U.S. Surgeon General: I Wear a Mask ‘Depending on My Setting’

‘ Each of us need to make our own decisions based on our set of circumstances, based on what’s happening in our neighborhood and county’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MURTHY: “Well, that’s a good question, Dana. It depends on my setting. I do have two children at home who are unvaccinated because they’re too young to be eligible yet for a vaccine. If I’m in an area where I think there may be a lot of folks who are unvaccinated, out of an abundance of caution I will wear my mask in indoor settings. I don’t wear my mask when I’m outdoors. When I’m in settings with people who are fully vaccinated, I don’t wear masks as well. That’s based on my individual preference and where I spend time in the country where there is virus circulating. Each of us need to make our own decisions based on our set of circumstances, based on what’s happening in our neighborhood and county.”
