Since I moved the other day from SD to Las Terrenas I have had a harder time with the mask. I didn’t forget it in the capital and it seemed more natural with lots of people. In Las Terrenas I have twice totally forgotten. I am getting used to it now though.
I have a similar problem because of "living" in multi cities. I try to attach the mask next to something I won't leave the house without. Car keys, id, wallet, condoms. :cool:

WARNING

One has to take a huge risk with their life to travel to DR at this time. And the same goes for expats who are living in DR. Even if the chances of getting Covid-19 is smaller in DR than United States, but there is always a chance to get it. If you get it then here is no hope of getting any competent treatment at DR hospitals, regardless of how rich you are. The reality is some expats who encourage others to travel to DR, they themselves are stuck in DR and have no means of going back and living in their countries of origin.

Maybe you are a little extreme here. I was accused of having socialist ideas yesterday when I talked about the DR improving health care system and insurance system requiring an insurance from visitors/foreigners. I will wait and see how the “freedom fighters” react to your post.

I hang one on my rearview mirror and have several in a package in my glove compartment.

Maybe it would help if the expats would put on a mask. I assume John's freedom fighters allude to the very deserving, utra gringo rights community here in DR who feel they should be treated differently and laws here don't apply to them. John do I have that correct?

I thought the idea was that you actually wear a mask and not use it in place of your fuzzy dice on the rear mirror, at least that's what the PN, MdeS and MdeP have said for months now?

I don't wear one in the house or to open my garage and hop in my vehicle, only when I go where there are only people or where mandated , like stores or banks. Cant miss it if it is on the mirror post.

True but I think Bob is just trying to avoid going into town in his car only to realize when he gets to the bank that he forgot his mask

they are now recommending goggles or glasses when in public to keep contaminated droplets out of your eyes

Keep up Magoo, we’re talking about leaving home and forgetting mask behind.
I appreciate that, Multiple Ego, but I was responding to this. Also the title of the thread is very inclusive

I don't like Magoo either. Only WW can use it. He and I have an agreement

Actually more for my wife as I never forget, so far, to put on a mask. I actually hate it, and I am not positive they make much of a difference. I believe washing your hands properly and keeping them away from your face is more important, but every little thing that may prevent getting this virus that may be a killer is worth the effort.
