    President-elect Joe Biden scolded Republican members of Congress on Friday who did not wear masks during the riots on Capitol Hill last week, as the coronavirus pandemic continues. “What the hell’s the matter with them?” Biden asked. “It’s time to grow up.”

    Pennsylvania reported 6,047 new COVID-19 infections on Friday, a hopeful sign the state won’t see a repeat of the December surge that brought twice that number of new infections daily. The state reported 215 deaths — a relatively high figure but, since people usually die weeks after being infected, one that’s likely a delayed result of the earlier surge. As of Friday morning, 4,848 people were hospitalized with COVID-19, another downward trend and well below the December peak when more than 6,300 were hospitalized. Still, state health officials this week continued to stress the need to wear face masks, avoid...

    On Oct. 18, 2020, Twitter banned the account of Dr. Scott Atlas for defending President Donald Trump’s position on mask mandates. In his tweet, he cited scientific studies, and the tweet contained absolutely no false information. Also in October, Twitter banned the account of The New York Post for accurately reporting on a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop. Today we know these were just the first salvos in this evil company’s assault on American liberty. For all its talk about safety, community, and the health of discourse, we see today that Twitter acts in favor of one interest and one...

    The entire pretext for shutting down our liberties is built upon misinformation.. We are being told that our liberties must be suspended in order to keep hospitals from reaching apocalyptic levels. But what if those levels are just above normal and not anywhere near apocalyptic levels? And what if these lockdown measures do nothing to keep the levels down anyway? Well, if there is anywhere we can cross-check this hypothesis, it would be in Florida, where there is no lockdown or mask mandate. In fact, people are flocking there from out of state to enjoy vacations and host conferences and...
  • Horowitz: Comprehensive analysis of 50 states shows greater spread with mask mandates

    For months, we've been lectured to by the political elites that cases of coronavirus are spreading too quickly and that we must wear masks to stop the spread. The obvious fault with their act of desperation is that they can no longer mask the fact that most parts of the country have already been fully masked for months — long before the ubiquitous spread this fall. Researchers at, a clearinghouse of COVID-19 data trends run by a grassroots group of data analysts, computer scientists, and actuaries, did an analysis of all 50 states divided by those that had mask...

    Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s administration refiled an emergency COVID-19 rule similar to one that expired Monday to continue statewide mask and social distancing requirements for Illinoisans for another 150 days. ... “Any individual who is over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering (a mask or cloth face covering) shall be required to cover their nose and mouth with a face covering when in a public place and unable to maintain at least a six-foot social distance,” the rule states. “This requirement applies whether in an indoor space, such as a store, or in an outdoor space.”

    A Wickenburg, Arizona mom is in very hot water after allegedly beating her kids and stepchildren because they went maskless after testing positive for the novel coronavirus, officials said. Sarah Michelle Boone, 32, has a previous record for domestic abuse. She was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and three counts each of child abuse and assault, court charging documents obtained Thursday by The Associated Press show. Wickenburg police responded on Saturday, Dec. 26 around 7 p.m. to the woman’s house last weekend after a complaint was called in. She allegedly kicked a boy while he was on the floor,...

    Issues & Insights ^ | December 29, 2020 | I & I Editorial Board
    A poll out last week found that 75% of Americans say they support a nationwide mask mandate to fight COVID-19. Why shouldn’t they, since the public has been told repeatedly by politicians and public health officials that these steps will slow the spread of the disease and save lives. Yet new research provides clear evidence that – whatever the lab results of mask-wearing and disease spread might suggest – real-world mask mandates do little, if anything, to slow COVID-19. The survey, conducted by STAT and the Harris Poll, found there is a partisan split on a mask mandate: 60% of...

    Just before the end of 2020, the NCAA has gone ahead and done maybe the most 2020 thing ever. The NCAA has filed a trademark for the term “Mask Madness,” as a way to promote the wearing of masks during the Division I men’s basketball tournament known as “March Madness.” “The National Collegiate Athletic Association made the filing on Dec. 23,” Sporting News reports. “According to the filing, the NCAA wants to use the term both to promote public awareness about the benefits of wearing masks, along with advertising and marketing around masks as a protection of viral infections.

