The Charlotte Observer reminds us what can happen when idiotic people believe not wearing a mask is a good idea during a pandemic.

“Folks did not wear masks or observe physical distancing at this gathering, and 14 people who attended subsequently tested positive for COVID-19,” McCracken said.

The family members went about their daily lives before they started showing symptoms — which can appear anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That included going to work and “taking a beach trip with other families,” according to the release.

“This set into motion a person-to-person contact chain that to date has spread COVID-19 to 41 people in 9 different families and 8 different workplaces,” McCracken said.

Yes, you just keep believing coronavirus is no big deal. And that you can’t get it.
