    Joe Biden emphasized social distancing during his CNN town hall meeting on Thursday, but when he thought he was off camera, he violated his own rule. Biden and moderator Anderson Cooper were positioned a significant distance apart on the outdoor stage in Moosic, Pensylvania. As Cooper went to a break, the camera panned out to show the crowd, and Biden could be seen approaching Cooper – closer than six feet – and appeared to be close enough to whisper in his ear.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The gulf between President Donald Trump and public health officials over wearing face masks keeps widening, undercutting medical experts who say consistent face covering is one of the best tools — short of a vaccine — to fight the spread of the coronavirus. Trump has gone back and forth on protective masks in the roughly six months since the virus has taken root in the U.S., muddying the message from doctors and other health experts. White House officials insist that Trump has always supported wearing masks, but the president’s own words and actions tell a very different — and sometimes puzzling — story. He dismissed mask wearing for himself, then allowed himself to be seen wearing one...

    Thursday, Fox News Channel senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano weighed in on a nationwide mask mandate after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden suggested he would have the authority to implement one if elected. Napolitano on “Fox & Friends” said such a mandate is “absolutely” unconstitutional.  According to the former New Jersey Superior Court judge, governors and presidents can urge people to wear a mask and lead by example, but they cannot order them to wear one. “Absolutely not,” Napolitano advised when asked if Biden has the legal authority to order a mask mandate. “Not even a close call.” He continued, “President Trump knows he can’t do it. I don’t think he would even if he could. There is absolutely no...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden admitted that while he believes that he would have the legal authority as president to implement a nationwide mask mandate, he “can’t guarantee you that yet.” Speaking to reporters Wednesday in Wilmington, Del., the former vice president remarked that “there is a question” that he believed “can be answered in the positive” over “whether I can mandate over state lines that every single state has to comply.” Biden made the comments after being asked by a CNN reporter how he would implement a national mask mandate. “Our legal team thinks I can do that, based upon the degree to which there’s a crisis in those states, and how bad things are for the country,” Biden...

    What are the rules on masks in schools? Whether students have to wear masks, and the trouble they could face if they don’t, depends on where they go to school. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages masks for most students, especially when they are less than 6 feet apart. The exceptions are children younger than 2 and those with breathing problems or who can’t remove the mask without help. But how states and districts interpret the guidance varies. Ohio mandates masks across the board in K-12 schools. Massachusetts requires masks for students in second grade and higher, and encourages them for younger children.

    The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that masks are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 — even more effective than a vaccine. Director Robert Redfield, testifying before a Senate committee, urged everyone in America to wear masks in public, saying the pandemic could be controlled in six to 12 weeks if everyone complied. "These face masks are the most important, powerful public health tool we have," Redfield said. "And I will continue to appeal to all Americans, all individuals in our country, to embrace these face coverings. I've said it, if we did it for six, eight, 10, 12 weeks, we'd bring this pandemic under control. These, actually...

    Reddit/@Wildchild0822 Protesters staged an anti-mask demonstration at a Target in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A group of anti-mask protesters went viral after staging a demonstration at a Target on September 15 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Other shoppers recorded videos of the protesters as they marched through the store, shouting for everyone to remove their masks. The governor of Florida has not issued a statewide mask mandate and resisted calls to do so as the number of coronavirus cases rose sharply over the summer. But officials in other areas of the state have taken the opposite approach. Broward County, where this protest took place, is among those where masks are mandatory in public. Target also requires shoppers nationwide to...
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevent Director Robert Redfield told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday that not only do face masks work to protect people from coronavirus, they might work even better than an eventual vaccine might. During a hearing on coronavirus response efforts, Sen. Jack Reed, D-R.I., criticized President Trump for typically not wearing a mask and holding events where attendees did not wear them. He then asked witnesses if Trump was "undercutting" an important step that Americans can take to protect themselves. Redfield did not take the bait, but he still had plenty to say about masks.

    This is the moment cops dragged a furious man out of a school board meeting for refusing to wear a mask in South Dakota. The meeting was being held in Mitchell, South Dakota, where Reed Bender was asked to either wear a mask or leave the building.

    Pressed on his lack of mask wearing by an ABC News town hall questioner, President Donald Trump said he does wear one occasionally but then noted that others have doubted the efficacy of masks. In a follow-up, moderator George Stephanopoulos pushed Trump to name some of these people who felt were worth citing for their distrust in masks, to which the president said: “waiters.” Julie Bart, a retired chemical engineer from Pennsylvania, who identified herself as a Clinton voter, noted that masks have been proven to help stop the transmission of Covid. So, she then asked why Trump has resisted a national mask mandate and why he personally is rarely seen wearing a mask. “Well I do wear them...
    President Donald Trump on Tuesday repeated that he did not want to issue a national mask mandate during the coronavirus pandemic. “There is, by the way, a lot of people don’t want to wear masks,” Trump said. “There are a lot of people that think the masks are not good.” The president commented on masks after a voter from an ABC News town hall hosted by George Stephanopoulos asked him why he did not support a national mask mandate. He recalled witnessing waiters serving at a restaurant touching their masks to adjust them and then touching the plates. “The concept of a mask is good, but … you are constantly touching it, touching your face, touching plates,” he said. “There...

    Police had to physically remove a South Dakota man from a school board meeting Monday night because he refused to wear a mask. One of the primary topics of the meeting was public opposition to the district's mask mandate, according to the Mitchell Republic.

Bender would not put on a mask even though the district offered to provide him one. When Bender wouldn't comply, Superintendent Joe Graves called the police.

    Lawmakers in Pennsylvania are considering a bill that would make not wearing a mask in public against the law. Senate Bill 1287 says that failing to wear a mask or another face covering during the pandemic would be akin to "recklessly endangering another person." It would be a second-degree misdemeanor. "Failure to adhere to emergency order. A person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree if the person willfully fails to wear a mask or other face covering that is necessary to protect public health as a result of a declaration by the Governor," the bill text reads. State Rep. Tim ONeal, a Republican, told NorthcentralPA.com he opposes the legislation. "While we should all wear masks, keep our social distance,...
    Sean Rayford/Getty Images As I predicted near the start of the pandemic, the response to the virus has caused America to be more clearly divided between “red” and “blue” factions than at any time in our modern history. Nothing is more emblematic of this dangerous reality than the dramatic difference in the way that mask mandates are viewed within these two worlds. People in red/conservative states are far less in favor of government mask mandates than those in the blue/liberal states (today has even been declared a day of “Mask Off” protests in some portions of the country). This disparity was most obvious at the recent political conventions and campaign events, showing that Donald Trump supporters are very likely to...
