CDC Now Says Americans Should Wear Masks Indoors
If they are around someone they don’t live with.
12 February, 2021
The CDC is now recommending Americans wear face masks indoors “anytime” they are around someone who they don’t live with.
The advice was contained in a February 10 update that appeared on the CDC website pertaining to face coverings.
The CDC is now urging people wear the masks “anytime you are indoors or outdoors with people you don’t live with.”
The advice follows another recommendation by the public health body that Americans should begin wearing two face masks instead of one.
The question of how many face masks Americans should wear scaled heights of absurdity when Dr. Scott Segal told NBC News that Americans should consider wearing FOUR face masks if they want the most effective protection against spreading COVID-19.
“If you put three or four masks on, it’s going to filter better because it’s more layers of cloth,” said Dr. Scott Segal, chair of anesthesiology at Wake Forest Baptist Health
This is not the first time that Americans have been told to wear masks at home.
Dr. Deborah Birx previously said face coverings should be worn indoors by people who live in multi-generational homes.
“If you’re in multi-generational households, and there’s an outbreak in your rural area or in your city, you need to really consider wearing a mask at home,” said Birx.
As we previously highlighted, the Netherlands has refused to enforce the wearing of masks, while health authorities in Sweden have described them as “pointless.”
