How long do you think wearing face masks in public will be mandatory for?

Update:

I'm pretty confident that the virus will go away someday, even if it's not for a long long time yet. Once we get a vaccine (obviously we don't know when that'll be but it'll be worth the wait imo) then I think things will be much better!

    Forever, or until we get a vaccine for Covid. Which will be next year at the earliest.

    Unless you live in a very crowded city and want to try to "protect" yourself or your job entails working with the public, wearing a mask in public isn't mandatory anywhere.

    Go ahead and wear a mask if you want to. That's up to you, but they're useless. The cloth or paper masks that people are wearing in public won't prevent you from contracting a contagious disease, and they won't prevent you from spreading a contagious disease to other people. That's been proven. All those masks do is hamper your ability to breathe properly while you're wearing one.

    If anyone is waiting for a corona virus vaccine before they stop wearing a mask, they're going to have a long wait. A vaccine hasn't even been formulated yet. After a vaccine is finally formulated, it still has to undergo 16 to 18 months of human test trials and the results of the test trials analyzed for several more months, before the vaccine will be deemed to be safe and released for use. There MIGHT be a corona virus vaccine available some time in 2022.

    As long as they are needed.  And the more people fail to wear those masks the longer will be the period where they will be needed.  The virus is not going away. masks and distancing will be needed for a long long time...until therapies and vaccines are developed and distributed.
