    Abigail Breslin announced Friday that her father has died of COVID-19, just two weeks after she urged fans to wear face masks.  Breslin, who is 24, shared a series of throwback photos of her father with a lengthy statement in which she remembered him as "perfect, amazing, heroic" and shared touching anecdotes about his life. "Oh wow. Hard to write this. Harder than I thought. I’m in shock and devastation," Breslin's statement begins.

    On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio encouraged New Yorkers to wear two masks at least until June. De Blasio urged citizens in the Big Apple to add a second mask to their personal protective equipment arsenal in a morning press conference. “Through June, keep doing exactly what you are doing,” he said. “Not just wear a mask, wear two.” De Blasio further obscured the timeline for the practice, admitting the local government may “continue that guidance for quite a while depending on what is going on.” The unpopular mayor’s position echoes remarks made by President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, in January. “This is a physical covering to prevent droplets and virus to get in,” Dr. Fauci said at the time. “So if you have a physical covering with one layer, and you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is urging Big Apple residents to wear two masks instead of one to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 as new variants of the coronavirus circulating in the United States are reportedly more contagious than the original. De Blasio’s Health Department has adopted the policy of recommending double-masking just days after the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance. ‘We know that even as the vaccine is here, the need to keep wearing a mask is paramount, it’s crucial,’ the mayor said. ‘It’s amazing of how all the things that we’ve learned in this crisis, maybe the most profound is the power of a mask.’ New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's top health officials are recommending that residents of the Big Apple don two masks instead of one to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 Wearing a thicker fabric...
    Florida authorities have arrested two men who allegedly pretended to be U.S. Marshals to avoid wearing masks.  Walter Wayne Brown Jr. and Gary Brummett were arrested on Feb. 11 for impersonating a federal officer after a hotel employee became suspicious and called the cops, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.  The two men were carrying fake Marshal badges that said they were “Cherokee Nation Marshal.” They reportedly told hotel employees that they would be arrested if they tried to make them wear a mask, according to a complaint.  They wore the badges on their belt while wearing fake cards around their neck that said they were exempt from wearing a mask.

    Wearing a cloth mask over a surgical mask or a tightly fitted cover is more effective in decreasing the spread of COVID-19, according to a study released Wednesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The agency conducted multiple lab experiments that spaced two artificial heads six feet apart to measure the best protection method against the transmission of particles carrying COVID-19. The results showed that virus transmission could be reduced by 96.5 percent if an infected individual and an uninfected individual both wore two cloth and surgical masks or a tightly fitted surgical cover. Researchers found that only wearing one mask blocked approximately 40 percent of particles in another experiment. In contrast, a combination of a cloth mask over a surgical mask (double-masking) stopped particles by over 92 percent. The CDC emphasized that if a medical mask is worn alone with a “mask fitter,” it could still...
    WASHINGTON -- U.S. government researchers found that two masks are better than one in slowing coronavirus spread, but health officials stopped short of recommending that everyone double up.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday reported the results of a lab experiment that spaced two artificial heads 6 feet from each other and checked to see how many coronavirus-sized particles spewed by one were inhaled by the other.The researchers found that wearing one mask - surgical or cloth - blocked around 40% of the particles coming toward the head that was breathing in. When a cloth mask was worn on top of a surgical mask, about 80% were blocked.When both the exhaling and inhaling heads were double-masked, more than 95% of the particles were blocked, said the CDC's Dr. John Brooks.EMBED More News Videos A WakeMed physician said it's an individual choice.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A medical expert is offering some safety tips about face masks during the coronavirus pandemic amid concerns about a new variant that could spread “very rapidly.” CBS4’s Peter D’Oench spoke Tuesday with Dr. Dushyantha Jayaweera, an infectious disease specialist with the University of Miami Health’s Miller School of Medicine. RELATED: Sen. Marco Rubio Displeased That Senate Impeachment Trial Moving Forward White House Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci recently said wearing two faces at once during the pandemic would likely provide more protection. The nation also saw images from President Joe Biden’s inauguration of people double masking. D’Oench asked Dr. Jayaweera about the idea of wearing two face masks at once. Dr. Jayaweera said, “The CDC has recommended single face masks. They have not gone to say two face masks. But there are some studies which said two masks offer better protection.

