General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Can the government legally force you to wear a mask?
The answer is “yes.”
In a pandemic, governments have the authority to do a lot of things that would otherwise be questionable.
There may be legitimate disabilities that would prevent someone from wearing a mask: someone with autism who has sensory issues, for example, or someone with a respiratory problem for which a mask would make breathing difficult.
Tonker’s scientifically backed ‘hygiene hypothesis’, how being too clean might be making us sick by not exposing us to bacteria does not sit well with me.
So, yes, “I will continue with my current regime” and STAY ALIVE.
Firefox, IMO you should stick with the rules and wear a mask, but it’s a free country and you can choose to do do what you want, but you may be breaking the law, just a thowt.
