A Mask Too Far

Hotline readers have known for over a year that the coronavirus is almost never transmitted outdoors. But that hasn’t stopped ultraliberal cities and states from adopting “outdoor” mask mandates, and until now their favorite health officials and gurus have been more than happy to go along – even though there’s never been any plausible science to back it up.

Now, suddenly 10 days before President Joe Biden’s “100 day mask challenge” is set to end, simultaneous stories calling for an end to outdoor masking have appeared in Slate, the Atlantic, the New England Journal of Medicine, and in the Twitter feeds of lockdown gurus like Drs. Monica GandhiMarc Lipsitch, and Ashish Jha. Even reliable Biden journohacks such as Peter Baker and Joe Scarborough joined the echo chamber.

We’ll go out on a limb here with a prediction: The White House is going to call for an end to OUTDOOR masking and an extension – possibly another 100 days – on INDOOR masking when Biden gives his big 100-day valedictory on April 29. 

But we’ve noticed that liberals LOVE wearing masks outdoors, indoors, in their cars, in the bathtub so we doubt that they will stop wearing them. For the left, a mask is akin to a “Biden for President” button.
