    PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Owners and operators of businesses and indoor spaces in Maine must now deny entry to people who refuse to wear a mask, the state’s governor announced on Friday. Maine Gov. Janet Mills, a Democrat, issued an executive order to enforce the new rules. She said the order simplifies the mask rules in the state. Previous rules required people to wear masks indoors, and allowed owners and operators to deny entry to patrons who refused. The stricter standard is needed because of the growth of the virus in Maine, Mills said. “Anyone who still insists on entering a store or other facility without a mask, or insists on taking it off when they come inside, can and should be removed and charged with criminal trespassing,” she said. Mills said the executive order also makes clear that a medical exemption is not an excuse to enter a business...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) – Manchester Police are asking the public to help identify two men who assaulted a 7-Eleven store clerk on Nov. 30 after one was asked to wear a mask. According to police, the injured employee said that a while male had entered the store on 85 S. Main Street in Manchester without a mask on. After being told he needed to comply with COVID-19 protocols, the man argued with the employee and said he would come back. The employee told police that the man ended up returning shortly after with another man. The two then brought down the plexiglass barrier at the counter and hopped over it before punching the employee. They ripped the employee’s shirt off before running out of the store. The scuffle resulted in several items being knocked off the counter and a broken credit card reader, police said. One suspect was described as...

This story from Kaiser Health News also ran on NPR.  WASHINGTON, Missouri — In August, local officials in this small city an hour west of St. Louis voted against requiring residents to wear masks to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. On Nov. 23, with COVID cases surging and the local hospital overflowing, the City Council brought a mask order back for another vote. As protesters marched outside, Councilman Nick Obermark, an electrician, was the sole member of the nonpartisan council to change his vote, causing the mandate to pass.

    CHICAGO — Coronavirus vaccines are coming to Chicago — but life still won’t return to normal for many months. City and state officials have repeatedly said the vaccine campaign will be slow because demand is high while supply is low. Vaccines aren’t expected to be available to the general public until late spring or the summer. In the meantime, people will have to continue living as they have during the pandemic, which means following safety measures like wearing masks, social distancing and washing their hands frequently, the city’s and state’s top doctors have said. That likely won’t change even after you’ve been able to get vaccinated. Dr. Allison Arwady, head of the Chicago Department of Public Health, has said people will still need to wear masks, social distance and take other safety measures after being vaccinated.

    A video of a woman becoming combative while refusing to wear a mask at a Hudson Valley department store has gone viral after she went on a tirade against customers asking her to cover up during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the video, a man at a Marshall’s in Orange County, located in the Town of Newburgh, can be seen and heard asking the only person on line without a facial covering to put one on, at which point she refused, and went on an expletive-laced tirade against him and other customers waiting to pay. Video of the exchange can be seen on YouTube here. Note: Graphic language. In the video, the man repeatedly implores the woman to put a mask on, to which she refuses, adding that if her kids - who were wearing masks - weren’t there, she would spit in his face.