    Amir Israel/INSIDER When you buy through our links, we may earn money from our affiliate partners. Learn more. One of the best protections against COVID-19, along with social distancing and avoiding indoor gatherings, is to wear a well-fitting mask. If you only have a single-layer or loose-fitting mask, it's smart to protect yourself as much as possible by wearing two at once. The best way to double up is to wear one cloth mask over another, or to wear a cloth mask over a surgical mask. This article was medically reviewed by Aimee Desrosiers, PA-C, MS, MPH, a practicing infectious diseases physician assistant in Washington, DC. The CDC strongly recommends (and has even mandated) widespread mask-wearing in public, saying that it's essential to slowing the spread of COVID-19. But as more is learned about the pandemic and the transmission of the virus, health officials have begun advocating for not only...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci further clarified his position on wearing two masks Wednesday, noting there was “nothing wrong” with people doing it to stop the spread of the coronavirus. “There’s nothing wrong with people wearing two masks. I often myself wear two masks,” Fauci said in a White House virtual coronavirus briefing with reporters Wednesday morning. Fauci said that his advice about double masking was his “opinion.” “I say there’s no recommendation. However, there are many people who take the common-sense approach,” he said. Fauci added the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) did not officially recommend double masking based on scientific data. “Can we make a general recommendation that doesn’t have a scientific basis yet? No,” he said. Fauci warned that the mutants and variants of the coronavirus still threatened to spread across the country and that mask-wearing and social distancing were critical to slow the spread. He expressed...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Beginning Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now requires people traveling on planes, trains, buses or other forms of public transit to wear masks. The requirement follows the recommendation made by doctors last month that people start wearing two masks. Some of the transit rules worth noting: Bandanas and scarves do not qualify. A neck gaiter must be two layers or folded to make two layers. A face shield can be used if it’s worn with a mask. Travelers two years or younger don’t have to wear one. As routine as grabbing your daily cup of coffee, masking up is almost second nature. Pamela Elliot was well prepared during her coffee run Tuesday in Bloomington. “I have little bag full of them [laughs]!” Elliot said. But for how many we own and how often we wear them, doctors remain concerned....

    The House of Mouse is reminding visitors that face masks are still required to enter Downtown Disney, even for those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. The masks, which must have at least two layers of fabric and fully cover the nose and mouth, are to be worn at all times by anyone 2 and older, except while eating or drinking, according to the theme park’s website. Disneyland further clarified that visitors may wear face coverings with clear plastic panels that make it easier to read lips and view facial expressions. Those who have been vaccinated are not exempt from the mask rules. Neck gaiters, bandanas and face coverings with valves, mesh or holes are not allowed. Neither are costume masks. All visitors must go through a temperature screening before entering Downtown Disney, and employees are required to complete a health screening and temperature check before showing up...

