As much as that might be the view here, that's really not the case in the


wider world. Where I live, wearing a mask has never been a big deal. And few, if any, people think it's a substitute for vaccination.

I do think the messaging from the states and from the CDC has been terrible, and telling people that even though they are fully-vaccinated, they need to continue to wear masks except when in the presence of fully-vaccinated family members is extremely conservative and unnecessary (and I have not worn a mask in my house at any point other than to try it on to see if it fits, which I would imagine is the case for most people).

But I don't think anyone views them as magical or the exclusive weapon in the fight against COVID.

If we'd all worn them from the beginning and observed social distancing requirements, life would have gone back to normal a year ago, but because of the insistence of many that it is an infringement on fundamental Constitutional freedoms, and not a public health measure (however much or little it may help), we are still fighting this virus 14 months later and 6 months after the introduction of extremely effective and safe vaccines.
