    Seems some are worried about the destruction shutdown is causing. Seems some are worried about being homeless and broke. Seems some don't believe they can hide from a virus. Lots of people with their own thoughts and opinions.

    The truly ignorant deniers go to parties and hang out with groups not wearing masks. Like Democrat governor of CA, Gavin Newsom.

    Because trump downplayed it.  He is incapable of admitting to a mistake, so once he said it was nothing to worry about, he couldn't be an adult and change his tune.  

    I suspect that if he had listened to experts, and spoke truthfully to the matter early on, we would have a lot fewer deaths.  As it is, there are still idiots who think it's "just the flu", and refuse to take precautions.  Look for another huge spike in a week or two when people hold super spreader Thanksgiving events.

    Because they do not believe it is that serious.

    Because forcing people to shutdown their business an become reliant on government handouts for their living has terrible social ramifications, and way worse implications than the benefits accrued by the lockdowns or mandates themselves.

    Because of government. If they would have listened to suggestion, instead of the government having to step in and say "okay, you won't do it, then we say you must", we wouldn't be here.

    They aren’t. But shutting down everything and hiding at home as the democrats want is not an option.
