Do masks indoors make a large difference re: AC circulation of the virus? 

not really, unless they're actually filtered (ie - gasmask)

If everyone inside is wearing one? Yes. It keeps the virus from spreading out into the air anywhere near as easily. 

If you're the only one wearing one? Then it needs to be a very tight fitting mask with good to great filtration properties to .2 microns I believe

Bell county hit triple digits for new cases in one day for the first time, 128 new cases on Tuesday.  Highest prior to that was 84, set last week, the two weeks prior to that both peaked around 40.  Looks like we are getting exponential growth.  Its a good thing Bell county commissioners changed the judges order making masks mandatory on Monday, would hate to see people's feelings getting hurt.  

Quote

Blackburn issued the order June 24. He said the largest private health care provider in the county advised him they had the largest number of COVID-19 patients since the pandemic began.

"Baylor Scott and White expressed concern about hospital capacity in Bell County," said Blackburn. "That is one of the reasons I issued the directive."

Prior to the meeting Blackburn issued a statement reading in part, "Today, the Court modified Directive #8. The modification removed the mandatory provisions in the Directive, as well as the penalty provision in the Directive. In its place, the Court substituted “strongly recommended.” Hence, there is no mandatory provisions in place for any business in Bell County at this time relating to face coverings."

One of my friends from undergrad shared a post from a friend of hers who is an ID specialist. She said the only time the virus gets aerosolized is during medical procedures like intubation or bronchoscopy. When you cough the virus is transmitted in large respiratory droplets. These should be heavy enough to fall quickly to the ground (or table surface). This is why we are seeing limitation in spread even with cloth face coverings. I don’t think air recirculated via AC is a big deal if that is the case

It's a spectrum. You know that- from bandana to full respirator. Even the bandana reduces viral load in the air.

then you might want to start wearing a mask now, Congressman.  I personally know someone who spends a lot of time out at the bars in Austin.  He probably has Covid-19.  And he  face-fucks your middle-daughter on the reg.   And she visits you and your absolutely horribly fugly wife, so you're probably walking dead.  So mask up and quit raising whores dipshit.  See you on the backside fuckface.

There's been conflicting reports and studies on this. Several have suggested the droplets can travel on an HVAC air stream and infect a high percentage of people down wind contingent on the length of time of exposure. I'm definitely not confident enough in any evidence to the contrary to risk that.

Highlights from today's telecon where we discussed returning to the office, which is 100% not happening for me:

1.  There's so many different opinions about masks.  It's hard to know who to listen to!

Oh, I don't know.... Maybe listen to the fucking doctors instead of Cletus from the MAGA Patriot Hangout on Facebook? 

2.  How do I know if I am getting enough oxygen with a mask on?

I don't know. Maybe ask the thousands of healthcare professionals who wear a mask 8+ hours a day without dying or becoming brain damaged?

This state is fucked.

Well, to their credit, if they’re asking this question it is clearly due to lack of oxygen to the brain.

Ironically probably not that many get it from beaches so unless you close off all indoor public gatherings too it might make it worse as it funnels more people who would have been at the beach to a restaurant or house party. 

It's like the state still knows nothing after 6 months how this virus transmits.

Possibly. But the other side of the equation is that maybe fewer people will make the drive down to Galveston to begin with and just hold their own celebrations at home instead.

we're gonna need the story.

Bob Popular, mid-90’s.  Vanilla  never showed up.  Bar owner kept saying he would be there in a few minutes, presumably to keep selling drinks.  The natives got drunk, then restless, the bouncers weren’t happy about the natives drunkenness and restlessness.  They tried to clear the place out, some punches were thrown, and the police randomly arrested every 5th guy in the place.

Most people come for the beach, so now its closed and parking on the seawall is off limits,  it will drastically downsize the crowds. We've had some nightmarish crowds already this summer, this weekend was heading that way. Sucks for the businesses, but a smart choice overall.

Fuck everyone for opening so soon, irresponsible.

Ha ha I remember that night. I declined to join in on that bullshit fuckery but a few of my buddies got arrested.

I was at the Snow show in the early 90s where Snow he got his ass whipped. Better time!

It’s like you haven’t been down here all summer. 
The seawall has been packed.  Like shoulder to shoulder.  People then go restaurants like the spot (more like a bar) and completely ignore social distancing. They have even been having issues for huge tailgates on the seawall sponsored by various motor clubs  

with this new rule, you can’t even park on the seawall.   It’s a huge win for science.

I actually vaguely remember this story from way back when. So it’s got to be true.

I've been to Galveston plenty over the past month.  Never shoulder to shoulder on the seawall, in fact plenty of room for the bikes to ride and try to run us over.  All the restaurants i went to were enforcing inside seating limits.  The science shows that this spreads inside in close contact.  This is not a win for science.

No but it's a win for slowing spread down a bit until maybe people take this shit seriously.
