    Air travel hits another pandemic high, flight delays grow Jussie Smollett lawyers get more time to prepare arguments NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City hit a major milestone Monday, with 10 million COVID vaccines adminstered. Mayor Bill de Blasio says vaccines are key to stopping the spread of the Delta variant in the city. The mayor won’t mandate masks, but strongly recommends everyone wear a mask indoors in public settings. It comes after the CDC‘s latest guidance. As CBS2’s Andrea Grymes reports, de Blasio says the city’s policy is vaccine-centric, and masking is part of it.

    Tucker Carlson has argued that Americans should start asking people to remove their masks outside because science shows there isn't a reason to wear them and it makes other people feel uncomfortable.  During his Tucker Carlson Tonight show on Monday night, the Fox News host said the fact that Americans are being told to still wear masks outside amid the COVID-19 pandemic 'should shock us'. 'The next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or the bike path, don't hesitate. Ask politely but firmly: 'would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason to wear it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable',' Carlson said.  'We should do that, and we should keep doing it, until wearing a mask outdoors is roughly as socially accepted as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It's repulsive. Don't do it around other people. That's the message we should send because it's true.'  Tucker Carlson said during his show on Monday night that the fact Americans are being told to still wear masks outside amid the COVID-19...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reacted to statements that people who have received the coronavirus vaccine still have to wear masks because they could still spread the virus by stating that no one has actually proven that vaccinated people can still spread the virus, “They just say, unless you can prove the opposite, you can’t be free and you have to be huddled in your basement wearing a mask.” Paul said, [relevant remarks begin around 6:05] “[T]he thing is, they don’t prove that that happens. They just say, unless you can prove the opposite, you can’t be free and you have to be huddled in your basement wearing a mask. And I’m the opposite, you get your vaccine, you’ve had your second dose, you’re two weeks out, throw away your mask. If you’ve had the disease and you’re a young person, go to restaurants, go out and visit with your friends, do not hunker down in a basement by yourself, go to school, by all means, let’s get back to normal....
    Wearing a used mask could be more dangerous than not wearing one at all when it comes to warding off COVID-19, a new study has found. A new three-layer surgical mask is 65 percent efficient in filtering particles in the air — but when used, that number drops to 25 percent, according to the study published Tuesday in the Physics of Fluids. Researchers from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and California Baptist University say that masks slow down airflow, making people more susceptible to breathing in particles — and a dirty face mask can’t effectively filter out the tiniest of droplets. "It is natural to think that wearing a mask, no matter new or old, should always be better than nothing," said author Jinxiang Xi. "Our results show that this belief is only true for particles larger than 5 micrometers, but not for fine particles smaller than 2.5 micrometers." To reach their findings, researchers used a computer model of a person wearing a pleated three-layer surgical mask to track how the face covering affected airflow and how particles passed through. They also...

    Everyone is adjusting to the “new normal” brought about by the pandemic in their own ways, but as we’ve seen time and time again, some people find it difficult to compromise. But one California restaurant flat-out refuses to follow the rules at all. Hide In a now-viral TikTok, actress Sammi Hanratty shared her family’s encounter, and subsequent frustration, with a restaurant that refused to follow the guidelines in place to protect Californians from COVID-19. Hide Hanratty, known for playing Kassidi on Shameless and varous roles in family films, told viewers that her dad went to Basilico’s Pasta e Vino in Huntington Beach to pick up an order they had placed over the phone. “He was wearing his mask because, you know, we’re in a pandemic, and my dad’s in his 60s, and he’s also in the medical field, so he has to be safe, not only for himself, but also for his patients,” Hanratty explains. But once he arrived at the restaurant, Hanratty said her father noticed there were so many people dining in that it was likely “past 100%...
    CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta spoke with Jake Tapper Wednesday about President Donald Trump returning to the Oval Office and bluntly said the president should not be there right now. Trump is back in the Oval Office after working in the residence. He is continuing to be treated for the coronavirus. The White House has said they’re taking precautions: WH is preparing for Trump’s return to Oval, spox tells pooler @meridithmcgraw: “We have ways for him to do that, we have PPE that we can use. And we can interact with him standing back like you’re standing back. And people can wear masks, or goggles or gloves…” — Annie Karni (@anniekarni) October 7, 2020 Gupta said Trump “should be in isolation” right now, explaining, “It’s not an exact science but at least ten days after people start having symptoms is typically the infectious sort of period. They’ve got to assume that he has the virus, he’s shedding the virus, so he is putting, you know, those people who are going to be at risk.” “Is he wearing a mask?...
    Neck gaiters, typically worn by snow enthusiasts for warmth and by outdoorsmen to keep dust and debris out of the mouth, have been endorsed by some groups as suitable to wear amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “Try using a neck gaiter — a piece of material tied in a loop — made of stretchy synthetic fabric. Fold it into multiple layers if the material is thin,” WebMD says. But a new story says nuh-uh. A group of researchers from Duke University recently conducted a study on the effectiveness of masks, ranging from hospital-grade N95 respirators to simple bandanas. “Of the 14 masks and other coverings tested, the study found that some easily accessible cotton cloth masks are about as effective as standard surgical masks, while popular alternatives such as neck gaiters made of thin, stretchy material may be worse than not wearing a mask at all,” The Washington Post reported. The test was simple: Researchers used a laser-like device, a cardboard box and a cell phone camera to capture individual particles released from a person’s mouth when they speak. Test subjects...
    Neck gaiters used to cover a person's face might be worse than not wearing a mask at all, according to a recent study. Mandates for mask use in public during the coronavirus pandemic, amplified by a worldwide shortage of commercial supplies, have led to the widespread use of homemade masks and other face coverings, according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. “You can really see the mask is doing something,” said one of the study’s co-authors, Warren S. Warren, a professor at Duke University. “There’s a lot of controversy, and people say, ‘Well, masks don’t do anything.’ Well, the answer is some don’t, but most do.” The federal government has recommended the public wear face coverings to slow the spread of the coronavirus. "Whether you like the mask or not, they have an impact," President Trump said last month. The Duke study tested 14 different types of masks, including those with N-95 respirators, cloth coverings, and neck gaiters. The cloth coverings were deemed to be most effective in containing the spray of...
    “No one should be fighting over wearing a mask," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Monday. “What we should be doing is ... what is patriotic, which is, when you can’t socially distance, wear a mask,” McEnany told "Fox & Friends." McEnany said President Trump wears a mask when he cannot socially distance. “He’s done it several times. That’s where he stands. That is the American people. It’s the right thing to do if you’re standing close to someone, and no one should be fighting over it nevertheless.” CLICK HERE FOR FULL CORONAVIRUS MAP McEnany's comments came after the footage went viral on social media appearing to show a woman yelling at a supermarket employee – and threatening to beat up the worker – over the store's mask policy.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellProgressives zero in on another House chairman in primary GOP committee chair: 'It would help' if Trump would wear a mask occasionally Pelosi: Nationwide mask mandate 'definitely long overdue' MORE (R-Ky.) said on Monday that wearing a mask cannot be stigmatized, calling wearing one in public part of the country's new routines amid the coronavirus pandemic. McConnell, speaking from the Senate floor, said until there was a vaccine Americans needed to find a "middle ground" between widespread lockdowns and life pre-coronavirus. "We need new routines, new rhythms and new strategies for this new middle ground in between. It's the task of each family, each small business, each employer and all levels of government to apply common sense and make this happen. To name just on example, we must have no stigma — none — about wearing masks when we leave our homes and come near other people," he said. "Wearing simple face coverings is not about protecting ourselves. It is about protecting everyone we encounter," he added. McConnell has encouraged mask wearing...
