you, but upset about a couple I know with underlying conditions who made the long drive from OOT to Lakewood for a vort, and wore a mask when entering the home of the machatonim, who did not wear a mask themselves.

As a rule, I am always speaking for myself. In no way did I imply that I am speaking on behalf of the DDFC or any community for that matter.

The surgical mask is probably one of the easiest to wear. What was the issue?

I think anyone being intellectually honest will agree that wearing a mask is a small tradoff (and not an imposition).

How can "anyone being intellectually honest" be speaking only for yourself?

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Did I? In any event, the Israeli ministry of health (supposedly relying on the CDC and/or WHO) claim that it is unknown if antibodies provide any immunity.

See: https://www.health.gov.il/Subjects/disease/corona/Documents/bz-259782620.pdf

Then you can let the Israeli Ministry of Health know that you have a person of unknown infectious status who has yet to infect people with antibodies if that’s what you mean by the all clear.

Your inviting Floridians to stay at your house belies your entire underlying attitude about how herd immunity is what will keep the community safe. What’s your excuse for allowing people from a highly infectious place to stay in the community? Are you positive they don’t have COVID? Herd immunity will not protect at least *some* people from contracting COVID if you introduce a new infectious case.

Because you’re not being intellectually honest, obviously. If you had to wear a mask because you’d die otherwise you’d get used to it real fast like glasses, seatbelts, life jackets, or any other “imposition”. Within a week you’d forget it existed and it would be second nature. You *never* gave it that chance because from day one you’ve been in denial about the efficacy of communal mask wearing. (Unless you have underlying respiratory issues, which you said you don’t have).

Mask wearing is literally a tiny step to take that would greatly improve safety overall but as I’ve pointed out there seem to be religious objections to it. It’s what made me realize this was never about government overreach or “lockdown issues”, but always about selfishness and personal comfort. Mask wearing will be uncomfortable for anyone in the beginning. But for some reason doctors, nurses, food industry workers etc. who are required to wear masks all day figure it out and live with it.

Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?
