Follow the science?
Or, follow the politician’s word blindly?

What was once being labelled as conspiracy theorists for suggesting that COVID-19 mandates like lockdowns and masks weren’t helping, it now appears the narrative has changed thanks to science.
Speaking on the network, Dr. Leana Wen, CNN’s Medical Analyst, admitted, “There was a time and is a place for pandemic restrictions. But when they were put in, it was always with the understanding that they would be removed as soon as we can. And in this case, circumstances have changed. Case counts are declining. Also, science has changed. We know that vaccines protect very well against Omicron, which is the dominant variant, everyone five and older have widespread access to vaccines.”
Dr. Wen, who suggested the science had changed somehow, also discussed masks. “And we also know about one-way masking, the idea that even if other people around you are not wearing masks, if you wear a high-quality mask that also protects you the wearer too. So in this case, I’m not saying… and I don’t think really anyone is saying that no one should ever wear masks, but rather that the responsibility should shift from a government mandate imposed from the state or the local district or the school rather it should shift to an individual responsibility by the family who can still decide that their child can wear a mask if needed.”
