My feeling is that the vast majority of protesters have been good about wearing masks.  Of course they have incentive to do so even without coronavirus. I think outdoors + mask does help significantly, but for there to be no uptick at all those two elements would have to provide damn near total immunity, which I do not think is the case.

I think many of them are young and asymptomatic, so that is delaying the noticeable surge. Also, in many areas coronavirus was starting to wane, so cases going down less fast doesn't register as much as cases goingbip and it takes a bit to make that U turn.

I think our best shot really is for coronavirus to mutate to a less deadly form, which you would think should happen since not killing your host is advantageous for survival.

Dayton just passed an ordinance making the wearing of masks in the city limits mandatory with a possible fine for non-compliance.
Good on em. These ass hats who wander around like its no big deal need to be reigned in.
The blow back should be interesting.

i'm on the reopening school committee for my school, so i've been digging into all kinds of information and stats. i figure covid will kill me so i'm doing everything i can to make my work safe for me and others.

i stumbled across one of the world's leading epideimologists on twitter: https://twitter.com/DrEricDing , and he's posting solid information about COVID, with some personal political comments as well. His group has found no upticks in protest areas - suggesting outside is much better than inside, and many protesters were wearing masks promoting that masks are the simplest weapon we have against COVID.

CDC and WHO recommendations are 10-14 days post symptoms to be clear of virus, if exposed. more time isn't necessary.

more information is coming out every day and for sure the CDC blew it with not recommending masks earlier, but we have a baseline of knowledge on how to stop this like other countries. trump has decided to ignore it and is causing thousands of deaths due to his vanity.

I was wondering today if the issue is the "14 day quarantine" and that it should really be "1 month".

There's a report that COVID was circulating in NYC in early February. And the states that are spiking now seemed to open about a month ago.
But the protests started over a month ago. In my experience with the protests, people aren't 6 ft apart at all times, but there is still a general "not too close" element.

Give it two weeks.  I think we will see big spikes in cities that have had large protests. 

I think the masks probably help reduce the risk of incidental/casual transmission, but I doubt they do much for people marching like 1 foot apart while yelling.

Maybe tear gas kills coronavirus, and the police have inadvertantly saved tens of thousands of lives.

Yeah, I don't advise large gatherings, but I do think that if the masks were at 99+% compliance, we could have large gatherings. The NYC protests, which have that 99% compliance, indicate that large gatherings with masks are okay. The cases in NYC are not going up (fingers crossed) and there's been a month of protests, so that's indicative.

If it's this simple...why isn't this happening? Blah.

Here's where I stand, based on my understandings of what's happening and what I see/read.

-Everyone wears masks. At all times except at home.
-Bars are closed.
-Dining... I don't know, I want to say "only outside" but even that feels contradictory. It really should be "take out only"
-Large gatherings that are outside are fine.
-Large indoor gatherings are still closed.

Mostly agree with this, but I don't think that "large gatherings" of any kind are advisable (indoor OR outside).

But as others have noted, Trump has simply given up. There's not even a resemblance of this administration TRYING anymore.
