Why did DeWine backtrack on wearing masks?
I understand you can't eat or drink with a mask, but wearing one is a small inconvenience (except for exercise) to be able to go out and do stuff. Just seems irresponsible to open back up and not require masks.
Before people say masks don't really help, Cuomo reported that healthcare workers in NY had below average rates of infection, and that's with them being tested far more than other groups. That would indicate to me that masks provide some protection, but maybe only N95 (which DO suck to wear for extended periods of time).
He flipped the next day after requiring them because so many people complained that they couldn’t wear one. There was a lot of excuses some more legit then others like autism.
