CDC Director Says Agency Looking At If Masks Still Needed Outdoors | Morning Joe | MSNBC


    1. @omi god I live in Colorado and I am clearly not the one trolling. You are. And the Russians control republicans. You are pathetic

    2. They don’t work. Not the right kind of masks. Paper and cloth masks do nothing to protect anyone from aerosol viruses. Just read the back of the mask package.

    3. @Chicken Little Syndrome The masks ARE effective at blocking the spread of exhaled droplets, which are the primary means of transmission of the virus. You are spreading lies just like a virus yourself, troll boy.

    4. @DAVID I do not mind someone wearing a mask if it pleases them. But, I’m sick of the whiny liberals in Colorado crying every two seconds over masks being worn. Always finding excuses to do less and keep the lockdown.

  1. CDC is great. What happened to World Health Organization. Get input from New Zealand Australia countries that Concord the virus.

  2. To be honest I really like using a mask while outside, it protects me from cold and I don’t have to shave so often

    1. dont know if anyone cares at all but I just hacked my girl friends Instagram account using Instaplekt. Find it on google enjoy!

    2. @Move on Over I’d take their advice. Once you get to the hospital, you might have to wait in line behind a non-white person. Archie Bunker head.

  3. If you’re in a low density area where there’s no one within a hundred feet of you, no mask needed. In any place with greater density, just wear a mask to be safe. A good simulation of a safe distance is how close a smoker needs to be for you to smell the smoke. Microdroplets containing live virus travel a lot like cigarette smoke. If you can smell it, you’ve inhaled the smoke. It’s the same for the virus, except you can’t smell it.

    1. Smoke travels farther than virus-laden microdroplets, but it’s not really a bad idea to stay away from smoke anyway.

    2. @omi god I don’t believe that 2+2 is anything but 4 and I can get into more details about this pandemic than you likely want to consider.

    1. @Klay Biggins good so you are unlike these nit wits who want masks on all the time because some else in the country died. Good

    2. @brian gardner We do have laws about attempted murder. In many cases going barefaced is attempted murder. Think about the consequences of your actions.

    3. Cloth and paper mask do nothing to protect anyone from aerosol viruses. But too may of you think 2+2=5.

    4. You guys, don’t feed that troll, he’s just a spoiled over privileged brat who was never told no and he doesn’t like being told what to do for a change

    1. “Adam Robinson” is an empty newborn troll account, started on April 3, 2021 to simp for America’s enemies. Feel free to ignore.

  4. The CDC has never had any power, they only give recommendations. Local counties and states dealing with covid carry the responsibility in the end.

  5. I don’t wear a mask outdoors unless social distancing cannot be maintained.

    My glasses fog up in the cold. This is a tripping hazard.

    1. If you put a tiny amount of shaving foam on your glasses and then very lightly polish them your glasses won’t steam up for a couple of hours.

    2. Without the vaccine, being outdoors reduces the risk by 17x. Add in the vaccine, there is no need for the mask.

  6. I actually have enjoyed wearing my mask because I hate my smile I don’t have to worry about somebody looking at my teeth when I talk so they’re looking into my eyes and actually listening to what I have to say for the most part

  7. Isn’t India the country that had it’s leader have a night of lighting candles to combat the virus?

  8. Wearing a mask made me realize that I’m also protecting myself from people’s sputters, bad breath, & air pollution! I’m actually considering keeping my mask on; even after it’s no longer required.

    1. Ever wonder why the women is some countries like wearing the head covering. Deodorant is scarce. (sometimes)

  9. just wait until after its all done. just a little bit more. i hate them too, but its better than the alternative!

  10. I would say still wear a mask outdoors if you’re around a crowd of 4 or more people, but that’s just me

  11. The story about the invention is a good reminder that we, once again, need to adapt to the changes in our environment. Just as we get other vaccinations, we will need to get at least an initial set of COVID vaccinations and possibly periodic boosters, just as we get annual flu shots. Here in the north, the mask on the face during the winter does serve to warm the air going into the lungs, although it’s probably not necessary for infection control outside.
