Media, Gov Officials Told Us Not To Wear Masks. They Were Wrong

Now, our intelligentsia are sowing more confusion and distrust as they back-peddle on their previous confusing instructions to not take this obvious precaution for yourself and those around you. On Monday,
President Donald Trump said he could see a recommendation, proposed by former Food and Drug
Administration head Scott Gottlieb, that all Americans wear masks. “We are not going to be wearing masks forever, but it could be for a short period of time after we get back into gear. I could see something like that happening for a period of time,” he said.

In a matter of days, masks have gone from “source of infection when not used properly” to “recommended for all Americans.” So do we wear masks now, or not? Does it matter what kind? If I display symptoms of
coronavirus, how long should I wait before being tested? Can I treat it
at home, and for how long? It’s easy to see how the botched messaging on
such a simple precaution early on will now have bigger consequences for
other guidelines delivered to us down this long road.
