RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

No relation to R. Elliot, funny, because if people get my name wrong they usually call me Bob. But in all my travels in Mexico I have not seen masks worn, and as I stated earlier current discussions and photos on other forums and active webcams of city streets in Mexico reveal few if any masks worn. It's the same with a newspaper that serves this ares. Practically every photo in the newspaper features mask clad people - yet when I travel out and around it's pretty uncommon to see a person wearing a mask. Many here are either Californians or Canadians - maybe masks are common in those places but for flyover Americans masks are more a theatrical statement than a proven safeguard. Even Dr. Fauci has admitted as much (although he is like a weather vane in a tornado) Here's a question: If masks really are effective why are hospitals and other similar facilities firing staff that object to vaccination after they have been wearing masks all this time and could continue to wear masks at work? Are there any statistics of how many Covid cases originated from masked hospital staff? I realize most folks here think someone like me is ill-informed, selfish, or in denial but I question how seriously any of you have investigated the entire Covid episode as you surrender liberties for all of us? If the government can lock down, isolate, inject citizens over a 99.7% survivable virus what are you empowering the government to do when a pandemic like the 1918 virus with its 60% survival rate to do to us? It's a divisive issue with strong feelings on both sides. I don't think promoting an unrealistic demand ( one that I can't decisively confirm elsewhere )is going to promote travel in Mexico.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

This forum is about camping in Mexico and South America. Reading through all your available posts it doesn't appear that you ever have posted a comment about Mexico let alone traveled in Mexico but you feel qualified to tell those of us who realize which forums we are in to "get educated"?

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

Unfortunately masks, vaccinations, lock downs, and the various variants are politically charged and the news we hear is filtered and purposefully sculpted to fit a narrative. I participate in another Mexico oriented forum (apolitical) where people post photos and discuss travel and life in Mexico. Mask usage in Mexico from what I can read and see is far from universal. I assume is it much like mask usage in Maine and most other states in the US. 90% of folks on this forum, regulars all, have predictable views on masks, vaccinations (which were promised to end mask requirements and the spread of the virus), and restrictions. That's unfortunate and it's not reflective of reality. At some point a healthy caution became a neurosis. It's well past time to start questioning the news we hear.

RE: CH-CH-CH changes ( with apologies to David Bowie)

I would add that there's a truck driver shortage in the US which means that less than stellar drivers with a clean CDL can get a job and keep a job easier than ever. This can also mean that some of the OTR drivers might not be the traditional "knights of the highways" we've come to expect. Some might drive more aggressively than in the past. Some might have recently come from countries where driving customs differ from the US/Canada and even Mexico. I write this as one who has great respect for OTR drivers and prefer driving amidst trucks at night than cars by day. Truckers are often more disciplined and predictable than car drivers (IMHO). By the same token try to give the OTR drivers a break by maintaining an even speed, using the left lane for passing only, and be aware of left lane truck prohibitions on some roads which confines trucks to the two other lanes. They're working long hours, away from family, and stressed.
