Democrat Tom Wolf. the governor of Pennsylvania is now demanding that citizens wear masks INSIDE of their homes. As of today in Pennsylvania, you must wear a mask,
Indoors or in an enclosed space, where another person or persons who are not members of the individual’s household are present in the same space, irrespective of
physical distance So, if your girlfriend comes over? You have to wear a mask. What if a friend comes over to hang out? You have to wear a mask. Anybody at all that comes into your house that doesn’t live there? Put on your mask. It’s MANDATED.
Ironically, this is happening right as a brand new, large study has come out saying masks provide “statistically insignificant” protection against COVID-19. Of course, you could have also guessed this by the fact that mask mandates don’t seem to have actually worked anywhere.
Early on, when we didn’t have a lot of data to work with, masks seemed like a reasonable precaution. Now that we’re seeing polls showing more than 90% of Americans are wearing masks when they leave home and it still doesn’t seem to be doing much to curb Corona, you’d think the fixation on masks would have gone away. Instead, the less evidence there is that the masks work, the more we seem to be promoting them. They’re the equivalent of the religious charms peasants used to carry around because they hoped it would prevent them from getting the much more lethal Bubonic Plague. We should all take COVID-19 seriously and take precautions, but allowing ourselves to be overcome with hysteria isn’t going to make the situation better.