    With three potential coronavirus vaccines showing promise, and two awaiting authorization from the FDA, state and federal officials have begun announcing ambitious distribution plans to get vaccines to millions of Americans starting as soon as next week. It will take months to reach everyone who wants the shots, but some optimistic Americans are already asking: Will I still have to wear a mask after I'm vaccinated? "Eventually I think we won't, but I think until we know that this vaccine is working, we are going to have to wear a mask," pediatrician Dr. Dyan Hes said on CBSN. Pfizer and BioNTech have provided data to the FDA showing that their coronavirus vaccine is safe and 95% effective in clinical trials. An FDA advisory committee is scheduled to meet Thursday to consider emergency approval. Moderna is also seeking authorization for its vaccine, which it says is 94.5% effective based on preliminary...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A collaboration between the artist and activist community has resulted in a PSA urging people to wear a mask. The “We Wear The Mask” campaign was the brain child of Raeisha Williams, Chantyl Allen and Nekima Levy Armstrong. Its message and music is helping get more people in communities disproportionately impacted by the virus to wear a mask. “We Wear The Mask” is a takeoff the original poem by one of the most influential black poets in American literature, Paul Laurence Dunbar. The words used then still ring true today. “That’s what Laurence Dunbar’s poem was all about — sustaining and wearing a mask when we are out and about. And so for this campaign it’s twofold: we are black, so we have to wear a mask to keep ourselves protected physically from COVID, but also from white supremacy and racism,” Williams said. She wanted this message...
    The COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna claim to be over 90% effective in preventing disease, but experts say you should still wear a mask even if you are inoculated. That is because the pharmaceutical companies tracked people who became ill after they got vaccinated in clinical trials, and not asymptomatic individuals. Research shows as many as 30% of people with COVID-19 show no symptoms, and could be silent spreaders. According to The New York Times, Michal Tal, an infectious disease specialist at Stanford University, says "a lot of people are thinking that once they get vaccinated, theyre not going to have to wear masks anymore," adding it is critical people continue donning face coverings since they still could be contagious. Another reason to be cautious is intramuscular vaccines, like the Pfizer and Moderna candidates, stimulate the entire immune system to produce antibodies that pool throughout the body and might...
    A man at a Florida Best Buy was charged over the weekend with disorderly conduct for allegedly coughing and spitting throughout the store while refusing to wear a mask. The incident occurred at a store location in Vero Beach when employees asked 51-year-old Alton George Ashby to cover his face multiple times to help prevent the possible spread of the coronavirus, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday. According to the arrest affidavit, Ashby first requested help at the Geek Squad counter but was denied service after refusing to cover his face. He then allegedly coughed and spat around the help desk before he “continued to walk around the connected department to do the same thing.” Ashby's arrest affidavit added he was accused of sneezing over counters, wiping hands across shelves, and pulling masks to the floor. After refusing to leave the store, he was later pulled over by police. He told...
    By Leah Asmelash, Nakia McNabb and Amanda Watts | CNN While health officials agree face masks help prevent the spread of Covid-19, state and local governments have varied widely on implementation of mask rules. Now, President-elect Joe Biden wants to change that. Biden’s office has released plans that his administration intends to implement in the beginning of his term, and one is a national mask mandate “by working with governors and mayors.” Most states already have some type of mask mandate, but some have no statewide rule — either leaving it as a recommendation or giving the authority to local officials. Here are the states with no statewide mask requirement. Alaska Alaska does not require the use of masks, limit group size or business operations. All the state does is encourage Alaskans to do their part to limit the spread of Covid-19, recommending that residents practice social distancing and wear...

    There's one place where any mask is not better than no mask, U.S. officials are warning: in an MRI machine.  Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulators warned Tuesday that masks with metal nose pieces or that might have metal in the material of the face coverings are dangerous to wear while undergoing the scan.  Their warning comes after one unidentified patient's face was burned after they kept a mask on while undergoing an MRI on their neck.  Burns found on the patient were 'consistent with the shape of the face mask,' the FDA writes.   Plenty of safer options are available - homemade cloth masks, and those without nose clips - and doctors and nurses should have them on hand to offer, the FDA said.  But if your mask has a flexible strip that allows you to pinch it to the bridge of your nose, the radiowaves of an MRI could...

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff MORGANTOWN (KDKA) – West Virginia University and the Centers For Disease Control completed their mask observation study. The goal of the seven-week experiment was to find out how many students were wearing masks and if they were wearing them correctly. Their findings discovered that out of more than 3,100 people, nearly 84% wore masks and just over 16% didn’t wear masks. Of those that did wear them, 86% wore their masks correctly. WVU says it plans to continue this project in the spring.

    New York State health department officials are sending teams of mask enforcers to 'urgently' crack down on two upstate counties where people are refusing to wear them despite surging COVID-19 numbers.  The teams will be sent to Orange County and Rockland County which are around 65 and 35 miles northwest of New York City respectively.  They have some of the highest COVID numbers in the state and have from the beginning.  Both are considered 'micro-clusters' because the spread there is more out of control than the state average. Both counties also have large orthodox Jewish communities.   It is against the law not to wear a mask in the state of New York. Anyone who doesn't may be fined $50 on the spot if they do not comply.  Health Department spokesman Gary Homes told The New York Post it wasn't just happening in those areas.  NYPD officers hand out mask...

    A woman was kicked off a Frontier Airlines flight last week after cursing at a staffer and refusing to wear a facemask. The incident unfolded on a Dec. 3 flight from Cincinnati to Tampa, according to video obtained by Storyful. “Ma’am, you have to wear your mask on the entire flight,” an airline worker can be heard telling the woman. “If you are unable to do so, you will be removed from the flight.” “Thanks, a–hole,” the woman responds, according to the video. An officer is later seen gathering the woman’s luggage and escorting her from the plane, prompting applause from other passengers. One passenger said to the woman, “Bye, Karen” as she was being led out. “Face coverings are required throughout a traveler’s journey when flying with Frontier,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.  The policy, the spokesperson said, “is clearly explained during the reservations and check-in...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Research has shown that masks are safe to use during exercise and now the nation’s leading group of pediatricians is recommending masks during youth sports. The American Academy of Pediatrics is calling on student-athletes to wear face masks during group training and competition. They said there are some sports where mask use could block vision or become a choking hazard though, like in competitive cheerleading, some gymnastics, wrestling, and water sports. Masks may not be necessary for some outdoor sports like golf and singles tennis, but for the majority, kids should be wearing masks even when on the court, ice, or field. Everyone should wear a mask on the sidelines, in the locker room, and while traveling. Teams should continue to maintain small consistent practice groups, minimize travel, and disinfect regularly, said the AAP.
    (CBS4) – President-Elect Joe Biden will ask Americans to wear a mask for the 100 days after his inauguration to help slow the spread of COVID-19. CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida says it would make a huge difference on the death rate, the number of hospitalizations and number of people getting sick. “It really is not a national mandate to wear masks, that legally cannot be done by the federal government,” Hnia explained. “This really is the first time, though, there is some federal guidance that hopefully will be universally adopted. States and local governments are the ones who really do need to implement any mask mandates or guidelines regarding wearing a mask.” “We know that if everyone, or if we could even get 95% of the people let’s say to mask up for a 90-day period, three months, we could cut the death rate by about 200,000 Americans.”...

