If you can’t find it on the website you will get emails and notifications before your trip. Announcements will be made in the station. Arguing that it is not in writing somewhere is a way to ensure that you will be put off of the train before your destination.I'm trying to find this info. Is it on the Amtrak site and where?
Feel free to stay in Oklahoma.Now just get rid of the muzzle masks!
When I booked my upcoming Day trip with AGR on the Phone, the Friendly,Professional Agent asked me if he needed to read the Amtrak COVID Protocols,including Mandatory Mask wearing in all Stations, on Platforms and aboard all Amtrak Trains.If you book a ticket online you have to check that you read the COVID/Mask policy before you can proceed with your purchase.
Thanks for letting me know that info. For some reason I am not getting notifications from post I am active in. I will have to fix that. I don't mind wearing the mask but I have a problem with it. I have breathing problems. And one of my ears is not even with the other one so the mask doesn't fit under my glasses correctly. I just wish more people would JUST GET THE SHOT.If you can’t find it on the website you will get emails and notifications before your trip. Announcements will be made in the station.

Ear savers. I bought some from an Etsy seller and they made all the difference. I taught two semesters mostly in person (fall 20 and spring 21) and used those every day, helped the masks stay snug and also prevented the backs of my ears from chafing from the elastic.They sell little plastic bands that go behind the head which you clip the ear loops on to to take them off your ears. Can make a big difference in wearability, and are very inexpensive.
I have found that using a defogger on glasses is an effective way to combat the fogging up of glasses. You can get it at CVS or Walgreens and I’m sure at Rite Aid.There are two basic types of transmission:
VIRUSES are for the most part common within community BUT TRAVEL could be an unknown virus yet to be discovered and although it hasn’t happened very deadly. PLUS the non-Vaxers could get infected if they don’t wear a mask.
we are almost there
I'm not sure you need a double-blind study to evaluate the effectiveness of various health policy measures. We certainly never used double blind studies to formulate environmental policy. But, in any event, here's a listing of relevant studies compiled by the health department of your neighbor to the north:Other that at Drs offices, hospitals etc. we are over with the masks in SC. I’m still waiting for the science on mask wearing. I’ve seen no report on a double blind peer review study concerning their effectiveness is stopping the transmission of COVID.
There is a difference between the infection mitigation required when a person is in surgery and is literally cut open and that required to mitigate airborne, inhaled virus in a public setting. Until the pandemic, doctors, nurses and other medical staff were not masked for routine office visits, lab procedures, x-rays, etc. So, yes, if I'm in surgery, I want everyone masked. If I'm in the supermarket or on a train, the need is less obvious.How many of the people who object to wearing a mask on the basis that there has not been enough research would feel comfortable having a surgical team open them up for serious surgery without masks on?
I'm also pulling my hair out over one of my friends who doesn't "want to put chemicals in my body," but at least she will wear a mask when reminded.Feel free to stay in Oklahoma.

1. Get the shot
2. Wear a mask
3. Stay at home
I’m fine with vaccinated folks removing their masks but mindless incubators who refuse to take any corrective action while complaining about freedom get no sympathy from me.
