The off ramp

There has been a whole lot of tune changing in recent days, with various leaders suddenly interested in letting people go about their lives. Kathy Hochul, governor of New York has lifted indoor mask mandates. CNN’s doctor, Leana Wen is in catch-up mode, saying it is time to end mask mandates. Dr Wen said people should be allowed to assess their own risk, since the “science has changed. Twitter had thoughts for her: it’s not the science that has changed, but the polls.

We’re not sure what science Dr Wen is referring to, as the CDC says its masking guidance has not changed, encouraging schools to make students mask up. These high schoolers in Illinois voted with their feet. Nevada elementary school kids had the best reaction at the news that they would no longer have to wear masks in school.