    Masks have proved to be dramatically effective in slowing the spread of the coronavirus. But is a cloth mask enough? Should we be wearing two masks? And how about the medical-grade N95 face coverings? Though transmission of the virus has slowed markedly in Los Angeles County, the risk of spreading the disease remains high — and the presence of new, potentially more contagious variants only heightens the danger. Science Face mask trial didn’t stop coronavirus spread, but it shows why more mask-wearing is needed Science Face mask trial didn’t stop coronavirus spread, but it shows why more mask-wearing is needed A clinical trial of the coronavirus-fighting ability of face masks had inconclusive results, but researchers say it strengthens the case for universal mask use.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said that former President Trump was a 'pretty macho guy' when it came to him not wanting to be seen wearing a mask, adding that it was 'unfortunate' that so many Americans were inspired by that position.  Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease official, was commenting on how difficult it was to convey the importance of masks to the at-the-time president. 'It's really tough to get into his head, but I think what was going on with him is he was not interested in the outbreak,' he explained to The Atlantic. 'The outbreak to him was an inconvenient truth that he didn't accept as a truth. It's something that got in the way of what he really wanted to do.' Dr. Anthony Fauci described Trump as being a 'pretty macho guy' for his reasoning as to why the former president was hardly seen in a mask...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci once again got into a bit of back and forth with a Fox News anchor on Tuesday, this time pushing back against Sandra Smith’s complaint that the “goalposts keep moving” on mask use. During an appearance on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom on Monday, Fauci—who now serves as the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden—shot down anchor Bill Hemmer’s attempt to make the interview about President Donald Trump, noting that Hemmer’s colleague Dana Perino had just said they should “put that behind us” and move forward. Just a day later, Fauci once again showed up on Fox, this time sitting down for a comprehensive interview with Smith and co-anchor John Roberts. For the most part, the interview was fairly collegial, as the two anchors focused their questions on the Biden administration’s coronavirus policies and vaccine distribution plans. Towards the end of the conversation, however, it got a...
    A health expert from Harvard made his case Tuesday that everyone in the U.S. should wear N95 face masks in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. Joseph G. Allen, the director of the Healthy Buildings program at the university, penned an op-ed in the Washington Post and said there’s "no reason any essential worker—and really, everyone in the country – should go without masks that filter 95%." BIDEN DECLINES TO TELL CHICAGO TEACHERS REFUSING TO TEACH IN-PERSON TO GO BACK TO WORK His pitch came a day after Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top disease expert in the U.S., said in an interview that wearing two cloth masks "likely" offers more protection for the wearer. "So if you have a physical covering with one layer, you put another layer on, it just makes common sense that it likely would be more effective. That’s the reason why you see people either double masking...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Jeremy Howard knows a thing or two about masks. He joined us often in the early days of the pandemic and did everything from tutorials on how to make your own mask to explaining in visual detail why they're so important.He's a research scientist at USF and founded Masks4All trying to spread awareness about the effectiveness of masks.OK, now that we've established he knows his face coverings, we have a whole new slate of questions to pepper him with:Are cloth masks still effective?It depends. Cloth masks can be much more effective if you're able to add a filter to the inner layer of the mask. Howard says filter material is pretty readily available online these days and it has similar qualities to N95 masks. Also, cloth masks with nose wires can help close the gap around your nose. "Without those two things, a cloth mask doesn't...

    (CNN)Democratic Rep. Adriano Espaillat of New York said Thursday he has tested positive for Covid-19 and is isolating at home, he announced in a series of tweets."I am following guidance from my physician and quarantining at home after having tested positive for COVID-19," he tweeted.

I have continued to be tested regularly, wear my mask and follow the recommended guidelines."Espaillat said in his tweets he received the second dose of his Covid-19 vaccine last week.

    A Trump supporter smiles as she forces her fellow passengers to deplane Air travel is a bad enough experience right now, without having to put up with Trump-supporting assholes deliberately attempting to make everyone more miserable, as passengers on Frontier Airlines’ flight from Seattle to Denver last month found out. The airline’s policy, like that of other U.S. airlines, requires masks to be worn in-flight to help prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the hermetically sealed and tightly-packed environment of a passenger jet. But because two women (both wearing Trump garb, including MAGA hats) wanted either to make a political statement, or possibly because they were simply the unfortunate products of rotten parenting, every passenger paid the price. The pair initially refused to vacate the plane, forcing the pilot to regretfully announce that all passengers would be forced to deplane in order to effect their removal. As the...

    People who refuse to wear a protective face mask in violation of coronavirus restrictions will be jailed for up to two years in Ethiopia. The announcement comes amid concern that citizens are becoming lax over COVID-19 after a state of emergency was lifted.  Restrictions in the country prohibit shaking hands, not wearing a mask in a public place, seating more than three people at a table or not keeping 'two adult steps' - around six feet - apart. The new law permits fines and imprisonment for up to two years for anyone who breaks the restrictions.  A respiratory therapist gives a training session on a mechanical ventilator for health professionals - all wearing masks - preparing to treat the coronavirus disease.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has threatened to fine people $15,000 if they violate a ban on mass gatherings and $1,000 for those refusing to wear masks in the hotspot neighborhoods being shutdown for the next two weeks due to rising COVID-19 rates.  His threat came a day after new rules were announced by the state that will affect residents living in parts of Brooklyn and Queens.

