Dr. Anthony Fauci has been reluctant to support a federal mask mandate.

"A national mandate probably would not work," he said on Sept 15 during a news conference with Vermont Gov. Phil Scott.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been urging Americans to use masks for months. "I have trust in the American people that if we put a strong emphasis on the importance of wearing masks, that we will come around and do that and get that percentage up above the relatively low percentage of people that are using masks," Fauci said on July 21 on NPR's Morning Edition.

But he has said before that he doesn't think a federal law would be the way to go.

"I don't like to be authoritarian from the federal government, but at the local level, if governors and others essentially mandate the use of masks when you have an outbreak, I think that would be very important," Fauci told Alabama Sen. Doug Jones during a Facebook live event in July.

Until now.

"Well, if people are not wearing masks, then maybe we should be mandating it," Fauci told CNN's Erin Burnett Friday.

Covid-19 has been worsening across the United States, with cases rising in 32 states Friday and holding steady in 17 more. The University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation said the country was entering a winter surge as new infections passed 75,000 in a single day on Friday and more than 800 deaths were reported.

Mask mandates may be tricky to enforce, but it might be time to call for them, Fauci said.

"There's going to be a difficulty enforcing it, but if everyone agrees that this is something that's important and they mandate it and everybody pulls together and says, you know, we're going to mandate it but let's just do it, I think that would be a great idea to have everybody do it uniformly," he said.

As cooler weather comes, people need to "double down" on measures that work, Fauci said. "Universal mask wearing" is one, he said, as is keeping a distance from others and frequent hand washing. "They sound very simple. But we're not uniformly doing that and that's one of the reasons we're seeing these surges," Fauci said.

Joe Biden, who as recently as Wednesday was claiming he would have the authority as president to impose a nationwide mask mandate, suddenly reversed himself last night. "I cannot mandate people wearing masks," the Democratic presidential nominee admitted during a CNN "town hall," adding that he could still require masks in federal buildings and on federal land.

from mid Sept.

universal mask mandates aren't going to go anywhere
 
just went to a national forest for a few days two weeks ago.
one way hiking trails and masks are already in place.

this is just more "I would do the same shit better" bullshit.
 
Still haven't had anyone yet to give me a good reason not to just let it run its course. Shutting down the economy/world for the 2% most unhealthy people is insane. If 20% of population have had it. There's pretty much no way to stop it if it is as communicable as we are lead to believe.

Wisconsin is blowing up with new cases lately. I still refuse to wear a mask. If I go to a business and they say I have to have one, i tell them i will go to another that doesnt require it and leave. The list of local businesses that i like to support is shrinking. Wear a mask if you feel it's the way to go or stay home, dont tell me how to live my life.
 
He did an interview with one of the networks last week and said he could see mask being needed into 2022

BS - by then, he'll have mandated masks for the next corona virus... They will never say makes are not needed - the moment that happens and cases spike, they'll yank it back.

But hey, we're now into cold and flu season, so I'd be willing to bet that they will be counted as Covid as well.

Fauci is and always has been a fucking alarmist and an attention whore. Worse thing Trump ever did was let him on camera to talk himself. The guy lives in a bubble with little understanding of how his opinions will effect the real world.
 
Then what? You put it on like a bitch to please the other bitch?

Don't be that bitch.
Lighten up, Kevin........:flipoff2:


I respect company policy because I understand I do not have a right to shop in a given store.

If an employee asks me; I'll put it on.


It's absolutely no different than a 'no shirt & shoes-no service' store/company policy.

If one doesn't like said policy; one does not have to shop there.


And the only reason I carry it is to shut people up by showing it to them IF they challenge me.

If a private citizen asks me to put it on; I'll tell them to get fucked.