    The Oregon Medical Board suspended the license of Dr. Steven LaTulippe, a family practitioner who refuses to wear a mask in his clinic and has encouraged others to do the same, according to Portland NBC affiliate KGW. While at a rally for President Donald Trump in November, LaTulippe announced that neither he nor his staff members wear a mask while working, which violates the state order that requires all health care workers to wear face-covers while at work. The suspension was issued “due to the board’s concern for the safety and welfare of licensee’s current and future patients,” according to a statement on the Oregon Medical Board website. “I and my staff, none of us, not once, wore a mask in my clinic,” LaTulippe said at the “Stop the Steal” rally, encouraging people to “take off the mask of shame.” LaTulippe’s statement is refuted by the state, the federal government, the...

    Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace made it clear to a top Trump administration official that Joe Biden is indeed the president-elect, following his declared victory in November. Wallace alerted Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar multiple times that Biden is the president-elect after the secretary referred to the Democrat as the vice president. When asked if the country would be in a better position had President Trump taken efforts to promote masking like Biden is with a recommended 100-day mask mandate, Azar defended Trump but was quickly interrupted after referring to Biden as the wrong title. "I welcome Vice President Biden to the club since the middle of April, the president’s guidelines for reopening ..." Azar said before Wallace corrected him. "The president-elect, sir. He’s the president-elect," Wallace said. Wallace made it clear once again after Azar finished his response. "First of all, it's the President-Elect...

    The World Health Organization (WHO) issued an update to coronavirus mask-wearing guidance for the first time in nearly six months. In the update, the health agency advises wearing a mask as part of “a comprehensive package of prevention and control measures” to limit the spread of COVID-19. “A mask alone, even when used correctly, is insufficient to provide adequate protection or source control,” the Dec. 1 guidelines said. “Other infection prevention and control (IPC) measures include hand hygiene, physical distancing of at least 1 metre, avoidance of touching one’s face, respiratory etiquette, adequate ventilation in indoor settings, testing, contact tracing, quarantine and isolation.” A meter is equivalent to about 3 feet. The agency further stated that depending on the type of mask used, it can “be used either for protection of health persons or to prevent onward transmission (source control).” WHO recommends that anyone with suspected or confirmed coronavirus wear...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A South Florida doctor has come up with a design for a shield said to be effective against the spread of the coronavirus for athletes required to wear helmets to play sports. They call it CAGEMASK, a two-layer reusable, washable cloth mask that is easily attached to the protective cage of a sports helmet assuring a proper fit. Unlike regular face masks, CAGEMASK is for athletes who use a protective helmet. It does not inhibit breathing or performance, according to its manufacturer. “CAGEMASK is the opportunity for people playing football, hockey, and lacrosse to take extra precautions to allow themselves to play safely,” said Courtney Young, Athletic Director At Riviera Prep and one of the partners of CAGEMASK.

The DePaul and Creighton women's teams have taken it a step further: Their players are wearing masks while they are on the court competing. “The first week I complained every day, but now it’s normal as we wear them every day in practice,” said Deja Church, a senior guard for DePaul. “It’s kind of normal now. I don’t like it, but whatever keeps us and the coaches and everyone safe is what matters most.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM The NCAA does not require masks on the court, though it recommends them on the bench along with social distancing guidance for its member schools and other steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    (CNN)We've got this. That's what I thought when the Covid-19 pandemic first hit the US and experts were just asking Americans to wash our hands -- and then wear masks and avoid each other as best as we could.

Cuomo wasn’t wearing a mask at the time, nor were his five top aides on the dais, including state Health Commissioner Howard Zucker and SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras. But the governor’s spokespeople, photographer and state trooper detail had masks on, as did all of the reporters in the room, which held about two dozen people in total.
