I am trying to remember, though, if "Re (to) below 1" means that infections decline, or remain constant. Regardless, we keep getting these waves despite mask-wearing in public.I got that info right from the link you posted.
I've not really seen an overall issue with compliance except for anti-mask/lockdown rallies and some church services.
Other examples of non-compliance are people gathering in large groups. but hey, it's all about our "freedom" right?
So far, no major spikes appear to be connected with outdoor rallies or church services, unless I have missed something.
Not just freedom, for which many have sacrificed their lives and should never be undervalued, but also other causes. Politicians from several US states and major cities actively encouraged participation in large "mostly peaceful protests" last year, and no spike in infections was linked to those, either.
