“CDC mask guidelines are confusing — and they have been from the start – MarketWatch”

Good to see the usual, clear and unambiguous public health communications:

You can take off your mask “except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance,” the CDC says. You still need a mask on buses and trains, in museums and most stores, possibly at your place of work, but not inside restaurants, except when you’re going to the rest room.

Adding to the confusion: Many epidemiologists say Americans should continue to wear masks. According to a New York Times survey, 29% say they thought people would be wearing masks in public spaces for another year, while 26% said they believed people would do so for another year, and 26% said they thought mask wearing would continue from now on.

Read the whole thing. It’s been a cock up of inconsistent, contradictory and incoherent messaging since day one.