    MURRAY, Utah — A woman in Utah says she was told not to return to a Salt Lake County business for asking an employee to wear a mask. Nicole Taylor says she wanted all-season tires put on her car. So, she went to Jeffery P. Davis Automotive in Murray.(snip) After the tires were put on her car, Taylor says she went to pay, and noticed the receptionist wasn’t wearing a mask. “She was coughing,” said Taylor. “I had a mask on. I asked her if she could put a mask on while I paid. I even offered to give her...

    As the promise of a COVID-19 vaccine is fulfilled amid the rollout of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, the need to continue wearing masks, washing your hands and maintaining social distancing remains mission critical to protecting lives. Public health measures have been the main tools at preventing infection and transmission of the virus. Wearing a face mask can reduce an individual's risk of infection by 70%. With emergency use authorization of the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, there is an opportunity to further decrease the risk of illness due to COVID-19.

    Nearly 40% of voters say they'll be ready to stop wearing masks in public in three months or less, according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Among the 39% of respondents who indicated as much, the largest share — 27% — said they were "already comfortable" doing so, while 5% said it would be "a month or so" before they felt that way and 7% said it would be "two to three months." A 53% majority of voters, meanwhile, said they'd feel comfortable discarding their masks in three to six months (14%), more than six...

    Wearing a used mask could be more dangerous than not wearing one at all when it comes to warding off COVID-19, a new study has found. A new three-layer surgical mask is 65 percent efficient in filtering particles in the air — but when used, that number drops to 25 percent, according to the study published Tuesday in the Physics of Fluids

    Employees of closed businesses have "bills to pay, children to feed, presents to gift and they're going to lose their homes." More than 150 businesses plan to reopen this week in defiance of Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s coronavirus shutdown. The businesses have organized as the Reopen Minnesota Coalition. This group has created a Facebook page and GoFundMe to raise awareness and money for business owners who will likely face legal consequences for their actions. Rural businesses involved in the effort plan to open Wednesday, Dec. 16, while metro businesses will open two days later on Friday. Walz’s current shutdown order...

The findings precede a Danish study that cast doubt on the efficacy of surgical masks and comes as experts emphasize the importance of social distancing. “Which of the following are reasons why you feel confident you are able to protect yourself in public?” the survey asked.
  • Here’s Why Vaccinated People Still Need to Wear a Mask

    New York Times ^ | December 9, 2020 | Apoorva Mandavilli
    The new Covid-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna seem to be remarkably good at preventing serious illness. But it’s unclear how well they will curb the spread of the coronavirus. That’s because the Pfizer and Moderna trials tracked only how many vaccinated people became sick with Covid-19. That leaves open the possibility that some vaccinated people get infected without developing symptoms, and could then silently transmit the virus — especially if they come in close contact with others or stop wearing masks. If vaccinated people are silent spreaders of the virus, they may keep it circulating in their communities, putting...

    Why is it that those celebrities most vocal in lecturing others about ‘the rules’ are the first to break them? British news anchor Piers Morgan has been slammed as a total hypocrite after being caught not wearing a face mask in public over the weekend, despite lecturing everyone else for months about the need to wear a mask. Morgan was pictured getting into a cab in London without a mask on, prompting him to admit he was being an idiot: Morgan claimed that he put the mask on after the picture was taken, but it was too late, given that...

    When Braden Holtby signed with the Vancouver Canucks, he knew he needed new gear for the occasion and, most importantly, a new mask. That meant turning to his long-time mask designer David Gunnarsson, who designs many masks for NHL players, including former Canucks Jacob Markstrom and Eddie Lack. The new mask design from Holtby and Gunnarsson sparked controversy, however, when Gunnarsson posted the mask on his Instagram. It was clearly inspired, if not directly copied from, Indigenous art of the northwest, but the Swedish Gunnarsson is not Indigenous.
