for the title text, i am pretty sure that is the norm in Japan. but then again us Americans are dumb and prefer not having a slight annoyance to ourselves to protecting others from maybe fatal diseases. KKona . 00:50, 27 March 2021 (UTC)Bumpf

Agreed! Considering the increasingly frequent (sometimes near-constant) low air quality & severe air quality days here in Denver, the only thing that'll stop me from wearing a mask in public at all times is heat stroke. It's very noticeable even after brief exercise, that I'm better off with the mask on, much of the year.
Since it's finally been destigmatized by public awareness, I hope any little extra bits of hygiene catch on. Spend a day counting shared surfaces & you'll probably find several more reasons to wash your hands. 😬

I have my doubts. Politically, forcing the well people to wear masks and quarantine instead of forcing the sick people to has been a great boon to Democrats. Why would they ever want to change back, now that the population has gotten used to following government orders?Seebert (talk) 14:50, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Sigh... Take off the tinfoil hat, and learn about presymptomatic and asymptomatic transmission. Ml66uk (talk) 15:05, 20 April 2021 (UTC)

I hope we can go back to the even older norm of "stay home if you're feeling sick". Shamino (talk) 21:25, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

Agreed. Personally I'll be wearing a mask on the airplane and airports for many years to come. Its amazing how some sanitizer, washing, and masks are with reducing frequency of illness.

This comic could imply that Cueball and White Hat are related or part of the same Covid-19 bubble, since they are standing less than 6 feet apart. They may be out in a public space together. 19:54, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

This discussion is incomplete because as of yet nobody has explained how to get a good seal around the bridge of your nose. I swear the only way I'll ever find out is to kidnap a healthcare professional and put them in a Jigsaw deathtrap where the only way to survive is to post an instructional video on youtube so everyone can finally find out their terrible mask secrets

I definitely agree! I came to this page for that purpose only, and come back with nothing but disappointment @IkaTheFox (talk) 17:19, 21 May 2021 (UTC)

We usually keep the incomplete tag up for a few days after a comic is posted. If you feel that an explanation is complete, feel free to remove the tag. 00:01, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
