Masks are required at the parks right now. We have hashed out your argument multiple times and there is no need to do it again. At this point in time, if you don't want to wear a mask and think t

It is really quite simple: If you do not want to wear a mask at a place of business that requires a mask, don't go. Please understand though- DO NOT cause a scene because an employee has asked yo

Pro tip - take the upper part of the mask, and fold it over inside. Then put it on, and pinch the bridge of your nose while pulling the mask downward. Worked wonders for me (I use a surgical mask so I can't vouch for any other types).

Oooooo, that might be just the ticket I'm looking for. I also use surgical masks too

I definitely would not recommend bringing your lawn mower to KI and mowing the grass. That very well may result in a ban.  Certainly not while wearing an N95 mask (that may upset @BeeastFarmer), but if you must a cloth mask should work fine.
 

Being a bit selective and disingenuous in your story telling today, eh BJ?

Beeastfarmer does not get upset over things like this anymore.  I have realized that people are going to do what they are going to do in spite of evidence-based practice.  The situation has resolved, at least here on KIC.  I hope he does not cuss someone out or take a swing, though.  That's dangerous in general and even more so during a pandemic.  I'll stay clear of any bearded fella with a well used N95 mask covered with a bandana. ;)

 

I have to say that I was impressed with someone's father here.  Kid complaining about wearing a mask and the dad sent him out to mow and pull weeds.  Sounds like he learned his lesson and looks forward to riding Diamondback.

Petition to end mask policy. I don't see this changing anything right now. I don't have a desire to wear a mask anymore than anyone else, but I still think it's the safest thing for the park and the guests.

As I said previously, it doesn’t matter if other places make masks optional, they’re required at KI. In order for us to have fun, while being safe, we must wear masks. That is now the standard.

That is the standard the KI has chosen to go with.  And that standard from health experts may change tomorrow, next month or next year.

We have to all accept the reality that from now on out, patrons of KI have to wear masks. It’s a changed world, whether we like it or not.

I hate to break it to you, but guests probably aren't going to be required to wear masks 100% of the time. They have left some wiggle room to cover their butt's. And to allow people to get a break. And we'll see how it plays out once they're actually open. I think it'll probably be a lot more lax than your post suggests.

Masks won't be permanent. I can guarantee you on that. Masks and social distancing requirements won't last forever. Once we get a vaccine and/or an effective treatment, those stuff will be relaxed. They didn't stay once the 1918 Spanish Flu ended. People were just as against masks back then as they are now.

Hopefully this time next year things will be back to normal or at least almost back to normal. I hope a vaccine is proven effective soon and mass produced, so it can be administered. I also hope people don’t refuse to take the coronavirus vaccine.

Exactly. I am fine with wearing a mask and social distancing for for the duration of the pandemic. Once it’s over, that’s a different story.

So if KI exists in 2472, masks will still be in place?  I wish I was that forward thinking.

Probably, but that will be because we ran out of O2 and our masks will keep us from going all OG Total Recall.

Nothing is guaranteed when it comes to viruses.  Keep in mind for many years HIV research received as much federal funding as all of cancer research.  Still no HIV vaccine, I know completely different virus but there are no guarantees. 
 

Face masks are the new condoms.  :P

Well if that's the case, we can't be wearing masks and social distancing forever. I have a feeling eventually we'll have an effective treatment kinda like HIV if that happens.

How long did the HIV treatment take?

Wow, I really didn't think they would win the case. Wonder if the state is going to appeal

It is a preliminary injunction.  Still needs to go to trial.  These kinds of things usually end up at the State Supreme Court eventually.

Uh, sorry to burst your bubble, but when the rules say masks are required, they must be worn. Just because other parks were lax, does not mean it’s the same at Kings Island. We must  accept having to wear masks, it’s the new normal.

With how well the phone policy works I'm sure your right :rolleyes:  Also good for Kalahari! It's unconstitutional anyways like the article says. Glad we don't have a "DR" running the state anymore!

Uh, sorry to burst YOUR bubble, but get ready to see plenty of people taking them off/wearing them incorrectly. There's literally no way it'll be enforced strictly throughout the entire park.

Plenty of people won’t be taking there masks off. As I said just because other places don’t require masks, doesn’t mean it will happen at KI. KI has laid down the rules, and they will be followed, if people want to have fun at the park.

In fact, the CDC now requires masks to be worn for large groups.
