    Default Mask Mandate

    How is everyone going to deal with masks next year when masks may be required on Federal lands. That would include boaters, surfers, swimmers etc. If you plan to summit Mt. Rainier don't forget to wear your mask. I'm not sure we gain much with the next administration.


    "If you’re on federal land, you must wear a mask. In a federal building, you must wear a mask. And we could have a fine for them not doing it," he told CNN on Sept. 18."

    We've been wearing masks here, you couldn't even have 2± people in a boat. I've been rock climbing for months with a mask on, you get used to it. Now we gotta wear them longer.

    We can all agree masks suck but it's obvious the pandemic is out of control in the US with spikes all over the country.

    Everyone just stay safe this Thanksgiving.

    Stay home and don't have a shit ton of family over. It only takes one asymptomatic person to wipe out an entire family.

    If we want to have a semi-normal summer in 2021 it's gonna take discipline on everyone's part in the near-term.

    I'll take zabooda's side on this for a sec. way back in the late 00's several of us lobbied for the off topic section for conversations just like this. it should be moved to that section but that's what it's there for. sure zab was one of the og's that helped get all the added sections over the years....

    that said, it's amazing to me all the people that don't think this is real. not a dr and don't play one on tv but common sense says masks prevent germs.
    RC is spot on. only takes 1... use some common sense....

    I sure hope they don't mandate federal lands. I believe mead is federal. not a chance my other half and I going out alone would sport masks but if taking others and directive is masks, then so be it although we spent most of our water time this year just the 2 of us.

    this would be a good "off topic" subject.

    As a paramedic I know this is for real. Masks work, but the realities are that my social bubble includes my wife, my daughter and her hubby, and our grandkids. I will wear a mask on my boat when the LEO’s approach. I will wear my mask on shore, at the ramp, and at the fuel pump. I’ve written off eating in public, going to our favorite bar, and a number of social activities. I have to wear a N95 mask in my firehouse FFS, because we don’t know about asymptomatic spread. My wife is a nurse. We’ve already had COVID and I wouldn’t wish it upon anyone I personally know. But with reason being what it is, my social bubble isn’t going to be masked up while we are surfing. Like I said, we will have our masks for the ramp, the beach, the sand bar, or whatever interaction we have, but our time will mostly be maskless. Common sense needs to prevail. I understand Biden’s intent, and I hope federal lands leadership will also understand the same intent. 84% of my state is under federal management, but the majority of waterways are under state control, Mead being the exception. State and local mandates will be the factor, for most boaters. Exercise common sense and good judgement regarding aeresolized virus transmission. If you are symptomatic, stay home for 2 wks. Test frequently. Stay in your social bubble and have hard conversations about close contacts. It’s not a game. I was laid up with a severe cough for 5 weeks. I lost 35% of cardiac function and almost had to retire. It took me 3 months to recover after getting it a second time.

    Is covid going to keep me from boating. No. Am I going to boat responsibly. Yes, as always. If you are on my crew, consider yourself special. You are in my bubble, or I know your contact history. If you are socially irresponsible, you won’t be riding on my boat. Vaccination or not.
