Bill de Blasio instructing Big Apple residents to wear two face masks throughout springtime.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is instructing Big Apple residents to wear two face masks throughout the springtime on into summer.
de Blasio made the demand at a press conference Tuesday, advising New Yorkers to double mask “through June.”
“Through June, keep doing exactly what you are doing,” de Blasio stated. “Not just wear a mask, wear two,” later adding the city may “continue that guidance for quite a while depending on what is going on.”
The new guidance comes as NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci has repeatedly flip flopped on the effectiveness of masks, claiming people could double up masks, after initially claiming masks aren’t effective at stopping the spread of a virus.
