BLITZER Here is another ░░░░░░░░ we re getting when ░░░░░░░░ comes to masks And ░░░░░░░░ of us should be ░░░░░░░░ masks when we re ░░░░░░░░ especially when we re ░░░░░░░░ other people You say ░░░░░░░░ one is just making ░░░░░░░░ people wear a mask ░░░░░░░░ with these more transmissible ░░░░░░░░ on the rise right ░░░░░░░░ should people be making ░░░░░░░░ change to more effective ░░░░░░░░ whether that s double ░░░░░░░░ or using that N95 ░░░░░░░░ Well Wolf this is ░░░░░░░░ question you re absolutely ░░░░░░░░ I get asked this ░░░░░░░░ more than any other ░░░░░░░░ Right now the CDC ░░░░░░░░ last time we checked ░░░░░░░░ was yesterday is really ░░░░░░░░ to be looking at ░░░░░░░░ data on the differences ░░░░░░░░ masks whether you do ░░░░░░░░ KN95 or a cloth ░░░░░░░░ versus surgical mask the ░░░░░░░░ of information that you ░░░░░░░░ to have We have ░░░░░░░░ of that information already ░░░░░░░░ know that the standard ░░░░░░░░ mask for the most ░░░░░░░░ is better than a ░░░░░░░░ mask but it depends ░░░░░░░░ the cloth mask But ░░░░░░░░ s not the question ░░░░░░░░ people are asking They ░░░░░░░░ asking should you wear ░░░░░░░░ masks That s the ░░░░░░░░ thing to do So ░░░░░░░░ the CDC says right ░░░░░░░░ as you mentioned correctly ░░░░░░░░ most important thing is ░░░░░░░░ should wear a mask ░░░░░░░░ don t have enough ░░░░░░░░ yet and the CDC ░░░░░░░░ be collecting this as ░░░░░░░░ whether or not two ░░░░░░░░ are going to be ░░░░░░░░ than one mask But ░░░░░░░░ know if you use ░░░░░░░░ sense and say until ░░░░░░░░ get the data if ░░░░░░░░ physical barrier with one ░░░░░░░░ works it makes common ░░░░░░░░ that two layers or ░░░░░░░░ layers and you should ░░░░░░░░ a double layer mask ░░░░░░░░ one mask anyway but ░░░░░░░░ you want to put ░░░░░░░░ extra mask on there ░░░░░░░░ nothing wrong with that ░░░░░░░░ can t formally recommend ░░░░░░░░ because we don t ░░░░░░░░ the science behind it ░░░░░░░░ I would not hesitate ░░░░░░░░ tell someone if they ░░░░░░░░ to wear two masks ░░░░░░░░ ahead In fact Wolf ░░░░░░░░ may have seen me ░░░░░░░░ two masks on And ░░░░░░░░ reason I do is ░░░░░░░░ when you put a ░░░░░░░░ mask on if you ░░░░░░░░ a cloth mask over ░░░░░░░░ gives a much smoother ░░░░░░░░ in the sense of ░░░░░░░░ tight but not too ░░░░░░░░ So again although we ░░░░░░░░ not recommending it until ░░░░░░░░ get data there s ░░░░░░░░ wrong with doing that ░░░░░░░░ Yeah sort of makes ░░░░░░░░ common sense It s ░░░░░░░░ so critical At least ░░░░░░░░ one mask But if ░░░░░░░░ can wear two There ░░░░░░░░ nothing wrong with that.”
