GUTHRIE, Okla. (KFOR) Cities across the state are enforcing new guidelines, such as wearing face masks in public, for residents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is a list of cities/ towns requiring or highly recommending residents wear face masks in public.
Beginning April 7, at 6 p.m., all persons must wear masks or other face covering when within six (6) feet of another person and when outside their home or place of residence. This may be a commercially available mask or face covering or a homemade mask or face covering made from any material. Businesses or individuals that sew may be open for the limited purpose of providing masks or face coverings. Fabric stores may be open, by appointment only, for the limited purpose of providing materials for masks or face coverings. All customers of businesses and individuals providing masks must be served one-at-a-time and customer areas must be sanitized between each customer.
Beginning April 10 at midnight, people within the Chickasha city limits are mandated to wear a cloth face mask when making a public outing for essential activities.
Residents in El Reno must wear a face mask when going into essential businesses.
Starting at midnight April 7, masks are now mandatory in Guthrie when residents are in public. Residents should wear the masks when going out for essential errands, like grocery shopping or going to the pharmacy. Your mouth and nose should be covered.
The City of Yukon says it is highly recommended for all individuals to wear a mask or handkerchief covering the mouth and nose at all times while in public.
Das ist Zehr gut.
They also need to remind folks to always have their papers with them...
Wearing face masks in close contact situations MIGHT be fine, but simply stated as “in public” universally, with no context, has no science behind it.
My nephew’s wife is an infectious disease doctor, the I.D. head expert at her hosipital, with a few Wuhan virus patients, north of Manhattan. SHE does not wear a mask “in public” universally, regardless of context. I think she knows what she is doing.
Not that I was ever going to visit OK, now even less of a reason.
I think only the butt ugly should be targeted...

I will grab the beast and risk ridicule and being totally wrong in this case.
The majority of young doctors have educated in different paradigm than the old guys. The new ones often brag about practicing “Best Evidence” medicine. They primarily rely on algorithms and flow charts and have to learn to rely on experience and their own senses and analytical judgments.
A lot of the old school docs might disagree with her.
And people will argue until the cows come home that we’re not receiving mixed messages! Trust them, they say! You have to wonder if they ever heard of Nazi Germany!
These are the people who will NEVER give up the power given to them with orders like this. Think the Mayor in Beverly, MA is going to relinquish his power after he can dictate HOW people are to walk on sidewalks from now on? Oh - temporary, is it? HA! Or mayors in FL cities who order that property owners don’t have the right to their private beaches?
How on earth did we ever get to this stage?
“A lot of the old school docs might disagree with her.”
I would call her an old school doc and certainly not one “bragging about practicing best medicine”. She never threw antibiotics at her kids when they were growing up and does not “primarily rely on algorithms and flow charts”, having been taught well in the 1980s here and abroad by other old school docs. What she does not do is react to unsubstantiated claims, yet, in emergenies and for the life of her patients she does not restrict herself to all FDA mandates. She has applied Hydroxychloroquine to some of her Covid-19 patients, after considering concerns about regarding patients with certain pre-existing conditions.
You should not assume you know others whom you do not know.
I speculated based on lots of experience, and tried to couch terms in the possible, not the certain.
She sounds better than most, but even Homer nods.
All theyre doing now is just fucking with us.
There was that study in Germany that said people don’t need to wear masks and that it doesn’t live on surfaces. I read it here earlier this morning.
It’s the stupidest bunch of crap I’ve ever seen outside the pachyderm house at the zoo. Doesn’t have jack-schitt to do with public safety. It’s about control. Nothing more, nothing less. All the mask-lovers out there are welcome to get up on their high horses and belittle anyone with a differing opinion all they want. Doesn’t make them right.
