No I don't.  Most people I know are beyond ready to move on and get back to business and their nomal lives.  And yes I said it.  Normal. We know how to be safe at the same time. We're not children now are we....well, most of us.

Branded masks are EVERYWHERE!

Personality masks are closing in.

Styl'n will be the next wave...likely via gaiters,,,to ride to years end.

And most will enter 2021 will be thinking those exploiting the situation are tacky.

OK, remember....you asked...

1. No.

2. Yes...and the same idiots wearing masks in wrong applications will buy them. If you are healthy, a mask is doing you more harm than good. Sickies should wear them or really just stay home.

I think this, too, will pass. I'm no expert but it is my opinion these homemade masks only provide emotional support. proper N-95 masks, I'm told, have to be fitted for each person to be totally effective

I don't think it will be a trend but, while it's here, make the best of it - have fun with it! The alternative is not nearly as positive!

Hopefully by the end of summer, we'll be safe to move about as we please!

If retail or services requires it what can you do? Wearing them at home, in the car or out in the wilderness lacks common sense. One thing though, this will definitely (if kept up) reduce colds and flu when the season arrives. However, seeing kids at school or people in college, sports events, restaurants (how can you eat?) wearing masks in America as standard? Polluted countries I understand...Beware of extremism & false controls

They already exist Peter! You have to be quick to grab the consumer's eye, especially when trending! It is difficult for me to breathe when I wear them, so hopefully, this virus will pass and we can all breathe easier again.

Unless you have a N95, the mask is not protecting you, is is protecting others from you. I sure hope not but facemask police will sure let you know if you dont have one on

I am sickened by the people who feel it's their duty to report on others for not wearing masks or not social distancing.

Meanwhile, I'm very grateful to live where the virus has had very little impact and hardly anyone wears a mask. I read that Costco required shoppers to wear them, so I decided I didn't need to shop there.

I sure hope this is over soon - I'm tired of seeing all the ads for masks!

Yes, they will be here for awhile. For years I would see asian people all around town wearing facemasks, even after so many of the various threats have died down. That said, people from Bejing had such polluted air, you had to wear a mask. Even if we find an effective vaccine, many will still wear the masks.
