Are We Heading Back To Mandatory Masking? COVID-19 Hospitalizations On The Rise
Written by Tariq on August 25, 2023
With the COVID-19 hospitalizations increasing for the fifth straight week, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Facilities have reintroduced mandatory masking. Two major hospitals in New York as well as health care company Kaiser Permanente at its Santa Rosa, California, have brought back masking. Movie studio Lionsgate is also reportedly resuming a mask requirement at its Santa Monica headquarters. In Georgia, a small liberal arts college is requiring masks for two weeks as COVID-19 spread among students. Morris Brown College also limited events on campus. It’s unclear how many more institutions will reimplement mask mandates given how highly politicized the measure has become.
