1) You must walk into the community centre with a mask on
2) You can remove your mask when running around playing
3) When you shift off and you're on the sidelines waiting for your next turn, you have to put a mask on

So...... you're in a sealed gym with 17 other guys running full out and coming into contact with them playing hockey which is always going to be contact in some way and it's okay to be maskless, but when you go off to the bench you have to put a mask on? Am I the only one that thinks that's just stupid? I mean... if they're worried just cancel it. That's not preventing shit all.
It's a stupid policy but I guess the only other option is to shut down completely. I think it's a huge health risk for certain people to cut off oxygen intake during physical exertion.

Even in Hong Kong, where the masks rules are crazy strict (you still have to wear them at all times in public, even outdoors walking down the street), they had to make an exception for people exercising outdoors. Which again makes it stupid that you have to wear them when not exercising.

Still have to wear them in gyms though, and it really, REALLY sucks.

Side rant:

I'm not an anti masker by any means, I've been advocating them since day 1 of this thing when people were still going by old science of "it doesn't block the incoming virus". But fuck we're down to 0 local cases now with super strict quarantine and border closure. Half the population is vaccinated now. Can we at least take them off outdoors? Maybe more people will vaccinate if you let them take off their mask more often. It makes no sense to enforce them outdoors

Skinny, you've been in HK all this time, and you're telling me you don't know all of the insanely strict anti-COVID measures are only there because of political reasons?

Carrie is not going to ease things up until China feels ready to open up. Either that, or Carrie gets replaced, and the new puppet CEO -- Pikachu Lee? -- tries some new stuff.

Interior health is also 1/4 of the population of those 2 health authorities, with a proportionally sized healthcare system.
They are also at higher risk for hospitalization due to lower vaccination rates.

You canít make specific rules for every activity. People arenít that smart to keep track of, nor will they both to even learn them.

Physical activity, mask off. Sitting mask on. It may be silly in your situation, but itís a lot better then masks on everywhere.

Haha yah after thinking about it I honestly don’t agree with what I said. It’s not silly. There’s a difference between sitting stationary in close proximity to people breathing heavily and running around near them…

I know they want to have a zero covid policy like China, but other countries do too. And I know they want to open the border for China before anywhere else, and for some stupid reason keep using that to try to entice people to get vaccinated.

But no, not every single decision they make on covid is political. They've flip flopped on stuff, and there are some bad decisions, but mostly they are doing the right things to keep us safe from covid.

Horgan having a dinner that has a party of 7.

Angry people angry because they think it's max 6.

However, that was one of the rules that didn't actually take effect so he can have 7.

Angry people angry because rules are hard and people don't keep up to date on them.

Maybe a shot of dog pee with it will cure all symptoms

Dude who posted the original footage should hang his head in shame and give his balls a tug. He thought he had a news break story. He's like, "I caught him, I caught him............"

Give your balls a tug, numbnut.
