Yahoo! News reports on double-masking guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other new recommendations such as wearing masks with nose wires. The article quotes Thomas A. Russo, MD, professor of medicine and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases, who said the new guidance is “very helpful” for the general public. But he points out that it’s unlikely to resonate with people who don’t think masks are effective at preventing the spread of the virus. “There are people who do wear masks and those who don’t wear masks,” he says. “But this will enable people who are wearing masks to up their game if they want to reassess what they have.” The report was carried by other media websites.
