White House directs West Wing staffers to wear masks

The White House on Monday ordered all West Wing employees to wear masks at work unless they are sitting at their desks. The directive comes after at least two members of the White House staff tested positive for the coronavirus last week, including a military aide to the president and the vice president’s spokeswoman.

Why relate this to cases in the White House? Masks are 100% ineffective at preventing transmission of covid according to every study done so far. The only purpose of this move is optics. They see polls and if people view it negatively they do what they need to to keep as many Americans in support as possible. If you care about your health and immune system, and as long as you are not infectious or immune compromised, you should refuse to wear a mask for medical reasons whenever asked. Masks were developed to protect patients in surgery and quarantines are measures developed for sick people not those who are well. Stop using the wrong treatments for a given situation. That can only be negative and benefits no one.

Is it just me or does the media seem really obsessed with masks and trying to get Trump to wear a mask?
