Factual vs. Emotional

Please refer to facts as opposed to the emotional  response generated mostly by media outlets.

You may believe that masking is reducing viral spread but the fact of the matter is, most masks being worn provide little to no protection from the virus. Most masks are generic PPE, not N95 masks, that shield airborne viruses. Is there data to support that cotton and other basic masking reduces viral spread?  Italy did not implement such stringent guidelines and we have made zero attempt to implement their obvious best practice. The current masking does not prevent spread of any virus that’s thought to be spread via saliva droplets or respiratory function. Stop perpetrating fear and focus on factual information to lead the people that placed you in office. True leaders don’t instill fear, they lead to adapt and overcome.