    Igor Derysh October 6, 2020 3:21PM (UTC) President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani repeatedly coughed throughout a Monday interview with Fox News as he attacked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for urging Americans to listen to scientific experts and wear masks amid the coronavirus pandemic.  Giuliani told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that he was awaiting his test results after working in close contact with Trump and other advisers on the president's debate preparation team, who have since tested positive for COVID-19. : "I actually got one about two hours ago," Giuliani said, adding that his first test was negative. "I haven't gotten the results yet. I went to NYU. I got one of those all the way in the back of the nose tests." He then went on to criticize Biden for telling Americans to follow the advice of scientific experts on the coronavirus. "I would say to...
    Sarah K Burris October 5, 2020 8:21PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story The support staff in the White House mansion are starting to test positive for COVID-19 after the president, first lady and the staff in the West Wing has spread the virus around the building. The New York Times' Maggie Haberman explained that two housekeepers have tested positive. They reportedly didn't come in contact with the president or the first family, which is concerning as it means the virus has spread through the building. Trump's team frequently doesn't wear masks in public nor do they wear them inside the halls of the White House. They assumed that because they are tested daily, they are safe. : The Coronavirus Task Force and the CDC told people to wear masks for exactly this reason. "When their tests came back positive, they were told to use 'discretion' in discussing it,"...
    Last March, a person with mild COVID-19 symptoms went to a two-and-a-half-hour long chorale practice in Skagit Valley, Washington. In the weeks that followed, more than fifty people — nearly everyone who attended that rehearsal — contracted the disease and two people died. Shelly Miller, a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Colorado Boulder, led a recent study of that rehearsal, one of the nation’s first super-spreader events. The study states that singing indoors and unmasked can swiftly spread COVID-19 via microscopic airborne particles known as aerosols. In the study, she explains that although members of the chorale took precautions, like using hand sanitizer, avoiding touching each other or surfaces, and propping doors open, they didn’t wear masks. Members of the chorale were interviewed as part of the study, and researchers concluded that there simply were not enough opportunities for droplets and infected surfaces, known as fomites,...

    Two of these kids are doing their own terrible thing Vice President Mike Pence has been touring around with Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos in recent weeks in the hopes of promoting the Trump administration’s rush to reopen the country, using children and teachers as the guinea pigs for this process.

They took their masks off to tell the children how excited they were to blah blah blah and … take some photos. Unlike most schools in the country, Thales...

    Two Florida mayors that govern Miami and Miami-Dade county encouraged their residents on Thursday to wear masks inside in an attempt to lower the transmission rate of COVID-19 between family members. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez (R) explained that while the city's number of daily new cases is down, the virus is still being spread easily through households, as multigenerational households are commonplace in Miami. “I would tell our residents — and this is voluntary, this is not something that we can mandate — that they should consider, particularly if they have a multigenerational household, wearing masks indoors at times with their multigenerational residents and also respecting social distance when they’re at home,” Suarez told reporters.

    Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum pressed Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday for why President Donald Trump didn’t promote face masks earlier in the coronavirus pandemic. The White House adviser joined MacCallum on America’s Newsroom to defend the administration’s leadership on the pandemic, but she took time to take a shot at “press people who are asking questions that have nothing to do with the development of vaccines and therapeutics.” As Conway touted the return of coronavirus press briefings, she showered praise on Trump for urging Americans to wear a mask and follow public health guidelines. “I would say to all those people out there who are resisting wearing a mask, listen folks, it costs nothing, it takes two seconds, and you will get your liberties back sooner if you wear your mask,” Conway said. Trump has shot down calls for a mask mandate, mocked others for wearing them, and made...
