My mind has changed about them as well. until the vaccines are distributed I'm wearing the them in public if posted. It knocked my wife pretty hard and is a freaking weird ass sickens to go through. I still can't smell. My grand parents are having a bad go of it from blood clots assuming covid caused. I don't believe masks are very effective at all but if it stops me from transmitting to a person that can't fight it and makes them feel safer, I'm good with wearing them.
