Texas bar bans customers from wearing masks inside

A bar in Elgin, Texas, has banned patrons from wearing masks inside, putting up a sign on its door advising those who feel the need to wear a mask to stay at home. ’Being scared all the time isn’t good for your health. It suppresses your immune system,’ said Kevin Smith, the co-owner of the bar Liberty Tree Tavern. Elgin has a population of 10,000, and have 52 confirmed cases of Covid-19.

No. Just no. People shouldn't have to wear masks but they should have the right to if they wish.

I'm pretty sure robbers don't see those signs and say "Well shucks, I was going to rob that establishment but now I can't because they've banned masks. Ho hum, onto the next establishment!"

Fine by me. But can we also issue them DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) gift cards on entry. Just making things easy and clear to everyone.

Yayyyyyy! Let’s prolong restrictions by being complete dipsh!ts! Then let’s bitch when the next stay at home orders are enforced! While we’re at it let’s ban anyone who doesn’t drink and drive at the bar, that doesn’t impact anyone but the driver, right? Plus, what overreaching government official says We aren’t good drunk drivers! Feedomz!

There’s a good reason for this. They don’t want people coming in and robbing the place while masked.

being scared does not supress your immune system. covid-19 does though.

Don't confuse being cautious with being scared. Are you scared when you cross the road? Is that why you look for incoming cars first? On top of that, masks are mostly useful to protect others from you, not so much for self protection. They prevent a lot of your impact when talking, caughing etc... Wearing a mask in indoors public places is a service to others. Also, yes going out and exercising is very important and should always be allowed even during lockdowns, but it can be accomplished outdoors. Going indoors to spend time in a room with a bunch of strangers is not better for your health even without the virus.
