CDC Recommends Wearing Masks Six Months a Year

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has updated its stance on masks and is now recommending wearing masks for up to six months a year in health care settings.

"CDC is in the early stages of developing metrics that could be used to guide when to implement select infection prevention and control practices for multiple respiratory viruses," the CDC said in a May 8 update to its recommendations for health care personnel during COVID-19.

"Some facilities might consider recommending masking during the typical respiratory virus season (approximately October-April)," the agency said. The recommendation for six months of masking is applicable only in settings where health care is delivered, including nursing homes and home health. It is not intended for non-health care settings like restaurants.

For COVID-19, the CDC "continues to recommend that healthcare facilities institute facility-wide masking when masks are recommended in the community."

Phil Kerpen, president of the public policy advocacy group American Commitment, criticized the CDC's recommendation for half-year masking.

"This is psychopathic. They are going to pretend masks stop flu despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary over decades just to avoid admitting error. Recall the whole pitch for COV2 masking was that it's supposedly not transmitted like flu!" he said in a May 8 tweet.

According to the CDC, the data on COVID-19 hospital admissions will be used "to help the public decide when masking in the community should be considered." However, the CDC acknowledges that based on data from late 2022 and 2023, "these levels might be less useful to inform masking recommendations in healthcare facilities."

I will comply and wear the mask so that the lack of oxygen lowers my IQ and the duration increases my chances for a bacterial lung infection.

Oh, many of the female doctors too.  I swear, anything the men say will be sexist or racist or just toxicly masculine so we are effectively checkmated. The administrators absolutely love enforcing this BS.

If you haven't figured it out by now, these people have no idea WTF they are doing. No one in charge knows WTF they are doing. These idiots are still clinging to masks over 2 years that it's done absolutely nothing on shit. Just apply the Jim Cramer rule to anyone in charge. Do the fucking opposite of what they say.
